A 17-year-old Reddit user who goes by the name 'Dupersupermeth' recently posted about his incredible weight loss journey. Over a period of 12 months, the young man shed an impressive 130lbs and has now reached a comfortable 190lbs.

According to the user, his weight loss journey began during his sophomore year of high school. Initially weighing in at 300lbs, he soon reached his heaviest weight of 320lbs. Feeling depressed about his weight, he began to make changes to his diet and exercise routine.

The Reddit user's weight loss strategy involved a combination of cardio and weight lifting. During the first two months of his weight loss journey, he focused solely on cardio for an hour a day. After that, he began to incorporate weight lifting into his routine. Now, he primarily lifts weights to gain muscle, although he does do some cardio to maintain weight.

The young man also had to make significant changes to his diet to achieve his weight loss goals. He cut out unhealthy foods, including chocolate milk and soda, and began to limit his caloric intake to around 1,500 calories per day. Over time, he increased his caloric intake and now aims to consume at least 3,000 calories a day.

The Reddit user's inspiring weight loss journey should serve as a testament to the power of dedication and exercise. By committing to regular exercise and making healthy changes to his diet, he was able to transform his body and reach his weight loss goals in just one year. Anyone looking to lose weight and improve their health can take inspiration from his story and try out these strategies for themselves.
