Kyle Rath – 60kgs and a new balanced life [YOU CAN live life well]

YOU-CAN_LOGOWaking up in the morning was probably the worst. The sound of vertebrae cracking like burning sticks greeted me as I sat up to face a day of physical agony.

It was as if bramble sunk beneath my skin; its thorns enveloping my muscles. A suffocated airway and incinerated throat completes the morning rise. I am 23 years old.

I received my BA hons. degree in March 2012. I graduated cum-laude and was working in an industry that promised massive financial growth. My personal life and health stood at zero. I was 135 kgs at that point. I hadn’t met a guy of my age any heavier than 115kgs. I was embarrassed and always depressed. Gradually, I started hating work and would reward myself for ‘making it through the day’ with two portions of KFC pops, large chips, a McFlurry and two cheeseburgers.


“They are small cheeseburgers,” I would tell myself. “Best get two”. This would happen 5 days a week, complimented by a sausage roll or Nandos’ for lunch.

I quit my Job in September 2012. This time, on my way home, I decided to reward myself with a rather expensive present. A week later I was working out on my R20 000 elliptical machine.

This method is not for everyone, but I figured that if I spent a small fortune on it, I would feel too guilty not to use it. Two months later I had lost a wonderfully ‘pathetic’ total of 1.5kgs and I became despondent.

I had been working out every day, sweating like crazy and I felt that my progress didn’t reflect my input. I then found a website called My Fitness Pal.

That was a turning point in my weight loss campaign. The site encouraged me to log my food and explained the concept of calorie deficit and control. It became a challenge: make sure to be at least 200 calories under 500-calorie deficit allowance.

I became aware of what I was eating, and in order to win the game, I stopped eating food that destroyed my calorie limit. The rest is history.

May 2013 I reached my goal of 60kgs weight loss.

At 75kgs, my blood pressure, cholesterol and back are all A-ok.

Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dine like a pauper is my motto.

Snacks in between really do quench late night munchies. Secondly, I follow the one-ingredient rule. I try eating items that consist of one ingredient such as eggs, fruit, nuts etc.

The more ingredients I see listed on a product, the further away I stay.

Cheat days were, and still are non-existent. Its like telling an alcoholic they are allowed to drink on a Sunday – for me at least.

I am far more energetic and lively throughout the day. At night, depression is less severe and I’ve been told I no longer sound as if I am about to choke as I snore. I wake up less during the night, but waking up in the morning is probably the best!

Now in August 2013 I am still on track – still at goal – I am at the moment working on strength and tone… Building a bit of muscle.

So that is now the new journey I am on.

Good luck on your journey!
