According to MedicineNet, weight loss is a decrease in body weight resulting from either voluntary (diet, exercise) or involuntary (illness) circumstances. It also refers to a reduction of the total body mass, due to a mean loss of fluid, body fat or adipose tissue or lean mass, namely bone mineral deposits, muscle, tendon, and other connective tissue.
Losing weight is a struggle to many but a 38-year-old Singaporean proves that it was not too late to get started.
Sean Seah, a best-selling author, and financial investor challenged himself last February 9 in a video in which he decided to “eat happily and burn after”. He was opted to do the One Punch Man workout.
This workout originated from a Japanese anime superhero character, Saitama a.k.a One Punch Man, gained immense strength after following a workout plan every day for three years. The workout is an intense 100 push-ups, 100 sit-ups, 100 squats, and a 10-km run every day. But thinking it is too much, Sean broke it up into levels. He started off his challenge on Feb 10 at level five then gradually increasing the intensity over 30 days.
He weighed 70kg (around 154lbs). After a week, Seah lost 2.8kg and his visceral fat rating and body age dropped to 9 (-1) and 37 (-3) respectively. By the end of 30 days, he weighed 141 lbs, with a chiseled six pack and a highly reduced level of body fat.
For breakfast, he eats siew mai, chee cheong fan / Kopi o kosong or milo kosong. Sometimes, he starts his day with oats, fruits, and soya milk. For lunch and dinner, he just eat a normal meal but avoiding carbs and sugar.
Seah also encourages people to try at a level compatible with their current fitness abilities like he did. You don’t need to be hard on yourself.
