So Kumar, well done for the phenomenal progress made since we started. Just for anyone who’s reading this to understand what has your training and progress been in the past?
So I used to do all of these fitness classes, Orange Theory was one of them, and when I worked out a lot then I would feel like going out, drinking and eating more. All of it just undoing the workout I just did so I never saw results and didn't even know how to get to the shape that I wanted to be.
What epiphany did you have that changed things for you and put you on the right track?
I think the major thing was that what you eat determines the outcome of what you see. Workout is going to help you get there sooner or later but the more important part is what you eat. When you spoke about hey, 6 days a week eat like this and then 1 day a week do whatever you want I don't care. When I heard that I was like I've never tried that maybe I should do it. And at first I thought but it sounds hard I don't know if I'll be able to do it but then you walked me into the grocery shop and showed me ok eat this, don't eat this and I really needed that. That was brilliant and from that moment I could see it for myself.
What was your initial progress once we started training together?
So after the first 2-3 weeks of training and eating this way I started seeing increase in mental focus and energy, physically I was a bit lower on energy but then I got used to that as well. And man, that was life changing. Fast forward now, I think the 6+1 so eating no rubbish for 6 days and eating whatever I want on 1 day works incredibly well.
What is the end result of all the work and effort you've put into this?
So in 20 weeks I've lost from 109kg to 96kg which is the biggest success that I've seen on myself ever. But more than the physical accomplishment what I've accomplished is being consistent and I'm seeing the benefit of this in other things like learning some new things, picking a new project or whatever your goal is. I'm simply more consistent with everything. And I would say that's a big transformation for me because earlier when I was thinking about doing something it was just thoughts and I would never execute. But now things are moving forward on all fronts and I simply get stuff done.
Do you think getting similar results is possible for people who are busy both professionally and personally?
I think that no matter how busy you are or how tight your schedule is or even if you have lots of free time if you get into training and eating right you can get your own sort of results and you can do at least 50% more with your life compared to what you're doing now. And the time you spend training and eating better will ultimately give you more time because you're razor focused this way and things take you less time to complete.
