This photo was taken a mere 31 days into Peterson's new plan.
At this point, he’d lost 21 pounds and was already looking much leaner. Peterson wrote on Instagram that he was “feeling good” about the progress he’d made.
But he was not about to stop there.
And now, a total of 82 pounds later, he has made a mind-blowing transformation.
Look at this muscular man!
“I went from having a real dadbod to having a college kid’s physique,” Peterson told the Daily Mail. “Since going from fat to lean it’s made everything better, my hair and skin look healthier, you can see my jawline instead of chubby cheeks, and I have abs.”
Now, Peterson is able to run up those hiking trails with his kids without stopping.
When asked how he managed to not only lose so much weight but turn into a sculpted fitness wonder, he said, “The honest to God answer is I did the work!”
He hiked and worked out up to three hours per day and stuck to his diet, no exceptions.
Peterson learned that he had an intolerance to carbs, so he switched to a high-protein keto diet that cut out nearly all carbs except for fruit and vegetables.
