Fat Leo

By Leo Gura - April 17, 2019

Folks have been asking me to release a photo of when I used to be fat. Some even accused me of making up the story that I used to be fat. Well, I was in fact fat from about age 9 to age 21.

I didn’t have fat photos of myself because: 1) Back then there were no cell phones or selfie pics, 2) I didn’t like taking photos of myself when I was fat.

But anyhow, I finally found an old photo at my Mom’s house. So here you go:


235 lbs at 6’2″. 20 years old. About one year after this photo was taken I lost 65 pounds in 5 months, dropping to 170 lbs. I’ve kept it off ever since. Right now I’m at 180 lbs.

This was accomplished through diet changes & lots of gym exercise, including cardio and weights. I worked out 5 days a week for about 10 years. For the past 2 years I have not worked out at all and still keep the weight off because my diet is about 10x cleaner than it used to be, such that exercise for purposes of weight-maintenance is unnecessary. But exercise is still good for health of course.

Big change is possible if you set your mind on it. The most important aspects of accomplishing a change like this are: 1) vision, 2) discipline, and 3) focus.

Because my videos are so abstract and metaphysical sometimes people overlook the meat of this work. Personal development is very practical stuff with very tangible results. Don’t let the abstract explanations fool you. You must also be results-oriented. Get shit done by whatever means necessary. Claw your way up Maslow’s Hierarchy. If you’re new to personal development you need to dial in the basics like health, diet, career, finances, living environment, family situation, dating, etc. Don’t get so metaphysical that you neglect all that. You will find awakening impossible if you can’t even stop eating junk food or can’t earn enough to pay your rent.
