On September 8th, a 34 year old Korean man shared a picture timeline of his diet on a popular online community called Pann.

His dramatic change in appearance and weight loss of 15kg resulted in netizens being amazed his transformation.

One netizen wrote:  

"He has managed to age backwards..."

According to a post in Koreaboo, this is what the 34-year-old did to achieve his youthful looks and slimmer body:  

“Umm I’ve never really posted anything here so I don’t really know what to say but I’ll share a timeline of my weight loss journey. I decided to go on a diet purely to boost my self esteem. In their twenties people are more concerned about appeals towards the opposite gender but as people approach their mid 30’s self esteem becomes the topic of discussion very frequently. That’s why I decided to test myself. Since I work as a programmer I rarely left my desk and after long years of working in such a condition my body felt like it wasn’t my own.”

He shared 3 tips to his successful dieting.

1. Enjoy walking. Even if you have no time to exercise walking to and from your scheduled meetings can give you enough exercise.

2. For meals try to eat once a day in the late after noon. BUT eat whatever you want till you are full at around 1:00 PM after that drink protein shakes when hungry.

3. Always keep a bottle of barley tea at hand. It suppresses your appetite and provides enough vitamin and keeps you hydrated.

“I simply kept to this rule and did not exercise too much or starve myself. The first 6 months of dieting was the hardest. The important thing is to fix the mindset of ‘I’m going to eat because it’s meal time’ only eat when you absolutely need to. I deeply respect people who can lose weight eating 3 meals a day.”

After seeing his transformation, netizens were amazed and some wrote:
