Get Healthy In 5 Minutes! New Video

For the past 2 months I’ve been working on an animated video to try and help condense as much information as possible to convince people that weight loss is achievable and not as hard as they may think. This was a two man job and I couldn’t have done it without Howard Yu, the brilliant animator who brought my words and quirks to life. Check out his site here:
I strongly feel that with every passing year people are becoming increasingly unhealthy and will eventually develop some health problems if they stick with their current lifestyles.
I took this on because I realized some people may not want to back track and read all the blog posts or go through different sites to get an idea on where to start. Well, now, you don’t have an excuse anymore.
I would like to ask for your help in posting or embedding this video on your sites, twitters, igs, facebooks, snapchats, etc, so that we can reach a maximum number of people and hopefully change some lives or give someone that push they’ve been waiting for.
You can watch and grab the video from here:

Here is to a healthier world!

      For the past 8 years nahirapan ako with my weight. now im 22. i have never considered minding my weight seriously til i followed thefatkidinside via sir heussaf as well as raymond guttierrez on instagram.

      The heaviest i had was 103 kilos the time i joined BPO industry. life has been so bitter knowing im obese and not good looking. The results of being obese is something i get used to for years.
      My father passed away last may, then i decided to go back home in province. i was so depressed then for months. i was like a crossbreed of an elephant and a whale for locking myself in my room for a month.

      Moving on,it came one day like in a snap after browsing instagram seeing thefatkidinside and raymond guttierez lost alot of weight,i decided to change my life perceptions by starting rebuilding myself.I read alot of some of ur articles and reading more about lossing weight.

      To make this short,Thank God i learned somehow to count my calorie intakes, the dos and donts and alot of things. I took my diet seriously. Since hindi ako mayaman, i tried to find healthy alternatives inspired by the ones posted here on your website. Hindi ko masyado namalayan naging adik ako sa vegetables and medyo exercise din sa bahay with the help of Youtube.

      Within 6 months, i lost 32 kilos na. Sarap ng feeling magstep up and im enjoying the perks of it. Thank you thefatkidinside and please pakisabi naman kay raymond at sa people behind that i owe alot from you guys for being the best examples.

      The heaviest weight ive been was just last summer. and the latest weight is my lightest for the last 8 years. Im still trying my best to follow my required BMI since my height is 5’5″. Im happy that ive even influenced my family for eating vegetables since lahi namin ang tabain.

      I also read alot about how to handle holiday peer pressure regarding sa food and how to resist temptation. Sana po gawa kayo ng article especially malapit na ang pasko at new year.

      Salamat po thefatkidinside at sa binubuo nito. Hope you can extend my gratitude and season greetings to
      raymond,heussaf and anne for being my inspiration.

      Hi! This is cool. Thank you for inspiring us for having a healthy and well balance life. But having this kind of lifestyle is too expensive for some people. Is there any tips that you can give us how to be healthy and at the same time without expending much. Thank you.

    1. Eatprayshop December 14, 2013 at 6:11 am

      What application/software did you use for the animated video? Amazing!!!

    1. Cat December 14, 2013 at 4:07 pm

      I agree with Philip. This video is so cool but this kind of lifestyle is too expensive. Do you have any advise how to prepare cheap healthy food? Thanks.

      Hi Erwan,

      Can you put subtitles or captions on this video? I like watching your videos but am Deaf. I think putting captions or subtitles will help people like me who would love to learn from you. Your articles are really great. I know I will learn even more from your videos. Keep up the good work!

      Very INFORMATIVE and INSPIRING… ;) Keep it up!!!




I gained weight because of a sedentary lifestyle and overly indulging in foods I knew were bad for me, eating out too often, taking the easy route (microwavable dishes) and not caring what went in my body, before I knew it reached 240 lbs. I lost weight through pure dedication, tireless hours of hard work and yes, food. I cooked my way to fitness, making sure to only feed myself tasty well prepared dishes with all the right stuff, the perfect fuel, taking me down to 150lbs. Of course I indulge from time to time, as the fat kid still lurks inside of me; here you will find a little bit of everything for the sole purpose of sharing my passion for food and life.
