Toiling hard for his entrance exams, 20-year-old Anmol ended up ignoring his health for his studies. When he couldn't fit into the clothes of his choice, he realized it was time to take charge of his health.To know more about his inspiring weight loss story and gain some fitness motivation, read below:Name: Anmol KhandujaOccupation: Student

Age: 20

Height: 5 feet 10 inches

City: Faridabad

Highest Weight Recorded: 125.6 kilos

Weight lost: 45 kilos

Duration it took me to lose weight: 15 months

The turning point: I was preparing for my JEE entrance and completely focused on the same. I used to sit at the same place for hours and this shot up my weight. Even though I wasn't really ashamed of the same, the real turning point came when I couldn't find size 'M' clothes which could fit me. This shattered my confidence. On this very day, I decided it was time to ditch the excuses and start getting fitter.

My breakfast: I start my day with a glass of warm water with some lemon and honey. Later I take 10 soaked almonds, raisins, walnuts, figs, raw peanuts followed by two slices of brown bread with peanut butter.

My lunch: I have one chapati, a bowl of mix vegetable and daal. I make sure I eat some curd and salad, to keep the gut healthy.

My dinner: A big bowl of dal/ grilled chicken along with some salad.

Pre-workout meal: I feel you need to have something which is easy on your stomach and at the same time provides good energy. I have a cup of black coffee with an apple.

Post-workout meal: One scoop of whey isolate protein and 6 eggs (5 whites and 1 whole)

My workout: The first 3-4 months, I mainly focussed on cardio, which is good for fat loss (cross trainer, cycling, jumping jacks and treadmill). Later I incorporated hardcore weight training in my workout. I used to follow push-pull and leg training plan back then. My main focus was used to be on deadlifts and weighted squats. I have a PR of 140kgs*2 in deadlift and 100 kgs*8 for squats. I work out 6 days a week.

Fitness secret I unveiled: The biggest revelation for me has been learning the nutritional facts of the food I ate. Carbs are not your enemy. I also realized that cardio can only help you till a certain stage but it is only weight training that makes a real difference in your waistline.

How do I stay motivated? Once you start losing water weight and see the changes in your body, that in itself is the biggest motivation for you. Also, I have to credit my trainer. He always supported and pushed me beyond my limits.

How do you ensure that you never lose focus: When you start getting acknowledged by your friends and family there is no turning back. They helped me make sure that I never miss a day on my diet or workout.

Whats the most difficult part of being overweight? When I was fat, I used to run out of breath and people around me started to criticize and shame me.

What shape do you see yourself 10 years down the line? I want to maintain my body weight by maintaining a healthy lifestyle to stay fit. I also hope that I am able to tone up further and sport muscles:)

What are the lifestyle changes you made? The changes I made are as follows:-

-I kept a check on my weight-I controlled my portions
