What Triggered Adnan Sami to lose Weight


Four years ago, he had been told by doctors that he would not live for more than six months if he continued weighing 440pounds. It was very difficult for him to even walk five steps without taking rest, he required extra belt extensions in plane and while travelling he used specially designed wheel chair. 


Adnan Sami Before His weight lossAdnan Sami After Weight LossAt 206 kilos, it was nearly an impossible task for Adnan Sami to lie down without the aid of pillows. He required an external help to get out of his bed. He found it difficult to do daily routine activities like leg stretching and standing straight on his feet.


The situation went worse in 2005 when he developed lymphedema in his knees and for this he had to undergo a surgery that layed him bedridden for three months. Due to his huge weight whenever he lied down, the extra fat pushed against his lungs thereby causing sleep apnoea. Not only this, he needed two measuring tapes to get his clothes stitched. He wore 6X sized clothes and he always placed the order in bulk.


The turning point came when his doctors told him that with this much weight he could not survive for more than six months. Internally also he felt that his body was unable to bear his weight and may give up any day. Upon being forced by his father, he decided to quit work for six months and thus he moved to Houston where he dedicated his six months in dieting and work outs and strictly said “NO” to his consignments. On June 6, 2006, he ate a huge cheese cake, a potter house steak with lots of butter and mashed potatoes. From then on he went on a diet and regular exercise and work outs.


Adnan Sami’s Exercise Routine to lose weight


Initially, it was tough for him to exercise. So he opted for a well made diet plan and with the help of this only he lost 40 kilos of weight. This was a morale booster for him and then he thought about exercising. To start with, he opted for a treadmill and did moderate amount of walking.


Getting excited to see the results, Adnan Sami said, “I started noticing small changes like I could lie down, sleep longer, my sleep apnoea was beginning to disappear slowly, I could stand longer. It was very gradual. Then, as I moved forward, things began to get better and better.”


Adnan Sami chose Prashant Sawant a trainer in Mumbai to help him work out. According to Prashant, Adnan felt exhausted after walks, but was regular with the workouts. Whenever in town he trained diligently for an hour doing weights and a mixture of weights and cardio exercises.

Hello JASMINE, There are no shortcuts for weight loss. According to Centre for disease control and prevention (CDC) and NIH (National Institute of Health), weight loss of 1-2 pounds a week is considered as health. So, dont go for any crash diets...Concentrated on workouts. Make sure not to involved fats and carbohydrates in excess....In addiction you can practice yoga specially surya namaskar, which is considered as best for weight know more visit the link...
