Transformation: Christopher Chiott Cuts an Inspiring 90 Pounds!
I played for football for 15 years of my life and I was always a big kid. My sophomore season I tore my knee apart and got up to 316 pounds and felt awful both mentally and physically. I decided it was time for a change.
After football I began researching how to eat and train as opposed to dieting and rebounding.
My major turning point was stepping on the scale and seeing a number above 300lbs.
What Were Your Major Struggles or Challenges?
Staying focused on my mission while being a full time student and working in order to pay for things, i.e. food and life.
Detail Your Workout and Cardio Plan During Your Transformation
I would do about 40 minutes of cardio a day and never less than 20. I would train a typical 6 day split resting on Sunday but still doing active recovery.
Once I dropped the first 40lbs my mobility improved so did my training.
Detail Your Diet/Eating Plan During Your Transformation
Bro food. Complex carbs, lean proteins, healthy fats. After a while I would experiment with different foods in order to break plateaus and different diets such at Keto and Paleo.

What Was Your Major Accomplishment, or Major Milestones?
Major milestone has been the biggest thing I've accomplished in my weight loss journey and that's keeping the weight off for 4 years now.
Detail Your 3 Biggest Mistakes
- Not listening to my body and resting.
- Thinking too much.
- Partying in college.
- Never give up because you never know who you're motivating.
- You're going to have bad days: what separates you is how you handle it.
- Also be open to trying new things and listen.
You can do it. We all can do it. At the end of the day you have to be a little selfish and a little self-servicing but your true friends and the people who care will be there after just as they were before.
Surround yourself with like-minded people and always be humble when you see someone else working hard because they might have been where you were once, so lend a hand.
