Joseph Benjamin The 27-year-old transitioned his afternoon radio work into nightly appearances in clubs. He drank every cocktail they handed him, became “good friends with Uber Eats drivers,” gained weight, and “didn’t like my body.” In 2021, after a year, he noticed that his breathing sounded like snoring. He took control of his schedules and habits, He has lost more than 20 kilos and now breathes very well thanks to a great transformation. And that’s how he got it.
Make the gym your energy drink
Benjamin began changing his schedule. He forced himself to become a morning person when he was transferred to the radio shift. He doesn’t like coffee, so he relies on a 6 a.m. F45 class – group functional training – to start the day full of energy. (He even creates the mixes for the courses.)”“It also gave me much-needed awareness of my body.”, says. Now he’s more careful about what he does to her.
CLOSE THE KITCHEN SOON
Stop eating around 6 a.m., three hours before bedtime. He found that eating late was linked to sleeping late in the morning and laziness throughout the day. He hasn’t changed his meals much (sometimes you can still catch him eating a hamburger), but as soon as He started eating earlier, stopped snacking late at night, and went to bed at the same time. He lost weight almost every night (because I have to be an adult tomorrow).

ASK BEFORE YOU DRINK
When Benjamin performs at night, he has learned to turn down free alcohol. To lose weight, he decided to drink only once a week. He credits his gym with helping him find the discipline he needs, and the Do Not Disturb feature on his phone for helping him avoid late-night invites. If you want to get drunk, ask yourself: “Is this drink worth harming my body?”. Usually the answer is no.
