Man Loses 250 Lbs Using "99 cent" diet

Ask anyone who’s lost a large amount of weight what jumpstarted their journey to better health, and they’ll probably tell you about their “light bulb moment,” the instant that they decided they’d had enough and were willing to do whatever it took to change. For LA-based musician and clothing designer Papa Joe Aviance, that moment arrived in 2009 when his first house music release, “Last Night a DJ Saved my Life,” hit #6 on the Billboard Magazine Dance Charts. When he saw the music video for the song—which at that time was playing on MTV and VH1—he couldn’t get over how large he’d become. “I was 450 pounds—I was two cheeseburgers away from diabetes or high cholesterol,” recalls Aviance. “I had been big for pretty much all of my life, and I was sick of hating myself. It was now or never.”

To start, he trashed nearly all the contents of his kitchen. “I cleared everything out of my fridge that was going to get in the way of me losing weight—cookies, candy, sodas,” he says. “I was only going to drink water or unsweetened iced tea, and no more fast food. At that point, I’d been drinking a two-liter bottle of Mountain Dew every day, and if I went through any local drive-thru, they knew my name—that’s how often I used to eat that stuff.”

But he had a roadblock to contend with—at the time, he was broke. Aviance, who was then pursuing music and clothing design on the side, had recently been laid off work. “I was unemployed and couldn’t afford a gym membership or fancy diets,” says Aviance. “I realized that walking was the easiest exercise I could do and it cost nothing. So I grabbed my dance music and tennis shoes, and started walking.” (Walk off the weight with these 14 walking workouts to burn fat and boost energy!)

At first, his walks were short—to the end of his block and back to grab the daily Billboard. “The first time around the block—I couldn’t even do it, it was just mounds of sweat,” he says. But he kept at it. One trip around the block became two, and soon he was walking a few miles every day.

Only $50 Per Week for Food
While he was determined to eat better, Aviance had to find a way to do it on a shoestring budget. “A friend told me I should check out the 99-Cent Store. Since I couldn’t afford Whole Foods or Trader Joe's, I decided to see what they had.” Aviance was pleasantly surprised to find that the 99-Cent Store in his neighborhood had plenty of healthy foods to choose from. “Oatmeal, raisins, nuts, bananas, apples, oranges, bell peppers, spinach, salad dressing, tuna fish, eggs… I was shocked. I was blown away,” recalls Aviance. “It was a huge savings. I literally spent no more than $50 a week on food.” (Feeding a family? You can still do it on the (healthy) cheap—here are 20 ways to feed your family for $100 a week.)

Within three to four weeks, Aviance started to see changes. “And within 3 months, I was like ‘Hey, this is working!” he laughs. “I started to take all of my clothes to a seamstress so she could take everything in. I was still too broke to go out and buy new clothes, but I didn’t care. I was on a mission.”

Aviance’s morning walks become so regular, that people in his neighborhood started to take notice. “Since I walk every morning, people have started giving me high fives. I felt like a mini rock star in my community. I’ve even had people stop me and tell them I motivated and inspired them to start walking.”

Low-Cost Healthy Meals
Papa Joe was able to prepare a variety of healthy meals using ingredients he purchased at the 99-Cent Store. Here are a several examples of what he ate on his diet.

Breakfasts
1. 3 egg omelette with spinach, green pepper, tomatoes, and 2 slices of wheat toast
2. Cottage cheese with fresh fruit (oranges, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, or apples)

Snacks (1 or 2 items)
1. Trail Mix
2. Peanut Butter and Jelly on Whole Wheat
3. Raisins
4. Snack Size Peanut M&M’s (For cheat day only) – Keeping it real!

Lunches
1. Yogurt with fresh fruit (Cantaloupe, Mango, Banana, or Honeydew)
2. Salad with tuna or salmon and balsamic dressing

Dinners
1. Chicken Pot Pie with a side of potatoes, squash, or mixed vegetables (broccoli, string beans, cauliflower, carrots)
2. Quiche (eggs, spinach, mixed vegetables) with beans and rice

Health Risks Disappeared
Within 18 months, Aviance lost 250 pounds, and a visit to his doctor confirmed that he was no longer at risk for diabetes, elevated cholesterol, or high blood pressure. “I’ve always been a very happy guy who would kid around with anyone, but when I was heavy, I felt like I had to be that way because I thought people were judging me based on my size. But now it’s a happiness that is really shining from the inside out.” To speed along his transformation, he started to incorporate breaks for pushups and other strength moves during his walks. “I do pushups right in the street—the city is my gym,” he says. (Try these simple strength-training moves you can do anywhere, anytime.)

Today, Aviance is a health and wellness expert touring the country to inspire obese children and adults to start moving. “I want people to be as happy as I am, and part of that is being healthy. The sidewalk is my treadmill. Every morning I walk right outside my door and go. They can do it, too.”

Good on him. I don't know what being 450lb is like but at one point I was probably only a year or 2 from it if I didn't fix my life style. This guy is a prime example of someone who is likely to never put that weight back on because it took him 2 years to lose it doing it the proper way with a life style change, not a surgery and not a fad diet so the chances of him rebounding and gaining it all back are low. He seems to have his sh*t in order so more praise to him.

He probably walked so many miles that he has lost count, that's a good thing, that means he's put in enough work that he'll never forget how hard it was and because of this he won't let himself get too complacent.

I think walking is extremely underrated for losing fat.

i was always active but at the same time mostly skinny-fat and could never get that 'ripped' look... then i started walking briskly to and from school, then a 30min walk in the evening (about a hour and a half 5 days a week) and low and behold i started seeing the veins pop out in my forearms...then i had a full 6 pack...then the veins started popping out of my upper arms and shoulders... keep in mind my diet was terrible at this time and i did absolutely no exercising.

if you want to look awesome stop running and jogging, Walk and Sprint.
It is. Everyone is so fixated on this high intensity sprint for 15-20 minutes and go home stuff. But walking for an hour a day is extremely underrated.

Salute to that man. Seeing yourself on video will definitely do it. It worked for me. Saw a party vid & i walked on screen weighing 335 & i said WTF am I doing. Light bulb moment for me. Down to 216 as of yesterday. No more alcohol, soda & fast food + walking around the neighborhood did wonders.

I weigh 205 now. I need to lose like 20-30 pounds, So apparently I'm gonna start walking. Still gonna be on a crappy diet cause none of that food even remotely sounds good to me. Why is it you have to eat crappy food to lose weight? Ain't nobody tryna eat spinach and carrots all day. :/...

i literally stopped eating and drinking junk and started walking every evening with my lil girls before the sun went down.

mixed in with pushups and situps/crunches everyday , I've lost 35 lbs in 7 weeks. (215-180)

nothing drastic just draw a line across from the bullsh*t and go outside everyday lol.
