Doing super sets in the gym and revamping the fridge helped Rammutla reach the lighter version of himself. “I changed the way I ate and began eating smaller meals in-between meals. I have been starting to change 
my lifestyle by eating smaller portions. I have a more structured plan because I know 
exactly what to eat.”
He says he feels very good now: “People notice the difference, and I feel confident. You have more energy and you can do a 
lot of things – you wake up early and you can multitask.”

Rammutla’s Top Tips

1. Get Fit Fast
“I used high intensity training where you have spurts of high 
exercise and cooling down. It’s more effective than running on 
the treadmill at a constant pace because you run out of breath 
and you can feel it.”

2. Alternate Your Training
When the gym gets packed, adapt your workout, Rammutla suggests. “I tended to mix my exercises up because the gym tends to get full and you can’t always train as recommended. You need to be able 
to tweak it here and there. That was nice about the programme – 
it kept changing to give your body a new challenge.”

3. Power Through Obstacles
At first, Rammutla’s body took a while to adjust to the heavy lifting and unfamiliar eating pattern. “The first two weeks were a challenge, but after three weeks your body starts getting used to it.”
