The best part of being a fitness coach for over ten years is watching people physically transform into a stronger and better version of themselves.

I was recently inspired by Casey King's transformation, and I spent a week watching the show on which he was featured and reading about his body weight loss journey.

I realized that a story like this could give clients who think losing weight is impossible some hope that they can achieve their fitness goals.

So, we’ll look at how Casey King lost all his extra body weight and the principles behind his weight loss.

How Much Weight Did Casey King Lose?

Casey King lost a total weight of 579 pounds (262 kgs).

After going through such a tremendous weight loss, King promised that he wouldn't ever go back to his old lifestyle (even though he'd never forget it).


How Did He Lose All His Extra Weight?

Casey King lost all his extra weight through an intense diet and workout regimen.

His weight loss journey began when a TLC show producer approached him with the opportunity to lose weight, and he agreed to this and promised to put in all his effort to lose as much weight as possible.

So, he was highly recommended to start off with bariatric surgery. The doctors removed part of his stomach to reduce the volume, forcing him to eat smaller portions.

After his weight-loss surgery, Casey began intense dieting and exercising for the first time.

His Diet

There’s not much about the specifics of Casey’s diet, but we do know that he focused on consuming high protein foods like fish, poultry, and eggs.

He also consumed plenty of vegetables along with his high-protein meals.

However, it can be difficult to control cravings while you make progress. In such cases, we recommend taking a natural fat burner pill like PhenQ. You can also check our Phenq review and the results of our clients with it.

His Workout

Not much is shared about what Casey did for his workouts. But it's safe to assume that he started out with lifting weights and light cardio such as brisk walking.

As he’d go on to lose more weight, he would move on to more intense cardio like biking or running to burn off extra calories.

What Motivated Casey King to Lose Weight?

Casey’s upbringing, former lifestyle, and deteriorating health motivated him to lose weight.

He had been overweight since his childhood. He weighed over 400 pounds in his early 20s. And by the time he hit 30, all he did was play video games and eat till the end of the normal day.

Fans exclaimed that he'd be immobile by now if he hadn't taken that first step. He lost 145 pounds, and by the second season, he had reduced to 631 pounds.

“I never would've thought that at 34 I'd be living with my father, I'd have no job, have no real money, and just be playing video games all day and eating.”

His Weight Loss Tips

Having crossed many milestones on his weight loss journey, the reality star shared some dieting and exercise principles that allowed him to get to his lowest weight.

Drink Water

Drinking water was the number one thing Casey agrees he did for his weight loss journey.

He drank water before and after meals and when he was hungry. By staying hydrated, Casey was able to have the sensation of staying full, thereby curbing his hunger pangs, which a study from Physiology and Behavior confirms [1].

Eat Protein and Veggies

For his meals, Casey focused on consuming plenty of protein and vegetables.

He ate chicken, fish, and eggs because high-protein meals were more satiating than high-carb or high-fat meals [2].

He also avoided sugar, carbs, and high-sodium foods.

Avoiding junk can be one of the toughest parts of going on a diet. As a certified personal trainer, I know from experience that cutting out sugar and fast food is the most important factor for weight loss success.

Increase Physical Activity

Once Casey began to see changes in his appearance and overall health, he began to increase his physical activities.

He loved hiking and did that as much as he could to burn off extra calories.

According to King, doing physical activities that you love will help you burn fat without you even realizing it. Also, combining a good diet and exercises with natural fat burners for men and fat burners for women is a good idea.
