JAW-DROPPING pictures of this ripped man who can pull the loose skin from his six-pack after losing more than half his bodyweight in just 18-months will leave you gob-smacked.
Meet the fitness fanatic who went from an obese 25-stone man binging on fast-food and booze, to earning a rock-hard six-pack at a trim eleven-and-a-half stone that even the most dedicated gym-rat would be envious of.
Sadly, his impressive abs have been left with a reminder of his larger days in the form of loose skin which hangs by his hips and can be stretched out.
Director of his own nutrition company, Noah Kingery (29) from Simi Valley, California, gained 210lbs in one year after losing a loved one close to him and spiralling into a circle of depression.
“I was in such a deep dark place that I could not see life worth living,” said Noah.
“The loss of love lead to depression and I walked away from my passions, just giving up on life.”
Noah became so low that he attempted suicide in his flat in downtown Los Angeles.
“I went to the cabinet, I grabbed a handful of painkillers. I took the last handle of vodka that I had and I downed it.
“I went one foot off the balcony and as I was doing this my phone rang.”
He describes the rest of the night as a blur but when he woke the next day he realised that his life had been spared and he had so much to live for.
Since that pivotal night, Noah has given up alcohol, cut out fatty foods and his transformation pictures are incredible.
“I dedicated myself to the gym, nutrition and completely changed my lifestyle,” Noah explained.
It was far from easy but Noah who was born in India to missionary parents and spent a year in Brazil in his teenage years pursuing a professional career in football was dedicated and trained hard.
“Facing all adversity with addiction to poor lifestyle habits was the hardest thing to break,” said Noah.
“My self-worth is no longer attached to my weight. Seeing through sober eyes and facing hard things that come up in life head-on is key.
“Now I believe that nothing is impossible.”
His roller-coaster transformation is documented in his unbelievable series of side-by-side shots of him at his heaviest and snaps of him now with rippling muscles.
In one shot you can see his passport photos alongside each other which will leave you wondering whether it’s the same person.
“People don’t believe it’s real. But I get a lot of respect and inspiration from people who look up to me,” he said.
“It gives me a sense of purpose to inspire those who currently walk in the shoes that I once did.”
His advice for others trying to lose weight is to find out what works for you.
“Get consistent. This journey will not be easy but remember no-one will do it for you,” Noah added.
