We got used to the stereotype that big people get problems because of their weight, especially with their appearance. Luckily, Gabriel Iglesias is the man who managed to break this stereotype and convinced that even being not too slim you can get a lot of benefits.
The famous cute comic said that his look doesn’t give him any problems; actually, he even got much attention and fame because of his kilos. Still, last year he decided to get rid of about 53 kilos. The aim was to lose this weight in two years. What was the reason you wonder if he was satisfied with his appearance?
We guess, you won’t be surprised if we say that the problem was in his health condition. It’s a common case that extra weight loads the heart, so such people suffer from different heart diseases.
Frankly speaking, Gabriel could still lead his habitual lifestyle if there was no warning call. When the comedian actor decided to consult a doctor, he was shocked with the news – his health condition left him just 2 years of living. So, nothing can wake you up better than such news.
If you haven’t known this, Gabriel Iglesias suffers from diabetes. It creates even more problems to his health, but he is determined to deal with them.
The great contribution into Gabriel’s transformation made his friends. They became not only the motivation, but also a great support for the comedian. When Gabriel is away from home his friends keep an eye on him and push him to keep a healthy lifestyle. It really helps!
Besides, Gabriel’s girlfriend is probably the greatest helping hand for him. The man says that she was the first one who started carrying about his health condition. That’s great when you have someone who cares about you.
However, not everything was so ideally. Because of the huge size of his body Gabriel was not able to make cardio training as much as it was required. You’ll never guess what solution he found out…
It was yoga. Can you imagine that?
Really, that was yoga practice that helped Gabriel Iglesias to lose about 45 kilos in a year. That’s amazing result! We have nothing to do but to congratulate this lovely chunky man with this great achievement and wish him further success.
