The strange story of a man who lost 150 kilograms by going on foot for shopping every day
It may seem a contradiction but it is precisely what has happened to a 31-year-old American man, who managed to lose a good 150 kg in excess by going shopping on the supermarket.
Pasquale "Pat" Brocco lives in Arizona and weighed almost 275 kg. But when the doctors told him he was seriously risking his life due to high blood pressure and cholesterol, he decided to go all out for a change.
The man knew that exercise was important but he could not go to the gym weighing 275 kg, since he could not even get into the machines. So he made a choice: every time he was hungry, he would go on foot to buy food at the supermarket, a journey of about 3 kilometers round trip.
"It's unbelievable because I had never walked so much in my life and now I did it every day," recalls Brocco. His new habit, accompanied by a suitable diet, allowed him to lose 150 kg in two years, so much so that he had to undergo surgery to remove excess skin.
