Following its release in Nov 2020, the Playstation 5 (PS5) has been hard to get due to supply chain disruption and semiconductor shortages caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
A Thai man however, didn’t let that stop him from getting his hands on the game console and lost a staggering 10kg after he wife promised to get him one if he shed those pounds.
Lost 10kg to get PS5
In a Facebook post dated Oct 18, Prab Laoharojanaphan wrote that his wife gave him a challenge to lose 10kg.
If he succeeded in doing so, he would be given a PS5 as a reward.
Four months into the challenge, Laoharojanphan proved to be successful in his endeavor and even posted an edited photo of him holding a PS5 to celebrate.

Shared the secret of his success
In the post, Laoharojanphan also shared his strategy for those who were looking to follow his weight loss plan.
First off, he suggested intermittent fasting, where one refrains from consuming calories for an extended period of time.
Start from 16-8, then gradually reduce meal timing to 18-6 and 20-4 respectively. Currently I alternate between 20-4 on one day and one meal per day on the next day.
Next up, Laoharojanphan recommended alternating between cardio and strength training as exercises.
As for his diet, he wrote that he followed a 80-20 ratio between keto and treats, where the latter consisted of meals with loved ones during special occasions.
He also recommended the book The Obesity Code – Unlocking the Secrets of Weight Loss by Dr. Jason Fung, calling it “very important”.
“We need a certain knowledge to understand complex causes of obesity and use that knowledge to create a strategy that fits our own body and lifestyle,” he wrote.
