MUHAM­MAD Khairun Khairud­din, 30, is now a more con­fi­dent man ever since he lost 27.2kg af­ter join­ing the Me­dia Prima Bhd (MPB) “Jom Si­hat 100-Day Weight Loss Chal­lenge”.

He starte d the chal­lenge weigh­ing 88.9kg and fin­ished it at 61.7kg, los­ing 30.6 per cent of his body weight.

The MPB fi­nance ex­ec­u­tive cy­cled, ran and hiked, and ate mostly steamed veg­eta­bles. He ate rice and chicken only on Fri­days to re­cover his mus­cles af­ter rig- orous work­outs.

“I had to be flex­i­ble with my rou­tines. If I strained a mus­cle from run­ning too much, I would fo­cus on abs and arms while the in­jured mus­cle re­cov­ered,” he said af­ter the prize-giv­ing cer­e­mony where he took home RM2,000 and an Oppo F1s hand­phone.

Khairun said the chal­lenge also tested him emo­tion­ally and psy­cho­log­i­cally.

“Chang­ing my diet and work­ing out re­ally drained me. Some­times, peo­ple would tease me for want­ing to lose weight. How­ever, my fam­ily en­cour­aged me to keep go­ing. In fact, I have sur­passed my ideal weight, which is 70kg to 74kg. So, the next step is mus­cle­build­ing,” said Khairun, who is get­ting mar­ried to­mor­row.
