A financial planner who stole the hearts of Australia when he chose to eat cold turkey with carbonated beverages has shown his incredible weight loss transformation.
Rohit Roy, 42, of Melbourne went viral on TikTok when he started documenting his journey to end his habit of three cans a day of soft drinks.
He celebrated 12 months without the sugary drinks in June and is now only two weeks from the end of a year on his broader weight loss journey.
Mr. Roy shared a video of his fitness challenge on day 344 last week, comparing a photo of him from the beginning of his trip.

“As you can see, I’ve lost a bit of weight and the differences can be seen on my face,” he said.
“But one thing I think is more important is how I feel, and I honestly feel a lot healthier and happier than before, both physically and mentally.”
Mr. Roy, who has lost about 50 pounds, said that not only did he eat better, he slept better, and admitted that he felt “amazing”.
Another major milestone for the financial planner was that Mr. Roy was selected as a Weight Watchers ambassador when he began his journey last year.
Since then, he has regularly informed his 243,000 followers about his trip and his 15 months without carbonated drinks.

Mr Roy said before he abandoned the cans he drank at least three bottles a day and could swallow a Red Bull in just four seconds.
His unmistakable opening line “Hello everyone, no carbonated drink for me today” earned him a cult following, and many TikTokkers say they’ve been cheering him on since day 1.
Some fans said he even inspired them to give up their own unhealthy habits and change their lifestyle for the better.
“I haven’t had carbonated drinks for two months because of you,” one commented on his latest video.
Halfway through his trip on day 50, Mr Roy shared a photo of himself and his wife that he said encouraged him to reach 100 days
“There’s no one in the world I’m more proud of, you’ve been such an inspiration and did a great job,” said another fan.
‘I’ve been here since day one, such a big improvement!’ wrote one.
In his early days of the cut, Mr. Roy said he’d indulge in a can at the end of each week, but now he hasn’t touched the drinks in over a year.
In an early video, he admitted that his doctors had given him urgent advice to stop the doses.
He also added his twin brother, who was much “thinner” than him, who helped him on the trip.
On day 85 with no carbonated drinks, Mr. Roy shared a photo of what he looked like while consuming large amounts of soft drinks until he looked without them
