Thomas Delauer Early Life
His passion for exercising was sparked by the fitness models he saw in magazine covers at the age of twelve. He was studying history in Italy at that time and decided to develop the same muscular physique.
He came back to the United States shortly. In high school, he excelled in sports as a long- distance runner and a rugby player. It seemed his goal of building a well-defined body was easy to achieve.
How Thomas Delauer Gained Weight
In his 20’s, Thomas established a business delivering ancillary services to the healthcare industry. To focus on his new venture, he decided to take some time off the gym. Likely due to pressures from his profitable project, Thomas developed unhealthy habits. Things spiraled quickly and Thomas became overweight.
“I was afraid to step away or divert in any way towards anything else. As a result, I was overweight. More than overweight, I was bona fide fat,” Thomas recalls in an interview.
Thomas Delauer’s Health Scare
Thomas had two other compelling reasons to go back to the gym: his father’s cancer diagnosis and his wife’s newly- discovered Lyme disease affliction.
These prompted Thomas to realize the importance of health. He started working out again and conducted exhaustive research on muscle growth, fat loss, inflammation and exercise.
Thomas Delauer’s Transformation
After several months of hard work and training, Thomas, from looking like a blob, returned to his former ripped self. From a heavy 280 pounds, he tipped the scales at 185 pounds in a short period.
His body transformation was documented in social media. As he inspired thousands to get fit, his popularity grew.
Fitness magazine cover shoots and TV appearances swamped Delauer, and in no time, he became a fitness trainer. However, he was not fulfilled in the fitness industry, saying it seemed “full of people trying to overcome their insecurities without focusing on health and feeling good.” He sought to fill this gap.
Thomas Delauer’s Keto Diet and Intermittent Fasting
Being the entrepreneur that he is, Thomas decided to start a new business integrating his newfound passion for health and wellness.
Delauer’s diet plans hinge on the ketogenic diet— the idea of which is to get more calories from protein and fat instead of carbohydrates. “Keto” diet aims to cut back on easy to digest but highly consumed carbs like sugar, white bread and pastries.
He became a professed master of the “Keto” diet and started creating meal plans where clean and unprocessed foods also take center stage. This diet, mixed with intermittent fasting promotes weight loss, as Delauer states in his ebook.
Thomas Delauer’s Anti- Inflammatory Diet
With his extensive research Thomas came to a certain belief that specific foods cause inflammation within the body, contributing to fat gain and illness, as well as preventing muscle formation.
Delauer identified beets, pineapple, salmon or other omega-rich fish sources, ginger, turmeric, as top anti-inflammatory foods.
Thomas Delauer’s Physical Training Plan
He prefers doing cardio exercises, such as the stair climber and doing long walks, saying it is necessary for weight reduction and maintaining healthy cholesterol levels. It also helps him feel good.

He also focuses on different parts of his body per day, for instance, the legs on Monday, chest (and abs) on Tuesday, back on Wednesday, shoulders on Friday, and arms on Saturday. He recommends taking two days of rest.
