When we think about getting older, it feels as though life is over. However, if it turns out that we were wrong, you can still greatly improve your life.
Steve Ramsden, a 60-year-old from Wakefield, England, is one example of someone who changed their lifestyle and stopped eating fast food and takeaways. Now that he has an amazing body fit for a bodybuilder, he is getting ready to compete in events.
Bored Panda contacted him to find out his secrets.

A 60-year-old Englishman named Steve Ramsden lives in Wakefield.
It’s never too late to lose weight; people over 50 can change how they live. On the other hand, Steve needed not only to lose weight but also to build muscle.
Steve chose to alter his lifestyle and stop eating fast food and takeout.
We were unaware of Steve’s reason for altering his way of life. He claimed,
“I couldn’t tie my shoes without getting out of breath, and moving a patient at work hurt my back.”
What caused him the most stress daily was also expressed.
“I had to wear too big clothes to show my midriff.”
He lost more than 60 pounds in just ten months.
We questioned how long it took him to reach his goal. “Over ten months, I lost more than 60 pounds.” He claimed.
He had lost a lot of weight, and we were nervous about his health. “The doctors gave me normal readings. I’m no longer borderline diabetic or have high cholesterol.” Normal was how my blood pressure was. “My whole family is behind me,” Steve said
He feels better as well as looks different.
He adds that he is healthier and feels better about himself.
“My body feels a lot better. I got clothes that fit my body well. Now, I feel good about myself when I go out. “I have more energy and feel less stressed when I’m out in public.”
Steve said, “I’m happy with my body right now.”
We asked Steve, who had previously lost weight, for advice on changing if you don’t like your appearance but lack the motivation to do so.
“Start by going for a walk, throwing away your takeout menus, and cutting back as much as you can on bread and alcohol.” From there, you can go. “After the first month, you will see a big difference.”
These days, Steve wishes to compete in bodybuilding events with his son Danbo.
Steve isn’t sure if he should continue because his body is in great shape now.
“Right now, I’m delighted with my body, but my son Danbo and I want to compete next year in bodybuilding events.”
Giving up something you enjoy is even more complicated than breaking bad habits. What about Steve’s past life does he now miss? We questioned. “I only miss fresh cream cakes,” he said.
Steve proves that 60 is not an old age to make changes.
Last but not least, let me remind everyone: “People say they don’t have time, but they watch TV for more than 2 hours a night on average.” Take 30 minutes of that time and do some cardio. “These small changes will change everything.”
