An Australian man Terry Munro is over the moon after he underwent a weight loss of about 100kg and successfully managed to keep it off for almost three years. In June 2018, he weighed 185.5kg which was his heaviest point. After he took up the CSIRO diet plan, he lost 100 kg, and in 2023, he is still lighter by that much. He's undoubtedly had one of the most incredible physical transformations. Let's talk more about Terry Munro's weight loss!
Terry Munro's Weight Loss: He Lost 100kg After Taking up the CSIRO Diet Plan!
Terry Munro had already given up on weight loss after tipping the scales at 185.5 kg. If it weren't for CSIRO's total well-being diet, he would have spent his life at that weight. But fortunately for him, he discovered CSIRO and now he's 100 kg lighter and very happy and satisfied with the quality of his life.
Terry Munro's life was getting very difficult because of his weight. His massive size had started to be a burden for him. As he said to Today hosts Karl Stefanovic and Ally Langdon, his life was very, very challenging, and being 185.5 kilos put a lot of pressure on his body, his joints, and also his mental health. It affected his daily life in more ways than one and the only way to get a better life was weight loss.

Terry Munro was at that point in his life where he would have to park close to shopping centers so he didn't have to go far. He would have to make sure that there was space to hop in and out of the door. He had to have an extension belt on the plane. He hated to think that he couldn't sit on that chair because he would break it. He said that it messed him up. There was no other solution to this problem than weight loss.
Terry Munro hated that he could not go more than 20m without becoming out of breath and had to find a carpark as close to the door as possible. He hated having to make sure that there was enough room for him to get out of his car. He was also tired of feeling like he couldn't go to certain restaurants for dinner because he might break chairs. So, he would choose not to go out because he was very self-conscious about his size and felt everyone was looking at him all the time. He was not enjoying his life as he should. And on top of that, he was not having success with weight loss.
It's hard to lose weight. Even more so for Terry Munro because he predominantly ate 'sugar and junk food.' An average day in his life would feature an egg and bacon toastie with a jumbo mocha and two sugars for breakfast, followed by a big bowl of pasta for lunch. He would have KFC every weekend. Weight loss after that kind of eating habit takes a lot of effort and a very long time.
But Terry Munro was motivated despite not being successful at his initial weight loss attempts. He may have given up at some point, he even said that he wanted to kill himself at that point. But he wanted to be around to "annoy his family" for many years to come and that was his motivation. After he discovered the CSIRO well-being diet, his life changed.

Under the CSIRO wellbeing diet, Terry Munro took up the high protein, low GI diet. And that diet turned out to be a game changer for him and it's the major reason why he lost the weight and how he managed to keep it off for so long. He lost 100 kgs in 2020 and it's almost been three years and he has maintained the weight loss. He said that the education he had received from the CSIRO has been invaluable and it had given him the tools to maintain his weight and live a healthy lifestyle.
The Australian dad is now, as he says, in control of his food and not under the control of food. He now weighs his food to help with portion control and tracks what he eats. This is why he has managed to retain his weight loss for almost three years all while indulging in nightly ice cream. He's in a much better place now and is very happy now. He's more engaged with his kids.
The CSIRO total wellbeing diet hasn't changed my life but it's saved my life. Food used to control me, now I control my food.
Weight loss might have seemed impossible for Terry Munro in the beginning because, in the first six months, he was unable to exercise but as he started to lose weight slowly, he pushed himself and took up star jumps in the pool and later began to walk. Now, he walks 6 km a day and has taken up weight training.
Since then, he has also bought himself a sports car which he can now fit into, by the way. He's gone tandem skydiving with his son and climbed the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Now, he is planning a trip to the US to 'go on all the roller-coasters because he can actually fit in them.'
