Jeremiah Peterson is an antiques dealer living in Montana with his family, which includes three energetic kids. Bored Panda reports that in August, Peterson went on a  camping and hiking trip with those kids—it is Montana after all. But it wasn't a fun, relaxing, pleasure trip.

Peterson said that instead of remembering hanging out with his family and enjoying the natural landscape, he was miserable and out of breath. His kids were running circles around him. He decided he needed a change.

He committed to a daily exercise regimen and a keto diet, which means high in fats and proteins and extremely low in carbs. He tracked his progress on Instagram and the results are astounding.

The Daily Mail interviewed Peterson on his progress, and it seems like even he was shocked by how quickly his appearance transformed.

"I went from having a real dadbod to having a college kid's physique," said Peterson. People were coming up to him all the time to tell him he was getting younger looking by the day. It wasn't just hid body that was changing, it was happening all over.

"Since going from fat to lean it's made everything better, my hair and skin look healthier, you can see my jawline instead of chubby cheeks and I have abs."

Well, yes, also the abs. Here he is at 31 days into his program, already looking super different:

Peterson works out three hours a day, which is definitely a lot. But that includes hiking as well as weightlifting. He says that he once went home and drank beer to destress from work. Now, hiking in the mountains is a much healthier alternative, and helps him clear his mind much more efficiently.

Peterson also shared his meals with followers, so folks would know what he was putting into his body to fuel workouts:

In a caption of his before and after photos, Peterson writes that he'd been making excuses for himself and lost touch with how he was looking and feeling before starting this challenge to get fit.

I had all the excuses. .
I run a business. I have kids. I don't have time to workout. It takes too much focus away from running the business. .
What I know now? I know that my health, my strength, my confidence, my dedication, my hard work...ALL reflect deeply into my very excuses and or amply exactly what I love and value the most. .

Peterson got help planning his meals and workouts from a group called My Transformation Starts Today, a group that also awards cash prizes and runs contests for participants. And he won $50,000!

Personally, I was wondering how he found the time, but if you get a year's salary to work out, that takes some of the time pressure off, doesn't it?

Maybe he could also get into modeling?

Hard work that paid off. Literally.
