A young entrepreneur who built his million dollar cake empire from his family’s kitchen shared his amazing body transformation after losing 25 pounds.

Jonathan ‘Jonny’ Massaad, from Sydney, looks very different from when he was a teenager when he weighed 103 kilos and regularly feasted on fast food and take-out meals.

When he was just 17, he started his first own cake company Sugar High Desserts, baking over 500 treats a week before and after school – all while he was studying for his final exam.

The then-teenager who taught himself how to bake said being surrounded by delicious desserts every day led to his weight gain.

The 22-year-old millionaire – who is the founder of the dessert company Cake Mail – determined to put on his weight, now looks unrecognizable after revisiting his lifestyle.

Before taking off dramatically, Jonathan said his diet consisted of “ lots of fast food, drive-thru meals, and a ton of food delivery. ”

‘I needed a quick option. I was a one man show managing orders for my cake business and my health and diet were not a priority, ”he told Daily Mail Australia.

‘Through all my baking I liked to eat and I tasted everything I would make. Being surrounded by food made me eat more and more, which resulted in a lot of weight gain. ‘

The idea of ​​pursuing a career selling delicious cakes came to mind when he didn’t get a part-time job in high school.

‘I was rejected by KFC when I was 17 – the irony. At the time, I couldn’t get a simple fast food job, mainly because I was not confident and shy, unable to work in a rapidly changing workplace, ‘said Jonny.

‘At the same time I baked cakes for my friends and family as a hobby. I ended up putting two and two together and started selling to the public as a form of income because I couldn’t look for work.

When his business took off after attracting tens of thousands of followers on Instagram, Jonny said he couldn’t find time to exercise while juggling school.

“During school I was bullied because of my weight, which left me with a lack of confidence and social skills … I hated my appearance,” he explained.

But his turning point in losing weight came when he started to maintain a ‘balanced’ lifestyle through regular exercise and eating in moderation.

Fast forward five years, Jonny – who now weighs 78 pounds – has gone from a size 36 waist to a size 30.

‘I feel satisfied with the journey I’ve been on, but I know I still have a long way to go. However, I am much more confident in myself that I am no longer an introvert, ‘he said.

“I’ve changed my life from a kid bullied at school to a successful business owner. Now I can finally say that I am happy, confident inside and with the way I look. ‘

Despite now living a healthier lifestyle, Jonny – who works out at a gym five times a week – said he still eats what he wants within reasonable limits.

‘I have a few exceptions … I still love sweets and fast food, but in moderation. I think I shouldn’t compromise the foods that make me happiest, ”he said.

For anyone struggling to lose weight, Jonny suggested, ‘Just do it. There is never a right time to start … the time to start is now.

Stop saying “I’ll start Monday”, start today. But don’t cut out the foods that make you happiest, it’ll take the pleasure out of the lost weight. Eat it in moderation. ‘
