A financial planner who stole Australia’s hearts when he decided to go cold turkey with fizzy drinks has showcased his incredible weight loss transformation.
Rohit Roy, 42, from Melbourne, went viral on TikTok as he began documenting his journey to quit his habit of three cans of soda a day.

“As you can see I’ve lost some weight and the differences can be seen on my face,” he said.
“But one thing I think is more important is how I feel and I honestly feel a lot healthier and happier compared to I used to be, both physically and mentally.”
Mr Roy, who has lost about 15kg, said he not only eats better, but he sleeps better, and admitted he felt “great”.
In another major milestone for the financial planner, Mr. Roy was chosen as a Weight Watchers ambassador when he embarked on his journey last year.
He gives his 243,000 followers regular updates on his journey and his 15 months without fizzy drinks since then.

Mr Roy said before stopping the cans that he drank at least three bottles a day and could drink a Red Bull in just four seconds.
His signature opening line “hello everyone no fizzy drink for me today” gained him a cult following, and many TikTokkers say they’ve been cheering him on since day 1.
Some fans have said that he has even inspired them to quit their own unhealthy habits and change their lifestyle for the better.
“Because of you I don’t drink carbonated drinks for two months,” one commented on his latest video.
Midway through his journey on Day 50, Mr. Roy shared a photo of him and his wife, who, in his own words, encouraged him to make the 100 days
“There is no one in the world that I am more proud of, you have been such an inspiration and you have done an amazing job,” said another fan.
“Been here from day one, such a big improvement!” wrote one.
In his early days of austerity, Mr. Roy said he would allow himself one can at the end of each week, but now he hasn’t touched the drinks for over a year.
In an early video, he admitted that his doctors had given him strong advice to stop using the cans.
He also added his twin brother, who was a lot “thinner” than him and helped him through the journey.
On day 85 without fizzy drinks, Mr. Roy shared a photo of what he looked like drinking large amounts of soda to what he looked like without them
