About Thor Falk

I am a 40-something father and husband who currently lives in France. I spent most of my working live so far “flying-high” in professional services and finance, based out of London, with a fair amount of travel. I had been a chubby teenager who struggled, more or less successfully, to keep his weight under control during school and university. However, the perks of my job – working lunches, hotel breakfasts, too many drinks – and a sedentary lifestyle had over the years taken their toll, and I ended up over 130kg at 186cm. Fat. And out of shape.

I was of course always thinking about doing something about it – I somehow just never did. Priorities! Until that one day when … nothing really, actually. I started dieting, and I started working out, and I lost 20-30kg of body fat, gained some muscle, and I just started feeling better overall. It wasn’t an easy journey, and was not without hiccups but I am content. One thing is very clear though: things would have been much simpler had I known then what I know now!
