Texas-native Alton Ward is no stranger to Chick-fil-A’s fast-food wiles.

Before Ward took off to start school at Texas A&M at age 17, he weighed in at 355 pounds. According to an interview with Business Insider, now 25-year-old Ward, who currently lives in Colorado, says he had always struggled to lose weight and find a diet that worked for him.

At 18, Ward started exercising but was still at a loss about what to eat. That’s when he decided to go to one of his long-time favorites and try out Chick-fil-A’s healthier options. From there, he ate Chick-fil-A almost daily. Combined with portion control and workout regimens, he shed 140 pounds in just under a year.

“I wouldn’t say all of it is Chick-fil-A, because I have to make my own decisions,” he said, but noted that Chick-fil-A had “tasty, healthy options that worked for me and…my palate.”

Ward will move back to Texas to live in Houston this month. Read his full weight-loss journey here.
