HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Robert Browne, a health teacher and coach at Harrison Central High School, is getting national attention for his body transformation.

The 30-year-old says an editor from “Men's Health Magazine” messaged him on Instagram, then featured him in a weight loss article.

Browne said over a period of several years, he went from out of shape and over 350 pounds to a muscular 240 pounds with weight lifting.

He said he also watches what he eats to the gram and has protein or a fibrous vegetable with a measured amount of carbohydrates in small meals throughout the day.

"Everybody says my shirt tight. They joke with me, shirt too tight. I know it comes from a good place, but then they say 'I'mma be as big as you when I grow up,' and I say 'I hope you do,’” said Browne.

Browne says he works out twice a day during power lifting season with his students at school and belongs to Wolf Pack Gym.
