Poker Player Brothers Accept $150K Bet That Completely Changed Their Lives.

They knew it wouldn't be easy, especially given that they had to undergo a completely different diet.

Jaime, who absolutely loved fast food meals, had to opt for healthier alternatives like nutritious smoothies. He also cut down his carb intake, ate more protein and veggies, and went cold turkey on sweet stuff. While Matt added complex carbs like pasta, and rice to bulk up.

Dealing with the dietary change was tough for Matt, especially towards the final three months.

He was eating 3,000 to 3,500 calories a day in the final months, even though he had gained more physical mass, and it was wearing him out. But after a year of dieting and exercising, the brothers pulled it off. Matt gained over 50 pounds of muscles, and Jaime lost 115 pounds.

It had been a year, and not an easy one, but the brothers had achieved what they set out to do.

Matt and Jaime each weighted 188.3 pounds. Of course, now, fellow poker player Bill Perkins had to honor the bet, because he lost. After the brothers were officially weighed in, they got their hard-earned money, and decided to hug it out.

So, their friend, Bill Perkins had laid odds that the Staples brothers couldn't do it a year ago.

Matt and Jaime still thanked Perkins for the prize money, which became a huge incentive in helping them turn their lifestyle around. Now they're taking their health a little more seriously and have learned to eat better and exercise more.

The Staples brothers live-streamed the weigh-in on Jaime's twitch.tv channel, and got lots of views.

10,500 very impressed viewers watched as Matt and Jaime proved to Perkins that they had achieved their goal. They even chatted with fans and shared videos of their ordeal that made them $150,000 richer. Great job, boys!
