How this man lost 10 stone in 10 months

  • A man who weighed 24 stone at his heaviest point has lost 10 stone in 10 months, through healthy eating and exercise.

Dan Seal from Harborne, Birmingham, used to love eating fast food in huge portions.

But he scrapped all that, and started working out regularly in October last year - sometimes twice a day.

He stuck to his training plan and after 10 months lost 10 stone, going from a 54 inch waist band to 34 inches.

Here are some top tips from Dan, and his trainer, Holly.

Funnily enough I'd been a member of gyms for about 20 years. The weight would never shift because all I would do is eat like a pig

It included having four meals a day which surprised me at first. I'd be in the gym twice a day as well. My belly started to feel satisfied and I was like, 'Wow'. It has been gruelling though, I can't lie. There were times when I'd have to stop on the way home to throw up. I definitely gave blood, sweat and tears.

He's since had to pay £4,000 to have excess skin removed, as he lost so much weight.

I see it as I'm starting my life again now, a fresh start. I've got a new lease of energy and I want to keep it up. I don't want to stop here though, I want my physique to get even better.
