Alan Halsall has spoken about his weight loss many times in the past, saying that it has affected both his physical and mental health. His secret? Regular exercise and not being afraid to let his hair down once in a while. Not being too strict with himself has enabled Alan to lose weight easily because he enjoys what he does, he stated.
Alan does a variety of fitness work outs to lose weight and stay in top shape, including lifting weights, hiking, playing badminton, and cycling.
In a recent Instagram post, the actor shared a snap of him lifting weights with Colson.
The caption read: “Trying to work out whilst laughing at @colsonjsmith having fun & working hard.
“Health is not just about the weights you’re lifting or what you’re eating. It’s also about what you’re thinking and saying!!”
Alan added: “I like to come [to the gym]. I have a pre-workout meal, I work out, then I have a post-workout meal or a swim and a steam.”
Around the same time, the actor told OK! Magazine that he enjoys doing yoga too, saying: “I’d really got into hot yoga and someone mentioned that Tisha was going to the same studio so I thought we could go together.”
Alan has been in a relationship with actor Tisha Merry for over two years, and the couple live together.
As for diet, Alan is not too strict with himself.
Although he eats healthily, he is not afraid to have the occasional alcoholic drink, often sharing pictures of himself with a pint in hand on social media.
Last year, the actor shared a photo of an ultrasound of a liver, accompanied with the caption: “Well, here goes… some exciting news for you all! It’s come as a bit of a shock but now’s the time to share.
“Totally unexpected and we’ve not told anyone, didn’t want to shout it to the world at first until it was confirmed. We can now share this wonderful news with you all and we’re very proud to announce… this is a scan of my liver in perfect condition, ready for when the pubs re-open.”
