Paul Sinha weight loss: The experiment that saw the Chaser drop fat fast – 'inspiration'

Paul Sinha decided to lose weight in 2018 after he was unexpectedly diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. He even took part in the ITV documentary, Diabetes: The Fast Fix, where he survived off of 800 calories a day for one month.

The aim of the show was to see if Paul could “fast himself better”.

It is possible that those living with Type 2 Diabetes can put this condition into remission by losing weight.

Diabetes.org.uk stated: “If you have obesity, your diabetes is more likely to go into remission if you lose a substantial amount of weight – 15kg (or 2st 5lb) – as quickly and safely as possible following diagnosis.”

Paul lost a stone on the show, and celebrated his achievement by taking to Twitter.

At the time, he tweeted: “I’ve lost a stone in weight. If I lose another I have a shout of getting an invite to a gay awards night.”

His weight loss didn’t stop there, however, and he has confirmed that he has continued to shed fat.

The Chase fans took to social media to congratulate Paul on his healthier lifestyle and appearance.

After a slender appearance at the National television Awards in 2019, @cb_038 tweeted: “Paul Sinha has lost so much weight #NTAs #NTAAwards.”His weight loss was also acknowledged after he appeared on Taskmaster in May 2019.

@TJ_SpentForce 20 stated: “Loving #TASKMASTER so glad it’s back! Paul Sinha looks amazing! Lost so much weight – inspiration. Well done Paul.”

But like many people, Paul admitted that maintaining a healthy weight is a struggle for him, particularly over the festive period.

In a tweet to his 205,600 followers on December 27 2021: “Wasn’t even a particularly gluttonous Christmas period and yet I put on 4lbs.”

Referencing his yo-yoing weight and efforts to stay slim, he announced: “And so the fightback begins for the 718th time.”

 Mark “The Beast” Labbett has lost an astonishing 10 stone, telling Loose Women: “I am gradually dropping Xs off my size. I’ve gone from 5XL to 4XL and it looks like the next time I go shopping I’ll be able to squeeze into XL underpants.”

Like his co-star, he too was diagnosed with diabetes in 2017.

Their female counterpart, Anne Hegerty, also lost a noticeable amount of weight on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here.

She stated: “The trouble is really there is no salt.”

The simple diet of rice and beans also didn’t agree with Anne, and she forced herself to cut out rice, which saw the star drop a stone in just three weeks.
