MAN v FAT: Father who struggled to walk drops 8st in 10 months

Incredibly, Man V Fat and the support it provides has helped Anthony to lose a whopping 8 stone in 10 months – 35 percent of his body mass.

While some prefer to work out alone, as weight loss can be an incredibly hard journey, Anthony found having a huge support group unbelievably helpful.

It meant that in addition to making new friends, improving his support system and bettering his mental health, he had others holding him accountable.

Coupled with the football – which he does a few times a week now with friends – the slimmer also goes to the gym a lot, focussing on cardio.

As for changing his eating habits, as a self-proclaimed fussy eater, Anthony was not prepared to eat foods he didn’t like in order to lose weight.
