Do you enjoy a nice bag of crisps? I know I do on occasions, cheese and onion my all time favourite. But can you imagine working your way through 20 packs a day on top of 4 burgers, bacon, eggs, endless amounts of biscuits a loaf of bread and 2 litres of coke? I’m already starting to feel sick; I think that’s enough junk to see me through the year.
This was the lifestyle of a former fitness trainer who was addicted to crisps but then went on to lose half his body weight with the help of Slimming World. Published on DailyMail.co.uk read James Quinn’s story…
Crisp Addict Lose Half Body Weight With Slimming World
Mature student James struggled to walk and could not climb a flight of stairs to make it to his college classes to study for a Higher National Diploma (HND) in multimedia technology and web design
But after being told by doctors his lifestyle would kill him James, with the help of staff at Slimming World, shed 14 stone and a year later weighs in at 13 stone 10 pounds.
James said the weight loss also meant James graduated from college and is now studying for a degree in the same subject.
Father-of-four James said: ‘I loved cheese and onion crisps. I could easily go through 20 packs in a day on top of all the fried food.
‘It got to the point where I couldn’t walk up the flight of stairs to get to class, I think it would have killed me and I definitely wouldn’t have finished the first year, never mind be doing a degree.
‘I feel fantastic now, absolutely great. I’m a totally different person and I haven’t touched a bag of crisps in over a year.
‘I ate one to celebrate hitting my weight loss target and it was horrible, I didn’t like the taste at all.’
Grandfather-of-one James, who lives with his wife Joyce, 46, in Irvine, North Ayrshire, began to pile on the pounds after leaving his job as a fitness instructor at the Scottish Sports Council, to manage a video rental shop in the early 1990s.
The slow-down in activity and hours spent sat behind a counter saw James eat more and exercise less. original article published here.
