Having ballooned to 17 ½ stone after giving up the cigarettes, Derek’s natural inclination led him to the gym in an effort to shift that extra weight.
So desperate was Derek to lose the weight that he thought it necessary to engage in a five day programme, but despite the considerable toil and sweat exerted, he could not drop the pounds.
“The Programme has been an incredible help and the lessons it’s taught me are like second nature now. I even spent five weeks out of work and recovering from a bad back and I still managed to lose weight. I’ve lost four stone, which has made work – I’m a flooring contractor – so much easier. I feel like the programme has given me the secret to getting the weight off, and more importantly keeping it off.”
