James went from 175 pounds to 280 pounds. At least that’s what the article on Yahoo says. I had to convert stones to pounds, but the before/after pictures don’t seem to match that drastic of a change.

To gain that weight James ate kebabs, french fries, bacon, and chocolate milk, presumably not all at the same time. He also gave up exercise.

While James had regular check-ups, he still risked liver disease and heart problems. Plus, he ended up addicted to junk food.

“I feel down. I don’t feel like doing anything. I used to eat lean meat and veg, now I’ve got a taste for biscuits and fizzy drinks. It’s tough to break the cycle,” he says.

He’s currently back to his regular routine, trying to get fit by Christmas.
