She’d also swoon over men on the TV saying, “You could be like that if you wanted to be”.

Looking down at his beer belly, he was determined to change his health and body for the better. After six months of pumping iron and doing cardio at his school, Jack got ripped! He was so proud of his accomplishments that he wanted to get into bodybuilding.
‘I knew I was shaping up and my friends were amazed,’ said Jack, who now boasts just six per cent body fat. ‘This May, he will enter his first major body-building competition at the Body Power Festival, the UK’s biggest fitness convention and he’s also looking for love’ ‘I’d been watching all these videos of bodybuilders and fitness models on YouTube and decided I wanted to be just like them. My friends laughed at me, but I knew I could do it.’ Instead of scoffing on junk food, Jack cut out the carbohydrates and began training every morning before going to work at Leicester Hospital. ‘All I wanted was to get rid of my tummy at first, but it’s become so much more than that,’ he said.

He now weighs in at 14 stone. This May, he will enter his first major body-building competition at the Body Power Festival, the UK’s biggest fitness convention and he’s also looking for love. ‘When I told people I was going to become a bodybuilder they’d laugh in my face. ‘Girls who usually wouldn’t even look at me are all over me now. I even got a message from my ex trying to get back together.’ Now I hope I can meet a nice, intelligent girl who’s into fitness like me,’ he said. ‘My ex left me feeling like half a man…but now at least I’m a muscly one.’
