This is the incredible transformation of Jake Golding, 23, from Leicester.
Golding lost SEVEN STONE, which is amazing in itself, but wait till you hear why.
Golding has struggled with his weight since he was a little boy.
"When we finally met it was just amazing – we were both each other’s first relationship and it was incredible to share our first kiss together."
"We went to Paris whilst she was here and went to Disneyland and the Eiffel Tower – it was the best week of my life.”
Jake trained in the gym for between one and two hours a day, five days a week. "It was pretty intense but I wanted to whatever I could to look my best for Carlisa," he said. "I had joined once before but never kept it going. This time I was determined to. With the help of my brother, friends and research on the internet I came up with this brilliant diet.
"It was high in protein and low in carbs and at the same time I was training in the gym for between one and two hours a day. I’ve lost weight but now started bulking as well and have 10kg of muscle.”
Before he embarked on this regime he would sometimes start the day with four burgers, sausages, beans, and toast. Now he eats porridge for breakfast.
A GoFundMe for his surgery has now been set up!
