A schoolboy from Liverpool has gone through an astonishing body transformation after shedding half his bodyweight through a variety of lifestyle changes, and one clever little trick.
Elliott Hulse, 17, said that it wasn’t the exercise and dietary changes that he made that were key, instead if was something very simple: drinking more water.
He said: “The key for me was drinking water, it was such a big part in the process of losing weight. I would drink up to two litres a day.
“At school I’d go and raid the vending machines and eat the brownies and cookies out of it. Then when I got home I’d root around in the fridge and find something to eat before and after tea.”
“Now I still have the same size meal portions but I just don’t eat in between them. If I get hungry I’ll have a bottle of water.”
He added: “In my head, I didn’t think that I was that big and I didn’t see myself for how I really was. It was like I was looking at myself through one of those mirrors you see at the circus and I thought I looked good, but it finally clicked.
“I had been to an all boys school but when I moved to sixth form it was mixed, and it was that which made me realise I needed to do something.”
