A Milton Keynes man has heaped praise on his personal trainer’s refreshing approach after losing almost two stone in six weeks – despite regularly eating chocolate!
Dave Young, from Shenley Brook End, won the first ever PROJECT:F1T Biggest Loser competition after shedding 25lb from the training programme that involved 18 local people battling it out for the £125 cash prize.
And he has paid a glowing tribute to personal trainer Lee Behjet, owner of PROJECT:F1T, for helping him get back into shape.
Dave said: “Lee is a brilliant trainer as I’ve lost loads of weight without having to cut out my favourite foods.
“The training was hard work but his relaxed approach to food is really refreshing.
“I made sure I was hitting my protein first, then I would often eat pizza, chocolate and Magnum ice creams to make up the rest of the calories!
“I’d recommend Lee’s next Biggest Loser challenge to anyone.”
Dave’s group lost a whopping 146lb between them during the six-week programme.
And he was so impressed with his results that he is now competing for the prize of Biggest Loser 2.0 after signing up for another six weeks!
Lee explained his approach: “We adopt a very flexible way of dieting where no food is seen as good or bad. We educate our trainees on being strict but not restrictive.
“We start with bodyweight exercises and effort-based training before increasing the intensity with the use of weight training.
“We are delighted with the results we’ve had so far and Dave has been brilliant. He’s taken on board everything we’ve told him to do – his attitude has been exemplary.”
Biggest Loser 3.0 will be going ahead in early 2018 so if you want to be a part of it email firstname.lastname@example.org.
