Dave used to eat sausages, chips and pies every day. That’s how he eventually reached 217 kilograms, at which point he could only fit in size 8XL clothes. In addition, the weight also brought many health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol, gout and apnea.
Arriving in a life-threatening situation, he decided to make a radical change. He began to adopt a healthy diet, primarily avoiding fast food.
He chose instead to eat lean meat, fish, drink natural juices from fruits and vegetables, and take longer and longer walks. That’s how he ended up walking 9,700 kilometers in two years.
“It was hard for me to walk to work, I rarely went outside until I was almost completely immobilized. It got harder and harder as I gained weight and my world practically shrunk. I fit in my car seat and on buses and trains and planes.
I’m no longer afraid that I might break the bank. I can buy clothes anywhere and put on my own socks. I can walk for miles, run and go down the stairs,” the man confessed, according to Fox News.
