Head Chef Jamie Brooks had picked up some pretty bad eating habits during his years cooking.

By 31, Jamie was big – 229kg (504 lbs_ big and his friend had seen enough.

Sick of watching his friend slowly destroy himself, Neil Williamson decided it was time for some tough love.

This tough love came in the form of texts. Everyday for six weeks, Neil would text Jamie inspirational messages like, “Fat F**k” and “You’ll be dead by the time you’re 40”.

After six weeks Jamie had enough and over the course of the next 12 months, dropped from 229kg (504 lbs) to 91kg (200 lbs).

Since his weight loss, Jamie has begun dating again and seems to be enjoying his healthy new life.

“It took the full six weeks to motivate me to do something but I’m so glad I did. Neil has saved my life, I can’t thank him enough.”
