This is not a Story i can Believe Easily but according to Tutu Branch ;
How incredible is the true story of this man who was so close to committing suicide due to overweight (you will agree with me that white people are easily depressed to commit suicide compared to our African people who will daily live with the word, 'he go better')
The transformation is dramatic is now nicknamed Mr Muscles and now a renowned personal traier but has also found a beautiful blonde girlfriend, Morgan, who he has been dating for about a year and a half.
In describing the his overweight experience, he said: 'By the age of 21, I weighed 22 stone. I used to go out but, one night, a girl came up to me and asked me to leave the bar I was in. I asked why and she told me I was making her and her friends feel sick. 'I'd also end up eating sandwiches or about four slices of white bread late at night as the drinking made me hungry.'
Though Mike previously had several jobs including car valeting and as a supermarket security guard his increasing weight soon meant he was unable to work and he became increasingly isolated
Hiding from the world in his bedroom, Mike would order alcohol online and have it delivered to his home, wasting his days watching television and browsing the internet.
Speaking to Mail Online Mike says that his diet was never excessive.
'I live at home and I'd generally have cereal for breakfast, a sandwich for lunch and then whatever my mum cooked for dinner.
'The weight gain came from the alcohol. I would drink an entire bottle of whisky and about six cans of lager every night.
'If I ran out of whisky I could drink up to 18 cans of lager, so I was consuming about 3,000 calories in alcohol every day.
Mike says that losing weight has given him a life and is urging others not to get into the same situation he found himself in
Mike decided to join a gym to tone up properly - and enjoyed working out so much he strove to make it his career.
Demonstrating his new found body confidence Mike has shared his progress on his Facebook page, posting a series of pictures of himself throughout his dramatic weight loss alongside the caption ‘Trained my f****** ass off!’.
In response to the highly complimentary comments Mike says that he feels he still has some way to go in honing his physique.
‘Well done doesn't seem to cut it. One hell of an accomplishment,’ one message read. Mike responded: ‘Thanks everyone, really appreciate the kind words.
‘Have a long way to go yet, gotta (sic) pack on more muscle to fill that skin. Just gonna (sic) take time and effort. Need my head in the right place to finish the fight.’
Mike also has posted images of his new healthy lifestyle with pictures of high-protein snacks and bread as well as himself hard at work in the gym.
'I try and consume about 250g of protein a day now and eat only what you would describe as clean food,' Mike told MailOnline.
'I do treat myself to the occasional take away and a couple of beers at the weekends but I never get drunk anymore.' he says.
He said: 'One night, while listening to Guns N’ Roses, I thought to myself, "What kind of a life is this?"
'I had terrible pains but I was too scared to go to the gym and do anything about my weight, as people pointed and laughed at me in the street.
'I had wasted everything and lost everything and the only person who could do something about it was me,' he said.
Mike ordered a cross-trainer on the internet, set it up in his room and set to work and he gradually built up his stamina to three one-hour sessions a day and stopped drinking altogether.
Mike said: 'Every session on the cross-trainer ended up with me taking my XXXXL dripping wet T-shirt off and just looking down at my belly crying. But, each time, I picked myself up and carried on.'
It took 18 months for Mike, now 31, to lose 18 stone. But he was still left with a major problem – his loose skin.
'I felt just as disgusting as I did when I weighed 33 stone. I needed to do something, and I ended up paying for skin on my stomach and upper arms to be removed.'
'Losing weight has not only given me a new lease of life, it has actually given me a life,' he said.
