A Piece of Cake: Amazing Loser Ben Seeley
As you might have heard, we’re celebrating this week as MAN v FAT Football has hit the massive milestone of helping players around the country lose a total of 30 tons. So who better for this week’s Amazing Loser than the man who holds the record for most weight lost in a single season? Ben lost almost 100lbs – yes you heard, ONE HUNDRED POUNDS – in just one season playing with his MAN v FAT team FC Twentie Stone after weight loss clicked and everything fell into place…
- Name: Ben Seeley (ask him anything on Talk)
- Job: Sous chef at BBQ restaurant Three Wise Monkeys
- Location: Colchester
- Height: 6’1″ (185cm)
- Age: 24
- Highest weight: 294lbs (133kg)
- Lowest weight: 196lbs (89kg)
- Plan: I made my own diet as none of the conventional ones suited me
How did you get to the position where you needed to lose weight?
I always knew that I needed to drop some weight but like most people will agree, life gets in the way. I swear to God, when my partner was pregnant with our first baby she didn’t gain any weight except the baby but I gained a lot!
What made it different from the times before?
The team aspect of MAN v FAT Football – you get points for weight loss which count towards the match score and you don’t want to let your teammates down so you’re dropping the weight for them as well as yourself.
