If you’ve spent time on the MAN v FAT forum then you’ll probably have already met Paul Dolman-Darrall. He’s a very vocal presence and often brings his considerable experience to help others who are looking to lose weight. Although he’s already shifted a lot of weight – down from 210 lbs (95 kg) in January to 155 lbs (70.1 kg) – the reason he’s in a Future Amazing Loser post is because he still feels he has a lot to go. Not so much with weight loss, but with how he builds himself up afterwards.

We spoke to him about snacking, the calories in chocolate biscuits and what mistakes he’s made along the way.
