- He was so proud of his new body his splashed out expensive photoshoot and posed in his underwear like David Beckham Party-loving Dan Davidson was cruelly nicknamed the 'fat one' during his wild years when he would knock back a bottle of vodka in a weekend.
The 26-year-old joiner would easily guzzle 6,000 calories in a day eating nothing but fast food and his weight shot up to 18st. He knew things had to change when he went on holiday to Majorca he was too embarrassed to take off his top when he went swimming.
To make matters worse, his girlfriend Rachel Brown, 30, was a superfit gym instructor with a body to die for. Desperate Dan wanted to match her in the body beautiful stakes - and knew the only way to do that was by completely transforming his life. He gave up his vodka binges and went from being a 'lardy' to a body builder in just over a year.
The dad of two said: "I still cannot believe how I have changed. "The key for me was giving up the booze. "If I was on the lash, I would be eating all the wrong things and bingeing on fast food. I could easily get through 6,000 calories in a day and would drink a bottle of vodka over a weekend. "I was still going to the gym during this time but it was making no difference to my body shape. I had man boobs and hated the way I looked.
"The low point for me was when a lass pointed at me and said I was, 'the fat one.'" That was the trigger point which prompted Dan to get serious about fitness. He changed his diet - ditching his favourite Coco Pops and takeaways for a high protein diet of grilled chicken and fish. He also started taking FORZA T5's - the supplements which helped Made In Chelsea star Spencer Matthews lose two stone in record time to get in shape for his Men's Health magazine cover.
Over the next year, Dan lost four stone - going from 18st to a far healthier 14st. His 'vodka belly' disappeared quickly as he lost a staggering six inches from his waist - down from 36in to just 30in. But the perhaps the most remarkable change was in his body fat ratio - which went down from 30% to just 6%. Dan, from Grimsby, finally felt confident about his body and decided to splash out on a studio photoshoot when he posed in his underwear like David Beckham. He smiled: "I loved posing for the pictures. A few people have joked that I look like Becks in his kecks. "I have worked so hard to get the body of my dreams and I don't see why I shouldn't celebrate that success." Dan said taking FORZA T5 supplements had really helped him to lose weight.
He explained: "They were the key to losing a lot of that fat including my man boobs. They really help you to burn calories more effectively by speeding up your metabolism." Once he'd ditched the fat, Dan need to bulk up and he said FORZA's LipoWhey protein shake helped him to get buff. It is Europe's first and only whey protein shake to actively lower cholesterol. Dan said: 'It really helped me to increase my strength, performance and recovery."
Now Dan is knowledgeable enough to swap diet and exercise tips with girlfriend expert Rachel - mother of his children Noah and 18-month-old Freya. She said: "I have learned so much from her about diet and fitness and now we are both in great shape. I couldn't have done this without her."
