At his heaviest Umar Malik tipped the scales at 28st and would gorge on around 7,000 calories a day.
He always struggled with his weight but when he turned 18 years old, he began guzzling 70 slices of toast and 56 eggs every week and within three years he had gained 10st.
The 26-year-old, who says he was ashamed and upset with how he looked, became so big that after hitting 28st his scales could no longer measure his weight.

He wore a size 6XL at his biggest and was so heavy he actually broke his shower floor.
Umar, from Ealing, in West London, said: “I remember standing in front of a mirror and feeling ashamed of how I looked. I knew I needed to make a change.
“I had no body confidence. I was so big that the scales couldn’t measure me anymore. It was my lowest moment. It was just not healthy.
In 2014, Umar realised he needed to make a drastic lifestyle change. However, he didn’t fully commit to his weight loss journey until 2015, when he started going to the gym every day and stuck to a strict diet of 3,000 calories a day.
By November 2017, the personal trainer, who now helps others through their weight loss journey, had dropped down to 16st 2lbs and completed an unbelievable body transformation.
Umar’s now eats a calculated diet of six small meals a day and as well as strength training now also does cardio.
“I remember standing in front of a mirror and feeling ashamed”
Ultimate Performance, where Umar now works, has the world’s leading personal trainers and they have also worked with celebrities such as Gemma Atkinson, Scott Mills and Ryan Thomas.
Umar said: “There was no way I wouldn’t see a result as long as I continued eating a strict diet and exercising regularly. It was always going to happen. I felt really good about it.
“I wanted to be really strong and I achieved that goal. I now fuel my body so it is ready to work. I know what works for my body and what is best for me.
“I am much more confident now and I love going out socialising and meeting new people.”
Even though he has transformed his body and now wears a size 3XL, the personal trainer still struggles with his image and believes he is much bigger than he actually is.
Umar said: “Everything is a whole lot better. It has 100% changed my life but I am still very conscious of my weight and I genuinely think I am bigger than I am now.
“In my job, when I am with clients I often do get emotional because I have been there and I know what it is like and how it felt. Losing weight is a very daunting thing.
“I enjoy everything about the job. I have always gravitated to help people in the gym. I love being there for people like I wish I could have been there for myself.”
