Meet Scott

I’m 48 years old, and a safety manager. I have always been involved in sports to a high level, from representing Great Britain as a Hammer Thrower at 17 years old, to winning Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournaments, Playing semi-professional rugby and most recently powerlifting and winning the WDFPA World Deadlift Championship in 2016, it’s safe to say I’ve thoroughly enjoyed being active throughout my life. 

However, whilst I have always enjoyed sports, most of the sports I chose to partake in were power-based, with little emphasis on cardio-vascular fitness. 

Subsequently, I have always carried weight on me, and after retiring from powerlifting in 2017, I gained more weight, up to 151kg, putting me at 23 stone, and at the risk of obesity. 

I began my weight-loss journey in May 2021, and began losing weight slowly. 

In October 2021, I suffered a heart attack and was fitted with stents. I had been losing weight up to that point, but decided I needed to improve and take up hiking and wild camping to make more of an effort to lose weight and in general become healthier.

By September 2022, I was down to 127kg , and had lost over 4 stone, when I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. 

This motivated me ever further, and by the end of December 2022, I had lost an additional stone. I now weighed 18 stone.

Why did you choose to use the Skinny Food Co products?

I had started using The Skinny Food Co Products in September due to their low/no sugar content, this allowed me to replace some of the foods that I enjoyed without completely getting rid of them from my diet. 

In January I had started a meal replacement programme with my local hospital dietic department, with restricted calories (no more than 800kcal per day). 

My new goal is to lose an additional 10-15kg in an 8 week period with the goal of putting the type 2 diabetes into remission. 

I’m currently at week 6, and have already lost a further 16.1kg, making my current weight 16.6stone.

Choosing Skinny Food Co products was originally a combat to help with my diabetes diagnosis, but now I chose Skinny Food Co to assist in my diet, eating these sauces & syrups means I don’t have to have bland meals, and the very small calories in the products means I can still keep on track with my intake goals.
