This beefcake has revealed the secret behind his stunning six-stone weight loss – cutting back on “Mammy’s dinners”.

Colin Mullane, 25, shed an incredible 5st 11lb in just a year after an unusual Christmas gift gave him food for thought.

He told the Irish Mirror: “My parents bought me a membership for the gym and it was really a kick up the arse.

“It was a wake-up call and showed me I needed to get my arse into gear.

“Out of my group of friends, I was always the chubby friend. Now they call me fatboy slim.”

The Cork man dropped from a hefty 16st 11lb to a lean 11st after making a complete lifestyle overhaul.

Colin said: “I went to the gym straight away and got a fitness and healthy eating plan drawn up and I just stuck to it.

“The change of diet was a big part of it – I was eating all the wrong things.”

He revealed his buff bod is down to a gruelling exercise regime and sacrificing hearty home-cooked meals in favour of a strict diet plan by Galway-based fitness coach Brian Keane.

Colin added: “I had tried losing the weight loads of times before. I was in Australia and dropped a few stone, but when I came back home and started eating Mammy’s dinners again I put it all back on,” he confessed.

“I train five days a week now and I do it because I really enjoy it. It’s really been a lifestyle change.”
