A father dropped 12 stones after being too obese to get out of bed and help his baby.

Neil Maltman weighed 23rd the heaviest.

In June 2020, he was devastated after unable to get out of bed to help his now two-year-old son Harry, who fell out of bed when he was only eight months old.

After fearing for his son’s life, Neil, 48, decided to make a change and contacted Cambridge Weight Plan 1: 1 Diet advisor Martin Bryan.

After losing 12 pounds and now weighing only 11 kg, Neil from Glasgow was named “Man of the Year” by The 1: 1 Diet.

Neil told the Daily Record, “I’ve worked from home all my life and it got me eating bad habits, hotel food, pub food, eating a big breakfast, and the weight just started to go up.

“I had my first child, Alistair, in 2012 and I wasn’t active enough with him at all – it made me feel very depressed and I got pretty depressed and upset.

“I had my second child Harry in 2019 and when he was eight months old we were lying in bed together watching TV when he got up and quickly stumbled to the edge of the bed and fell headfirst.

“It happened in a split second and when he fell I thought he had broken his neck and couldn’t get up to help him.

“Luckily he was fine and when I got to his place he was laughing at me, but in that moment I knew I had to do something about my weight.

“I joined The 1: 1 Diet by Cambridge Weight Plan and the weight just dropped over time – I’m like a new man.”

Neil, who was in XXXXL clothing at the time, was devastated after he was unable to play with his children Alistair (9) and Harry (2) due to his weight.

He explained, “I wasn’t active enough with my oldest Alistair when he was younger, and I still made the same bad lifestyle choices and mistakes with my youngest Harry.

“My kids made me lose weight because I couldn’t be idle for them and it was a bad example.

“Now I’m much more active with them.

“I used to not play with them, I just watched them, but now I join them, take them for walks in the park, go swimming with them, play soccer and climb and we just spend so much more time together.”

Neil initially reduced his calories to 1,000 a day while following the 1: 1 diet, swapping takeaways for homemade meals and vegetables.

He added, “Because I was so tall with a 56 waist” and my BMI was over 52, I was gaining 1,000 calories a day, which is a lot less than what I was eating, so it was a huge shock.

“But when the weight went down, I didn’t find the diet difficult and the calories gradually increased.

“I had chicken, lots of vegetables, fish, steak, and some of the Cambridge Weight Plan products like soups and bars to make sure I was getting all of the nutrients I needed.

“My wife Ann and my parents were so proud and overjoyed and it changed my life so much.
