GAZ Beadle has revealed his incredible body transformation after bulking up in lockdown.
The dad-of-two embarked on a gruelling training plan that sees him work out three times a week and swap meals for protein shakes.
He wowed fans with his progress photos on Instagram, sharing snaps taken four weeks apart as he beefed up with the help of a support group he has set up.
The last photo the Geordie Shore star shared is with fiancee Emma McVey, who looked fantastic in pink leggings and a sports bra.
He captioned the shot: “@emma_jane1392 training means 2 things legs and bum session”
Gaz sported new, longer hair and one fan pointed out: “Look like wolverine”
Other followers praised them for their efforts in the gym, writing: “Couple who work together stays together, beautiful! ❤️🔥”
Another said: “You 2 are looking good “
Gaz explained his reasons for getting fit last week and said though he was never overweight he thinks he “looked ill” before he started working out and often gorged on McDonalds.
He said: “Right can’t believe actually posting this but who cares….
💥1st picture is me 1st of June I had maybe a healthy shake in the morning but then snacked all day missed meals always grabbing Maccys etc and I never realised how bad it got and how unhealthy I looked especially being out of a gym nearly 3 year until I now look at this picture I literally look ILL”
Gaz went on: “💥2nd picture is me 30 days in I was so happy with this picture I sent it to everyone thinking I was ripped to death 😂😂😂 now I realise I looked like a little boy but it was progress I was well in routine and could see progress and that made me hungry for it again…”
“💥3rd pic is me now 75 days in!!! 3 home workouts a week but nutritionist on point and well balanced I have 5 meals a day mixing food and products to hit protein and calorie targets (having PT’s and nutritionists in our support group defo helped) I honestly believe it is 80% diet 20% training! I am in shape I never thought I could be in again especially not going to a gym and still being busy with the kids work etc”
Gaz said he had been following Herbalife after setting up his own support group under the Instagram handle SmartNutrition.
Emma credited Herbalife with helping her shed her baby weight within 10 days of giving birth to baby son Chester in January 2018.
However, the brand has been called a “weight loss cult” by critics.
It’s been accused of being nothing less than a pyramid scheme – a model in which members are paid for recruiting others rather than selling products – propped up by some of the high profile names they get to endorse their products.
Not only that: others have claimed that Herbalife might even cause long term problems – over the years the company’s products have been linked to lead poisoning, liver damage, and hepatitis.
