LET’S start 2019 off with a bang! As this is the first is­sue of the year, we’ve added ex­tra real-life sto­ries! I know Jan­uary is the time when a good many of us say, “This is the year that we’ll lose weight!” and the first few weeks of the new year sees the gym full and all of us on spe­cial eat­ing plans. But as the months go by and we fall back into our daily rou­tine of work and dead­lines, gym be­comes a dis­tant mem­ory – and take­away sud­denly seems much eas­ier than cook­ing! Well, let’s not fall into that trap this year; let’s make 2019 a year in which we ditch the di­ets but just make healthy eat­ing a habit. So ‘no!’ to junk food! It’s hard I know, but we can do it! All we need is mo­ti­va­tion and in­spi­ra­tion. With this in mind we’ve de­cided to share some in­spi­ra­tional body trans­for­ma­tion sto­ries. On page 3 we meet the hottest ve­gan, hunk Mas­simo, who’s no meat but ALL mus­cle. Then on page 14 there’s Ralph, who dropped 107kg (by ditch­ing his ba­con sand­wiches) and Em­manuel,

25, who lost 122kg af­ter be­ing ‘dis­gusted’ with the sight of him­self on stage. A larger-than-life trans woman Gon­zalo lost an amaz­ing 76kg on page 15, while Lexi, 27, lost an un­be­liev­able 137kg.

If th­ese peo­ple can turn their lives around, we can too! But please be sure to con­sult your doc­tor be­fore you de­cide to take on any fit­ness plan.

Our celebrity news sec­tions will be back to nor­mal from the next is­sue, but you can al­ways keep an eye on what’s hap­pen­ing in the land of glitz and glam by head­ing to our web­site, which runs 24/7:
