TV hunk Nathan: I lost 32lbs and swapped my pot belly for a ripped six pack in less than 3 months.
The 26-year-old hunk slimmed down from 16st 11lbs to his ideal weight of 14st 7lbs so he would look good on TV. He also lost four inches from his waist, but actually put on two inches across his chest, to give him the ‘Superman’ torso of his dream man Henry Cavill, who plays the movie superhero.
Nathan, 6ft 4in tall, is proudest of completely flattening out his pot belly and developing the same ripped abs of his male co-stars. He teamed up with the fitness team from health and wellbeing firm Forza Supplements and swapped his favourite pie and chips lunch for its Shake It Slim meal replacement drinks. Nathan, who lives with his boyfriend Craig, 24, and his dog Buddy, got added energy for sessions in the gym by taking its Raspberry K2 diet capsules.
He put on a staggering 21lbs in just six weeks filming the current series of Geordie Shore which sees the cast travel to Tenerife for some wild partying.
Nathan said: “I have got my dream body after 12 weeks of really hard work. I’ve seen lots of stars ‘sculpting’ their most desired figures and I thought I would try and do the same. “I did it by cutting out the junk food, ditching the booze and working on some great exercise routines which have got my abs harder than they’ve ever been.”
“I felt rubbish after we finished filming the new series. I had put on a stone and a half and when all the lads in the house have amazing abs it makes you feel a whole lot worse. Aaron was training for his MMA fight when we were in the house, so that inspired me to take action.”
“I completely overhauled my diet. Out went the full English breakfasts, followed by pie and chips for lunch and lasagne for dinner.”
“In came steamed veg and lean turkey breasts. I would miss lunch most days and have a Forza Shake It Slim meal replacement shake which fills you up but gives you all the vitamins you need to live healthily.”
“When I need a bit of added zip for the gym, I would take Forza Raspberry K2 capsules which take the edge off your appetite and give you lots of added energy.”
“I am determined not to put on weight again so I can look as good as the other Geordie boys when we start filming again in February.”
Former hairdresser Nathan was spurred to lose the weight by jibes on social media after being branded a ‘fat turkey’ by fans of the show.
He was bingeing on as much as 6,000 calories a day during filming and developed a round pot belly and ‘man tits’ because he was so big.
He came out as gay in his second series and has enjoyed snogs with co-stars Aaron Chalmers and Scott Timlin during games of Truth or Dare.
Geordie Shore’s Nathan Henry: how Forza Supplements help me to sculpt my dream body
“Losing weight and getting into shape is hard. You can achieve your goals much more quickly with help from the right supplements. The team at Forza developed a programme for me. It involved up to two hours’ exercise a day, supported by the use of supplements.
“I swapped some lunches for Forza Shake It Slim meal replacements, which contain only 204 calories per serving but have all the nutrients you need and leave you feeling full.
“If I needed some extra energy for the gym, I would take the Raspberry K2 capsules which give you a lot of added zip and take the edge off your appetite. They really helped.
