Mark Labbett weight reduction: The Chase star unveils weight loss plan plan which noticed him shed 10st
Mark Labbett, also known as The Beast on the hit daily quiz show The Chase, has been in pursuit of weight loss for several years. At 6’6 tall, the quizzer tipped the scales with its heaviest of 29 stones. But after changing his lifestyle and revising his diet, he lost a whopping 10 pounds. That’s how he did it.
Mark made his television debut when The Chase first aired in 2009.
However, in 2003, when he was a full-time teacher in his senior year, Mark was the heaviest at 150 pounds.
The star admitted that at the time he was “close to being on high blood pressure pills”.
While he lost a few stones over the years, he didn’t begin to lose weight dramatically “until just before lockdown”.
He said, “Several factors went well together and the weight just fell off.

But he admitted, “I miss the pub food so much.
“As much as I love chips and other carbohydrates, I have a little less than before.”
The TV star has also cut the amount of sugar he consumes in what he previously referred to as his “downfall.”
“It’s a cycle; You’re less hungry, so you eat less and lose weight, so you’re less hungry. “
When Mark appeared on Loose Women in March, he spoke about how he was tracking his weight loss.
He said, “I’ve been gradually downing Xs from my size, from 5XL to 4XL, and it looks like the next time I go shopping, I’ll be able to squeeze into XL pants .
“Small things, but important things.”
While Mark’s weight loss is a huge accomplishment, he previously told Express.co.uk that he “still has a way to go”.
“A few years ago it turned out that I wasn’t far from not having diabetes.
“I was pretty close. Unfortunately, I let myself go a bit because I didn’t know it then. “
Commenting on his diagnosis of diabetes, Mark added, “I have skin on my lower legs that is not healing properly.
“A nurse looked at me and asked, ‘Are you sure you are not a diabetic?’
“They did a test and she said, ‘Yes, you are diabetic.'”
Mark was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2017 and is determined to lose more weight.
He currently weighs 19 kilos.
