Doctors had warned 30-stone Adam, from Wallasey, that he could be putting his life at risk with his regular diet of burgers, snacks and cheesy chips.

So he decided to start exercising and using making vegetable and fruit juices at home.

In the evening, he would eat a fresh home-cooked meal.

Adam told listeners how he now wants to raise money for Wirral Hospice St John's and The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity through his exercise.

"Dad passed away from lung cancer just before Christmas 2011. This is to support mum and to focus his memory to some great events." - Adam Harding-Jones

Adam's now planning to enter all sorts of fundraisers from half-marathons and obstacle races to long-distance bike rides.

He hopes that what he'll lose in stone, he'll gain in pounds!
