Super slimmer Peter Ajello has achieved every dieter’s dream, after he managed to lose over 15 stone eating chocolate. But his sweet tooth made giving up cakes and ice-cream difficult, so he turned to an unconventional slimming tool – dark chocolate.
Peter immediately cut all junk food and alcohol out of his diet. But every time his will power started to fade he would treat himself to a small square of rich, dark chocolate – just enough to satisfy his sweet cravings. The only sugary treat he allowed himself was small squares of TRU chocolate – which he says helped him overcome his sweet cravings.
Since January, Peter has continued on his chocolate diet – and has lost a further four stone. Peter, who is currently writing a book about his amazing weight loss, said: ‘If someone had told me two years ago that I would weigh 14 stone now, I would have laughed in their face. ‘And if they’d said I would weigh 14 stone and still be eating chocolate, I would have laughed even harder.
‘The chocolate saved my life. I would have never managed to stick to the diet without it – I would have caved. ‘I hope that my story will show other dieters out there that anyone can lose weight – if I can do it, they can too.’
