Johnny Vegas has lost a huge amount of weight and looks unrecognisable

James Dawson

He says that bacon butties are now “all too rare a treat”

As we’ve previously pointed out, ditching a “dad bod” can mean more than just sustaining long spells of cardio, it can involve entire lifestyle changes and even a complete transformation of personal outlook.

So, fair play to Johnny Vegas, who looks absolutely nothing like you might remember him in a new pic posted to Twitter.

The 47-year-old comedian shared an image of himself looking slimmed down, alongside a breakfast of avocado, scrambled eggs and tomatoes – a big change from his previous diet of bacon butties and fry-ups.

Vegas wrote to his over 300 thousand followers: “It’s a far cry from a Thatto Heath fry up….ooh you’ve changed Vegas.

“Apologies fellow tweeters, busy of late and treating our chats like a bacon butty, sadly an all too rare a treat of late x”

As you can imagine the tweet received a universally positive response from social media users. One fan told him: “Wow you look amazing, well done you! I take it you are following a low carb healthy fats way of eating?”

Another commented: “You’re looking amazing, Johnny!”

We’ve previously featured a range of stories of men who have undergone dramatic lifestyle changes, including a ‘bottle a night’ man who dropped almost half his body weight and an IT consultant who ditched a 4,000 calorie-a-day diet to get seriously ripped.

If you – or someone you know – has made an impressive transformation with a story to tell, you could be featured on JOE’s Transformation Tuesday!
