A man who lost eight stone in less than eight months is becoming a weight loss mentor in Stevenage in a bid to help others feel happier in their own skin.
Stephen Savastano was morbidly obese when he joined weight loss company LighterLife last June, and says he transformed his diet and his life.
He said: “One of the biggest things LighterLife taught me is that successful weight management is as much to do with what’s going on in your head, as it is with what’s going into your mouth.
“You won’t believe it looking at me now, but last June I weighed around 24 stone.
“My family and friends would mention how they were worried about my health, but I wasn’t ready to lose weight.”

Eventually, Stephen decided enough was enough and that something had to be done about his excessive weight and he joined the LighterLife programme.
He says you can lose a stone a month with LighterLife’s meals, shakes, bars and pots. This is combined with a behaviour change programme which uses cognitive behaviour therapy to help people understand the reasons behind why they overeat, and provide the tools needed to keep weight off long-term.

Stephen said: “Joining LighterLife was the best thing I’ve ever done.
“It was really easy swapping my normal diet of takeaways and cakes for four nutritious LighterLife products.
“LighterLife suits my busy lifestyle as I’d make up a shake, grab a bar or add hot water to a pot whilst on the go.
“Everything in my life is so much better now, and I want to be able to help others achieve the same kind of success that I have.”
Stephen says he is determined to help others achieve their own weight loss goals in his role as a LighterLife mentor at The Business and Technology Centre on Stevenage’s Bessemer Drive.
He says he will find clients the plan most suitable for their needs, as well as help to keep them on track and provide them with access to LighterLife’s weekly telephone counselling groups.
