A TAKEAWAY addict who ate three McDonald’s meals a day for eight years has now lost 14 stone — half his body weight.

IT worker Matthew Riggs gorged 7,000 calories from the fast food giant and drank a bottle of rum a day, pushing him over 27 stone.

But it all came to an end when his son Harrison, ten, said: “You’re fat Daddy — are you going to have a heart attack and die?” That 2019 comment rocked Matt, 35, of Basildon, Essex.

He said: “I just choked up. I had to walk out of his room.”

He dumped McDonald’s for good, cut the alcohol and joined a gym, spending 755 consecutive days working out.

Matt also changed his diet to oats, protein powder, chicken, vegetables and turkey meatballs.
