Carl Parnell ate a lot as a child, so much so that his parents would give him anything. Although he played football, the 37 year old has always been a chubby child, even during his teenage years. At a loss as to how to shed the weight, in 2012 Parnell had a brainwave. For two years, he had followed many diets and training plans that just didn’t work. It was always the same process: he would lose a little weight and then put it all back on. After struggling to find a workout that worked for him, Parnell decided to go back to the drawing board. He enrolled in an online nutrition course where things really started to change.
