The 30-year-old is known for scooping a win at the World’s Strongest Man 2017 competition, as well as landing a world record for lifting 500kg under strongman rules the year before.
Eddie, who hails from Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire, has also won the Strongest Man competitions in the UK and England a number of times.
However, last week, the athlete took to Instagram to unveil how his physique has changed in a matter of months.
Posting two photos side-by-side as before and after shots, the deadlifter – dubbed The Beast – showcased his noticeably slimmer figure, as well as his significantly more defined abdominal muscles.
Beside the post, Eddie explained how he had slimmed down by five stone, from around 30 stone 12 pounds to 25 stone to 12 pounds, within the year.
“196kg vs 164kg 2017 Vs 2018,” he wrote in view of his 896,000 followers.
“Lots of people asking for comparison photos from my biggest to now, well here it is…”
Shortly after delighting fans with the post, Eddie posted another capture of himself on his Instagram account.
The Staffordshire-based star, who announced he intended to retire from the World’s Strongest Man competitions last year, went on to share his thoughts about losing weight.
Sharing some tips about how to shift the pounds, Eddie insisted that dieters shouldn’t underestimate the importance of having a good breakfast in the morning.
“Breakfast is the most important meal of the day; this is where most people will make their first BIG mistake if they’re trying to lose weight,” he wrote.
The star went on to advise fans against sipping a cup of coffee while they enjoyed their first meal of the day.
“Coffee…. The caffeine in your morning coffee stops an enzyme called amylase from working correctly, which is located in your mouth and gut, and breaks down starchy carbs,” he wrote, before claiming: “If you have coffee with your cereal, toast or granola, this is the worst way to start your day.
“Try some citric acid instead, which can actually increase the production of amylase… a glass of orange juice instead is the perfect replacement.”
The Beast went on to tell fans to take a DNA test via the brand Muhdo, as well as find out some “interesting facts”.
Last week, Eddie also let fans in on what he thought had helped him to lose fat while gaining muscle at the same time.
In a lengthy post about how he currently weighed in at around 163-164kg, he told fans how he planned to remain the same weight, while changing his body shape.
“I’ll carry on loosing fat and keep gaining muscle at this weight all being well,” the athlete added.
“I keep taking my oblivion to help this happen and I’m feeling great and not looking too bad either. Oblivion from @myoband.teamsnf.”
Another celebrity who has lost a significant amount is TV chef Gordon Ramsay – who lost four stone by increasing what he ate.
The 51-year-old, who has appeared on shows including Hell’s Kitchen, Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmare, and The F Word, said on The Today Show that he shed 50 pounds (3.6 stone) by eating more, but smaller, portions each day.

The Best Weight-Loss Exercises You Can Do at Home – LIVESTRONG.COM
HOW TO DO IT: While in a high plank, perform a set of mountain climbers, bringing one knee up to the chest, and then switching (left, right, left, right). Then, jump your feet apart, toward the outside of your mat, and back together four times, like you’re doing a jumping jack on the floor. After performing the plank jacks, complete another set of mountain climbers.
Weight loss diet plan: This woman shed a staggering 8st by making this one simple change – Express
For those who are overweight and need to slim down there is a lot of information available about the best way for them to do this.
If unsure where to start, it can be reassuring for dieters to look to others who have been through their own weight loss transformations in order to get tips.
One woman shared her weight loss on Reddit after she lost an incredible 7st 9lb in just over a year.
The Reddit user “LDNurseMama” posted online about what she did to try and encourage others to make a similar change.
The woman shared she is 38-years-old, 5ft 9in and has slimmed down from a huge 20st 7lb to a much trimmer 12st 12lb.
She showed off her results by posting a picture of her before and after losing the weight and explained more about the changes she made to get slim.
“LDNurseMama” revealed she kicked off her weight loss journey by watching how many calories she ate and also by making an effort to move more.
She wrote: “I started with just tracking my calories closely with my fitness pal, weighing my food, and being really active.
“Then I went to an actual weight loss clinic to meet with nutritionists and doctors to help me plan for the long term weight loss and maintenance.”
This approach helped the slimmer understand how much she was eating and the best types of food to help her shape up.
The dieter revealed she had always been active so changing up her eating habits was one of the biggest changes for her.
She said: “The food portions were the hardest for me, tracking everything in my fitness pal really put things into perspective for me.
“I weighed my food for awhile too until I had a good grip on what my portions should be. It’s hard but worth it.
By closely tracking her calories using a fitness app, the user explained how it helped her understand what she was eating and her weight started to fall off at a steady rate of around 2lb a week.
Since losing the weight, the Reddit user revealed she does not need to track her food as closely as she understands better what she needs to eat.
“LDNurseMama” revealed: “Now I watch what I eat still, eat healthy foods in smaller portions and stay active.”
Dieters hoping to lose a few pounds can start to do this by making other small changes in their lives.
Research published in a report titled “Portion size me: plate-size induced consumption norms and win-win solutions for reducing food intake and waste” explained using smaller plates at meal times may help people eat less.
This trick can help slimmers learn more about portion control and make an effective change in their lives.
Some people losing weight may have a specific area they hope to burn fat from, such as slimming down the waistline.
According to Cecilia Harris, who is a personal trainer and co-founder of Results with Lucy, you must lose weight from the whole body in order to burn belly fat.
She said: “I don’t believe that you can spot train or lose fat in one particular place of your body.”
