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.
