Meet 20-year-old Daniel Hassall from Sandbach, Cheshire who has been announced as the Slimming World Young Slimmer of the Year 2014.
Daniel lost 5 stone 2lbs in total with his weight dropping from 18 stone 8lbs (118kg) to 13 stone 6lb (85kg). As well as his weight loss, he has also noticed a dramatic reduction in the number of epileptic seizures he experiences.
Daniel regularly suggfered up to 30 partial seizures a day and one ‘grand mal’, or full seizure, every couple of weeks before his weight loss. Now, he says he suffers from fewer than five partial seizures each day – and the full seizures are far less frequent.
After losing his weight, Daniel now teaches martial arts as a volunteer.
