In 2013 Seb Broster was diagnosed with a rare form of blood cancer. As a result of a combination of chemotherapy and steroids, he suddenly ballooned to 135kgs and lost all his hair.
That's when we first met in London.
The thing that struck me most about Seb back then was how positive he was and just how funny he was.
"A black sense of humour is what got me through this whole journey. You've got to laugh no matter what."
Our penchant for growing moustaches for the Movember Foundation brought us together and fast forward to today, not only does Ben have a serious main on his head and is drug free, but he's also dropped down to 87kgs.
Loosing 48kgs in the process since March 2014. The equivalent of a small child in weight!
So when Seb walked into our studio this morning, I could barely recognise him.
He had, after all, lost 1/3 of his body weight over the course of three years and was in the best shape of his life.
In today's interview Seb shares his journey, what helped him stay positive throughout the whole process and what he believes is the formula for getting in shape.
Spoiler alert, it's pretty simple: stay positive, be consistent and make sure to have a life.
If you enjoyed todays episode, please share it with a friend as that is the biggest compliment you could give me.
Thanks and see you next week!
