Father who nearly ate himself to death loses 350Ibs

A father who was 'eating himself to death' has revealed his remarkable 'flab to abs' transformation after losing 350Ibs (25 stone) and having 28Ibs (2 stone) of excess skin removed.

Zach Moore, 36, even recorded a 'goodbye' video to eight-year-old son Zach Jr, because he believed his weight would soon kill him.

Weighing a hefty 500lb (33st) with a dangerously high BMI of 60, he felt like he was 'playing Russian roulette' with his life. 

After being hospitalised with food poisoning in 2013, Zach realised he had to change his life – and turn his life and health around for his child and wife Amber, 30.

So he quit smoking, stopped drinking fizzy drinks, cut out sugar and sought out weight loss surgery.

The Florida man believed he wouldn't live to see his son Zach Jr grow up

He lost the incredible amount of weight in just under two years, after having a gastric bypass and walking 10,000 steps a day.

But his extreme weight loss left him with horrific hanging skin all over his body that left him with sores, infections and difficulty moving.

Since then he's been under the knife ten times to remove the skin and after recovering from his last surgery – a belly-button revision five months ago – he's revealed his body for the first time.

Zach, from Pierson in Florida, US, said: 'In the video from 2013, I was reading my son ' Green Eggs and Ham story, I believed it would be my last Christmas with my family.

'We filmed it so that Zach Jr. could grow up with memories to remember his dad by.

'I truly felt like my life was coming to an end. I knew it was near. It's not a good feeling knowing that all you have left to offer your family is memories.

'I almost ate myself to death, but instead I found inner strength and worked very hard to get to where I am today.'

70-inch waist 

At his heaviest weight, Zach was an excessive eater, consuming whatever takeaways he fancied as well as drinking at least two liters of cola each day.

After making changes following his food poisoning hospitalisation, he lost 110lb (7 stone 8Ibs) in 100 days.

It kickstarted his journey back to health and gave him the courage to seek out weight loss surgery three years ago.

Zach said: 'I was having issues walking, breathing and getting around every day, I had lost all of my sexual desire and was just miserable in life.

'I also had issues while sleeping and had to use a lot medication for health concerns along with a lot of visits to the doctor.

'I had a 70-inch waist, my legs alone were bigger than most people's bodies and definitely larger than my entire body today.'

Zach, a mixed martial arts fight card promoter, said his muscles had begun to waste away after years of being so inactive.

'I had to start from scratch, slowly building up muscle mass in my upper body, core area, back and legs,' he said.

He has had an 'extreme' type of tummy tuck known as a feur de lis which leaves scars horizontally and vertically
