Millionaire Irish broadcaster Stephen Nolan believes he is not a success in life because of a failure to manage his weight — and not having any children. Stephen Raymond Nolan, born 20 August 1973 is a controversial Northern Irish television and radio presenter.
As he get older, Nolan has revealed he is more and more worried about his health and his large frame. A few years ago, the girthy presenter reportedly managed to reduce his weight from a whopping 22 stone to 13 stone, but has since put it all back on.
“I’m a complete failure with my health. Weight has defeated me and continues to defeat me,” Nolan has said.
“No matter how hard I drive myself in other things, I’m a total and absolute failure with my weight. It gets me down, it worries me. Now I’m getting older, it worries me even more. I can’t beat it. I cannot do it.”
Born in the Shankill Road area of Belfast, Nolan was attended the Royal Belfast Academical Institution and The Queen’s University of Belfast, where he studied French and Business Studies. Nolan has worked for Belfast CityBeat, BBC Northern Ireland and BBC Radio Ulster. Nolan also hosted Question Time, Extra Time.
He has previously went on record as saying that his weight has been a struggle his entire life. In a previous Twitter post, he wrote: “No matter how much I’ve tried over the last 40 years, I always end up getting fatter. Let’s see this time, though I can still hear the Fat-man in my ear, telling me I’ll always be obese.”
Stephen Nolan seems to have no problem losing weight, as he has gone on a weight loss journey on multiple occasions. One he reaches his goal weight, that’s where he loses motivation and puts it back on again. Any healthy eating regime has to be a way of life and not a fad. Fast weight loss, inevitably leads to fast weight gain.
Nolan’s least favourite food are said to be jam sandwiches. He is said to gorge a lot on takeaways and sugary drinks which leads to weight gain.
When you lose weight quickly, you’re losing muscle along with fat. Then, when you are in the phase of yo-yo dieting where you will gain fat first, not muscle. In the long run, this can impact your ability to walk, lift things or climb stairs.
In order to maintain a healthy weight you should set realistic weight loss goals, such as a 1 to 2 pound weight loss per week. Eat fewer calories by reducing portions and do not skip meals.
