Personal trainer put on five stone so he could lose weight with his client

Adonis Hill purposefully piled on 70lbs (five stone) in three months so that he could motivate his client Alissa Kane who had been overweight most of her life.

Adonis, 35 from Brooklyn had overcome his own battle with weight and depression in his late twenties.

For three months, Adonis consumed 8,000 calories a day, eating doughnuts for breakfast, hot dogs or pizza for lunch, packets of Oreos as snacks, and McDonald’s for dinner, as well as drinking bottles of sugary fizzy drinks. He also stopped exercising.

The personal trainer consumed 8,000 calories a day, eating doughnuts, hot dogs, pizza for lunch and McDonald’s for dinner, as well as drinking fizzy drinks. He also stopped exercising.

Doctors advised him to stop as he was at risk of a heart attack.


The training journey was captured for US TV show Fit to Fat to Fit.

‘I was putting in a lot of work in the gym but eating right was hard this time because I was coming off an old addiction. I had to wean myself off unhealthy food,’ he told Buzzfeed.

He cut out the junk food and stayed on a high-fat, high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet to allow his body to burn fat more readily.

#bbaResults #tbt #2015 All In One Year from left to right/top to bottom! Wtf was I thinking right? And Why? I’ll tell you Why! Let’s start by saying: “Life is crazy af”! But I can tell you this one thing for sure … An important part of living a happy and fulfilling life includes being part of a close-knit community where you can share, help and support people you care about. It also includes being kind to strangers, and learning to replace envy and anger with understanding and empathy. It’s all about HELPING those in need “BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY” (MX voice) I can’t front …as a trainer it’s easy to get all wrapped up in fixing your own body that you forget about helping others reach their goals. For me, when I say goals … Goals are way past just the physical. And while its important to put yourself first, its even more important to help others whenever you can. Being generous isn’t even always about altruism – becoming more generous and compassionate will have real tangible benefits in your own life. My life is so poppin because I actually give a damn about other people…. I’m telling you it’s a high like no other. You gotta try this approach to life sometime #PuffPuffGive (source: KeepInspiring) #WeAreALLInThis2gether _______________________________________ I don’t want to live in the kind of world where we don’t look out for each other. Not just the people that are close to us, but anybody who needs a helping hand. I cant change the way anybody else thinks, or what they choose to do, but I can do my bit. -Charles de Lint #ButImGOINGtoChangeYourMindset1st #MentalTrainingBeforePhysicalTraining #OnlyALifeLivedForOthersIsALifeWorthwhile YOUR TURN!

Alissa, meanwhile, swapped her heavily processed foods and takeaways for home-made stir-fries and snacks of porridge oats and fruit.

Adonis wrote on Instagram: ‘How did @alissabethkane lose almost 60 lbs in 4 months and ENJOY the process at the same time? …. It’s simple! Instead of asking her what are your fitness goals, I asked her: “what’s on your mind and what are your life goals?” I became her friend first then her trainer 2nd.’

Been waiting to post these bad boys!! #fittofattofit
