Day 1 - 8 Week Fat Loss Transformation

8 Week Fat Loss Transformation – A-List Owner James Dodds


If you’re reading this, you’re probably scouring the interent for the next fat loss scheme or magic pill that will miraculously incinerate the bodyfat off your physique. I hate to say it, but no such short cut exists and that’s not what you’ll find here. What you will find however, is a normal, 25 year old bloke, who works very hard, has a son, fiancé, dog and a generally hectic life. Sounds familiar? It’s because it is, I’m very relatable, down to earth and I’ll hopefully give you the no BS answers you are looking for in regards to fat loss and then back it up with real life results on myself.


Before I start, my 8 week transformation is specific to me and my bodyweight, goals etc what may work for me, may not necessarily work for you, however I hope to provide you with an insight into my fitness journey to help you in some way with your own!


To set the foundations of this transformation, below are my current stats for both my body and training so you know exactly where I am at! If you would also like to see my first transformation picture, by all means head to my Instagram handle below and follow along there. Updates will be posted every week on a Friday both via Instagram and here obviously in the form of a blog.
