Dr Alex George has showed off his slimmed down appearance as he shared the secret to his ‘life changing weight loss’ this week.
The former Love Island star, 32, took to TikTok as he chatted with the camera during a stroll in the park.
Alex’s features appeared more defined following the health kick after previously revealing his eating disorder following being ‘fat-shamed’.
In the post he said: ‘So I’ve lost a lot of weight within the last year, I’d say a life changing amount of weight’.
‘The main reason I was able to make the change was because I didn’t think about weight’.

He continued: ‘So even though the biggest physical thing that’s changed about me is I’ve lost a lot of weight, it was never the goal’.
Alex went on to say he had never became ‘fixated on calories by numbers’ or by ‘weight on the scales’ and said that is how people lose sight of why they are watching what they eat.
‘If you want to lose weight it’s probably because you want to feel happier, healthier, more capable or maybe it’s about confidence or your mental health’.
He revealed that instead of worrying about calories he simply removed the ‘toxic’ things in his life including both people and alcohol.
Saying he refused to restrict himself and instead has been concentrating on nourishing his body.
Earlier this year he bravely revealed he suffered with an eating disorder and ‘didn’t eat for days’ after being fat-shamed by two women at work.
The former reality star who works as the UK Youth Mental Health Ambassador and an A&E doctor, penned a heartfelt post to his Instagram.
Recalling the incident from ‘a few years ago,’ Alex said he could still hear the women’s ‘cruel laughter’ as they ‘squeezed his tummy’ in the canteen.
Uploading a photo of himself in scrubs, he included a lengthy caption in order to raise awareness for eating disorders.

Alex began: ‘I’m going to tell you a story, that I never intended to share, but I believe is important in raising awareness.’
He continued: ‘A few years ago, I was queuing in the cafe to get my lunch when two women came up to me. “Alright Dr Alex” was quickly followed by the other squeezing my tummy and saying, “You’ve put on a lot of weight since Love Island!!”‘
They walked off laughing. This was in front of a queue of people as well as others sat around the canteen. I was mortified and ashamed.
‘I felt so disgusted with myself that I left the queue and not only didn’t eat for the rest of the shift, but nothing for the rest of the day or the next. This was followed by binge eating for several days. It really hurt.
‘I felt ashamed to go to work in scrubs. Interestingly, no one would have known the affect it had on me. As for many others, that was dealt with silently.
‘I’m not sharing this story to “make this about me”, I have come a long way in my relationship with my body aside from a few hangups which we all have.
‘I wanted to tell you this story because words hurt, and they can stay with you for a long time. They can be tipping points for ED’s or trigger relapse.

‘That was a few years ago and I can still hear their laughter. It was cruel.’
‘This is eating disorder awareness week and I just want to raise a reminder that men struggle with body image too, often in silence.’
Alex concluded his post: ‘Please be kind to others, we all make mistakes but do think before you speak, or type. What is a moment on your lips could be a lifetime in their heads.
‘There are some incredible people and organisations working in this space. Please check out @hopevirgo_ and @beatedsupport who are relentless in their mission.
‘Also, have a listen to my @thestompcast episode with @angelascanlon who shares her story with an ED, truly inspiring and I have no doubt will help others.
‘Just to finish by saying, I really was hesitant to share this story, even as I’m about to hit share I have my doubts.
‘I forgive those people and I love my body and everything it allows me to do. I just hope this will resonate with others and raise awareness. Let’s look after each other, shall we?’
