James 'Arg' Argent weighs 18 stone
James 'Arg' Argent weighs 18 stone.
The 'Only Way is Essex' star dropped jaws 11 months ago when he posed topless showing off his trim figure but he has since gone on to gain a disappointing three stone and is worried his girlfriend Lydia Bright won't fancy him anymore.
Speaking to NOW magazine, he said: "I don't want to get bigger because I want Lydia to find me attractive. When you're slimmer you look better. Our sex life isn't suffering as much as it did last time, but I know that if I put on more weight it would affect it. Lydia's being really strict with me.
"She's on it. Around the house there's nothing but healthy food. Junk food is banned- there's not even any hidden."
The 28-year-old reality TV star reveals he is "bigger than before" and partially blames his jet-setting lifestyle.
He explained: "I'm so disappointed with myself. I'm bigger than before and I can't fit into my clothes. I had gone down to 15 stone but it's crept back on, I've lost the confidence I had. In Austria [when he was competing on 'The Jump'], all I was eating was carbs. 'Sugar Free Farm' [a show which saw him eat all organic produce] helped for a bit, but I just went back to eating junk again. Living all over the place puts me out of a routine and I can't eat the healthy food I would at home. I want to loose the weight I've put on a be healthy. I prefer my face when it's slimmer. I know it won't be easy, but I'm determined to get fit as soon as I can."
