James Argent, of TOWIE fame, recently lost two stone at a Portugal health retreat where he picked up his weight loss journey again
The former TOWIE star, 32, favoured fitness in the sunshine when he went for a swim at the Juicy Oasis, in Portugal in recent weeks.
During his time in the limelight, he has had a yo-yo diet, which saw him weigh in at 24 stone at his heaviest.
More recently, the singer slimmed down to a trim 13st 7lb but he piled back on the pounds with takeaways when lockdown proved to be a challenge.
Back on track, Arg booked himself into a health retreat in Portugal after his paths crossed with juicing expert Jason Vale.
It was here the TV personality really got into his groove and lost a further two stone by following their juicing diet.
While at the health retreat, the single star made the most of the scorching hot weather by lapping up the rays shirtless.
Arg took a dip just wearing his black and blue patterned swimming shorts for the afternoon in the blazing heat.
Juicy Oasis opened again with adjustments to ensure it complied with the COVID-19 health and safety regulations.
From paddle boarding to mountain bikes, the health retreat ensured it catered to every kind of fitness regime.
Arg told The Sun on Sunday of his experience at the end of August: “I feel incredible and I’m determined to lose even more weight.
“I met Jason on the off chance and he called my bluff when I said I’d book in. So the next day I bought my flights and flew to his resort in Portugal. All I drank for a fortnight was juices.”
Recently, the reality star celebrated being nine months sober and clean following a battle with drugs.
Many of his fellow TOWIE stars publicly supported him as he come clean about his past cocaine habits.
He went on: “I’ve struggled with my weight for years but this has really changed my outlook. I’m free from drink and drugs still, which is a huge achievement. And making sure I lose weight and get healthier is an ongoing goal.”
James has arrived back in the UK ahead of his Loose Women appearance on Zoom with his mum.
It’s only been a brief time since he split from his ex Gemma Collins who had been a big supporter of him getting clean and losing weight.
James and Gemma’s love story spanned more than a decade while they romanced on and off over the years.
But the entertainer hasn’t let the break up dampen his spirits as he continues to go ahead with his positive goals.
His former flame Gemma has also kept up her weight loss goals after she dropped an impressive three stone.
Neither Gemma or Arg have officially moved on with a new lover since their relationship broke down after a string of rows.
In mid September, Arg confided in fans about his healing process after he embarked on a healthy lifestyle.
« Im proud to say I’m nearly 9 months clean & sober. I’m really enjoying a healthy lifestyle & I’m not looking back. » (sic)
