Woman loses 6 stone after documenting weight loss on Instagram

Ashleigh Munn, 24, of Greenock, Scotland, decided to lose weight when she reached 16 stone and was forced to use crutches because her hip and pelvis bones could no longer take her weight.

Ms. Munn documented her diet on Instagram and ensured she ate healthily, adding fresh fruit and vegetables to her diet and making meals from scratch. She also recently turned vegetarian, according to her Twitter account.

“People don’t realize how many calories they are obtaining from caloric beverages and snacks, and these can be easy interventions … that can help reduce calories,” Victoria Catenacci, MD, assistant professor of Medicine at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center told WebMD.
