This story is about a man who lives in Northern Ireland. His name is Roley Mclntyre. Roley Mclntyre was big — he was very big. He weighed 272 kilograms.
For lunch Roley ate ten pieces of bacon, four eggs, ten potatoes, and fried vegetables. For dinner he ate meat and more potatoes, and after dinner he always ate desserts. Before he went to bed, he had a few sandwiches and some cake.
Roley couldn’t drive a regular car because he was too big. He couldn’t fit in the front seat. Roley had a special car, which had no front seat. Roley drove his car from the back seat.
One day Roley went to the doctor. The doctor said, «Mr. Mclntyre, you have a special car. Now you need to buy a special coffin — a coffin for a very big man. You have to lose weight, or you’re going to die soon.»
Roley went on a diet. He started eating healthy food. For breakfast he ate cereal with nonfat milk. For lunch he ate baked beans on toast. For dinner he ate fish and vegetables. He stopped eating fried food and sweets. He also started taking regular exercises. He went jogging every morning and rode a bicycle.
After Roley began to lose weight he met a pretty woman. Her name was Josephine. Josephine told Roley not to stop his diet. Roley listened to her and continued to lose weight. In 18 months he lost182 kilograms.
