Biggest Loser contestant Ryan Preuss was eliminated last night.

RYAN Preuss holds record he is not proud of.

The 29-year-old from Brisbane was the heaviest Biggest Loser contestant in the history of the weight loss show.

With a starting weight of 240 kg he described hearing he held the record as "soul destroying".

But despite getting eliminated after yesterday's weigh in, Brisbane's Ryan Preuss is well on his way to reaching his goal weight.

On the show he lost 34kg and hopes to lose another 40 to 50kg before finale.

"I want to be 150-160kg, that would just be fantastic," he said with excitement.

"I think I will look pretty different.

"It's going to be hard work but I am on my way."

Before the show Preuss used to consume 6,000 calories a day, more than three times the recommended calorie intake for men.

In a week he devoured four cooked chickens, 12 chocolate bars, four family blocks of chocolate as well as pies, sausage rolls and litres of Coca-Cola.

These days what he eats is worlds apart.

Now is daily diet consists of two Weet-Bix for breakfast, 100kg of ham or chicken for a snacks, a ham salad for lunch and 200kg of chicken or pork with veggies for dinner.

"From the party food I was eating to eating this is a big change," he admitted.

"The funny thing is it is the food I was eating but without the junk food and in the correct quantities.

"I used to eat chicken and I still do, now I just eat the right amount.

"It's all about just replacing the junk."

It hasn't been an easy journey since leaving the house but he is not giving up.

"It's been a roller coaster, I'll be honest with you," he said.

"It's not as easy as I thought it would be but it builds character."

The hardest thing he has struggled with is the work/life/exercise balance.

"I thought it would be simple, I would go to the gym before work, work and then go to the gym after work but it's harder to do than I anticipated."

He works out everyday doing four sessions with his personal trainer and on the other days he sweats through 45 to an hour of cardio.

He said the biggest lesson he learnt during his time in the house was you can only control what you can control.

"You can't worry about everything else.

"Also I am a lot happier and more positive now which aids in weight loss."

Preuss entered the house looking for love and he said despite still being single he was on the right track to achieve that.

"It's about loving yourself first and I am learning to do that. I have more confidence."

 

Biggest Loser screens on Ten at 7pm Monday to Friday.
