Zimbabwean gospel musician Stanley Gwanzura, affectionately known as Pastor Gee, has spoken on his weight loss journey which saw him shedding off 43 kg, from his phenomenal 193 kg to 150,8 kg.
The “Mabiribobi” hitmaker has credited his transformation to the past months of self-healthcare: he spent special time focusing on his body during the pandemic. And, it worked wonders for him. He told The Herald:
My target is to get down to 100kg and its possible given what I have done in the past.
I started this journey in March 14, 2022, through a programme Aruka Lighten Up, which is run by Pastor Mtungwazi.
They started me with supplements from Vitamin C, and D as well as a diet plan of 500 calories for 40 days, a strict diet.
I would walk 3km to 5km three times a week. I cut out bread, sugar, rice, spaghetti and fizzy drinks. I am much better and lighter and energetic on stage. I can now dance freely.
I would eat anything, everything that I came across and that came to my mind, especially on carbohydrates.
In 2018, I cut down fizzy drinks, before that I could drink four litres or more of fizzy drinks.
It affected my health later and had challenges on joints and on knees.
I then started adjusting the liquid intake of it.
Pastor Gee who has become a source of inspiration to those fighting obesity says “it’s never too late to win the battle against over-weight.”
His family too was equally shocked after realising that Pastor G was on a massive body transformation.
Pastor Gee says the death of his dad at the height of the COCID-19-induced lockdown made him realise he could transform his body.
