- She’d also devour over six packets of crisps in a single sitting
- Jess has now dropped from a UK size 22 to a trim size 10 after losing five stone

A woman has managed to overcome a love for McDonald’s food to drop five stone and become a personal trainer.
Jessica Hamilton, 28, from Hull, Yorkshire, has traded her colossal McDonald’s orders for weights and cardio in order to shift the pounds once and for all.
Relying on McDonald’s for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Jessica was eating up to four double cheeseburgers with chips, the wrap of the day and five fizzy drinks daily.
But even this ginormous order couldn’t satisfy her hunger pangs, as she’d also devour over six packets of crisps in a single sitting.
