Gym-obsessed dad given hours to live after ‘cooking his insides’ with diet pills
A DAD who wanted a perfect ‘beach body’ was given hours to live after he overdosed on controversial diet pills - which “cooked” his body from the inside.
Lewis Brown, 25, started going to the gym to get fit but quickly became obsessed with working out and started taking steroids to gain a 15-and-a-half stone frame.
The lab worker - who went to the gym every day - then turned to controversial diet pills DNP this summer to help him lose extra fat so he could add more muscle.
But the father-of-one overdosed when he took eight of the ‘fat burners’ in a day and the poisonous chemicals increased his body temperature to almost 42 degrees.
