Will 44-year-old fire-fighter David Beaver regain his life and health before it’s too late? Find out when this high kilo casualty attempts to beat the bulge and get back on the path to lifelong good health in only two months in the hit local series DOWNSIZE ME! screening on Tuesday, October 28th at 7:30pm on 3.

Over the last few years Beaver has been busy fighting fires but not the flab and he’s now crushing the scales at a whopping 120kg. With an appetite bigger than his belly it’s no surprise he now struggles to tie his shoelaces let alone keep up with the younger fire-fighters at work.

However this ex-marine hasn’t always been a one-stop eating machine, his weight troubles began after an accident on the job that left him badly burnt. After the unfortunate event Beaver was unable to train for months and as the calories still kept coming so did the kilos.

Now using food for comfort, this fireman is no longer fighting fit but wanting desperately to fight the fat. But with an insatiable sweet tooth that even drives him to sneak in to his 10-year-old son’s sugary treats, this dad’s eating habits and portion sizes are out of control!

It’s going to take all the know-how and diet dexterity of Damian Kristof to get this oversized fireman back into shape. But will Lee-Anne’s tough training tactics be too much for this ex-marine to handle?

And will it be as tough on fellow fire-fighter, Steve, who has taken on a new job of Beaver’s “Crash Diet Dummy”. Can he stomach Beaver’s old diet, and how will it affect his fitness and his job?

Make sure not to miss Beaver’s heart-warming downsizing mission and find out the true price of a high calorie diet. DOWNSIZE ME!, screens Tuesday, October 28th at 7:30pm on 3.
