We all love a cheeky burger every now and again, but one mum has lost a whopping seven stone by ditching her favourite fast-food treat.

Jodie Edkins, 34, first started munching on McDonald's when her daughter, Islam, was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2011. Thankfully, she has now recovered.

Amid the stress, Jodie found herself grabbing the quick and easy takeaways in between hospital appointments and visits and, before she knew it, she'd ballooned to a whopping 20 stone.

In two years, she made her way through over 1,000 Big Macs within two years. The Derby-based mum was quoted in the Daily Star saying: "I was a McDonald's addict."

But since Isla's recovery, Jodie turned her attention to her weight and has managed to battle the bulge by cutting out McDonald's for a whole year and joining Slimming World.

Well done, Jodie - we're impressed!
