Tyson Fury shared a throwback photo of himself from a time when he weighed over 400 pounds to remind his 2.5 million Instagram followers that “anything is possible.”

The heavyweight boxer posted the grainy photo with the message: “When someone says you can’t do something, look at this and remember anything is possible. This is me at over 400lb.”

That’s 28.6 stone or 181kg. Fury is 6 ft. 9 inches (206cm) tall, too.

Fury, 31, has reportedly lost around 10 stone (140 pounds/63kg) since the time of that photo around two years ago, according to The Sun.

The British boxer lost the weight by eating a hefty 3,500 calories a day – and even more on workout days, his nutritionist Greg Marriott previously told Sky Sports.

To ensure he got all his calories in, Fury ate seven meals a day and followed the keto diet, ie. eating high fat, low carb, and moderate protein.

Fury has been open about struggling with his weight, as well as alcohol, drugs, and depression in the past.

However, he now seems to be in a much healthier place, and is providing inspiration to his fans.

“The mind is a powerful thing and you’ve have that along with the skills to beat anyone. Huge fan!” commented martial artist Josh Thomson.

“Yes brother,” added fighter Darren Till.

Boxing coach Ben Davison simply commented a “hands up” emoji.
