Do you remember Danny Andrews the bodybuilder who eats fish and rice-cakes in every meal 8 times per day? But what you probably didn’t know is that the show he was on was filmed about 9 years ago and now he is a massive bodybuilder who hates fish.
The clip which was taken from a BBC Three documentary called Baby Faced Bodybuilders. In it, a 16-year-old Danny Andrews explains his daily diet during the fortnight prior to the Mr Cumbria bodybuilding competition.
He said: “Eight o’clock in the morning I’ll have fish and a rice cake. At 10 o’clock, I’ll have fish. At 12 o’clock, I’ll have fish and a rice cake. At two o’clock, I’ll have fish. At four o’clock – just before I train – I’ll have fish and a rice cake.
I’ll train, I’ll have my fish.I’ll come home, have some more fish, with a rice cake, and then have some more fish before I go to bed. ”
Speaking to LADbible, he said: “Some people rip me saying I thought fish was brain food, but clearly it’s not.
“People ask if I was sponsored by Captain Birdseye. People have made memes and remixes on YouTube, also Scott Mills used to play it weekly, he even spoke to Jake Gyllenhaal about it.”
But now he is 29 and has turned into an absolute man and a massive bodybuilder.
He said: “My diet was only that for the last two weeks before my show – I don’t actually like fish. Instead of saying I have eight meals of fish a day, and every other meal I have a rice cake, I was trying to work out times.
“So it makes me appear absolutely stupid, fitting the stereotype of the typical bodybuilder.
“At the time I was so embarrassed, but I have embraced it.
“I look completely different now when I say I’m into the gym people ask if I’m on the fish and the rice cakes, not knowing it’s me.”
