New York, US: An obese virgin who smashed his girlfriend's head through a wall the first time they had sex has lost a huge 16 stone - and become something of a Casanova in the process.
Gregg Casarona weighed in at 31 stone when he lost his virginity with girlfriend Jennifer, but his huge frame left her in casualty after her head went straight through the wall behind them.
Luckily, Jennifer did not suffer any major injuries, but she did split up with Gregg, prompting him to shed 16 stone, and begin a career as a movie extra.
Gregg, from Long Island in New York, says the transformation in his appearance means he is now getting a lot more female attention, but he was still shy about his relationships.
"Obviously a gentlemen would never divulge how many women he has been with," he said. "What I will say is I get a lot more attention from women now I've lost all the weight, which is another fantastic perk.
"When I was losing weight, my confidence sky rocketed and I was much more outgoing and positive in my outlook. It definitely helped me get more dates but I did not end up officially being with anyone.
"I am currently single but who knows what could change in the upcoming months - at the moment I'm focused on my career and weight management but always looking for fun."
At his heaviest, Gregg was eating a massive 7,500 calories a day - more than three times the amount recommended for a man.
He said: "I started putting on weight and never cared to do anything about it.
"When I hit 440lbs, I just gave up and started thinking I should just see how big I could get.
"At that point my father and godfather sat me down and told me they were scared they would have to bury me - something they didn't want to do, obviously."
When he began losing weight, Gregg - nicknamed "Bubba" because of his size - went to a party where he met Jennifer.
They started dating, and after a month of being together Jennifer suggested taking their relationship to the next level.
Gregg was still a virgin at the time and hadn't taken the power of his near quarter of a ton weight into account, causing him to put his girlfriend's head through a plasterboard wall.
He knocked her unconscious and she had to be taken to the hospital to be checked over.
The couple's escapade was then featured on a TV show called Sex Sent Me to the ER.
This accident, five years ago, spurred Gregg on to really focus his efforts to drop the weight, starting with writing down a daily food diary to keep track of his calorie intake.
He also started going to the gym, doing kickboxing and zumba, and soon saw the weight begin to drop off.
His fledgling film and TV career has seen him appear as an extra in hit American TV shows Law and Order SVU and Blue Bloods, and he is in The Amazing Spiderman 2 alongside Andrew Garfield and Jamie Foxx.
He added: "I want to help people learn that obesity is much more of an internal issue where the weight is the external symptom.
"I've helped 2 of my personal friends lose over 90 pounds each and helping another with his journey as it just started."
