Mark Benton’s Weight Loss Journey
In his new interview, Mark shared that he lost weight by changing his diet and dancing. “I realized that I had put up on a lot of weight, which wasn’t clearly good for my health,” Mark said. “I wanted to lose all those extra pounds. I wanted to change myself and my wife helped me in that.”
Talking about his diet, Benton said, “I’m a vegetarian, so it’s quite easy for me to stay lean and fit. But I eat more fruits and vegetables than ever before. Now that I’m teaching (dance) classes, I’ve had to cut out the beer and bacon sandwiches during my lunch hour. Even though they tasted great!”
Changing his diet plan certainly helped Benton in losing weight but what helped him, even more, was his teaching dance classes. For those of you who don’t know, Mark started teaching jazz and ballot dancing classes after losing extra pounds.
It not only helped him in maintaining his health but also resulted in losing more weight. Just like his wife, Sarah Benton helped Mark in changing his diet, she also convinced him for teaching dance to young ladies. “My wife said to me, ‘you’ve lost all this weight, you’re looking great, why don’t you go and teach a dance class?’ I thought she was joking,” Mark said.
Mark Teaching Dancing Classes
Mark started teaching classes a year ago and his students are only growing. Talking about which, he said, “I actually started to teach dance not long ago. I do jazz and ballet. I’ve been converting all the local ladies into ballroom dancers.”
He is not only a very good dancer but a good teacher as well and has proved his worth. Losing weight while dancing is very fun. Not only you don’t feel like it’s work but it is also a kind of relaxation from today’s busy life.
Before & After Weight Loss
“By dancing and dieting I have lost 3 stone (42 pounds),” Benton said. “And I am feeling very healthy now.” He went from 192 pounds to 150 pounds. Mark said that he is at the healthiest weight of his life, “which is where I was when I was working in London as an actor 20 years ago.”
