The long journey of the “Iron Gully”
Today the appraiser feels comfortable looking at his own skin. But that was a long way off because Colmond once wore 11XL size shirts.
This was followed in 2009 by an attempt to lose weight with the documentary soap “Iron Gully”. At that time he reached his goal and lost 30 kg.

Suddenly I gained 40 to 45 kg. I got boiled,” he told the press.Severe“.
In early 2020, Colmond sought the most drastic measures: he underwent gastric surgery and finally it worked with standard weight loss. However, as he emphasizes in the “Built” interview, he is still old-fashioned: “I live a very healthy life, I move a lot, my values are above. Of course, I still like tasty food,” says Colmond.
