Flintoff continued, "I've thrown up in cricket grounds around the world, in restaurants, all sorts, and I lost about 15kg by doing that. It's not the right way to go, which I am very aware of. You start off doing it if you have a bad meal, you eat something you don't think you should have eaten or you have drunk too much. Then before you know it, even good meals you are getting rid of. It becomes a real habit. The only way really to lose weight is to train more and eat less, eat the right things."
