Gregg Wallace weight loss secrets
Cut out these foods
In the past Gregg told The Sun he cut out various unhealthy foods, including fried food and sugar.
He also stopped drinking alcohol, including his favourite – beer.
Eat healthy versions of favourite meals
He told the paper he learned to make his favourite recipes in a healthier manner.
The chef said: “Don’t cut out things you like – it will just make you miserable.
“I’m a huge fan of curries, chillies and stews and it is still possible to lose weight and eat hearty meals.
“Think about cooking with meats such as chicken and pork — all the things that don’t have much fat.
“Use lean mince to make chillies, fill up with tasty stews stuffed full of healthy, low-calorie veg.”
Exercise is also a key part of Gregg’s new lifestyle, he revealed, claiming he goes to the gym most mornings.
He squats 130kg and can bench-press 105kg.
Gregg’s co-presenter John Torode’s weight loss has impressed many, too.
He said he lost three stone, and breakfast was a key part of his diet plan overhaul.
“I feel brilliant, actually. It happened nearly 18 months ago now.
“It’s about three stone and I feel great for it. I cycle everywhere, I eat different.
“The big secret, which somebody told me is the thing that all people who are very, very overweight have in common, is that they don’t eat breakfast.
“I now eat breakfast and make the point of sitting down with my children, eating breakfast and starting the day well.”
