Adam Woodyatt, 52, has opened up about his weight loss journey over the years. After taking a break from the television screens, Adam looks slimmer than ever in recent social media snaps. How did he lose weight?
“Roads and cycle paths were quiet so it was really enjoyable.”
Cycling is an excellent cardio workout and as well as weight loss, it can also improve lung and heart health.
It also minimises strength on joints, offering a great form of cardio workout.
Exercising also helps slimmers boost their metabolism, meaning more calories are burnt throughout the day.
In October, Adam explained that he was doing everything he could to improve his fitness levels by racing Paul Chuckle during a trip to Scarborough.
In a shot video he posted on Instagram, he said: “Chuckle took the tram and I ran up the steps. There was a few of them.”
As well as exercising, eating a healthy, balanced diet is also a huge part of a weight loss journey.
Making several appearances over the years, Adam appeared on BBC’s The One Show with his son Sam shortly before running the marathon.
Sam gave an insight into what his father has been eating in order to help slim down.
He explained: “He’s on a no-carb diet and I’m telling him, ‘You need to start carb-loading a couple of days before’.”
A low-carbohydrate diet can help reduce insulin levels which results in weight loss.
Running may become easier for those who have a lower body fat percentage as their stamina is likely to be higher, meaning they can run for a longer time.
The NHS website recommends keeping a small amount of carbohydrates in your diet, although it may be suitable for the intake to be reduced if weight loss is your goal.
The website reads: “Try to limit the amount of sugary foods you eat and instead include healthier sources of carbohydrate in your diet, such as wholegrains, potatoes, vegetables, fruit, and legumes.”
