John Torode is an Australian chef who regularly appears on TV to give his cooking tips. During his career, the chef has worked as a judge on Masterchef and is currently on screens on John and Lisa’s Weekend Kitchen. He once had a much larger frame, but managed to slim down by an impressive three stone. By adding an extra meal to his day, John noticed his waist line shrink.
What did he do?
John revealed changing his diet and exercising more helped him slim down.
In 2010, he opened up on Good Morning Britain to explain how eating breakfast helped him get control of his waistline.
He told the presenters: “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.”
The chef went on to explain exercising more had helped him trim down.
“I feel brilliant, actually,” he explained, “It’s about three stone and I feel great for it. I cycle everywhere, I eat different.”
This is a hobby he seems to have kept up and he regularly posts snaps online of him keeping fit on his bike.
In a recent Instagram post, he wrote: “Bit of a sweat on… loved my ride.”
When appearing on shows such as This Morning and Saturday Kitchen, he focuses on giving healthy recipes.
Another chef, Tom Kerridge, opened up about the plan he followed to lose a whopping 12st.
Previously weighing in at 30st, the TV chef began by cutting out alcohol to help him slim down.
Tom also used the low-carb dopamine diet which requires slimmers to eat food high in protein.
Saturday Kitchen’s James Martin dropped six stone by following an intensive training routine on Strictly Come Dancing.
After losing five stone through this, James decided to make some changes in his diet to help him lose another stone.
When changing his diet, he cut out fatty butter and tried to limit other foods which were high in fat.
