Jamie Oliver, 46, is a TV chef who has been through a weight loss transformation in recent years. But how did the chef manage to drop two stone?
But apart from cutting down on his meat intake, the chef focused on eating healthy.
When he opted for healthier foods and started cooking healthier meals, the chef saw an instant transformation.
“I lost 12 kilos quite quickly and I didn’t do it through not eating.
“I ate a lot, more than I was used to,” Jamie explained.
However, his secret was swapping large servings of meat for more vegetables.
Jamie also shared his favourite snack to stay in shape: nuts.
“They make you half as likely to have a heart attack. Feed them to your kids as well,” he recommended.
Jamie also decided to make other lifestyle changes, such as cutting back on booze and getting more sleep.
“Your average Brit drinks booze. I’m not telling you what to do, but my rhythm now is only to drink at the weekend.
“It’s about a consciousness and knowing you’re doing something and being more mindful.”
Jamie also shared one food which helped him speed up weight loss: seaweed.
“I thought seaweed was hippy, globetrotting stuff but our ancestors ate seaweed. It has got a load of iodine and is the most nutritious vegetable in the world,” he explained
The celebrity chef decided to slim down after realising how unhealthy his life was.
“I realised I hadn’t spent much time looking after myself.
“I went back to school and started studying nutrition, started travelling to parts of the world to where people live the longest lives and started looking at their lifestyles.
“That was the journey and it’s been amazing,” he explained on Loose Women.
