Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay is opening up about his weight loss transformation!
Ramsay revealed that he lost 50 lbs. after getting a “a big wake-up call” from his wife Tana, who advised him to take better care of himself.
He told The Times, “Tana was not impressed with the way I was. I was overweight, 18 stone [252 lbs]. I looked like a sack of s—. I look at the pictures and think, ‘How did Tana stay around?’ Because Tana has got better-looking and more gorgeous. And there she is, getting in bed with a fat f**k.”
“I didn’t have a figure. I didn’t feel that good,” Gordon elaborated. “It was painful. I used to look at myself in the mirror and think, ‘Holy sh*t!’"
In fear of losing her, the 51-year-old changed his diet. He shared, “No milk. Just because it’s sluggish. Almond milk with Weetabix for breakfast. Smoothie with frozen berries, yogurts. Dropping milk and cheese has made a massive difference.”
As for when he decided to make a conscious effort to be healthier, Gordon revealed, “I started focusing on getting super fit five or six years ago when my life got super busy. You get consumed by the work. You get sucked up. You get drawn in. All of a sudden your ‘me time’ is zero. There was no breathing space, no down time, no time to even think straight. It all started hitting me hard. I didn’t panic, but my head was not in the game.”
Gordon and Tana have been married for 21 years and have four kids.
