James Martin rocketed to fame in the early 2000s when he first appeared on TV, but his appearance has changed since. In total, the chef lost a whopping five stone in just two months. He shared how he did it by focusing on his diet and exercise uptake.
James first lost weight more than a decade ago, but he has managed to maintain his ideal weight and figure by following a healthy diet and doing regular exercise.
He has revealed how he reduced his intake of some ingredients and avoided some foods altogether.
The chef still eats a balanced diet now to keep the weight off.
As for exercise, James often posts pictures of his dog on Instagram, sharing how he takes him for walks in the fields that surround his house.
Although James could not sustain his arduous fitness regime, he did begin to follow a healthier diet when he left Strictly.
He reportedly cut back on fats and alcohol.
“It’s hard work because I’m a big bloke,” James told Mail Online.
“I’ve really got to watch what I eat and drink, and make sure I exercise regularly.”
When speaking to Mail Online, he added: “I just think it’s a lifestyle thing and also looking at yourself on TV.
“Before you used to watch TV on a small one and now they’re massive.”
Posting a photo of himself last week on social media, James received many comments from fans saying how great he looked.
