Gordon Ramsay has revealed the secret behind his impressive three stone weight loss – by eating more.
The 53-year-old has caught the attention of many fans after his amazing 3st 8lb weight loss.
The celebrity chef wowed fans last month when he showed off his toned torso in a Baywatch-style snap with sons Jack, 20, and baby Oscar.
And it seems the dad-of-five could owe a reported near four stone weight loss – down from a reported 19st 4lbs – to eating more meals a day.
The sweary TV personality told US morning programme The Today Show his secret to dropping the pounds came with eating on a more regular basis – but taking in smaller amounts.
He said: “I’m very good now at eating five times a day, but small amounts as opposed to big breakfast, big lunch and big dinner.
“There’s nothing worse than eating dinner at 5.30 and then having to get up and cook for three hours.”
Gordon explained how eating small and regular meals helped him to control his routine and start to slim down.
The chef added: “I like to keep on my toes and eat small bits. Almost like in Hong Kong – four or five times a day, small bowls of food.”
Apparently the dad was inspired to lose weight with the help of his wife Tana as she was “not impressed” with the way he was.
The slimmed down Kitchen Nightmares and The F-Word host previously told The Times: “Tana was not impressed with the way I was.
“I was overweight, 18 stone. 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***.”
As a result, he managed to slim down from 19st 4lbs to a much healthier 15st 10lbs for his frame.
Going on beach holidays with famous friends David and Victoria Beckham also made Gordon feel more self-conscious.
He claimed: “I didn’t have a figure. I didn’t feel that good.”
Aside from keeping the romance alive, he also revealed that his other motivation for prioritising his health was because his father died from a heart attack at the age of 53, and he wanted to be around for Megan, 19, twins Holly and Jack, both 18 and Tilly, 16.
He explained: “It was painful. I used to look at myself in the mirror and think, ‘Holy s***!’ So it was a big wake-up call.”
