James Martin weight loss: TV chef lost five stone by ditching fat from his diet


James Martin, 48, is best known for his television work with the BBC and ITV. He presented Saturday Kitchen for 10 years and now has many of his own cookery shows. He has lost a staggering amount of weight over recent years but how did he do it?

“You have to understand food and I am seriously passionate about ingredients.”

Butter is high in saturated fat which can lead to bad cholesterol according to Healthline.

Eating too much of the fat can lead to weight gain, especially if added to a lot of food.

The chef reportedly cut down on butter and foods high in fat to help him to lose the weight.

Another commented: “Well done on all that hard work… and 14 kilos!”

“Looking good Mr Martin. Very trim,” a third added.

James Martin’s weight loss was first noticed back in 2005 when he performed on Strictly Come Dancing with his partner Camilla Dallerup.

As well as eating a balanced diet, adding exercise into a regime can help speed up the results.

The show is known for long intense training days.

Dancing is one of the best forms of cardio exercise, with it burning up to 400 calories in just one hour.
