Nigella Lawson weight loss: TV chef slimmed down with this diet trick – what did she do?
Nigella Lawson is a TV chef who has hosted her own cooking shows including Nigella Bites, Nigella’s Christmas Kitchen and Simply Nigella. She has had an impressive career and written a number of cook books including How to Eat, How to Be a Domestic Goddess and Simply Nigella: Feel Good Food. In recent years, Nigella turned heads after a noticeable transformation and opened up about how she slimmed down. However, it was not a just a diet and fitness plan which helped her kick start the weight loss journey.
The chef revealed the pounds first started to fall off unintentionally after she had a double bunionisation.
In 2015, she told the Telegraph: “I couldn’t walk to the fridge afterwards and, actually, it’s quite a good diet.
“Not because I stopped eating but because you can say to someone, ‘Can you get me a slice of cake?’ but it’s kind of embarrassing to say, ‘And now could you get me a second slice?”
However, she has managed to stay trim with the help of a healthy lifestyle and credited a balance lifestyle for her tone figure.
Nigella explained she has a love of healthy foods and enjoys eating things such as kale and avocados.
Speaking to Good Housekeeping, she said: “Life is about balance, it’s not about being smug. You don’t eat things because you think they’re good for you.”
The chef explained she has focused on eating foods she enjoys more than stressing over nutritional value.
She added: “It’s certainly true my weight went up – that happens in life sometimes.
“I wouldn’t want a life where I lived on chia seed pudding, just as I wouldn’t want to live where I lived on eggs Benedict or steak and chips.”
On top of following a balanced diet plan, the food writer has used regular exercise to help her stay in shape.
Nigella said: “I do yoga three times a week. I have to do something I enjoy, otherwise I wouldn’t do it.”
