Paul Hollywood weight loss: Great British Bake Off star shed pounds by cutting one thing
Fans will recognise Paul Hollywood for being a judge on The Great British Bake Off, which he’s worked on since it launched on the BBC in 2010. Following its move from to Channel 4 in 2017, Paul now works alongside restaurateur Prue Leith. Recently, the TV judge has attracted attention for his slimmer physique, which he achieved after making a lifestyle change. So what did he do? Paul revealed that he managed to lose weight after cutting one thing from his diet.
The 54-year-old decided to ditch booze and go teetotal, and as a result noticed the weight start to fall off.
Speaking in an interview with The Sun, he revealed: “I don’t have to go out now, I just drink water all day. I promise. It’s helped shift a few pounds too.”
As well as cutting out alcohol, Paul also transformed his diet and upped his fitness regime.
“I’m on a healthy eating spurt right now. I’m not thin but I’m on my way there,” he told The Daily Mail.
He contineud: “It’s not a diet. I’m just reducing my calorie intake and I’m seeing a personal trainer and boxing and weightlifting about three times a week.”
Although he managed to slim down, Paul insisted that he isn’t concerned with losing weight, but rather with maintaining his health.
He added: “It’s not so much about losing the weight as being healthy.”
The 48-year-old made a conscious decision to stop drinking alcohol as she had been suffering with bad skin – something a medical professional advised could be diet related.
Speaking in a recent interview with Prima Magazine, she said: “I’ve lost a stone-and-a-half and I feel fantastic.”
Discussing her decision to lose weight, she said: “This time last year, I went to the doctor with a skin problem and he told me I could do with losing some weight.
“It turned out I was at the upper end of my BMI and, I have to admit, I’d been feeling a little heavy for a while.”
From providing empty calories to increasing belly fat, alcohol can affect the body in many ways.
Excess alcohol can lead to what is known as alcoholic fatty liver. This condition can damage the liver, affecting the way the body metabolises and store carbohydrates and fats.
