Paul Hollywood weight loss: Bake Off judge used this trick to slim – what did he do?
Paul Hollywood is currently a judge on the cooking show, The Great British Bake Off, which he has appeared on for nearly ten years. Kicking off his career as a teen in his dad’s bakery, Paul has since worked as the head baker in a number of hotels. Although he samples cakes and pastries for a living, the successful chef has managed to slim down in recent years. He explained cutting back on alcohol and exercising regularly helped him get into shape.
Opening up about his transformation, Paul explained his weight loss journey began with plans to improve his health and shed two stone.
He opened up about how cutting back on alcohol and increasing his water intake helped him slim.
Speaking to The Sun, Paul explained: “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 replacing alcohol with water, he changed his lifestyle by adding in exercise and trying to cut back on calories.
Paul revealed how getting the help of a personal trainer encouraged him shake up his diet and fitness routine.
In 2016, he told the MailOnline: “I’m on a healthy eating spurt right now. I’m not thin but I’m on my way there.
“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.”
He previously spoke out to say he mixed boxing three times a week with weight training to stay fit.
However, the baker explained he did not completely cut out treats when changing his routine.
“I don’t like people who say you shouldn’t eat cake or bread if you want to lose weight,” he added.
