Masterchef’s Gregg Wallace maintains weight loss by eating chocolate

Masterchef host Gregg Wallace worked hard to lose weight but that doesn’t mean he’s depriving himself of a sweet treat or two.

The 55-year-old vowed to shed some pounds back in 2017 after weighing 16 stone. At the time, the TV star revealed he’d given up particular vices like alcohol and fry-ups before unveiling the true extent of his weight loss with a topless selfie last year.

And it earned him a host of new admirers in the process.

Gregg’s now revealed how he’s maintaining the weight loss and his diet might surprise some.

‘I might have a chocolate bar on the go for energy. I always eat breakfast as I’ve just come out of gym and I’m ravenous for protein,’ he revealed to Radio Times.

‘I have boiled eggs, brown bread with chicken sausages or smoked fish on Ryvita with horseradish.’

Doesn’t sound too bad of a diet so far.

However, he did admit: ‘I used to eat dinner after a filming day. Not now.’

It might work for Gregg but we definitely need our three meals a day.

Of course, Gregg isn’t just shredding in the kitchen as he’s a frequent gym-goer.

Sharing a glimpse into his workout regime, the TV star revealed: ‘I try to be as fit as possible, so I do a lot of exercise every day. Cardio, weights, uphill walking. I am just over 12 stone, and I have less than 18 per cent fat. I’m trying to reduce that to 15 per cent.

Gregg, who was once a Weight Watchers ambassador, also revealed that he’s stopped going to dinner parties.

The BBC star – who is father to three children Tom, 26, Libby, 24, and nine-month-old son Sid – previously disclosed that he has to watch what he eats after he was diagnosed with diverticulitis last year, a digestive condition which affects the large intestine and causes inflammation, leading to abdominal pain.

But, despite warnings from doctors over his diet, he confessed he often ‘forgets’ and eats whatever he wants.

‘When they’re irritated, you’ve got to watch alcohol and spicy food,’ he previously told the Mirror.

‘We were eating chilis yesterday. Before that I had a massive skinful of beer in Dublin –and it was already playing up.

‘I forgot, because I’d been so well. But yesterday I was ill. I’m turning into one of those old people who has things wrong with them.’
