Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsey is known for being blunt, but in a recent interview he's opened up some of the things that inspired him to shed some weight.
So far on his weightloss journey Gordon has lost 22kgs! In an interview with Today, he noted that the loss of his father has had a big impact on him...
"My father passed of a heart attack at 53. That man never ever ate in my restaurant, and it pains me today to think that.”
Determined to not meet the same fate as his father, Gordon hit the gym. His wife also shared how she helped him on his path...
"Gordon's famous for being blunt." she said.
"I just gave him a little bit of his own medicine and basically suggested that he was getting a little wide around his middle."
She added that the phrase "Little pickers wear bigger knickers" was the key to motivating Gordon.
"I'm very good now at eating five times a day, but small amounts as opposed to a big breakfast, big lunch... and a big dinner," Gordon continued.
"So it's about sort of eating better, but eating less at the same time."
