It was the body transformation that spawned worldwide cuss-words of disbelief: Gordon Ramsay, the famously foul-mouthed chef, recently shed about 60 pounds to get his marriage — and his health — back on track. And, may we say: The dude looks effing amazing. So, we have to know: What, exactly, did the culinary pro do to get so svelte?
The answer puts Ramsay in a league with our favorite clean-eating Kardashian sister, Kourtney. And that answer is — sorry to say — to swear off eating delicious things like ice cream and cheese.
The Daily Mail cites the chef opening up about his new diet plan saying, "[I eat] no milk. Just because it's sluggish. Almond milk with Weetabix for breakfast. Smoothie with frozen berries, yogurts. Dropping milk and cheese has made a massive difference." And, for the record, that's advice that Ramsay came by himself, through a process of trial and error.
"I haven't got a dietician, my a--!," the fiery chef told reporters. "Do you know what my dietician is? Standing stark... naked on the scales every day. That's my dietician right there." (That's probably for the better: How high of a salary would you need to try to tell Ramsay to put down the gouda?)
By the way — Natalie Portman is another fan of dairy-free life, but not for the weight-loss reason: She claims it comes with a different amazing beauty benefit.
The chef's new eating regime also includes drinking two glasses of water before any meal, and eating Indian-inspired fish curry, as well as pizza with a cauliflower base. (And topped, we can only assume, with NO pineapple.) Sounds pretty f---ing good to us!
