In recent years, Gregg Wallace has transformed his figure and has managed to trim down to reveal his incredible three stone weight loss and has credited his new lean physique to a simple change in his diet.
Gregg previously revealed that his start weight was around 16 and a half stone at his most heaviest, but over the last few years he has managed to trim down by a whole three stone thanks to a combination of cutting down on fatty, sugary foods and “retraining his tastebuds” in order to enjoy healthier meals.
Speaking to The Sun back in 2017, Wallace revealed that he upturned his diet, saying that he’d gradually reduced his intake of takeaways and alcohol, and had turned to homemade versions of his favourite treats instead.
“I reduced the booze, I’ve had to give up fry ups and I exercise more,” he revealed at the time.
He confessed that at his heaviest weight he would consume takeaways regularly, which is what contributed to his steady weight gain.

He said: “When I was at my biggest I was having a daily fry-up, fish and chips once per week, takeaway a couple more times and drinking beer nearly every day.”
But since overhauling his diet he has started to make his own takeaways with healthier alternatives.
“I’m a huge fan of curries, chillies and stews and it is still possible to lose weight and eat hearty meals,” he explained.
“Think about cooking with meats such as chicken and pork,” he advised.
“All the things that don’t have much fat,” he added.
“Use lean mince to make chillies, fill up with tasty stews stuffed full of healthy, low-calorie veg.”
However, in addition to overhauling his diet, Wallace has also been upping his exercise regime.
Gregg often shares with his 46,600 Instagram followers his day-to-day activities, including documenting his country walks with his son Sid.
