The celebrity chef just revealed his secret to losing 26 pounds and of course it had to do with his diet, but it’s probably not what you’re thinking. “I didn’t do it by not eating,” he told the Radio Times. I ate a lot, more than I was used to. “
Some of Oliver’s practical tips? “I pushed meat down, pushed vegetables up, slept more and got more exercise,” he said.
The 46-year-old also revealed the surprising new vegetables he’s added to his meals. “I thought seaweed was hip, global, but our ancestors ate seaweed,” he said. “It’s high in iodine and the most nutritious vegetable in the world.” Oliver also nibbled on nuts and reduced his alcohol consumption. He explained, “I’m not telling you what to do, but my rhythm now is to only drink on weekends.”
