CHEF James Martin has managed to shed six stone over the last few years despite a career that means he's constantly surrounded by food.

The TV cook known for giving us delicious recipes on Saturday Morning on ITV, has slimmed down dramatically after staring on Strictly back in 2005 - but how did he do it?


The 47-year-old has gone through a body transformation recently and has lost an impressive six stone.

James admitted he starting to drop the pounds when he was on Strictly Come Dancing in 2005.

When the chef took part in the show with dance partner Camilla Dallerup, he reportedly lost a stone in just a week.

By the time he was voted off, he'd lost a whopping five stone.

He then went on to drop a further stone after becoming self-conscious after watching himself on a high-definition screen.

James also was the victim of online trolling and was mocked for being "fat".


The chef first starting shaping up during his intense Strictly training.

James weighed 19st 7lb and managed to dance off five stone with the tough exercise regime.

This then made him more aware of his lifestyle and stayed motivated to stay fit and healthy following the show.

Being in the public eye, pressures from comments on social media and seeing himself on the TV led to him losing more weight.

He apparently made changes to his diet to help stay slim, including cutting out butter and cutting back on fatty foods.

The chef also makes sure he stays active to keep the weight off.


James told the Daily Mail: "I just think it's a lifestyle thing and also looking at yourself on TV...

"You get critical of yourself. You kind of watch and go, 'Oh God there's a bit of a chin happening there'.

"And everybody's TVs are bigger now. Before you used to watch TV on a small one and now they're massive."

The Saturday Morning chef said he has to be strict with himself, especially when he goes on tour.

He opened up about his weight during an interview on Loose Women - when asked whether his mum was critical of his looks when she watched him on TV, he replied: "100 per cent, hence I'm wearing a jacket!

"Weight is quite a big issue.

Now she's got a big TV. It never used to be a problem when she had a little TV. It's all relative. HD is horrific.

I've never been a little lad. That's the way I am."
