Weight loss journey

Last month, Gregg opened up to Entertainment Daily! about his incredible weight loss.

He revealed his cholesterol battle is still ongoing after doctors warned him to reduce his levels or else he was set for a heart attack in 2013.

Gregg explained: “It was scary. My GP called me up and said look we need to do something about this before you have a massive heart attack.

“That’s what’s going to happen unless you change straight away.”

He was then prescribed medication which lowered his cholesterol levels so he didn’t bother trying to lose weight.

“I took the tablets and the cholesterol went down straight away,” he added.

“But the doctors said to me, ‘Look, it’s come down rapidly from where it was but that doesn’t mean you’re in a safe place.

“To be in a safe place, we need to seriously address everything.”

Since then, Gregg has lost four stone, reduced his cholesterol and gained a six pack.

His body overhaul prompted him to create his own fitness programme, ShowMe.Fit with Gregg Wallace.

Family man

Gregg became a father for the third time last year after welcoming his son Sid with wife Anna – who is 21 years his junior.
