Instead of crash diets or keto, Gregg Wallace still eats as much as he likes, just at certain times.

He doesn’t snack in between meals, and he can still eat whatever he likes – though stays away from crisps and biscuits, and takeaways are a rare treat.

But instead of sticking things in the oven and opting for ultra-processed food, he cooks from scratch with wife Anna, and claims he has lost all that weight without ever having to feel hungry.

He said ‘There’d be fry-ups with friends, fish and chips for lunch and a curry or Chinese takeaway at night on days when I wasn’t filming [MasterChef],’ he told the Daily Mail.

He tried ‘eating less…not having lunch…not eating carbs… I was just always hungry and frustrated.’

But he and his wife Anna, who is of Italian heritage, began cooking lean fish and meat at home, and he realised ‘I could eat massive portions that were much lower in calories than my usual meals.’

‘I wasn’t left hungry and the weight just dropped off.’
