Graham Elliot's recent remarkable weight loss may have motivated his admirers to make positive changes, but many are curious about how it happened. The American chef, restaurateur, and reality TV celebrity reportedly shed a significant 150 pounds in a short period of time.

Chef Graham Elliot Bowles grew up in Seattle. Cooking programs like Iron Chef and Top Chef Master helped him gain popularity. Elliot shot to fame when he was appointed as a judge on MasterChef and MasterChef Junior.

Graham Elliot claimed that despite leading a prosperous and seemingly ideal life, he was in danger of developing major health problems. Long ago, Elliot took the first step toward living a healthy life, but little changed. The chef claimed he was afraid for his life and believed that if he could reduce his weight, he would live to watch his sons grow. Here's a look at Graham's weight loss journey.


How Did Graham Elliot Lose Weight?

Ordinary individuals need years to lose a lot of weight, but Graham managed it in just a few years' time. In order to lose unmanageable weight, the Master Chef underwent a sleeve gastrectomy. Elliot used to weigh 400 lbs. before the operation.

The star chef realized that weight loss was not a one-size-fits-all proposition. Elliot understood that in order to ensure a satisfactory surgical outcome, he would need to make some significant lifestyle changes. He exercised vigorously and adhered to a rigorous eating regimen in an effort to shed the pounds.

Graham's perspective on eating significantly changed as a result of his weight loss. He now views food as fuel and concentrates on getting enough protein. He has developed a strong preference for healthy, natural foods and doesn't fuss over eating much.

To avoid putting the weight back on, the celebrity relies on portion management. His dietary habits have also altered significantly as a result of his emphasis on consuming more fruits, vegetables, and lean protein.

He typically eats chicken and salmon for dinner along with veggies and salad. He has stopped eating meals high in carbohydrates, including beer, bread, spaghetti, and sugary soft beverages. He loves fruit, apple slices with peanut butter, and cottage cheese as snacks.


Wrapping Up

Graham Elliot recalls his son telling his buddies that his father was the quickest runner and cites it as a wonderful feeling. Graham currently carries around 253 pounds. However, the chef claims that his weight loss struggle didn't end after the surgery. After the procedure, he struggled to maintain the weight loss.

Previously, Elliot used to focus on eating sweets and cookies to combat stress, but now he prefers nourishing cuisine. By telling himself he can either indulge in a sweet and feel horrible about it for a while, or order something light and delectable like sashimi that will not harm his health, he has taught himself to control his urges.

Graham Elliot anticipated that within the first year after the operation, he would lose between 60 and 70 pounds. However, he is happy to shed more weight than he had anticipated. His weight loss is making him healthier, as evidenced by the fact that he finished the Chicago marathon.
