According to celebrity chef and restaurateur, Jamie Oliver, he lost weight because he removed meat from his diet.
The 44-year-old said he’s been swapping meals with meat for vegetarian ones.
He noted that he reduced his meat consumption, upped his veggie consumption, improved his sleep, and got more physically active.
Oliver also added that he lost around 30 pounds by eating more, but making sure all of his meals are nutritious.
He lost the first pounds very easy and it was through eating as he ate more than he used to do before.

He reduced his alcohol consumption and exercises on a regular basis. He claims that he now only drinks for the weekends.
