See what happens when you stop eating 45-pound hamburgers?

Adam Richman From Man Vs. Food Fame Loses 70 Pounds, Poses Nude

Looks like cutting out competitive eating can really do good for your waistline! If you’ll recall Adam Richman from The Travel Channel show, Man vs. Food, he spent years eating over-sized pizzas, toddler-weight hamburgers, and wings so hot you had to sign a waiver before consuming. After quitting the show he has lost over 70 pounds. Via Mailonline:

Former Man V. Food host Adam Richman is celebrating is 70lb weight loss with a naked spread in Cosmopolitan UK’s July issue.

Mr. Richman managed to shave the 70lbs from his body in a mere 10 months. He told the magazine: ‘To go from hating the way I looked to being a Cosmo centerfold is a profound honor’

When his show, which gave viewers an inside look at the competitive eating industry, ended in 2012 following a four-year run, Mr Richman was left with a 40-inch waistline and what he described to People magazine in September as a ‘doughy face.’

Mr. Richman was motivated to change his lifestyle, which on shoots involved eating 190lb hamburgers and two-gallon sundaes, due to concerns over his health as well as a nonexistent sex life.

He retired from the popular show in order to focus on eating better and exercising.

He cut out white flour and dairy from his diet and stocked his kitchen cupboards with healthy snacks.

‘I love peanut butter and ice cream but I can’t keep them in my house,’ he explained.

Throughout the day he eats small 150-calorie meals every two hours and some of his favorite go-to diet foods include almonds, Greek yogurt, salmon and meal replacement bars.

Mr. Richman told People in September that the tipping point came when he caught sight of himself in the mirror one day and his body appeared to be ‘the size of a Smart car’.

Man Vs. Food….man wins! Good for him.
