Adam Richman is famous for one thing; eating a LOT of food. His big break came with the hosting gig of “Man vs. Food” on the Travel Channel.
The premise of the show involved Richman traveling across the U.S. and trying to vanquish eating challenges from different restaurants.
The result not surprisingly was massive weight gain.
By the time the show had wrapped up its run in 2012, he was the heaviest he had ever been.
Going to a doctor soon after, he was shocked when he got on the scale (he will not share the number).
This was the turning point.
Richman began eating smaller meals and embracing exercise.
More specifically, he began to cut out starches and eating multiple small meals per day.
Favorite foods included vegetables and yogurt. He drank only water and usually a gallon a day.
He eventually became a vegan and the weight began to drop off.
His exercise routine was a little different. He incorporated sprints and squats along with soccer for up to 90 minutes a day at least 5 days a week.
Richman eventually dropped 70 pounds with his new lifestyle and has managed to keep it off so far.
He is a true success story.
