Gordon Ramsay, 51, is a British celebrity chef, television star and restauranteur.

He rose to fame due to his fiery temper and foul use of language, appearing on television shows such as Hell’s Kitchen, The F Word and Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmare.

He is currently appearing on a new TV show, Gordon, Gino and Fred: Road Trip.

During his career, Gordon has battled with his weight, but recently lost a staggering 50 pounds (3.6 stone).

The celebrity chef once weighed a heavy 270 pounds (19 stone) at his heaviest.

Earlier in the year, he revealed the reasons behind his weight loss, telling the Daily Mail: “Tana was not impressed with the way I was.”

“I was overweight, 18 stone. I looked like a sack of s***. I look at the pictures and think, 'How did Tana stay around?'

“Because Tana has got better-looking and more gorgeous. And there she is, getting in bed with a fat f***.’”

Gordon began his body transformation, revealing to the public that he actually started eating more times - but in much smaller portions.

“I’m very good now at eating five times a day, but small amounts as opposed to a big breakfast, big lunch and big dinner,” he said on The Today Show.

The chef revealed more of his weight-loss secrets on a Reddit “Ask Me Anything” thread.

For breakfast the 51-year-old eats porridge, stating that it sets him up “for the rest of the day”.

He also explained that he goes on to eat “small bowls” during the day rather than a sit-down lunch or dinner.

He said: “So I don't really sit down and do lunch. I certainly don't sit down and eat dinner.”

“There's nothing worse than eating dinner at 5:30 and then having to get up and cook for three hours.”

Along with eating porridge, there is another thing that can be done at breakfast time to help with weight loss. 

In fact, doing one thing even before breakfast is eaten can help promote fat burning.

Cutting up a few slices of grapefruit and putting it into warm water can help kickstart fat burning.

If drunk before eating breakfast it can help cleanse the body, experts have said.

“Grapefruit or lemon in warm water is good before breakfast to help cleanse and kick-start the lymphatic system,” nutritionist Rick Hay told Marie Claire.
