Mario Batali: Weight Loss of 40 Pounds

by Betsy on Celebs on January 20, 2010

The chubby celebrity chef Mario Batali has lost 45 pounds. The 49-year-old who is normally serving up celebrity meals to Julianne Moore, Gwyneth Paltrow and Martha Stewart is taking up portion control to drop the weight. He told People magazine,

“I was up to about 280 lbs. last year and now I’m down to about 235 lbs. I’m working on it to get down to 200 lbs. I feel good all the time, that’s my problem. So even at 280, I didn’t feel tired or sluggish. I always have energy. I wake up, I feel good, I’m exercising.”

Batali said he decided to lose the weight when he saw a picture of himself and knew it was time to implement some light exercise and portion control in order to look better and have a longer life with his family. He said,

“It’s really about calorie intake and calorie outtake. You just have to eat enough to get you to the next meal, not every time you see a restaurant or see a plate do you have to eat.”

Batali has ditched breakfast and he’ll have an espresso in the late morning and he tries to stick to vegetables and salads through out the day. In the evening if he’s at a restaurant he’ll eat half portions and if eating at home for dinner he’ll focus on protein, salad and vegetables.
