It was a long way to a slimmer body for Tom who had spent his life cooking and tasting all the exquisite dishes that he was popularized for. After the foodie lifestyle since a tender age, the chef had gained himself a total of 420 pounds that made him question his own weight problem later at the age of 40.
After an irksome journey of losing 252 pounds, Tom Kerridge now stands slimmer than ever before. With everybody dazed with his current transformation, Tom has been getting heaps of questions related to his weight loss.
So, the chef chose to reveal his secret of massive weight loss in the Sunday Times. According to him, all he did were three things back to back, cutting on booze, lesser carbs and burning all the food he ate.
The chef realized that the more alcohol that got into his system, the more hindrances it brought out to his metabolism. The 44-year-old also cut short on carbs.
He reported to the Sunday Time saying that:
“Carbs are a big thing. The more you understand it and the more you look into it, you see that there are so many carbohydrates involved in sugar as well.”
Everything he ate, got under his ‘Dopamine Diet’ where he was producing his happy hormones by eating much healthier food than what he used to eat before.

Along with his own diet schedules, Tom was sticking up to his rigorous swimming routine where he burned the maximum calories. The Top of the Shop with Tom Kerridge star spoke to the Telegram reporting that:
“My alarm wakes me up at 6.15am every morning and I go to the swimming pool at a hotel up the road. On a busy day I swim a kilometer; on a relaxed one I’ll do a mile.”
Switching to veggies and nuts and hitting the gym, Tom has succeeded in losing 252 pounds in total. His wife Beth calls him a “Gym Bunny” as the chef has started gaining more muscles by every passing day!

In 1997, Tom Kerridge first met his sculptor-wife Beth Cullen-Kerridge in a club in North London. Her first words to Tom were:
"Will you give me £3 for the stripper, please?"
Looking at a blonde lady who has given him such a sentence, Tom couldn’t stop thinking how cool the lady was.
After three days, Beth also knew that Tom is indeed the one for her. So the co-owner of the Hand & Flowers bent her knees and asked him to marry her with the engagement ring in Leicester Square at two o'clock in the morning.
With a simple yes, the pair started their marital life of love and busy schedules of works.
Beth, who is an immensely talented sculptor, had her own life built on her own principles. She wasn’t dependent on Tom and that was what made the duo share such a successful story together.
Beth, also took some time off her own career to help Tom achieve his dreams of opening the grand pub, Hand & Flowers.
With Tom heading towards Britain's most popular culinary show, Saturday Kitchen, earning himself an ample net worth, and Beth handling her artistry business, the couple then welcomed their baby son Acey to the world in 2015.
