"Man v. Food" star Adam Richman has revealed his weight loss success.
The television host, who shot to fame after tackling humongous portions of food in restaurants around America, told People Magazine that he's lost more than 60 pounds since quitting his food series.
Richman said he had to cut down on white flour and dairy and has started exercising more, but admitted that sticking to his weight loss plans were hard.
"The crew got a bunch of pizzas, and it was all I could smell," Richman said. "It sucked. But I had a Greek yogurt with raw almonds, water and an iced coffee, and I was satisfied."
