Bobby Flay's Diet Plan Brings Home the Bacon
Last updated: Oct 11, 2011
It sounds like a bad advertisement, but Bobby Flay lost 10-15 pounds over the past year just by following a few simple rules: eating only three-quarters of his meals at restaurants, working out consistently, refusing to eat food that doesn't taste good, and not eating late at night.
The Washington Post talked to Katherine Tallmadge, a registered dietician and author, who agreed that even these small lifestyle changes would add up to serious weight loss.
She also suggested controlling what goes on your plate in the first place (maybe because it's easier to convince yourself to eat three-quarters of a salad than three-quarters of a filet mignon?), and making sure to find an exercise program that works for you. Flay runs marathons, but Tallmadge noted that, "For some people, just training for a breast-cancer walk is enough to lose 30 pounds."
Other tips from the chef? Use flavorful ingredients like garlic, onions, and mushrooms to build flavor, swap vinaigrettes for heavy sauces, and think of vegetables as the main course and meat as the side dish.
