PHOTOS Man v. Food’s Adam Richman before and after 60-pound weight loss

Adam Richman Weight Loss

Long gone are the days of Adam Richman scarfing down 4.5 pounds of steak on Man v. Food — and since retiring from food challenges in 2012, the Travel Channel star has dropped 60 pounds.

“I’m very proud of that, so if you got it, you flaunt it,” he joked to Zap2It upon losing 40 of those pounds in 2012.

He shed the additional 20 over the course of the last year by following a cleaner diet that includes Greek yogurt, raw nuts and lots of water. Still, the 39-year-old television personality revealed to People Magazine that he hasn’t totally lost a taste for the burgers, pizzas and hot wings he used to enjoy.

“The crew got a bunch of pizzas, and it was all I could smell… It sucked,” he said of one recent experience. Fortunately, the same will-power Adam used to employ during food challenges helped him satisfy his cravings with healthier options.

Even though Adam’s Twitter biography says he is “quite done with food challenges, thank you,” he is thankful for the opportunities Man v. Food allowed him.

Adam now hosts Adam Richman’s Fandemonium, which takes him on a mission “to find the craziest super fans, culinary creations and cultural experiences at the wildest fan gatherings across the nation.” That show airs on the Travel Channel Sunday nights at 9/8c.

    He is so absolutely adorable. I have always thought he was just such a sweet looking person, he has that kind face. He’s looking really good 🙂

  • Still unhealthy but better

    Unflattering pants.

    I still think he’s an unhealthy eater and will likely drop dead of a widow maker but at least he’s TRYING to change. Before, his behavior was freaking disgusting and downright immoral to benefit from encouraging others to become sick from eating such crap.

    I saw him last week in a restaurant in Hawaii. He super nice, he took individual pictures with everyone and he had long conversations with multiple people. He’s such a great guy 😀
