Adam’s Diet Plan
Talking to the interviewer, Richman said, “I paid so much attention to the way I ate. It was mostly my dietary discipline that helped me in losing more than 60 pounds. Exercising has only 28% credit.” Following a strict diet plan doesn’t mean that Adam stopped cooking.
He did cook, he just didn’t eat what he cooked. “I just took a few bites,” Richman talked about reducing his calorie consumption, “And after those bites, I said to my crew ‘yo, you guys enjoy’. And they really eat and enjoyed and appreciated the dishes.”

When the interviewer asked what would be your advice for someone struggling with weight loss, Adam replied, “I would only say that there are no shortcuts. And I know this sounds like the most hackneyed thing. Here is the quote that inspired me. I found one simple thing on the internet.”
