What do you think a Chef does in the majority of his/her time? Well, I guess food, food, and food. Now there is nothing wrong with preparing food.
However, the problem is eating that food in excess. One of the chef’s tasks includes tasting food before approving it for others. Because of this, they consume a lot of calories daily without even knowing.
The famous American Chef, Kevin Belton faces the same problem. You might have seen the chef cooking delicious food on television.
He is a great chef. However, because of his work, he gained a lot of weight. I mean who does not feel tempted when surrounded by a lot of delicious food?
Gradually Belton reached a point where doctors warned him to do something about his weight because his blood pressure was rising. And many other problems were also rising.
He then felt alarmed and started figuring it out. Belton really figured it out. As his weight increased gradually so did he lose it gradually.
If you have been following Kevin for a long time you might not have felt much different. But if you compare him with his 3 three-year-old photos you will see a lot of positive change.
Belton in an interview said “I have been working on it for a long time. I do think about the food. I needed to do something. I was getting uncomfortable. I was told I was pre-diabetic and my blood pressure was also rising. So my wife and I decided to do something about it.”
