Gregory Gordet reviews the results of his health journey.

the top chef The 46-year-old star revealed that he lost 40 pounds in the latter half of 2021 after giving his body a “healthy reset.”

He participated in a side-by-side carousel of before and after, ending with one last photo after another while talking about his “epidemic weight journey” on Instagram on Tuesday.

“212# to 172# That was hard! 😩💪🏾✨,” Gourdet commented to the snap. “Between gyms closing down, running injury (I have a meniscus tear) and eating out alive at work, I’ve gained quite a bit of weight in 2020.”

Talking about his experience, he added that while he was “pressing the health reset button in July” when he was at his “highest weight ever,” he quickly discovered that previously successful methods like intermittent fasting and yoga weren’t working.

“I walked vigorously on the treadmill for several months until my therapist told me I could run again,” Gourdet said. “I went on keto for the first time and extended my fast to 20 to 24 hours a few days a week and finally started losing the extra weight. I spent hours diving deeper into the health benefits of fasting and the keto diet.”
