- Chris Santos, one of the judges of Chopped has lost 30 pounds since June.
- He attributes a vegetable diet and intermittent fasting to his transformation.
- Santos had gained 50 pounds in the last 10 years.
In the next season of Chopped you should not be surprised if one of the judges looks completely different. Chris Santos, a chef and longtime judge on the Food Network Show, revealed People that he lost 30 pounds when he cleared his diet and tried intermittent fasting.
"I started this journey on June 20 for a much healthier self, and so far I've fallen by 30 pounds," he wrote on Instagram in October. "Look for" before and after part 2 "if I lost another 15 to 20!"
Its transformation occurs after a decade of weight gain. "Over the course of ten years, I've gained 50 pounds, which is a ton of weight, but when you think about it, it's five pounds a year, which is less than half a pound a month," he said . . "It just went on gradually and on and on."
Since June, he has been more plant-based, starting to fast three days a week, and on these days he fasted for 16 hours. He also drinks a lot less beer and chooses healthier options for junk food when he's having a night snack. Once a week, however, the boss has a cheat day, but still watches his portions.
Santos said he was trying intermittent fasting because he had friends who had good experiences with it. "And you know, if it works for The Rock, then I've tried it," he said People .

He also ran, and finished his first 5-km race. "I'll run another time each month until I can do a 10K run," he told the magazine. "I will not sit here and say that my goal is a marathon, but I will not say it is not."
