The Travel Channel’s portly host of the program “Man v. Food” is portly no more. The host has managed to shed 70 pounds. To let fans know just how big a difference the weight loss had made in his life, he posed nude for the July issue of Cosmopolitan UK. With nothing more than a soccer ball covering the family jewels, Richman showed off a semi-toned body that is free of unsightly bulges, love handles, and man boobs.
Richman is barely noticeable compared to his former self. Prior to the weight loss, the 40-year-old Brooklyn native was considered a lovable fuzz ball. Now, he’s a sexy hunk. He’s finding the weight loss gives him a status he didn’t previously enjoy in social circles. Because of his weight, he allowed himself to get marginalized as the plucky comic relief, the fat friend who could be counted on for a good laugh. Now, he’s someone whom the ladies can whisper among themselves with inquiries of “Who’s that good looking guy?” It should be noted that his semi-nude spread wasn’t only to show off his new body. He also used to occasion to raise funds for the group Cancer Research UK.
In part, his line of work was responsible for his weight gain. Richman said the job has required he work 15 hours a day at times while constantly sampling food. The steady stream of carbs, calories, and fat took a toll on him. Eventually, he felt depressed with his weight condition, but that is now a distant memory.
