Tom Jones shed two stone in just five months
71-year-old singer, Tom Jones, has decided to slim down, and has lost more than two stone in just five months.
His new slimline shape is all down to a healthy eating plan known as 'the Caveman Diet', which advocates fresh raw foods over carbohydrates. He also stopped drinking a bottle of wine with dinner each night.
Jones told Radio 2 DJ, Chris Evans: “I was putting too much weight on. I didn't think I was going to and I left the working out for a bit, thought I'd keep a check on it. But with the Christmas puddings and cakes, before I knew it I was 230lb (16.4 stone) which was 30lb more than I should be.”
With help from a dietician and the US diet book, ‘Syndrome X: The Complete Nutritional Program to Prevent and Reverse Insulin Resistance,’ he overhauled his diet.
Jones explained the diet: “'It tells you to get back to what we used to eat when we were hunters and gatherers. Eat anything that's natural – meat, fish, veg.”
He also gave up drinking for two months. Aside from the bottle of wine with dinner, Jones says, “'What I didn't tell him (dietician) was I'd started off with a martini, had a cognac and a bottle of champagne too.”
