When celebrity chefs endorse losing weight by becoming role models for the purpose themselves, the effects can be simply mind blowing! Losing Weight is a challenging task and unless you are highly motivated for the purpose you cannot expect to see great results. Celebrity Chef ,Alton Brown, Food Networks Host and author of one of the most popular cookbooks of the present times, disapproved his heavy physique, on viewing himself on TV and set his  best foot forward determinedly in his mission of losing weight. He came up with the Alton Brown Diet , which is effective and easy to follow and is claimed to work for one and all. 

This is what Brown’s got to say “Celebrity chefs are the high priests of the food craze that is partly responsible for the fattening of America. We helped people get into this mess. I don't see why we shouldn't help get them out."

Mario BataliAccording to Brown, there are more celebrity chefs like him who are on the losing weight spree. Even Mario Batali, the lardo spread cultural signifier , has also shed quite a lot of pounds recently. The celebrity chefs seem to have used a simple set of methods which should ideally work for anybody, because they’ve worked for people who stay in the vicinity of tempting food, throughout the day.

Good nutrition is not expensive. Although Alton's approach is flavored by his personality the main thing is he steered away from processed foods loaded with empty calories. If, like Alton, you bought the smoothie ingredients instead of the items you normally buy, you would find your food dollar goes just as far. Anyway, not using over processed foods should be good fodder for a TV Chef and he is a producer first, so he knows how to keep the stories interesting.

When are we going to see Paula Deen and other morbidly obese food stars on an episode of Biggest Loser Chefs? Alton Brown: you can do anything you set your mind to- so please pitch and persuade your pals to devote at least a few episodes to model losing weight to help fans avoid Type II diabetes, heart disease, stroke and premature deaths. Get as many as you can together as a team and make it fun for the whole country. In the meantime, for the love of God, family, and life itself, let's lighten up on the butter and calorie-unconscionable menus everybody! Don't wait until you or one of your loved ones suffers a stroke, a heart attack, new blindness, an amputation or kidney failure. Jamie Oliver broke new ground recently-and took incredible heat for doing so-in order to help our nation's school children, many of whom are at the mercy of the school district's food directors because they are the "free breakfast and free lunch kids" sentenced to "bad eats"-today's school gruel, which is an almost almost daily dose of chicken nuggets and french fries-oh, and and let us not forget the canned corn that routinely accompanies the ubiquitous frozen prepared pizza. Why wait until Mario or Emeril or even the Neeleys, who are younger- are hospitalized for complications related to dietary choices?
