It must have been the love of his wife for fitness that provoked Ramsay on leading a healthier life. Call it insecurity or a self-esteem problem, but, once Gordon realized that his wife who flaunts a toned and fit physique didn't deserve to share the same bed with him, a fat f**k as he called himself, that was how it all began for him.
On the note, Tana was already not satisfied with her husband's dramatic weight gain problems.
Busy Work Schedule That Gained Ramsay Unwanted Weight
Besides, the Masterchef star also reveals it was the busy schedule that made him focus less on his health and weight both. Speaking in an interview, Ramsay reveals how he was so consumed by the work that he couldn't even think straight on other important things that matter apart from work.

Not to mention, it was also the death of his father, Gordon Ramsay Sr., who passed away at the age of 53 in 1997 that made the chef on leading a healthier lifestyle.
On the bright side, better late than never, Gordon realized he needed to make a change to his lifestyle and adapted a new routine to build up his weight. So, what did he do?
Ramsay Built A Gym At His Own Home & Followed An Odd Diet
As soon as he began his weight loss journey, Gordon Ramsay hired a personal trainer aka Will Usher who made it easier to the cooking expert by easily guiding him at his home. As Ramsay had less time to hit the gym, he made his own at his house.

Ramsay and Usher spent almost an hour every day with the gym equipment for no less than three days a week. The father of five would be engaged in heavy powerlifting and other workout regimens like walking on the treadmill and doing cardio.
Additionally, in order to lose weight, whilst a lot of people tend to go on heavy diets and even starve themselves. Ramsay, however, didn't follow any of those trends but instead relied on a unique diet that involved eating surely less but five times a day.
Matter of fact, the chef reveals that eating five times a day is what helped him trim down the unnecessary weight off his body. As a result, Ramsay lost 56 Lbs.
Clearly, what's even more impressive is the fact that Gordon hasn't looked back since then.
