‘Man vs. Food’ Star Gets Naked To Debut Hot New Body, Healthy New Lifestyle

adam richmanToday is the last day you’ll ever recognize Adam Richman as the heavy food enthusiast scarfing his favorite dishes on Travel Channel’s Man vs. Food.

After a 10-month effort to shed excess weight and ultimately lead a healthier lifestyle, the 40-year-old man who once ate a five pound pizza for the sake of television stripped down this week and debuted his sexy new bearish body in a fully-nude photoshoot for horny ladies bible Cosmo.

He tells the magazine that his ballooning weight sent him into deep depression. He decided to make a lifestyle change with a regular workout routine and healthy eating habits after watching his weight climb during regular visits to the doctor. “I went in for a checkup, and when my doctor had me stand on the scale, even he was surprised,” he says. “Seeing that number (which I’ll take to the grave) was a turning point. I knew I needed to make a change.”

Richman debuted his weight loss story with People in late 2013. For reference, this is what he looked like in 2012:

“To go from hating the way I looked to being a Cosmo centerfold is a profound honor,” he said, adding that he has lost over 60 pounds and counting.

Check out more sexy shots of Richman on Instagram. If you scroll back far enough, you can watch his inspirational change take shape over the past year.

      Good for him, but there goes his TV show. He was pretty hot before he lost the weight. Big guys can be sexy too.

      I remember him, when the show started, i thought he was a cute and husky. His show required him to binge eat or overeat and if you saw the show you know it was all fatty foods. I think his weight loss hollowed out his face a bit, but as long as he’s living a healthy lifestyle, good for him.

      There needs to be a better “before” photo. He didn’t look he was that heavy to begin with–though in the picture he’s leaning forward which tends to be a more forgiving angle.

      @barkomatic: BEFORE/AFTER in a British tabloid:

      Only 40? He looks more like 50 (in Express).

      Adam Richman’s personality is what makes him sexy – regardless of what he weighed then or what he weighs now. Now comes the tough part – keeping it off.

      Though I’ve been a longtime fan of “Man vs. Food” and of Adam’s, as a formerly obese person, I always wondered about how his show affected his health when he was eating so often and in such great quantity. I’m not surprised but, as a fan, I am pleased that he seems to have chosen to live a healthier life. Maybe now his fans will get to have him around a lot longer. And as a gay man, I think Adam has always been easy on the eyes, but in my opinion, he’s finer than ever! Now, I gotta go get me that issue of Cosmo…

      this guy has some interesting PR. A puff piece on Queerty? Are his demos not showing enough gay men?

      @Alan down in Florida: Exactly. So much focus is on the losing, but all things considered that’s fairly easy. Keeping the weight off long-term is a whole different story. He looks fantastic, by the way. Gorgeous body! (And for what it’s worth, yeah, I think he looked great before he lost the weight too.)
