Gordon Ramsay Lost 30 Pounds to Compete In Ironman Triathlon [5 PHOTOS]

Gordon Ramsay

Chef Gordon Ramsay is best known for being the merciless host of FOX’s Hell’s Kitchen and for his restaurants that stretch from the UK to the US. However, Ramsay recently steered away from food indulgence and competed in what some call the world’s most difficult race — the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii.

In order to get into competition shape, Ramsay trained every morning at 4:30am and changed his diet to include cleaner and more protein-rich meals and excluded dairy, which is a difficult challenge in itself for a chef. He ended up losing 30 pounds, although Ramsay thinks he looks like “a bloody piece of asparagus!” Asparagus don’t have six packs like dem, chef.

The triathlon consisted of a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride and a 26.2-mile run, all of which Ramsay completed in about 14 hours. Impressive is an understatement, and I think we can all agree Gordon Ramsay did good.
