Kirstie Allsopp lost more than two stone (12kg) after deciding to change her diet and exercise regime. The television presenter – who is best known for co-hosting Channel 4 property programme Location, Location, Location – said she was keen not to be overweight when she turned 50 due to the additional health risks, reports The Express.

Allsopp, who celebrated her 50th birthday last year, said she turned to nutritional therapist Amelia Freer in 2016 to help her lose weight. The healthy eating expert, who has previously coached Sam Smith and James Corden, advised her to go on the “metabolic balance” diet.

The personalised plan meant she cut out bread, potatoes, aubergines and wine and ensured her three daily meals were separated by at least five hours. Over the course of the programme, she lost more than two stone (12kg) and dropped from size 16 to size 12.

“It’s not complicated”, she told MailOnline in 2017. “Eat greens and proteins and keep carbs to a minimum.'”

Allsopp said that she believes being overweight is “a choice”. She added that she wished to lose weight to improve her health and lessen the strain on the NHS.

“We have a responsibility to be at our healthiest. Being overweight is not a part of that. Everyone does. We all do. I do, you do.

“We have an extraordinary asset in the NHS and we need to truly respect it. Being overweight obviously is a matter of personal choice.”

One of Allsopp’s main motivations to slim down was that she was aware that being overweight after menopause increases the risk of developing breast cancer. Her mother died from the condition in 2014.

She said: “My personal feeling is that for me I knew being overweight on my 50th birthday is the number one risk for breast cancer. That is entirely my choice.”

Her diet change came in conjunction with a drive to be more active. Speaking to The Sun in 2018 about her morning routine, Allsopp said she wakes up at 6.15am, gets dressed into exercise gear and heads straight outside for a workout.

She said she “runs up hills and then walks down them” before going back home and waking up her children at 7am. After her children eat breakfast, only then does she get dressed for the day and “sort out” her face.
