How Did Chef Mario Batali Lose 35 Pounds?

Celebrity chef, Mario Batali is looking a bit leaner these days as he's lost 35 pounds. So how did Mario lose weight?

More veggies, less meat, and smaller portions!

Mario tells the Wall Street Journal:

"I lost 35 pounds and it took me about a year and a half. I'm still working on it. I started eating less meat during the day, eating half the portions that even I myself would put in front of me, and I focused on a lot of raw vegetables."

Mario recently came out in support of the Meatless Mondays campaign as well by offering more vegetarian options at all of his 14 restaurants.

Go Mario!
