Lockdowns placed in order due to the COVID-19 pandemic have caused chaos in many people's lives. In contrast, some have had time to reflect on personal matters— family, future career, fitness et cetera. American television host Greg Gutfeld also did the same. He focused on remaining fit and losing weight.

While doing so, he followed diet plans, did cycling at home, and eventually lost a fair amount of weight. But was his weight loss journey as easy as it sounds to be? Let's find out!

Greg Gutfeld Has Been Trying to Lose Weight For a While Now

Gutfeld, the former editor-in-chief of Men’s Health magazine, dedicated a reasonable amount of time to lose weight during the quarantine period. However, it was not the first time that he was concerned about his weight.

On August 14, 2015, the media personality shared a post on Facebook with the caption “I gotta lose some weight in my fat face.” However, after that, there were no updates if he was working on losing weight or not.

Nonetheless, the current fitness editor for Prevention magazine was quietly following fitness plans and eating diet foods. For instance, on June 6, 2018, he used his Instagram handle to share a picture of green fruits and vegetables that he had been eating.

Later, when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Gutfeld completely shifted his focus on making himself fit and healthy. However, as all of the gyms were closed, he installed a Bike Apparatus in his own house and began cycling, and followed diet plans.

Thanks to his sheer dedication, he lost a healthy amount of weight. On March 12, 2020, he tweeted a post and revealed that he had lost 15 pounds altogether since the pandemic started. Also, he stated that all of the credit behind this weight loss goes to the "peloton, paleo, and pinot", referring to his Peloton Bike, a paleo diet, and some wine.

In August this past year, Gutfeld shared a photo on his Instagram where he visibly looked leaner than before. The image was captioned, "Yea, I look great, so don’t bother flattering me. (Actually please do. I could really use the emotional support)." And sure enough, he received heaps of positive replies from his fans, most of whom said he looked great.
