Nigella Lawson has dropped two dress sizes going from a size 16 to a size 12. The celebrity chef was snapped while promoting her new Italian cook book, Nigellissima.
The 52-year-old, who is said to be on the Bodyism Clean and Lean plan, doesn’t want to lose too much weight.
“I love food and I love cooking so therefore I never deprive myself. Thinness is fantastic for clothes, but I don’t do fashion,” she said.
“There are times when I want to lose weight. I suppose the difference is I don't want to be as thin. Greed always outweighs my vanity.”
Despite her desire to give into her greed, it seems Nigella is on a high protein diet, tweeting images of her daily meals which include fried eggs, chocolates truffles and smoked salmon.
