Kate’s amaz­ing slim­down se­cret

How the GMB star dropped two dress sizes

Best - - CON­TENTS - WORDS: KELLY ALLEN

Kate Gar­raway has trans­formed her­self, and is looking bet­ter than ever af­ter drop­ping two dress sizes. Ap­pear­ing ex­tremely svelte, the 50-year-old showed off her cinched-in waist and toned pins wear­ing a green River Is­land play­suit and black tights last week on Good Morn­ing Bri­tain.

While the mum-of-two has never been big, she looked tiny com­pared to when she stepped out on the red car­pet at the Na­tional Tele­vi­sion Awards in 2016 in a red boob-tube dress.

The GMB pre­sen­ter re­vealed ex­clu­sively to best the sur­pris­ing se­cret to her new fig­ure.

She said, ‘I put it down to av­o­cado. I have at least one ev­ery day. I think that helps, as the fat makes me feel full.’

Di­eti­cian He­len Bond told best, ‘Kate, who is 5ft 3in, ap­peared to be a size 14 and prob­a­bly 10 ½ st be­fore. She’s def­i­nitely lost weight, and looks nearer 9 ½ st now and a size 10.’

Kate also ad­mit­ted she has made a more con­scious ef­fort to look af­ter her­self since turn­ing 50 last year, even ditch­ing the booze for Dry Jan­uary – and the re­sults are clear for all to see.

She ex­plained, ‘I went on a cam­paign to work out the best way to be fit and healthy for the rest of [my] life. It can be a real roller coaster where you’re reach­ing for cho­co­late bars to perk your­self up.

‘I did Dry Jan­uary, then, by ac­ci­dent, I didn’t drink very much in Fe­bru­ary be­cause I had a bug. Hav­ing done Dry Jan­uary, I’m now much more con­scious of ev­ery­thing I drink. Be­fore, at par­ties, I’d drink it be­cause it was there. So I am try­ing to re­ally en­joy my al­co­hol now, rather than just hav­ing it be­cause it’s in front of me.’

While Kate, who starts work at 3am, strug­gles to fit in gym ses­sions, she still makes sure she is ac­tive ev­ery day.

‘I find the gym lo­gis­ti­cally com­pli­cated, but I try to pack in as much ex­er­cise as I can into the day. If I go to a meet­ing, then I walk there quickly. I do at least 20 min­utes of fast walk­ing a day, even if it’s just down to the school gates.’

But Kate also ad­mit­ted to a sneaky way of mak­ing her­self look even slim­mer.

‘I have got a com­plete cheat,’ she re­vealed. ‘I put shoul­der pads into dresses. If you are a bit curvy, then it bal­ances you out. I bought some on­line, and I’ve been sneak­ing them into out­fits. It makes you look more in pro­por­tion.’

Well, what­ever she’s do­ing, it is def­i­nitely work­ing! We think you look fan­tas­tic, Kate.

‘Work­ing out the best way to be fit and healthy… it can be a roller coaster’
