Food Network Star Reveals Shocking Weight Loss Secret

Duff Goldman, star of Food Network’s “Ace of Cakes,” has been making headlines recently for his impressive physical transformation. The 48-year-old chef and baker, who welcomed his daughter Josephine in 2021, has lost an impressive 40 pounds in just six months. In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, Duff opens up about his journey to a healthier lifestyle and how being a father has played a major role in his decision to get in shape.

For Duff, the decision to get healthy was a no-brainer. As a new father in his late 40s, he knew that he needed to make changes in order to keep up with his active 2-year-old daughter. He tells PEOPLE, “You do the math.” It was this realization that motivated Duff to start his fitness journey and make better choices for himself and his family.

Duff’s journey to a healthier lifestyle has been well-documented on his fitness Instagram, @beefcakecookie. He shares workout videos, meal prep tips, and snippets of his daily routine with his followers. From starting his day with a glass of water to working out in his outdoor gym while taking in the sunrise, Duff is dedicated to making fitness a priority in his busy life.

One of the major changes Duff has made is in his diet. As a professional baker and chef, he has a deep love for sweets and treats. However, he has found a way to balance his love for baked goods with a healthier eating plan. He even meal preps when he knows he will be away from home for an extended period, like the 48 hours he recently spent at a food festival. Instead of indulging in unhealthy festival food, Duff stuck to his pre-made meals and stayed on track with his fitness goals.

Duff also credits his early morning workouts for setting the tone for a successful day. By completing his first task of the day, whether it’s drinking a glass of water or hitting the gym, he starts his day off on the right foot and feels mentally and physically prepared for whatever challenges come his way.

Duff’s transformation is not just about losing weight, but also about being a positive role model for his daughter. He hopes to instill healthy habits in Josephine from a young age and show her the importance of taking care of her body and mind.
