Ed Gamble Lost 44KG Weight in His Twenties by Quitting Binge Eating, Drinking, and Engaging in Physical Activities

Ed Gamble’s (@edgamblecomedy) 44kg weight loss was the result of simple lifestyle changes rather than a crazy crash diet whilst battling type one diabetes. His decision to lose weight came after he started getting fewer TV bookings. Ed, on the other hand, claims he never had low self-esteem.

He was perfectly content, but when he was booked for TV, he decided it would be nice to lose a few pounds. Gamble discusses his weight loss and his inability to purchase men’s urban wear from River Island. In his early twenties, he reduced his 121kg body weight by quitting binge eating and drinking. He also enjoyed physical activity.

The English comedian also experimented with veganism for nine months before abandoning it. Slow-cooked meat has become one of his favorite foods. Gamble began running and has since run the London Marathon to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund. His dedication to the cause stems from the fact that he was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 13. The Great British Menu judge was noticeably bigger when he first started doing stand-up comedy. He didn’t start taking care of himself properly until he was in his mid-twenties.

Ed noticed the effect on his blood glucose level when he got on top of his diet to try to lose some weight. And he was well aware that they were much easier to control. When the comedian began to try to lose weight, he also gained a better understanding of his diabetes and diabetic control, which go hand in hand. He explained that once he began changing his unhealthy lifestyle, he felt more in tune with his condition. Since then, he has maintained a healthier weight.

The Mock the Week alum has since become more conscious of his blood sugar levels and has incorporated the experience into his standup routines. Ed frequently addresses his illness as part of his stand-up routines. He previously turned his illness into a comedy show, naming his 2019 tour Blood Sugar, which was released in 200 countries as an Amazon Prime original special. He manages the condition with the help of a glucose monitor. However, Type 1 diabetes is not associated with age or being overweight, despite the fact that weight gain is a common side effect of insulin therapy.
