The WYES-TV presenter, Kevin Belton, went on a quest for a slimmer physique a few years ago and has lost more than 130 lbs of weight during that time frame. This has naturally brought curiosity amongst fans over how he managed to achieve such a remarkable feat.
Back in September 2019, Kevin took to his official Twitter account to discuss his fashion adventure when some fans wondered if he had lost weight and used gastric bypass surgery to achieve it.
To this, Kevin disclosed that the keys to his weight loss were regular exercise with his wife, a low carbohydrate diet, and smaller servings.
$34 at @DestinationXL not an outlet. It has taken me over two years but I’ve lost 130lbs. I exercise everyday with my wife & puppy Cookie Monster. I eat low carb (not no carb because that’s just not for me)& a lot smaller portions. It’s taken a long time &been hard but worth it.

Speaking on his first memory of cooking, the chef said:
I remember my mom starting to cook onion, celery, and green pepper and then her going between the refrigerator and pantry to figure out what she was going to prepare while the Trinity was cooking.
Belton then revealed the first thing he learned to cook was scrambled eggs.
When asked about what he learned about cooking from his family while growing up, the chef said:
I remember the great conversations they had during cooking. I remember what was most important about their cooking was the love and care they put into each dish. You could feel and taste the love and care they put into every dish and to this day I feel the most important ingredient you can add is love.
In fact, my wife had heard me say “love is my secret ingredient” and she stamped it on a sterling silver spoon that I always have with me because that is what I feel is most important.
Belton further disclosed he rarely ever cooks at home since his wife, Monica, does all the cooking and she’s got several dishes that are pretty comforting to him and his stomach.
