Kate Garraway has lost three stone over the past couple of years; a stint in the I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! jungle contributed to her weight loss. But over the past 18 months, while dealing with husband Derek Draper’s ongoing health battle following his admission in hospital with coronavirus, fans of the Good Morning Britain presenter have been concerned about her slimmer frame. But she put their mind at ease and reassured them she was following a healthy diet. 

Kate took part in the 2019 series of I’m a Celeb. 

Before heading Down Under, the TV and radio presenter lost two stone in weight. 

She swapped sugar and caffeines for avocados. 

She said: “I tried different popular diets and realised, because of the crazy shifts I do, I regulated my energy with sugar bursts.

“I don’t think I ate a lot of sugar but by 8am I’ve always had loads of chocolate.

“Now I eat avocados obsessively because I found one of the diets was high in good fat, medium protein and zero sugar – which is a bit extreme for me.

“But eating avocados and low-sugar foods help keep my energy levels up,” she told Fit & Well magazine. 

However the jungle diet of rice, beans and lean meats meant she lost another stone. 

Shortly after her stint on the show, Kate spoke about the transformation her body had undergone:  “I was a bit shocked when I got into the dressing room and looked in the mirror.

“I thought, ‘Oh, my God!’ because you don’t see yourself. There is no mirror in the jungle.

“They weigh you before you go in and they weigh you when you come out and I’ve lost a stone… I was really eating in there as well, so rice and beans is kind of the way to go,” she told The Mirror. 

A year later, in October 2020, Kate left GMB viewers worried by her size.

Another wrote: “How is your dear husband and your lovely children? You’ve lost a lot of weight dear try and eat regularly and keep fit.”

But a third said: “You look like you’ve lost weight Kate… you’re looking fantastic.” 

She responded with: “I try to go day-to-day.

“I’m aware that people are saying I’m looking a bit thin.

“I am eating, I promise you I’m eating. I promise you I’m feeling myself.”

Stress can affect someone’s weight, according to healthline.com, it “may lead to missed meals and poor food choices”. 

“For others, stress may cause them to completely lose their desire to eat.”
