Tom Kerridge recipes: Why THESE healthy meal alternatives could help you lose weight

Tom Kerridge, 44, is helping people lose weight with some healthy but tasty recipes.

His new show Lose Weight For Good hopes to help a group of people wanting to lose weight but still cook food that tastes good.

Every week he offers some tasty recipes that cut the calories without cutting the taste.

He offers up a mixture of main meals and puddings to satisfy and help them stay on track.

His beef stroganoff is a great recipe to spend some time on cooking for a healthier family alternative.

He uses onions, mushrooms and stock as the base and lots of seasonings and herbs to add some flavour, as well as creme fraiche for a healthy but creamy texture.

Tom recommends tenderising the rump steak which is important to soften the meat before griddling it and served with rice, it comes in at 795 calories per serving for a big, filling dinner.

Another main course is a seafood pot, with cod and prawns for a dose of protein.

Using courgettes, orzo pasta and fennel, tomatoes and stock, it is just 400 calories per serving.

Tom’s cheese, tomato and basil Tricolore salad offers a hack to reduce the calories.

His no oil-salad using water, white wine vinegar and seasoning such as garlic salt and paprika, with a cornflour paste acts as the dressing without the calories.

He recommends using a blow torch to sweeten the tomatoes without losing the flavour and using ricotta instead of mozzarella.

It is just 150 calories per serving for either a light lunch or small starter.

A pudding of low-fat custard pots also provide a luxury desert without the calories.

Adding orange zest, cardamom and a shot of espresso, he finishes it by breaking in dark chocolate to melt into the pots.

After a quick freeze, they are ready to be eaten and are just 155 calories each.

He appeared on Good Morning Britain today to discuss his weight loss and slimmer figure.

The 44-year-old chef explained who he lost 11 stone: “I lost weight by choosing a low carb diet because I could still cook as I wanted, with things like butter and cream.

“As a chef you work long hours, and fall into the trap of drinking a lot and eating late at night.

“Also, the pressure of running a business can make you turn to food.”
