Gino D’Acampo, 46, has decided to cut back on certain areas of his eccentric foodie lifestyle as he approaches turning 50. The TV chef has spoken exclusively to Express.co.uk about the reasons behind his healthy choices and why he wants his fans to “live forever” and follow in his footsteps.
I’m not getting any younger!
Although Gino has opted for a healthier way of living, he made clear that he still eats what he wants in moderation.
Speaking about why he decided to change his diet, Gino told Express.co.uk: “Well, I’m not getting any younger and I think it’s important nowadays that I have realised that.
“And second of all, we adjusted because things are slightly different when you’re nearly 50 like me.
“I wanted to feel better and I am definitely feeling better. I’m not really doing anything drastic.”
Gino then touched on one small addition to his breakfast he has made over the last year and how much better he has felt since.
He continued: “The most important thing is I still eat the things I want to eat in moderation. What helped me a lot is having a better breakfast in the morning.
“You know talking about breakfast, one of the things that I’ve been doing now for over a year is to have my Berocca immune every day with my breakfast.
“It kind of gives me an extra kick that I needed, you know throughout the day and that helped me a lot and it still helps me a lot.
“I’ve been having them for over a year and one thing that is happening is that I’m not getting ill, so there is clearly something in them that is good for me and humans.
“But please let’s not mistake this is not an alternative breakfast or anything like that!”
Gino also hoped his fans will follow suit and adopt a healthier lifestyle as he wants them to live forever with him.
He said: “I think to listen to my fans and if I can make them healthier in one way or the other by creating a dish or by telling them a little tip of the way I do I would be a very happy man.
“I want my fans to live forever because the longer they live, the better my lifestyle is.”
Gino has made a successful career for himself working with the likes of Gordon Ramsay and Fred Sireux on their ITV show, as well as Family Fortunes and his new cooking dating show.
He is also known for his witty one-liners when he makes appearances on breakfast shows like This Morning with Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.
Some This Morning fans will remember the scene when Holly critiqued Gino’s pasta dish 12 years ago saying that if there was ham in it, it would be “closer to a British carbonara”.
Gino, shockingly replied: “If my grandmother had wheels, she would have been a bike. What the hell? It doesn’t make any sense what you said.
“It’s a different recipe, it has nothing to do with macaroni cheese.”
Holly and Phil dropped to the floor in fits of hysterics, however, Gino has revealed to Express.co.uk that he never knew the meaning of a “bike” due to the “language barrier”.
He said: “I didn’t know bike meant prostitute by the way on the spot. But then I realised when they pulled me after. It was a misunderstanding, a language barrier!”
