Did Michael McIntyre Go to a Weight Loss Camp to Shed Some Pounds?
English comedian cum TV presenter, Michael McIntyre, went through an inspirational weight loss journey. Let's see how that turned out to be.
Comedian Michael McIntyre spent most of his life making the audience laugh through his standup comedy shows around the world. Not just that, the charismatic personality currently hosts his own Saturday night series, named 'Michael McIntyre's Big Show' on BBC One. Furthermore, he was also one of the judges on 'Britain's Got Talent'.
So busy making people laugh, McIntyre was too caught up to look at himself, which resulted in him getting quite some weight. Thus, he went through an inspirational weight loss journey, no matter how accomplished he was for his own good. The humorous artist went through several mechanisms, be it workout or diets, and eventually achieved his goal.
How Did Michael McIntyre Gain Weight?
According to McIntyre's former colleague, Jonathan Woss, he was never very overweight, but always a bit chubby. The 'Britain's Got Talent' judge was a well-spoken, intelligent comedian who never relied on being overweight to amplify his comic talent. Furthermore, not many cared about his weight to inspire him to cut the gains, but it was his own decision, which makes it all the more inspiring.

The primary reason for his gained weight was undoubtedly his intakes. Before getting on the weight-loss train, he used to eat all sort of foods that was responsible for his significant weight. In fact, his day began with a heavy breakfast with pancakes, mixed fruit, and vanilla yogurt. Similarly, the lunch would comprise smoked venison, poached pear salad, and a satay chicken with rice in dinner. And to add the cherry on the top, he used to consume several muffins and crudites on snacks.

Yes, you heard it right. The comedian Michael McIntyre experienced yet another humorous moment to share, which even led him to cut off his weight. Interestingly, it was a mobile application in his son's phone, named 'Akinator the Genie', which guesses the famous people you are thinking by asking questions. The TV personality revealed on 'Graham Norton's show', how he felt to try the app while his son was at school, for all the egotistical reasons.
Initially, it started asking questions like, "Is it a man? Is he American?" and narrowed it to a British comedian with dark hair, which got him all excited. But, then the app asked, "Is he slightly overweight?" That right there hit him quite hard, and as McIntyre took a deep breath, it replied, is it Michael McIntyre? And that was all the motivation the TV star needed to go on a weight loss journey.
