Graham Elliot weight loss: MasterChef judge competes in 10K race after losing 150 pounds
MasterChef judge Graham Elliot run his first 10K this week.
Graham Elliot, 37, competed in the race following his recent 150-pound weight loss. He slipped on running shorts and a white tank top for the sprint, which took place in Chicago on May 26.
The restaurateur posted a photo of himself from the event to his Instagram account on Monday, captioning the shot: “Celebrating the premier of #MasterChef by running my first #10K.”
The new season of the FOX show kicked off on the same day.
Graham Elliot went on to recognize his MasterChef co-hosts, Gordon Ramsay and Joe Bastianich, writing: “Thx @gordanramsay @jbastianich for the support and encourage!”
The slimmed-down star, who completed his 10K in a reported time of 1 hour and 16 minutes, peaked at close to 400 pounds, before undergoing weight loss surgery.
In 2013, Graham Elliot chose to receive a sleeve gastrectomy, which aided in his weight loss.
