talking on Table manners Podcast Carol explained: Back in my 30s, my husband Buddy who I loved and adored, we loved pasta and all that, but I was working so hard and it got to the point where I was eating just to survive, to stay awake.
I gained a little weight and I didn’t like it. So I started this detox diet. It was specified by nutritionists at the time because it was a 28-day detox diet. No meat, no wheat, no dairy and no sugar for 28 days.
Health: Carol Vorderman has revealed that she hasn’t weighed herself in 24 years and shares the secret to her amazing figure
Then it was all “no, you can’t do that”. Now like standard. This was for 28 days to give all your organs a natural way to detox.
(I was) very high on vegetables, not potatoes. I wouldn’t buy regular fries because of the detox – I changed everything I bought.
After a detox diet, I haven’t weighed myself since 1999 – I don’t know what I weigh. I wouldn’t let anyone tell me about my weight – you know when you go to get meds. And in general, when I’m at home, I eat well.
But if someone buys me chocolate or whatever it may be, I’ll find I’ll just eat it before I go to the veggies so I can’t eat them at home.
“I’m so happy – that’s all I’ve known for 20 years.”
Giving insight into her diet, Carol also revealed that she doesn’t cook at home and tries to eat a lot. Healthy vegetables and other low-calorie snacks.
However, she said she doesn’t worry about what to eat when she goes out and eats some of her favorite meals, including pasta and fish and chips.
Asked by hosts Jessie and Lenny Ware what was in her fridge, she said, “Lots of veggies, a bit of coleslaw, fish, turmeric, which I love, fruit, Greek yogurt, and cottage cheese.”

Working hard: Carol often offers insight into her health and fitness regimen on her Instagram page, sharing videos and photos of herself at the gym
If I go and stay at other people’s homes, I’m always amazed at what they have in the fridge. But I don’t cook at home now, you see.
When I go out I will eat whatever I want. I don’t feel denied at all. So when I go out I’ll have what I like.
‘Good pasta I love it.’ I don’t like dirty pasta. I love butter. I like fish and chips, delicious fish and chips, and I don’t like french fries – old fashioned big chips.
