ITV's talent competition "The Voice" returned on Saturday, September 3, and featured a clip of the legendary Welsh singer playing a teaser of his new song "I Won't Crumble With You If You Fall" off his most recent album, setting off a frenzy among Sir Tom Jones fans. The artist had tears in his eyes as he sang the song in memory of his late wife, who passed away from lung cancer in 2016.
The silver fox was seen looking robust and healthy while returning to the show at the age of 82; he has been a judge on the ITV series since 2012, despite needing a hip replacement and having experienced several minor health concerns earlier this year. But how does he manage it? He appears to have maintained his trim and svelte appearance for all these years thanks to a well-known eating regimen that helped him lose an astonishing amount of weight quickly.
Speaking on a Radio 2 show
Tom revealed on a radio program that the diet prioritized "natural" foods and that they would "bring us back to what we ate when we were hunters and gatherers... Eat natural foods like meat, fish, and vegetables. "
Additionally, he reduced his alcohol consumption. According to Wales Online, Tom previously admitted that he had formerly been enjoying a bottle of wine with dinner. Sir Tom explained that in addition to changing his diet and keeping an eye on his alcohol use, he also enlisted a personal trainer's help to get back in shape.
The caveman diet
The singer went on to give up alcohol altogether for two months. He also changed the things he was eating, taking tips from the U.S. diet book "Syndrome X: The Complete Nutritional Program to Prevent and Reverse Insulin Resistance." This diet plan, also known as the caveman diet, suggests tucking into as much fresh food as possible. The plan advises replacing processed carbohydrates such as pasta, pastries, and cereals with meals packed with fish, chicken, and vegetables.
A Paleo diet is rich in vegetables, fruits, and nuts, and the main difference between other healthy diets is the absence of whole grains, legumes, and dairy products. Alongside the reduction of alcohol and following the caveman diet, Sir Tom also explained how he often exercises with a personal trainer.
Purpose of the diet
A paleo diet aims to get people back to an eating pattern more in line with that of early humans. The discordance hypothesis, which underpins the diet, holds that the human body is genetically unsuited to the current food that resulted from agricultural methods.
The development of agriculture altered human diets and made dairy, wheat, and legumes additional dietary mainstays. The idea states that the body's capacity for adaptation was surpassed by this relatively late and quick change in nutrition. It is thought that this discrepancy plays a role in the current occurrence of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.
