Si has said: “It’s never too late to do something about it, you just need very small incremental steps, such as walking 500 yards more every day.

“It’s not rocket science, it’s not about massive changes. With lots of small changes you develop momentum, you can see the difference.”

How did the Hairy Bikers weight?

Use spices

Si said: “There are very few calories in spice. If you’re clever with herbs and spices you can make fantastic dishes which have less calories.”

Calorie count

Si said: “That’s how Dave and I lost weight, we counted calories, simple as that.”

Tweak your desserts

Si said: “My top tip to make cakes healthier is to use honey and carrots because they’re both sweet.

“Use some skimmed milk, some ripe bananas, some good eggs and spices and you’ve got yourself the base for a great cake.

“Also, you can make fatless sponges, sponges by their very nature have no fat in them when made with egg whites.”
