Ruth Langsford presents the documentary Lose a Stone In Four Weeks, which sees her speak to various people following extreme diets. The programme will be shown this evening on Channel Five at 5:45pm.
Although Ruth has not personally lost a stone in four weeks, the 60-year-old has changed her lifestyle in the past in order to lose weight.
The presenter often shares her eating and exercise habits online with her followers.
Last year, she took part in the Couch to 5k challenge and has also cut certain foods from her diet to be healthier.
Ruth has admitted in the past that she has found it difficult to lose weight since turning 50, which is when many women begin going through the menopause.
The presenter recently spoke about feeling “uncomfortable” in her clothes before she started on her weight loss journey.
She revealed she had been a healthy size 12 for most of her life before the weight began “creeping up” in her fifties.
Speaking to Woman in 2019, Ruth said: “When I put on any weight, I can’t shift it and that’s making me a bit fed up.
“I was basically a size 12 all my life, and then, when I hit 50, the weight crept up and 12s were feeling a bit snug.”
In 2017, Ruth participated in BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, which saw her lose weight without realising thanks to the vigorous training regime.
She continued: “When I did Strictly in 2017, everything suddenly started to fit and I had my waist again.
“But you can’t recreate that kind of exercise in real life. I don’t obsess about it, but I feel uncomfortable, like I’m squashed into my clothes.”
Since 2019, Ruth has been more active on social media, especially Instagram, demonstrating to fans how she keeps healthy and slim.
Earlier this year, in August, the presenter took to her Instagram story to reveal her meal prep ritual for an average Monay.
She made a hard-boiled egg with a side of ham and tomatoes for breakfast and a salad for lunch.
The salad consisted of olives, tomatoes, melon, and feta.
Throughout the year, the presenter also shared her Couch to 5k journey with her followers.
The challenge involves three runs a week, with a day’s rest in between.
In August, she completed the challenge, saying she couldn’t believe she had “gone from struggling to run for more than a minute to running for 30 minutes non-stop”.
She added that she had “realised how important positive, mental attitude is” and that she would “talk to herself through every run”.
As well as running, Ruth regularly walks the family dog, Maggie, and tries to get 10,000 steps in every day.
