Alison Hammond is a presenter best-known for hosting ITV’s This Morning. She lost a lot of weight by making changes to her diet and starting a fitness routine. But what motivated her to drastically change her life?
At her heaviest, the presenter revealed she weighed 20 stone.
Alison explained she was embarrassed by her size and decided to make a change.
The presenter started to exercise with a personal trainer following workouts which included using kettlebells and lifting weights.
Alison also changed her eating habits completely.

She signed up for WW and is now an ambassador for the weight loss group.
Alison explained: “This is something I wanted to achieve for a long time and I haven’t managed it on my own, so I went to my local workshop and met my lovely Wellness Coach Andrea and the rest is history!
“I’m falling in love with the journey and hope you will support me as much as you can.”
She shared on social media: “I know this may sound a bit corny but I’m so happy doing @ww.uk as it’s given me the confidence to just embrace myself fully.
“I never really liked my face without make-up as I have dark patches but now I’m totally loving myself and falling in love with me while I’m away on holiday.
“I don’t have to have make-up to be beautiful because I’m beautiful full stop. Yes! Please join my crusade of loving yourself!”
The presenter explained her diet changes included eating more healthy meals, fruits and vegetables as well as increasing the water intake.
“One [I have changed] is drinking more water,” Alison said.
“I didn’t realise that often when I used to snack, it was because I was thirsty. I try to get through at least two litres of water every day now and that makes me feel so much better.
“Secondly, I’m doing a bit more exercise,” the presenter added.
“I now have a personal trainer and he’s amazing. I work at my own pace – we do circuits and I absolutely love it.”
Alison revealed the main reason that motivated her to lose weight was her mother’s own health battle.
Alison had a pre-diabetic condition in 2020 which was a major eye-opener for the presenter since her late mother suffered with diabetes and she died in February 2020 after a battle with liver and lung cancer.
“I’ve never had health issues until then. It scared me because my mum had diabetes and I want to be there for my son.
“I decided to do something about it. I go for walks and I cut out sugar. I feel a lot better. I’m not weighing myself, because you feel it in your clothes. I’m no longer pre-diabetic, and I’m doing really well.
“I’ve been doing that for a while now, and you know something? I feel fitter, I feel stronger. I might not look perfect yet, but personally, I’m perfect, full stop!” she explained.
