When his grandfather died and his mother was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, it was a wakeup call for Michael Digby. The 311-pound chef needed to get in shape. So he auditioned for Food Network's Fat Chef, made it onto the show, and lost 100 pounds in 16 weeks.
Now, Digby maintains his lifestyle by cooking nourishing meals with healthy ingredients, such as organic vegetables and antibiotic-free meat. He brings those wholesome meals to diners during catered events, such as dinner parties and romantic dinners for two. And for those who want to learn how to make tasty and nutritious meals at home, he offers cooking classes.
