Ruth Langsford presents the documentary Lose a Stone In Four Weeks, which sees her speak to many people on extreme diets. The program will be shown this evening on Channel 5 at 5:45 pm.
Although Ruth hasn’t lost a personal 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 also cut some 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 the time many women begin menopause.

The presenter recently talked about feeling “uncomfortable” in her clothes before beginning her weight loss journey.
She revealed that she had been a healthy size 12 for most of her life before the weight started “crawling” in her fifties.
Speaking to Woman in 2019, Ruth said: “When I carry any weight, I can’t change it and it makes me feel bad.
“I’ve been basically a size 12 my whole life, and then, when I hit 50, the weight crept in and 12s felt a little bit looser.”

In 2017, Ruth participated in the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, which saw her lose weight without even realizing it thanks to her vigorous training regimen.
She continued, “When I did it so rigorously in 2017, everything suddenly started to pull together and I got my waist back again.
“But you can’t recreate this kind of exercise in real life. I’m not obsessed with it, but I feel uncomfortable, like I’m stumped in my clothes.”
Since 2019, Ruth has been more active on social media, especially Instagram, showing fans how she stays healthy and slim.
Earlier this year, in August, the presenter took to her Instagram story to reveal the ritual of preparing her meals on an average Monay day.
I made a poached egg with ham and tomatoes for breakfast and a salad for lunch.
The salad consists of olives, tomatoes, watermelon and feta.
Throughout the year, the presenter also shared her journey from Couch to 5k with her followers.
The challenge includes three rounds per week, with a rest day in between.
In August, she completed the challenge saying she couldn’t believe she had “goed from struggling to run for more than a minute to running for 30 minutes non-stop.”
She added that she “realized how important a positive mental attitude was” and that she would “talk to herself every round”.
In addition to running, Ruth regularly walks the family dog, Maggie, and tries to get 10,000 steps each day.
