LONDON, June 5 (UPI) -- Adam Richman... centerfold?

The 40-year-old Man v. Food and Amazing Eats star recently bared all for Cosmopolitan UK. He appears nude in the magazine's July issue, and discusses his 70 pound weight loss in the interview.

"To go from hating the way I looked to being a Cosmo centerfold is a profound honor," he begins the article. "If you're a guy who's always been the fun-to-be-around teddy bear, then all of a sudden people are viewing you as sexy, it's nice."


"It's great not having the be the plucky best friend or the comic relief anymore," he says candidly. "I love that. Who wouldn't rather hear, 'Wow, you look great,' than 'Eww...?'"


The Travel Channel host shared in an essay for Men's Health in December that long hours at work and an abundance of food caused him to become "depressing[ly]" heavy. Seeing himself on tape and a routine checkup spurred him to lose 70 pounds in 10 months.

"Do I miss the food? Sure," he writes. "But not as much as I enjoy the benefits of being at a healthy weight."
