Adam Richman, the host of “Man vs. Food” on Travel Channel, lost 70 pounds and posed nude for the Cosmopolitan magazine to show it to the world. It took him 10 months to lose it all.

The photo where Adam revealed it all is closely connected with the FIFA World Cup 2014 as he used a football with the U.S. flag on it to cover his privates. Us Weekly reported that Photographer Dave Shore had taken the photo for the magazine that showed Adam surrounded by U.S. footballs around. The only thread he is wearing in the photo is a pair of tri-coloured socks, red-white-blue.

“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,” he explained to British Cosmo via Us Weekly. “It’s great not having to be the plucky best friend, or the comic relief anymore—I love that. Who wouldn’t rather hear, ‘Wow, you look great,’ than, ‘Ewww…’?”

“To go from hating the way I looked to being a Cosmo centerfold is a profound honor,” he added about the cheeky photo.

In an essay he penned to Men’s Health in December, Richman said he new something needed to change when he felt cramped in airplane seats, felt energy loss, and even shocked his own doctor with his weight gain. “It was depressing,” he said.

With the help of a doctor, nutritionist and some good old-fashioned soccer, Richman was able to lose 70 pounds in 10 months. “My soccer training includes squats, pushups, resistance-band work, and sprints,” the former Travel Channel star said. “Ninety minutes of running became part of my love of the game rather than a chore.”

Richman said he misses the food, but now he’s happier to indulge in the benefits of a healthy weight.

His new show, “Man Finds Food,” airs on the Travel Channel Wednesday, July 2, at 9/8c.
