The celebrity chef, 60, explained in an interview with Today on Friday, May 22, that his weight loss journey began when Lucas Cancelier, a rugby player and trainer, visited Smith, his husband, Jesus Salgueri, and their four children in Florida before returning home to Argentina.
However, as the coronavirus pandemic spread, Cancelier decided to shelter in place at Smith’s home. The Florida native told Cancelier that he was unhappy with his current weight of 330 pounds and the pair set a goal for Smith to lose 30 pounds.
