A source close to the star exclusively revealed to The Sun in March, 2019 that the chef was on a natural-based eating diet to lose a few pounds.
They said: “Summer started paleo as a New Year’s resolution and has stuck to it rigidly.
“Once she started seeing results, Paul took notice and decided to try to clean up his diet.
“He can’t be as militant about it, given his job. But he’s started eating more whole foods — lean meats and veg in particular.”
