Any Food Network-obsessed fan can probably tell you all about their favorite Duff Goldman creation. The famous American pastry chef began working in food at the age of 14 before becoming well-versed in the culinary world.
His career started due to a little bit of luck since, originally, he was told that his experience was filled with irrelevance. However, chef Cindy Wolfe gave him a chance anyway which landed him a job at Charleston in Baltimore. As he gained notoriety, he started making appearances on a handful of shows and is now a beloved television personality. Where is he now?

Duff Goldman is on a personal health journey.
Recently, the chef opened up about his current weight loss journey. Duff said that he was able to lose 40 pounds and was inspired to do so by his daughter.
“Making the right decisions becomes so much less of a chore because you’re making those decisions for somebody that’s relying on you," he told People.
It only took Duff six months to lose the weight and he documented the process on his Instagram. He explained part of his routine. "I've noticed that if I get my feet on the floor and do my first task of the day (drinking a glass of water) right when I wake up, everything else gets smoother from there," he shared. "If I don't drink my water and go straight for coffee I find that I'm mentally behind a little all day. Like they say make your bed every morning so you accomplish that first task. It really makes a difference."
