Alex Pike, 44, unveils the secrets behind her two-year transformation

Nathan Buckley’s new girlfriend Alex Pike has undergone quite the transformation in the last two years. 

The 44-year-old recently shared photos of herself taken in April, 2019, which show her with a fuller face and figure compare to her current toned appearance.

The photos were taken right before the cosmetic nurse embarked on the viral #75HARD Challenge.

The extremely strict health and fitness challenge is described as a ‘mental toughness test’ which pushes participants through 75 days of rigid diet and rigorous exercise.

It involves twice daily workouts, calorie counting, a clean diet with no cheat meals, reading non-fiction books every day and much more.

Even before embarking on #75HARD, Alex followed a very clean and restrictive diet to stay in shape.

In 2016, she wrote on her website that she doesn’t eat any sugars, breads or pasta and prefers resistance training and body building to aerobics exercises.

‘After having three children I am in the best shape of my life. I owe this to Isagenix shakes twice a day a dinner of lean protein and green based vegetables,’ she wrote.

Turning back the clock: The 44-year-old is a fan of Cosmelan treatments, which reduces the dark spots caused by melanin, hyperpigmentation and ageing

She added the hashtags: ‘#antiwrinkleinjections #fillers #dermalfillers #laser #skinboosters #chinfillers #fractionallaser #pigmentation #volumereplacement #ageinginreverse #getbettereveryday.’

Although Alex doesn’t appear a day over 25, the WAG revealed on a podcast in March that she’s actually ‘close to 44’. 

‘I’ve never been more empowered in my life and I’m close to 44,’ she said on the Curious Conversations podcast.

‘I used to hide my age and be very ashamed because there’s such a stigma for women.’

THE RULES OF THE #75HARD CHALLENGE

1. Follow a strict diet – no cheat meals for the entire 75 days.

Calorie counting is not essential but the diet must eliminate chocolate, cake, soft drinks and alcohol.

2. Workout twice a day for at least 45 minutes, with one outdoor session.

3. Drink four litres of water per day.

4. Read 10 pages of a non-fiction entrepreneurial book each day.

5. Take progress photos every day.

Alex added: ‘I hate when people say, “You’re really hot for a mum.” It’s like, really? Do I have to be attractive for a mum? Can’t I just be attractive? ‘I don’t want to be good for my age. I want to be good.’

The former model said she’s had a little help with maintaining her remarkably youthful visage.

Alex first dabbled with anti-wrinkle injections at the age of 23 after a surgeon urged her to try Botox.

‘I ended up having the treatment – just my frown line,’ she admitted.

‘And when it started to take effect, I could not believe the difference and I then started getting more modelling [jobs] because I was looking super fresh.’

She also drinks four litres of water a day, downing three litres while she’s working at her clinic and then another litre at home in the evening.
