Manu Fieldel has spoken candidly about his recent weight loss, which saw him lose 12 kilos in just four months.

In an interview with New Idea magazine on Monday, the 45-year-old My Kitchen Rules judge confessed he was ‘getting really overweight’ before changing his lifestyle habits.

Manu said he spoke to his wife of a year, Clarissa Weerasena, about his desire to slim down, before utilising a few months off from work at the beginning of the year to focus on his health.

He said he lost the weight by cutting sugar, alcohol and carbs from his diet, and hitting the gym five days a week.

‘I’m very proud I’ve finally got to where I wanted to go,’ he told New Idea.

‘After four months, I was 12 kilos down and I am still the same weight today, so I am really happy.’

Manu said it was only after he put on some of his old clothes that he realised just how much weight he had actually lost. 

And he said his wife joined him on his weight loss mission, with Clarissa losing 12 kilos, too.

But he said they now relax their diet on the weekends, allowing themselves to indulge in ‘naughty food and have a couple of glasses of wine’.
