Dave Hughes reveals how he lost seven kilos in one month

He recently revealed he lost seven kilos in one month thanks to former Bachelor and fitness professional Sam Wood. 

And on Monday, Dave Hughes, 46, spoke about how he managed to achieve his beach body, after struggling with his weight over the past 40 years.

‘Over about 40 years I’ve wanted to get my beach body and I’ve missed out on it,’ the radio host told Today Extra hosts David Campbell and Sonia Kruger. 

‘And one thing I never realised is not to eat cakes. They pretend to be your friend but they’re not,’ said Dave. 

‘They say you are what you eat, and I was a fat chip. 

‘Now I’m a lean piece of carrot,’ he added. 

Dave also said that training with Sam was like getting married to him. 

‘I wanted to look really sexy for Sam,’ Dave joked adding that he achieved his new form with resistance and cardio training. 

Last week his trainer and founder of 28 by Sam Wood took to Instagram to congratulate the comedian on joining his fitness program.

A before and after shot of Dave, marking his nearly seven kilogram weight loss in just 33 days, was captioned: ‘Keep up the great work mate.’
