Pete Evans shows off his epic weight loss in a before and after photo

Pete Evans shows off his epic weight loss over 10 years in a before and after photo… and says his controversial Paleo diet is to thank for his dramatic slim down

He may be slender now, but Pete Evans has reminded his fans he used to be on the heavier side.

Taking to Instagram on Tuesday, the 46-year-old My Kitchen Rules judge showed off his dramatic weight loss with a before and after photo.

Pete credited his highly publicised Paleo diet with his body transformation, which took place over a 10-year period.

‘I often share images and stories of others success stories. Well here is a little snapshot of mine. 10 years between shots,’ he began.

Incredibly, despite his weight loss, Pete claimed he was actually exercising less now than he was when he was heavier. 

‘I do way less exercise now, (play a lot more now) and just follow paleo principles 99% of the time (removing the most common inflammatory foods for humans while embracing well sourced meat, seafood and organic veg which in turn helps the planet),’ he explained.

He went on to call it a ‘pretty simple formula’, before vouching for the apparent benefits of following a paleo diet.

‘We have helped people reverse type 2 diabetes, put auto immune disease into remission, helped with anxiety, depression, behavioural difficulties and a whole lot more,’ he added.

In an interview with News.com.au’s Balls Deep podcast in June last year, Pete spoke at length about his paleo diet, which he claimed added decades to his life.

'I thought I was doing all the right things by what our dietary guidelines and our so called "experts" promote,' he said

‘Once upon a time I used to train at the gym and I would have a standard Australian diet,’ he said.

‘I’d have a muesli in the morning, a wrap or sushi at lunch and at night-time I’d cook a pasta or a stir-fry.

But many health professionals have slammed the controversial diet.

In June last year, doctors called for Pete’s documentary, The Magic Pill, to be pulled from Netflix, citing the diet as being dangerous.

‘Netflix should do the responsible thing. They shouldn’t screen it. The risk of misinformation… is too great,’ Australian Medical Association president Dr Tony Bartone told The Sydney Morning Herald. 

'I do way less exercise now, (play a lot more now) and just follow Paleo principles 99% of the time,' he said of his changed lifestyle. Pictured at a Nespresso launch in Sydney in March 2009
