Radio producer flaunts his incredible 25 kilo weight loss transformation

An Australian radio producer has unveiled his incredible 25 kilo weight loss in astonishing photos – and revealed he is still able to buy takeaway food TWICE a day while working on his physique.

Peter Deppeler, 36, is best known as ‘Intern Pete’ on Sydney’s KIIS 1065 Kyle and Jackie O show and is regularly poked fun at by the on-air duo.

But no one was laughing on July 3 when he shared images of his fitness transformation on Instagram, showing off a ripped torso and new hairstyle.

Kerrigan said that Peter’s body was made possible by focusing on his calorie intake – and ensuring he is always in a deficit – introducing healthy habits at home, regularly training in both a strength and cardio capacity and ‘constantly setting goals’.

The National Talent Manager for the number one radio station in Sydney told FEMAIL that more recently he has been training twice a day at Re:Union Training, which has facilities in Potts Point, Brookvale and the CBD.

What does Peter eat? 

Breakfast: Avocado or hummus on soy and linseed bread/ blueberry smoothie

Lunch: Chargrilled Charlie’s salad

Dinner: Chargrilled Charlie’s salad 

He’s enjoyed weight lifting since the gyms reopened and cardio bursts on the spin bike, but when Australian fitness centres closed during the coronavirus lockdown he turned to his favourite hobby: Running.

He runs every Thursday night in the Northern Beaches with the Vipers Run Club – which has a focus on building men’s mental fitness – and did laps around the Sydney Opera House every day during the city shutdown.

‘I averaged around 500 laps of the landmark in the past four months,’ he told Run One Initiative.   

To keep up with his newfound love of working out, Peter starts his day with either avocado or hummus on soy and linseed bread with chilli or a blueberry smoothie.

And for lunch and dinner every day he eats a range of salads with protein from Chargrilled Charlie’s, his favourite chicken shop.

Sometimes he’ll mix things up by trialling some of the recipes his PT Kerrigan creates, but more often it’s a trip to the Charlie’s store. 

But balance has been crucial to his long-term success, with Pete having to slow down after a back surgery saw him hospital-bound 18 months ago.

Doctors told the hard worker that he may never be able to run again but it wasn't long before he was waking up early on a Saturday morning to complete the weekly Centennial Park run

On Wednesday morning Peter’s colleague Kyle Sandilands turned the attention onto him for all the right reasons by admiring his physical transformation.

‘Intern Pete has changed his entire life. Everything about the appearance of Intern Pete has improved. I admire him for what he has done,’ Kyle said.

‘I was a bit jealous too.’

The on-air compliment was a touching moment for Peter, who thanked his long-time friend and said that Kyle had helped motivate him.
