The Australia's got talent judge opens up on his body transformation.
“Last year I was getting really overweight, then one day I turned to my wife [Clarissa Weerasena] and said, ‘I have to lose this,’” Manu admits to New Idea.
“I knew I had a few months where I could do that at the beginning of this year and I just went for it.”
And go for it he did! The beloved TV personality cut out carbs, sugar and alcohol from his diet and visited the gym five days a week. Four months later, Manu had lost 12kg.
“I’m very proud I’ve finally got to where I wanted to go,”he says. “After four months, I was 12 kilos down and I am still the same weight today, so I am really happy.
“You don’t think it’s a lot of weight, but then you put your clothes on and you go, ‘Oh, I’ve lost two sizes of clothes,’ and that’s pretty cool.”
