By Ally Parker July 30, 2019


My Kitchen Rules judge Manu Feildel has opened up to New Idea, revealling the lengths he went to in order to shed a whopping 12 kilograms in four months. 

“Last year I was getting really overweight, then one day I turned to my wife [Clarissa Weerasena] and said, ‘I have to lose this,’” he told New Idea.

The pair embarked on an intensive gym routine, working out five days a week. The chef also told the publication, he cut carbs, sugar and alcohol from his diet. 

“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.

“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.”

“I have more energy and I am so much happier,” he continues.

“It’s good especially for my son, Jonti, 14, because he plays a lot of sport and I’ve got to be part of it, so it’s nice to be able to run on the field without feeling like a hippopotamus.”
