Steve Pennells said he was encouraged to get fit after reading cruel comments about himself on the & # 39; Fat Male Celebrity & # 39; on Tumblr, which mocks everyone from football stars to actors and media personalities.

The 48-year-old launched an intensive program of three conditioning sessions of 45 minutes a week and committed to a strict protein-rich, low-carbohydrate diet.

After just two months of practice and good food, he debuted his slender new figure for fans.

The Sunday Night journalist had reached the weight of 104 kg before falling to 96 kg at the start of his new fitness regime, and he is now a slim 77 kg.

Steve told FEMAIL that the constant journey and fast working environment had taken its toll and that he has been in a state of & # 39; peaks and plateaus & # 39; found.

& # 39; Alcohol is a big thing, both socially and at work; but the lack of time for exercise is the biggest obstacle, & he said.

& # 39; My heaviest was probably a few years ago with 104 kg. I dropped to 96 kg earlier this year, which I weighed when I started UP Fitness& # 39;

Steve said that he & # 39; bold ashamed & # 39; was online in April by the blog on Tumblr kicked him into action.

& # 39; I was working on a story in Poland in which I took off my shirt and went into ice cold water & # 39 ;, he said.

& # 39; A few days after it broadcast some shirtless photos of mine from that shoot, it appeared on a blog named & # 39; Fat Male Celebrities – Stars Packing on the Pounds & # 39 ;. It was cheeky. & # 39;

At the same time, UP Fitness contacted Steve and suggested to try out their eight-week challenge – which he believed the & # 39; universe gave him a sign & # 39 ;.

The 45-minute training sessions included small amounts of cardio and weight training – as well as sticking to a routine when he was not at home in Sydney.

& # 39; In the midst of all this, I crossed eight countries and ended up climbing Mt Kilimanjaro for work, something that I would never have been able to do if I hadn't trained, & # 39; said Steve.

The full body routine would include a stair bar deadlift, a dumbbell press, split squats, neutral grip pulldown, cable flies, and leg extensions.

For lunch he was allowed white meat such as chicken or fish with more green vegetables and 50 g of avocado.

Gluten-free oats was his last meal before he went to bed.

& # 39; I lost more than 13 kg in eight weeks and cut my body fat from 35 to 16 percent & # 39 ;, Steve said.

He lost another one another seven kilograms in the four weeks after the challenge, resulting in a lean 77 kg.

& # 39; About halfway through I told my trainer that I was starting to see abs that I had not seen since 1994. He said that was the year he was born, & # 39; Steve continued.

Many people have noticed and commented on Steve & # 39; s transformation from a 36-inch waist to a 30-inch in such a short time (pictured in the Everest race)

& # 39; I'm in the best shape I've probably been in for 30 years & # 39 ;, he said.

& # 39; Mentally and physically I am a new man. I also need a whole new wardrobe, but that is fine. & # 39;
