Over the past few months, he has been keeping his fans up-to-date with his fitness regime. And on Saturday, Gary Barlow sent social media into a frenzy after sharing a picture of himself looking perfectly chiselled. The Take That star, who is trying out a healthy juice fast, captioned the Instagram snap: "Day 5 #juicing ! Feeling full of energy today !!!! Ready for tour now !!!!! #wonderlandlive." [sic]
Fans rushed to compliment the 46-year-old's toned appearance, with one commenting: "You look the best you ever have!" Another follower remarked: "Gorgeous and fit as a fiddle." A third post read: "Can't wait to see you in wonderland u r looking amazing but I have always thought that." One fan added: "You are my inspiration to kickstart my diet. May have to do slimming world though not sure I could cope just on juice." [sic]
In recent years, Gary has undergone a dramatic transformation. In 1999 he weighed 17 stone - and made the decision to turn his life around. "I've made big changes," he previously told The Mirror. "I take exercise more seriously now and I'm big on well-being. I eat well, do an acupuncture session a week and I try to sleep well and do things to aid good sleep." He added: "I don't eat sugar, I don't eat fried foods and I stay away from McDonalds and chips, and things like that. For years, I did every diet going - Atkins, the works - and I couldn't work out why I couldn't sustain the weight loss."
