The man behind the blue skivvy has undergone a drastic transformation that has seen him lose 18 kilograms and he now says he has never looked for felt better and 'life is easier.'

The popular personality revealed to Woman's Day magazine that he had let himself go and 'was really unhealthy.'

But now the musician – who dropped his weight from 101kgs in 2004 to a current weight of 83kgs – has a brighter outlook on life.
Anthony says he no longer suffers from the headaches he used to have and feels more energised after previously finding it hard to get through the shows physically.
Admitting he previously ate a diet high in starch, sugars and processed foods, including Chinese food for dinner, the star now opts for a healthier sugar free diet and now makes time for exercise, even when on tour.
