Ada Nicodemou unveils astonishing weight loss: ‘I’m so proud of myself’

HOME and Away star Ada Nicodemou is in the strongest, leanest shape of her life, thanks to an eight-week diet and exercise plan that’s whipped her into shape.

The actor, 41, unveils her washboard abs in a cover shoot for the latest issue of Who magazine, looking half her age as she poses in a skimpy bikini.

Her secret to success? She and boyfriend Adam Rigby have been working out at least five times a week and following a strict “Keto Diet”, which means cutting out carbs, fruit and alcohol but tucking into meat, fats and vegetables.

Nicodemou had the Who shoot booked in as an end goal for her health kick, and while she dropped 5kg to hit 47kg by the time the photos were taken, she says weight loss wasn’t her focus – instead, she wanted to replace body fat with muscle for strength and toning.

“I’m so proud of myself,” she told Who. “I’ve got the best body I’ve ever had, but I’ve worked really hard and it wasn’t easy.”

And with that incredible cover now on the stands, Nicodemou concedes she’s prepared to relax her strict regimen just a touch, saying that she’ll adopt more of an 80/20 approach to discipline versus treating herself.

“Life is to be enjoyed,” she told Who.

Nicodemou is mum to son Johnas, 5, who she had with ex-husband Chrys Xipolitas. The former couple also suffered the stillbirth of a son, Harrison, in 2014.

Eighteen months into a relationship with new partner Rigby, Nicodemou told Who she’s “made a decision to be happy”.

“I’m choosing to enjoy my life a lot more.”
