Just four days before his death in Thailand on Friday, the cricket icon announced that he was embarking on “operation shred.”
The 52-year-old Australian legend indicated he was intending to get back in shape for the summer by posting a flashback photo of himself on Instagram last week, demonstrating how he desired to appear.
He said besides the snap: “Operation Shred has begun (10 days in) with the goal of returning to this shape from a few years ago by July!
Let’s get started.”
Warne’s long-time manager, James Erskine, disclosed on Sunday the dramatic efforts he had taken to slim down, saying he had only recently completed an intense and “crazy” cleanse at the time of his death.
“He did go on these ridiculous sorts of diets,” he said on Weekend Today, “and he just finished one where he basically only ate fluids for 14 days and he’d done this three or four times.”
He continued, ” “It was a bit of an all-or-nothing situation.
“It was either white buns with butter and lasagne stuffed in the middle, or he would be having black and green juices.
“He obviously smoked most of his life [but] I don’t know, I think it was just a massive heart attack. That’s what I think has happened.”
On Friday, pal Andrew Neophitou discovered the 52-year-old Australian athletic hero motionless in his room at the opulent property where they were staying.
Thai authorities have already confirmed that any suspicious circumstances have been ruled out.
