Chrissie Swan Opens Up About Her Transformative Healthy Lifestyle

chrissie swan weight loss

It’s no secret Chrissie Swan has experienced weight loss in the last 12 months. However, the radio personality isn’t going to be the kind to promote any kind of ‘diet’ or ‘tricks’ following her transformation.

“I’m not going to talk about the size of my a*se. I’m not going to tell you what I eat in a day. Because I’ve read those stories and they make me feel bad about myself,” she said in an interview with The Australian Women’s Weekly.

What she will share is how the Melbourne lockdown inspired her lifestyle change. The 48-year-old no longer drinks alcohol and walks for two hours a day.

“We couldn’t go out to dinner, we couldn’t go to a friend’s house, they couldn’t come to us, we couldn’t go outside five kilometres. All we could do was walk, and so that’s what I did,” she told the publication.

Previously, Chrissie had also opened up on The Project about quitting alcohol during the lockdown.

“I really am reticent to be the poster girl for sobriety because it was a decision I made for myself after giving it a fair nudge in the first lockdown last year,” she said while on air.

“If you’re thinking, ‘Oh, maybe I’m drinking a bit much or it’s not helping me anymore’, I think that’s the biggest thing I’ve taken from it, is that it didn’t help.”


Around the same time in 2021, it was reported that Chrissie and her partner Chris had ended their relationship. The pair continue to co-parent and Chrissie addressed the rumours in the same interview with The Australian Women’s Weekly.

“It’s not my story to tell … but we are very good friends. We like each other very much. We still live together. So it’s not really that different,” she said.

Through all the changes, Chrissie appears as positive and healthy as ever and we couldn’t be happier for her.

  1. I have loved Chrissie from when she first came on our scene in Big Brother years ago and have followed her ever since. She was great on the show The Circle – such a funny lady and then she went on radio and she hasn’t looked back. She looks fabulous and good on her. Will have to buy the Women’s Weekly now 🙂

  2. She looks really good and all that walking has paid off. As for the drinking, it’s not something I would want to give up. I don’t drink to excess and it doesn’t affect my health and I enjoy my sparking and the odd gin or bourbon. I gave up for a month once, never lost any weight, no improvement in my skin or anything else health or looks wise changed. I like a drink at the end of the day at least 3 times a week and would not enjoy being a non-drinker.

  3. I went for a lot of walks during the lockdown, too. I’m always inactive throughout summer – I can’t stand the heat, but I’ll be back into it when the weather cools down.

    2hrs a day is impressive! Chrissie looks great – good on her!

    • I think if you can be happy with yourself and you are not too over weight as this can cause health problems and n odd glass of whatever life can be pretty good . It is usually excess that causes a lot of health problems

  4. I walk for exercise and I enjoy it and I started with a short walk, until I got quicker and then increased.And it was lockdown that kept me going. I had no other reason not to go for a walk

    • Yeah I love walking too – when I started walking for exercise about 8 years ago, it wasn’t long before we got our dog who is soooooo cute! It is the only dog that our little family unit have had and she is so great to take walking for company if I have to sometimes go on my own. Most the time either my hubby or my daughter meet up with me and we walk together and talk and it is just the loveliest exercise I’ve ever done really.

  5. She is quite lovely and it is hard to diet and loose weight. I dont need to loose weight but wish I could get rid of the tummy I seem to have received in the last few months. Any suggestions.
