Legendary cricketer Shane Warne died last week at the age of just 52 years and the autopsy conducted by Thai police revealed natural causes. However, the spin master was on an extreme liquid diet as he planned to shred muscle and get into shape.
Warne, sharing a picture, had in a tweet said, “Operation shred has started (10 days in) & the goal by July is to get back to this shape from a few years ago! Let’s go.” The cricketing genius was on a liquid diet, the same he had successfully conducted in the past as well.
At the time of his death, Warne was on a personal trip to Thailand. His family had said in a statement that Warne died due to a suspected heart attack after he was found unconscious at a villa in Thailand. Warne’s long-time manager James Erskine had said the leg-spinner was on a diet plan as he was looking to shed weight and regain full fitness.
WHAT WAS WARNE’S LIQUID DIET?
According to Shane Warne’s manager, he was on a 14-day liquid diet which consisted of just liquids and no food. According to reports, Warne was sweating out of usual in the week leading up to his demise.
These liquid diets are aimed at making a calorie deficit in the body forcing it to consume the excess fat and reduce weight.
“He did go on these ridiculous sorts of diets and he just finished one, where he basically only ate fluids for 14 days and he’d done these three or four times,” news.com.au quoted Erskine as saying.
