Tziporah Malkah debuts her incredible 50kg after fitness and diet overhaul

Tziporah Malkah has unveiled her staggering 50kg weight loss after completely overhauling her diet and fitness, in a photoshoot with New Idea

The Sirens actress is now a size 14, meaning she’s the same weight as when she was known as Kate Fischer in the Nineties – a top model who was engaged to billionaire James Packer.

The 45-year-old, who had been keeping out of the public eye since being labelled morbidly obese when she tipped the scales at 120kg two years ago, now clocks in at less than 70kg.

Tziporah, who had lost 30kg by last December, looks remarkably different after shedding 20 more kilograms since. 

The reality star battled chronic depression when she was a size 24, telling New Idea: ‘I was in such bad shape, mentally and physically.’

The former supermodel explained that, while working at an aged care home in Melbourne, she would binge on wine and cheese in the evenings.  

‘But now… well, it’s a different story. I can walk for miles without panting and sweating. Plus, a lot of emotional heaviness has lifted, along with the extra weight. I’m a different person!’

Tziporah, who had her breast implants removed this year, dropped the kilos with long daily walks and weight sessions at the gym with a personal trainer. 

She also replaced snacking on chips and cheese with carrots and celery to reach her goal weight – making her the lightest she’s been since she was 35.  

‘I’m elated, I can’t stop dancing around, acting like a little kid,’ Malkah told New Idea as she reflected on her image transformation.

The reality star revealed she feels much more confident now and is ready to pursue more modelling and TV opportunities. 

Malkah met James Packer right after she finished filming her first film role Sirens in 1993. They began dating that year and separated in 1998 after a two-year engagement.

The brunette beauty, who was incredibly slim during their relationship, admitted that she was attracted to James’ lavish lifestyle. 

‘I found the lifestyle very exciting and dazzling. It wasn’t as if I had an open chequebook… I had an allowance per month,’ she told Seven’s Sunday Night last year.

‘We had a great friendship, a really good friendship. There was love, but there was complications in that love, mainly because of my jealousy and my possessiveness,’ she admitted.

Tziporah weighed 118kg when she appeared on I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! in 2017 but lost 12kg in the jungle.

She put the weight back on due to an injury to her foot but by January of this year, she revealed she had lost more than 30kgs over the past year.

Speaking on Channel Nine’s A Current Affair, Tziporah said she wants to drop another 20kgs by the end of 2019. 

'I'm elated!' She also replaced snacking on chips and cheese with carrots and celery to reach her goal weight - making her the lightest she's been since she was 35. Pictured in April this year

‘I’m really hoping that 2019’s going to be a better year for me,’ she said, adding that her goal over the next 12 months is ‘more weight loss’. 

‘I’m feeling much better. So much better. [I want to lose] about 20kg [more],’ she said.

Tziporah first vowed to lose weight in 2017 after tipping the scales at 120kg and being classified by her doctor as ‘morbidly obese’.

In October 2018, she announced she had dropped the kilos by following a strict exercise regimen, eating ‘clean’ and practicing meditation. Tziporah also underwent ‘hypnotic lap band surgery’.
