Much-loved TV host Osher Günsberg vowed to never take his shirt off on camera unless it was for the cover of Men’s Health Australia, and well, it seems he’s a man of his word!
The 44-year-old took to Facebook on Sunday to reveal his incredible body transformation on the cover of the August issue of the popular men’s magazine.
“This is me, with my shirt off on the cover of Men’s Health Australia, and I’m the first plant-based person to do so in Australia,” a proud Gunsberg wrote.

The Vegan reality TV personality and radio host dropped 9 kilos of fat and gained 2.5kg of lean muscle in an incredible 10 weeks.
Having always been open about mental health, Osher explained that he started exercising as a way to “help manage life off of meds”.
“I hadn’t been on antipsychotics for about 18 months before I started this,” he wrote. “Coming off meds altogether in December meant that I needed to put management strategies in the place where they once were, I needed things to help me regulate my emotions and emotional responses – and resistance training was a large part of that.”
“It’s now seven months off meds, and I’m still under doctor’s supervision – because there’s a big difference between not taking meds and not NEEDING to take meds,” Osher wrote.
“The mental health benefits are incredible, the physical health benefits are off the chart (my Dr can’t believe my blood pressure for a 44yo) and let’s be honest, the aesthetic benefits aren’t bad either.”
Osher finished by thanking his wife and trainers for their support.
“This is a life goal, a dream come true for me, and along with Em & Chief, I couldn’t have done it without the support and patience of my wife Audrey, the inspiration of Guy Sebastian and the workload management of Lauren Miller.
“I’m so grateful that I’ve had this chance. A chance to change my body but also my life.”
