By ACA staff

At the height of his Olympic swimming career, Geoff Huegill weighed around 90 kilos. But, when A Current Affair caught up with the athlete towards the end of last year, Huegill was tipping the scales at nearly 120 kilos.

After retiring from swimming in early 2007, Huegill went travelling overseas and added more than 30 kilos in just 12 months.

His waist size went from a 34 to a massive 42.

With the weight gain came depression and Huegill was even arrested at a Brisbane taxi rank for drunken behaviour, but never ever underestimate an Olympic champion.

Within a relatively short period of time Huegill has lost more than 22 kilos and has put his life back on track.

Huegill has been on a diet of healthy food and supplement shakes which he credits his weight loss to.

He's the new face of the Xantrax product he claims his remarkable change to.

So what exactly is Xantrax and how does it work?

According to its website Xantrax diet shakes are lower in fat, carbs and calories compared to the other shakes on the market.

It claims that it can

  • Metabolise fats, carbohydrates and sugars

  • Support a healthy metabolic rate

  • Maintain healthy energy levels

  • Support exercise performance
