The convicted drug smuggler had just seven weeks to get in shape for filming, so she ditched the booze and adopted a hardcore diet.
‘I stopped drinking and just ate salad and boiled eggs and I jogged every day,’ she revealed.
Schapelle also worked out with a personal trainer twice a week in addition to cardio and resistance training.
As a result, the soon-to-be reality star was able to lose an impressive nine kilos.

‘I also jogged daily – I did heaps of high-intensity interval cardio and resistance training, and had two personal trainers each week,’ she revealed to Woman’s Day.
Schapelle also told the publication that her reason for signing on to SAS Australia was to prove to herself, her mental and physical capabilities.
‘I wanted to be the best I could be, with full intention to go to the very end. The weight loss was just a bonus – the best thing was seeing my body become so much stronger. I feel more alive,’ she said.

The convicted drug smuggler, who served nine years in Bali’s Kerobokan Prison, also told Perth Now that she is not entering reality TV to win over the public.
‘I don’t care what people think of me. I hope people enjoy it, but this is for me. I’m doing this so I know I’m in control of my mind,’ she said in August.
Schapelle, who was released from prison in 2014, added that the significance of the show is that she is known as just a number.

‘We go into SAS as a number, not a name, which is significant for me because I won’t be Schapelle Corby, I will just be a human being,’ she explained.
The show will see stars attempt to pass the selection process to join the Australian Army’s elite Special Air Service.
Other celebrities to have signed on include PR queen Roxy Jacenko, Nick ‘The Honey Badger’ Cummins, Candice Warner, Merrick Watts and Shane Warne’s son Jackson.
