Carrots and lettuce to lose weight, stacked bowls of Weet-Bix and the odd trip to McDonalds to put it back on.

Brisbane backrower Matt Gillett revealed the method behind his well-documented weight fluctuations on Wednesday as he declared himself good to go for the NRL's opening round.

Gillett lost about 10kg last year after neck and shoulder problems led to surgery but he says he's back to fighting weight after getting the all clear from his respective surgeons.
