Romelu Lukaku has already lost half a stone at Inter - and it's all down to one man

Romelu Lukaku

Romelu Lukaku has lost half a stone at Inter (opens in new tab) thanks to a strict diet plan imposed by Antonio Conte, according to the Daily Mail (opens in new tab).

The Serie A side completed the signing of the Belgium international for £74m last month.

The striker was criticised for being too bulky at Manchester United (opens in new tab) but he has already slimmed down at San Siro.

Conte has told Lukaku to follow the 'Bresaola diet', which places an emphasis on white meat and vegetables.

And the new nutrition plan has already served the former Chelsea (opens in new tab) man well, with Lukaku having already shed over 3kg.

The centre-forward scored on his Serie A debut as Inter thrased Lecce 4-0 last weekend.
