A trimmed-down Clive Palmer has taken to Twitter to reveal his dramatic weightloss since leaving parliament.

The billionaire claims to have shed 21kg since losing his Federal seat of Fairfax at the July election.

"Lost another 1kg today. Thats 21kg total. Still trying... #liteandeasy," he tweeted on Tuesday.

He also made reference to the plight of the Australian group dubbed the "Budgie Nine" who were arrested in Malaysia for stripping after Daniel Ricciardio's Grand Prix win.

"If I lose a little bit more weight, I can get into my budgie smugglers."
