Sam Smith is talking about his weight loss success, sharing new photos and revealingjust how close he is to reaching his goal. Beyonce is among those whom he has been getting diet advice from.
The 23-year-old British soul singer has been making news both for his meteoric rise to success in the music industry, with four chart topping international hits, including the ubiquitous “Stay with Me” and his critically-acclaimed debut album, “In the Lonely Hour,” that has also ruled the charts worldwide. He’s swept four Grammy Awards and two BRIT awards earlier this year.
Now lately he’s been winning in the weight loss arena and has been documenting his progress with a series of Instagram photos that reveal an increasingly dramatic, slimmed down physique. In interviews he had spoken of a desire to lose weight before the awards season, and to say the least he has granted his own desire.
He has credited the celebrity nutritionist, Amanda Freer, author of the bestselling book, “Eat. Nourish. Glow” and he had said of his journey, “It’s not even about weight loss it’s about feeling happy in yourself.”
Now, he reveals just how close he is to the ultimate success. In the latest (above), he captions it, “Beautiful catch up with the incredible @ameliafreer xx 4 pounds away from my goal weight and feel happier and healthier than ever #eatnourishglow.”
While he has not stated is starting weight or his target weight, it’s clear he’s made progress. Now in an interview with the UK Sun he revealed he got some help from Beyonce, who, aside from being a music superstar also has a vegan delivery service. He said, “I did have a conversation with Beyonce about food, which was great.”
He also spoke of the impetus for losing weight, some paparazzi photos of him swimming in Australia that surfaced. He said of the photos, “‘I f***ing hated that. I don’t want to be the perfect pop star, I’m far from that. But I saw that picture and thought, “I hate how I look”.'”
The transformation as his many Instagram pictures reveal, is more than losing pounds; the singer smiles radiantly and appears at ease and happy with himself. That’s an achievement, and he’s sharing it with the world just as he has been sharing his emotionally powerful ballads for the past year.
