Sam Smith has revealed the secret behind his shock three stone weight-loss. The British singer, who is presenting an award at tonight’s Grammy Awards , opened up ahead of the glitzy bash on the star-studded red carpet. And it seems his technique is very simple. “I’m just not eating like a pig anymore,” he laughed. “That’s basically it!”
Sam then went on to talk about the new material he is working on following his success last year which saw him scoop four Grammy Awards. “I’m writing new music but I’m also taking some time out to enjoy myself and see my family. I’m trying to get back to normal so that I’m in a position where I can write again.” Commenting on what he was most excited to see at this year’s Grammy Awards, he added: “I can’t wait to see Rihanna. I;m also looking to seeing the David Bowie tribute. And I can’t wait to get on stage and present an award!”
In April of last year, Sam revealed he had lost a whopping three stone – including one stone in just two weeks. At the time Sam was very quick to credit nutritional therapist Amelia Freer for “changing his life”. The food expert’s book Eat. Nourish. Glow. became an overnight bestseller off the back of Sam’s high praise, and Amelia – who has also advised celebs including James Corden and Boy George – had to close her client waiting list.
So Sam cut gluten, dairy and refined sugar out of his diet completely and he’s also been weight training and even took up yoga to hone his fine frame. The diet includes herb infused ice cubes – to snack on when you get hungry. “I met a woman who has completely changed my life,” Smith wrote on Instagram in March. “Amelia Freer has helped me lose over a stone in 2 weeks and has completely transformed my relationship with food. Everyone go check out her incredible book, and start to live healthy. It’s not even about weight loss it’s about feeling happy in yourself. Love you Amelia & thank you for making me feel so happy inside and out @ameliafreer #eatnourishglow.”
Nutritionist Freer recently penned the book Eat. Nourish. Glow., which purports to teach readers the “10 principles of healthy eating.” She told Good Morning America earlier this year that in working with Smith she focused on “getting back in the kitchen, cooking from scratch, making sure they are not relying on junk processed convenience food.”
