The ‘Stay With Me’ singer has shared a series of snaps on Instagram, which show off his dramatic weight loss, and it’s all thanks to a nutritionist Amelia Freer.
The 22-year-old, who has battled with his weight since childhood, credits Amelia and her book ‘Eat. Nourish. Glow.’ with not only changing the way he views food, but changing his life.
Three weeks ago I met a woman who has completely changed my life. 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
“Three weeks ago I met a woman who has completely changed my life,” Sam wrote alongside one of the snaps. “Amelia Freer has helped me lose over a stone in 2 weeks and has completely transformed my relationship with food.”
He added: “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'”
In an interview with The Guardian last year, Sam spoke of his relationship with food, which he described as his ‘favourite thing in the world’.
“I think I prefer food to singing,” he said. “It's really bad, isn't it? Food is my favourite thing in the world. I always say if I ate what I actually wanted to eat I'd be in one of those electronic scooters because I'd be too big.
“I was a very big teenager. Well, massive actually. Well, not massive, but big. My dad basically became a fitness trainer to help me. He took courses and started to train me, and taught me how to eat better.”
Earlier this year, Sam also confessed that he’d tried to lose weight in a bid to get signed by a record label.
“Before I made this record, I was doing everything to try to get my music heard,” he told BBC Newsbeat.
