Sam Smith: Health is tough

Sam Smith has spoken about the challenges he faces in terms of maintaining a nourishing diet as he is lavished with calorific foods on tour.

The 23-year-old Stay With Me singer is currently performing shows across the US as part of his In the Lonely Hour Tour.

He has lost a lot of weight after teaming up with nutritional therapist Amelia Freer and being on the road is tempting him to eat calorific foods.

“Just wanted to take this time to say a little piece about how my eating has been over the past two months whilst touring, and just driving home more than EVER how important I think it is for us to eat more healthy,” he wrote on his Instagram account. “I have been touring America for the last two months and been visiting the most amazing cities and towns. Two things I've realised, America is f**king HUGE but also.... There is a huge problem with getting access to healthy foods. It has been SO tough to stay healthy and a few times, actually impossible where I've been left with the choice of.... Eat this, or don't eat anything for a day.”

But Sam doesn’t think the United States is the only country afflicted with this problem.

He urges fans to look for the most nutritious meals they can find to consume.

“It's not just America it's all over the world, I know. But Lordy Lordy Lordy it's a problem,” he continued. “I know this is very preachy and I'm aware I have access to healthier foods now. But all I'll say is if you can.... Try find a way to be healthy. It will make you so much happier. If you can, get @ameliafreer 's book, it genuinely helps. There's many people out there that can help. And I haven't been paid to do this post.... I actually just watched supersize me haha and felt the need to post something. Especially after my experience over the last few months. Anyway, rant over. Just don't want people to be sick, and want y'all to feel good.”
