Sam Smith inspiring others with weight loss

Sam Smith’s nutritionist Amelia Freer says the singer’s weight loss has helped inspire others to follow a healthier lifestyle.

The 22-year-old singer hit headlines earlier this month when he posted a shot of himself on Instagram, and revealed that he had lost an incredible 14lbs in just 14 days.

He did so by following the eating plan set out by nutritionist Amelia Freer in her book Eat. Nourish. Glow.

And now Amelia has come forward to reveal Sam’s honesty about his methods of slimming down will help thousands of others stick to a much more sensible way of eating.

“It’s very nice for me to see the results that I do get with my clients,” Amelia told People. “By someone like Sam talking about how he’s changed his diet in a healthy way without a deprivational, horrible diet, it’s opened it up to thousands of people who are now following in his footsteps.

“Sam has a lot of young fans, and how cool that these young kids are starting to take care of what they are eating. To me, that’s beyond awesome and a dream come true.”

Amelia counts James Corden and Boy George among her other celebrity clients. And she says that while Sam’s speedy weight loss isn’t standard for her eating plan, he shed the pounds by a sensible method.

“Usually for people who have that weight to lose it can happen quite dramatically, quite quickly. But it’s absolutely done safely, nothing faddy or starvation or deprivation happening here,” Amelia said.

“It’s not about being perfect, it’s not about focusing on your weight, it’s about about cooking your food from scratch. Start with one meal a day and build it up. That, for me, is the foundation of good health.”
