Sam Smith is ready to serenade his achievements in getting closer to his goal weight. The singer revealed that after following a Paleo-style low carb weight loss diet, he’s only four pounds away from his final diet destination, reported ABC News.
After dieting for more than four weeks, Smith was ready to share his success on Instagram. And he’s quick to credit the nutritionist who helped him, Amelia Freer.
“Beautiful catch up with the incredible [nutritionist Amelia Freer]. Feel happier and healthier than ever.”
During the first 14 days of his diet, Sam lost 14 pounds. But Freer says that she uses a lifestyle approach rather than a conventional diet.
“The key is about it being real, getting back in the kitchen, cooking from scratch, making sure they are not relying on junk, processed, convenience food,” explained Amelia.
A nutritional therapist, Freer explains on her website that she believes in the Paleo diet approach. The low-carb plan that she recommends is gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free and primarily grain-free. Amelia also notes that she believes in tailoring diets to suit the individual.
“When working with clients, I don’t take a “my way or the high way” approach. I recognize that we are all unique and what works for me may not work for others,” she noted.
As the Inquisitr reported, Nick Jonas also uses a Paleo-style low-carb diet after being diagnosed with diabetes. Breakfast usually includes an omelet with veggies, and Nick typically eats lean protein and vegetables for both lunch and dinner. He avoids grains and sugar.
Author of Eat. Nourish. Glow, Freer has become known as a celebrity nutritionist, according to ABC News. She has developed 10 guidelines for weight loss, all of which incorporate Paleo guidelines such as avoiding processed foods and emphasizing low-carb, fresh foods such as vegetables and protein.
For the 22-year-old singer who she has transformed, the weight loss has been a revelation. Sam has been candid about battling to shed pounds since elementary school, when he was overweight.
“It’s not even about weight loss it’s about feeling happy in yourself,” commented Sam.
Is a diet that results in 14 pounds in 14 days safe?
“Fourteen pounds in two weeks is not alarming unless a person losing that weight has any pre-existing medical problems,” explained ABC News medical contributor Dr. Jennifer Ashton said. “When you talk about eating properly, people who do have weight to lose will see dramatic results.”
