Sam Smith’s drastic weight loss has fans worried. One of his latest photos posted on Instagram is scaring observers, fearing the Grammy award-winning singer is going too far in his quest to have a fit body.
The Sun titles its piece: “Fears for Sam Smith as his weight loss Veers in to ‘scary skinny’ territory.” For some, this may not seem too far from the truth.
It’s known to Smith’s followers that he’s on a health kick since taking advice from nutritionist, Emelia Freer. He urged everyone to get her book, Eat. Nourish. Grow., to make the changes they want in their lives, as well.
In his most recent batch of photos, Sam Smith’s weight loss appears to possibly be heading down a different path.
In the image seen below, Smith captioned it with, “Brit abroad.”
Sam Smith’s weight loss was more obvious last year when he began following a strict diet and adhering to a healthier lifestyle. In March, 2015, he began sharing images of his body’s transformation — with him always crediting Freer for the changes.
The 23-year-old told Magic Radio’s Jo Parkerson that he loves food. He said he’s moving around all of the time, but just loves all kinds of food. He admitted this is a battle he’ll fight the rest of his life. He said if he wants to really eat something bad he’ll do it, but must “keep on to top of it.” He added that he loves fried chicken and cheese.
Sam Smith talked with Today’s Natalie Morales last summer, discussing his sexuality, his nearly 50 pound weight loss, and his recovery from vocal cord surgery.
“My relationship with food has just completely changed. During the process of this album [In the Lonely Hour], I was just getting bigger and bigger and bigger.”
Sam opened up to GQ Magazine, last year about how seeing himself overweight used to make him so disgusted he wanted to commit suicide.
“I saw a picture of me on New Year’s Eve topless on a beach in Sydney and it made me want to kill myself,” Smith said. “I just thought I was huge. I’ve had issues with my weight since I was a kid. My dad became a fitness trainer when I was 12 and he tried to help me, but I’ve always had issues.”
Sam Smith has also addressed his issues with relationships, sharing that he’s never been in a long-term relationship with another man until last year. The breakup was hard on him, but says being single makes him happier because he’s more “comfortable” with himself.

All work and determination aside, Sam Smith says weight loss is hard to do when you’re strapped for cash. He told GQ that having the extra funds makes life a lot easier when it comes to health goals.
“The reality is I can do it now because I have a little bit more money, and that’s the sad thing,” he told the magazine.
The British singer notes it’s “impossible to eat healthily if you don’t have any money.” A lot of people will agree with him on that one! It’s easy to turn to a cheap bag of chips or a package of cookies when you want to satisfy a hunger.
