Britney Spears’ boyfriend, personal trainer and model Sam Asghari, credits a low-carb diet and rigorous gym workouts for his 100-pound weight loss in six months.
Asghari’s ripped physique and six-pack abs have won praise from Britney’s legions of adoring fans. But just five years ago, the 6-foot-2 Sam tipped the scales at 290 pounds and subsisted on an unhealthy junk-food diet.
Not surprisingly, being overweight, flabby, and sedentary made the former star athlete extremely depressed and hopeless.
Doritos And Soda For Breakfast
“I was eating Doritos for breakfast, fast food, sugar, candy, no protein, a lot of carbs, and drinking sugary sodas,” Asghari, 24, told Men’s Health. “My nutrition was extremely horrible. The stress and the fear of not going anywhere [in life] combined gave me my depression.”
Asghari said his downward spiral began in 2013 shortly after he was cut from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s summer football program before his freshman year. He lost his chance at a scholarship and was forced him to move back to Los Angeles.
Depressed and unhappy after he blew his chances for a football scholarship, Sam stopped working out and drowned his sorrows in junk food. “I was disappointed in myself,” he recounted.
After six months of being a couch potato, binge-eating, and feeling sorry for himself, Asghari decided to pull himself together and committed to getting back in shape.
I was inspired, I was ambitious, and I wanted a change. I told myself that nothing was going to stop me, and nothing ever did. I was Inspired to work my ass off because my family worked way too hard for me to be here, I would never take any opportunities for granted , and will always will give it all I got. Things happen for you and not to you. Don't ever point any fingers ???? #pizzaforlunch#oreosfordinner#doritosforlife
Sam dramatically overhauled his diet by cutting out junk food. He stuck to a strict menu consisting of protein like chicken, turkey, eggs, and fish, vegetables like broccoli, green beans, asparagus, and some complex carbs.
In six months, Asghari lost 100 pounds and slimmed down to an impressive three percent body fat. Thanks to his newly-chiseled physique, Sam tried his hand at acting and modeling.
That path led him to meet pop princess Britney Spears in 2016 when he was cast in her Slumber Party music video. The attractive and fitness-minded couple has been dating ever since.
Now that he’s in great shape, Sam no longer need to follow such a strict diet, but generally eats healthy because it makes him look and feel his best.
Asghari, who’s also a personal trainer, has helped Britney get in the best shape of her life. The couple often posts workout videos, which are usually filmed by Spears’ 12-year-old son Sean.
Britney Spears now has a hot bikini body at age 36, thanks to a low-carb diet, cardio exercise, calisthenics, weightlifting, and yoga workout, as the Inquisitr has reported.
Sam Asghari says Britney inspires him to work harder and be a better man.
“She motivates me more than anyone,” Asghari said. “If I could be that humble when I’m that high in life, that would be the best thing. She is another blessing that happened to me.”
