Losing weight is something many people end up pursuing for one reason or another during their lifetime. This includes The X Factor 2009 runner-up and current coach on The Voice UK, Olly Murs. Back in 2015, the hitmaker decided to go on a health kick. He sought the help of a personal trainer, who documented the star’s body transformation on Twitter.
Trainer Rob Solly shared a before and after comparison of Olly on social media, which showed the singer posing for two different selfies in a mirror.
The fitness expert went on to explain the star had trained with him for 12 weeks.
The duo had been working together three times per week, ahead of his Never Been Better tour.
Rob wrote: “This is @ollyofficial after 12 weeks training me with, 3 times a week before the #neverbeenbettertour. Go Olly!”
The second shot, taken just three months later, showed Olly with a toned torso – highlighting how his body had changed during the fitness overhaul.
All in all, Olly shifted seven kilos, or one stone and one pound, in weight, the Daily Mail Australia reported.
Olly also opened up on how he had maximised his weight loss results by switching up his diet.
Rather than tucking into sugary snacks, the singer stopped eating chocolate and other sweet treats.
And, the hitmaker insisted that by doing this, the extra weight soon “fell off”.
Speaking on KIISS 1065’s Kyle and Jackie O show in June that year, he said: “When I started to train I just cut out chocolate and anything sugary out of my diet and it just fell off.
“The weight just fell off me, which was amazing … It’s quite easy [losing weight]. It’s been a lot of fun and I’ve enjoyed it.”
Having achieved the results he wanted, Olly shared some advice on slimming with his fans.
While he shared recommended reducing one’s sugar intake, the singer reiterated the importance of having balance when it comes to diet.
By this, he suggested allowing oneself to tuck into sweet treats on one day of the week.
“For anyone trying to lose weight, just cut sugar out of your diet and pick one day a week you can eat sugar,” Olly said.
“You can eat whatever you want but on the other days eat heathily. That’s all I’ve been doing.”
Fellow The Voice UK coach Tom Jones has also spoken about how he lost weight in the past.
