Boy George Lost Over 50 Pounds on Vegan Diet

English singer-songwriter Boy George recently confessed to the Daily Mirror that he keeps pictures of himself in his heavier days on his cell phone as a reminder of how far he has come – and to never go back there again.

“I could barely look at these a few years ago,” the 52-year-old admitted. “Now I look at them and just don’t recognize myself – it doesn’t seem like me at all.”

“But I keep them on my phone so I can show people. ‘This is the flattering me…and this is the unflattering me!’”

Following a 4-month stint in prison in 2009, Boy George turned his life around.

“After I came out of prison I lost about four stone in two years through a vegan diet and lots of exercise but I couldn’t get that final bit off,” he said. (For Americans, that’s roughly 56 pounds.)

“Then a friend told me about a nutritionist called Amelia Freer and she put me on a metabolic plan, so I’m avoiding sugar, glucose and processed food.”

George does treat himself from time to time, but not with burgers and greasy fries like before.

“Of course I can fall off the wagon…but now, for me, that’s having a Snickers bar.”
