Sam Asghari Speaks Out On How He Lost 100 Pounds

Britney Spears' chiseled beau Sam Asghari wasn't always the muscle stud that he is right now, as he recently revealed how he was able to lose 100 pounds.

The 24-year-old said that his weight started to propel when he was cut from his college football team. In doing so, he eventually made his way up to 290 pounds.

“I was eating Doritos for breakfast, fast food, sugar, candy, no protein, a lot of carbs, and drinking sugary sodas,”he 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.”

 

 

Eventually he figured out that these habits were no good for him and he made a drastic change six months after leaving the team.

“I could either continue going through the same thing or I could give it another 100 percent,” he said. “I didn’t want to have to deal with that depression and disappointment anymore. I had to restart.”

Before he became known as Britney's other half, Sam worked three jobs: two of which he quit in order to make fitness his full-time job. That parlayed into him developing his body into what it is right now, which then led to many other exciting aspects of his life.

It was a tricky process, however, to get to this point. He became too obsessive with his new regime: measuring his body fat percentage daily and limiting his calorie intake to 1,500, but he was eventually able to find a good balance. In six months, he lost nearly 100 pounds, and was down to 9 percent body fat.

 

 

In doing so, he became a fitness model and booked gigs with several high-profile artists including his appearance in the Fifth Harmony video for "Work". Then he appeared in Britney's video for "Slumber Party", which led to the two of them becoming the couple they are today, and the rest is history.

Both Britney and Sam have posted videos of them working out on Instagram quite frequently, and well, they are just too adorable.

“The exercises, I come up with them, but the videos are because of my better half. She’s the video director,” he said. “It’s a very fun thing, and I look back at them and smile. Working out together is always nice and we try to do it a couple times. It’s super healthy, mentally and physically. It takes your mind off of everything else.”

He also admitted to working out to one of Britney's classic hits: "Stronger." Aww. 

Keep up the good work, handsome. 

Britney Dances With Her Shirtless Boyfriend and its Everything

Britney Spears was the talk of the gay town at the GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles on Thursday, where the pop icon received their annual Vanguard Award (presented to a member of the entertainment community who has made a significant difference in promoting equal rights for LGBT people). Ricky Martin was on hand to give her the coveted honor, which in past years has been presented to other gay icons like Cher, Elizabeth Taylor and Liza Minnelli just to name a few. 

Amid all the gay hoopla that she was ecstatic to be around (as was Gus Kenworthy and Adam Rippon who were lucky enough to get a photo with her), she still found time to get in a couple of dance moves with her unbelievably handsome boyfriend Sam Asghari.

Britney and Sam have been dating for quite some time now, as they first met back on the set of her music video "Slumber Party" last year.  Although they kept their relationship quiet early on, the adorable twosome has been posting pic after pic of them together all over the world, and this latest video of them together proves three things: Britney can still dance her ass off, Sam looks amazing both with a shirt on and without, and there is hope that he may just be the man of her dreams.

The two get up close and personal while dancing to India.Arie's song "Brown Skin" before ending the video with a sweet kiss.  Awe!  For all you diehard Britney fans out there, this is definitely a vid you are going to want to see, cherish and adore all weekend long.

Take a look:

 

 

some days you just got to dance! @samasghari
