Robbie Williams originally found fame as a member of the English pop group, Take That. He performed in the band from 1989 to 1995, however, he went on to achieve further commercial success with his solo career, beginning in 1997. Robbie is a much loved singer and has been a constant presence in British music culture throughout the last 20 years. Recently, the singer-songwriter has made an admission that he has struggled with a “relentless weight battle” for several years and admitted that he used a simple diet plan to lose weight.
“I can’t keep trying the same things and hoping for a different outcome.
“I trust the history of behaviour science that WW has.”
Recently, when he appeared on the WW Wellness that Works podcast he spoke about his weight loss journey.
Robbie Williams is a WW ambassador and is currently on the new myWW programme – its most customised weight-loss programme ever.
The WW Wellness that Works podcast is a motivational podcast for anyone who wants to build healthy habits – whether that means eating better, moving more, shifting your mindset or all of the above.
What did Robbie Williams have to say about weight loss?
During the episode the ever-entertaining singer and showman, opens up about how his previous relationship with food had affected his mental health, with Robbie commenting that: “I found that normally my history is being overweight and being dreadfully unhappy and then counteracting that with extreme measures and being depressed because there are no nutrients in my body.”
Talking about why he became a part of the WW family, Robbie said: “There is this relentless weight battle and weight issue that I’ve had forever.
“WW phoned up and said, ‘Hey, we want you to be really healthy and have a clean head, and feel good about yourself!’.
“The universe spoke and I listened to it, and I was like, ‘Yes, please let me get on this’. And I started boxing. That was great for my mind”.
When following the WW lifestyle, slimmers focus on choosing healthy and balanced foods and exercising regularly.
The WW website explained: “We will always be the global leader in weight loss, but now WW welcomes anyone who wants to build healthy habits.
“Whether that means eating better, moving more, developing a positive mindset, focusing on weight … or all of the above!”
Robbie frequently shares glimpses into his healthy lifestyle with his 2.1million Instagram followers.
Previously the singer shared a photo of himself tucking into a colourful salad recommended from the WW programme.
He captioned the post: “Whilst travelling it’s easy for me to stay with my @ww.uk plan when I select meals with ZeroPoints.
“My favourite dish is salmon, it’s delicious and has less Smartpoints.”
Another previous post showed the pop star will also use exercise to stay in shape.
Robbie shared a video of him boxing with a personal trainer in the gym.
He wrote: “Getting healthier is always better when you’ve got someone by your side.
“I’m lucky enough to have @Tony_Jeffries and @ww.uk to push me to reach targets and feel better together.”
