Tom Jones - Sir Tom Jones Sheds 30 Pounds
Veteran singer Sir Tom Jones is sporting a new slimline figure after shedding 30 pounds (13.6 kilograms).
The Sex Bomb hitmaker piled on the pounds over Christmas (10) and, after he struggled to fit into his clothes, Jones decided to embark on a new healthy eating diet.
Jones quit alcohol for two months and ate more fresh food - and the lifestyle overhaul has seen the weight fall off.
He tells Britain's Radio 2, "I was putting too much weight on. I didn't think I was going to and I left the working out for a bit, though I'd keep a check on it.
"But with the Christmas puddings and cakes, before I knew it I was 230lb, which was 30lb more than I should be. I couldn't get into my suits. That's when I thought: 'This has got to stop.'
"The dietitian asked, 'How much do you drink?' I told him I like a bottle of red wine with my dinner. 'To yourself?' he said. What I didn't tell him was I'd started off with a martini, had a cognac and a bottle of champagne too."
