Boy George has lost an incredible amount of weight as shown by photos he put up on Twitter on Feb. 17 while he was at a London awards ceremony. The 51-year-old was almost unrecognizable as he arrived on the red carpet Sunday evening at Palace Theatre In London. It's a known fact that he has battled to try to keep the weight off, especially in recent years.
Boy George, whose real name is George Alan O'Dowd, appeared in a suit that based on its large size, he had purchased in heavier days. He wore a beige baker boy hat that was decorated with wool string and buttons. He of course used his usual amount of cosmetics for the glamour look. Boy George chose to do something a bit new as he emphasized his shaped cheekbones with a stubby beard.
The Karma Chameleon star looked like a far cry for his former swollen self. The singer was photographed four years ago when he was on the way to court with a bloated face and a substantial double chin. George was sentenced to 15 months in jail for the false imprisonment and assault of Audun Carlsen. He was just as chubby when he appeared at a DJ club set in 2008.
Boy George evidently has been working on downsizing lately and it sure has paid off. He took to Twitter to give credit to nutritional therapist Amelia Freer this morning for his weight loss, writing: "My secret!" and then posting a link to her site. George offered a little secret into his new daily routine writing:
"Portion control. 5 hour gaps between meals. No coffee or tea, except at meals. Water & fizzy water between meals!"
