We’re not sure what Israel Houghton has been doing in terms of his health and fitness, but his fans want to know the secret because they can’t get over how much weight the singer has lost as of late.
The 47-year-old singer stepped out with wife Adrienne in Nashville for the 49th Annual GMA Dove Awards late last week. After sharing a picture of their ensembles for the night, both Israel and Adrienne’s fans showered him with compliments over his lean look. Now, black is indeed a slimming color, and he is going beard-less right now, but it’s clear that he’s also shed some pounds:
It was noticeable enough to fans of the singer, who let the Grammy winner know that he looks everything from “snatched af” to “outstanding”:
“Beautiful pic!!! You’re looking slimmer and younger”
“Ok now!!!! You better shed those pounds!”
“You guys are looking amazing! Israel your transformation with your weight is outstanding!”
“My boy is losing weight @israelhoughton 👀”
“You look amazing 👀 😍”
“Skinny Minnie’s! Ya’ll look great”
“Y’all lookin snatched af! You just betta stunt”
“Looking good Israel @israelhoughton keep up the weight losss”
“Okay now 😍 you look like you’re shrinking (in a good way) and Ade looks stunning as always”
“Wow you guys look great & congrats Israel on the weight loss😍”
“Wow!!!! Israel lost so much weight!!! Congrats on his weight loss journey”
“Okay what’s the weight loss secret ? I need to lose like 15 pounds.”
Israel has actually been slimming down over the last few months. Back in September while promoting his new album, The Road to Demaskus, you could see the change in his look:
While he hasn’t spoken just yet about what has helped him shed some pounds, he and Adrienne have slimmed down in the past. When they prepared to wed back in 2016, they worked with popular trainer Massy Arias to get down for their big day.
“It was a two-month process. Adrienne lost 22 lbs., and Israel—who was doing it with her—lost 25 lbs,” Arias said that year, noting they thoroughly cleaned up their diet to make it happen.
“No alcohol and no dairy allowed,” Arias shared. “[They lost the weight] by eating the right food, eating the right amount of food, and just making sure we were hitting our goals every time.”
Perhaps the habits he picked up while working with Arias he returned to over these last few months. Whatever he’s doing, Israel should keep it up because he looks great!
