As we’ve discussed in the past, few YouTubers openly talk about male body image; but when they do, it tends to be a fairly serious issue. And this can definitely be said for Sammy Albon, who just opened up about a recent health scare that landed him in A&E.
“What happened is part of a bigger problem; and if I talk to you guys about it, I feel like it is some sort of therapy for me,” admits Sammy. “But also, if some of you guys find yourself in a similar situation, it might be helpful.”
Sammy collapsed of exhaustion after a photoshoot with his twin brother Niki; and the general consensus was his diet is partially at fault. Given that Niki and Sammy have a history of being overweight, Sammy puts his problem down to what he refers to as the “weight loss hangover”; a mixture of ongoing hang-ups that can come from shedding as much weight as he and his brother did.
Watch Sammy’s honest discussion below.
Tight clothes, constant awareness of how you look and issues with food are just a few of the things Sammy refers to as a part of the “hangover”. But with things coming to a head recently, he is willing to acknowledge that “Even though you’re young, you aren’t invincible.”
“There’s nothing more eye-opening than laying on the A&E table to make you realise ‘Sh*t, I need to take care of myself'”.
We’re really proud of Sammy for opening up in a way that few have done before; and hope that his audience can also gain some inspiration from his honesty!
