Dan + Shay’s Shay Mooney has been looking a lot slimmer lately, and he’s just opened up about the secret to his weight loss. The singer recently took to his Instagram Story to thank fans for the all the positive feedback he’s been receiving on his new look, and he explained that it’s the result of adopting a healthier lifestyle. “Been a little over 5 months I believe and I’m down almost 50lbs,” he shares. “For those asking: Eating clean/not drinking alcohol and walking 7 miles a day. And some weights. That’s it!” He adds, “I completely changed my lifestyle and I’ve literally never felt better physically, mentally, and spiritually,” noting, “If you’re looking for a sign…Love y’all.” Shay’s explanation came after he posted a slimmed down photo with his son, prompting comments from several of his country star friends, including Morgan Wallen who wrote “Man done got skinny on em!!!,” and Chris Lane who added a fire emoji.
