Singer Amy Sheppard reveals how cutting back on alcohol has changed her life: ‘I feel happy in general’

Amy Sheppard has revealed how cutting back on alcohol has helped her live her best life.

The pop singer, 32, admitted there is some pressure in the music industry to drink but she’s felt so much better since reducing alcohol.

‘I was less tired and I didn’t get sick… I just felt happy in general and I wasn’t grumpy,’ she told The Daily Telegraph.

The Geronimo hitmaker added how catching Covid earlier this year led to some self-reflection about the state of her health.

Amy realised she needed to be at the top of her game to go on tour and that meant significantly cutting back on alcoholic drinks.

‘You can get excited and have drink after drink and not be aware of just how much you’re having. I set myself limits of two or four,’ she said.

It comes after Amy campaigned for body positivity by joining forces with Body Image Movement’s Taryn Brumfitt for her latest film, Embrace: Kids.

She said it was ‘really important’ to join the campaign because growing up she was taught you had to look a certain way to be worthy.

Speaking to the Herald Sun, she added: ‘It’s taken me a long time to work it out and really start to feel my worth in who I am as a person rather than just how I look.’

Sheppard will speak about her ‘light bulb moment’, which was the decision to post an unfiltered bikini picture to Instagram.

Amy is outspoken about body positivity and recently hit back at trolls after being told her cellulite ‘isn’t normal’ and ‘shouldn’t be normalised’. 

She has shared several examples of offensive comments she’d received on TikTok alongside the soundbite: ‘Am I going to cry? Am I about to cry? No… okay.’
