US recording artist Ne-Yo has revealed his abs in a social media post - crediting veganism for his healthy physique.
The star ditched animal products last year, after watching plant-based documentary What The Health.
The singer, songwriter, record producer, dancer, and actor, whose full name is Shaffer Chimere Smith, said: "I have to give a lot of credit to What The Health... I ain't eating none of that s*** no more.
His new Instagram story - which was shared by bet.com shows the star posing topless in the mirror.
He wrote: "Me telling myself that if I wanna keep this stomach I better not eat this bag of chips right now.
His dilemma over the chips may not have been his first.
When Ne-Yo initially went plant-based, he was concerned that it would be tough.
But he was committed, saying: "We're gonna make it work! Because it means something. It means saving your life."
