Mick Thomson has obviously undergone a drastic weight loss in the last few years. While some fans praise him for taking care of his body, there are others who are worried about his health because they think his transformation is unhealthy. Mick Thomson has not yet addressed the discussions about his weight loss.
Mick Thomson is widely known (and considered very cool) for being one of two guitarists of the heavy metal band Slipknot. In the band, they refer to him as number 7. He came to be in the band through his association with the founding Slipknot members Anders Colsefni, Donnie Steele, and Paul Gray, all of whom he knew from their mutual involvement in the death metal band Body Pit. He joined the band in 1996 and now that the drummer Joey Jordison and Craig Jones have quit the band, he is the second longest-serving member of Slipknot.
He is also probably the most loved member of the band and his fans are all over him all the time. In the last few years, it's his weight loss that they are all over. They can't help but bring his physical transformation every single time he comes up. While some think he looks cooler and scarier with his new physique, others are concerned for his health. Let's discuss Mick Thomson's weight loss!

Mick had long been a heavy-set person and his followers had come to associate his weight with his stage persona of being d*monic and scary. They loved him the way he was and never complained about him being too fat. They never impertinently suggested he embark on a weight loss journey. In some ways, it seemed like he had managed to escape the ridicule and mockery that comes with being anything less than a slim person in the entertainment industry.
It sounds good that people are not as fixated on Mick Thomson's weight as they tend to be on any other 'fat' celebrities because his weight highlights his stage persona and it is. But he no longer could enjoy the privilege of not having fans on his a*s about his body after he underwent a weight loss because now whenever he comes up, all the discussion they have is about his physique and his weight fluctuation.
The musician has gotten extremely slim since 2021 and it has not gone unnoticed by his fans. They have not been able to ignore his new body either because of how noticeable, dramatic, and significant his weight loss is. And now all they do is speculate about the drastic physical transformation Mick has had on social media. They wonder how and why he did it. A few of them even worry that his losing weight has come from an unhealthy place.
Mick Thomson's Fans Are Worried That His Weight Loss Is Unhealthy!
Mick Thomson looks fine after his weight loss transformation but some fans of his are convinced that he is not fine after all. They are of the opinion that the drastic fluctuation in his weight he underwent looked unhealthy and so, they are concerned for his health.

Looks more like cancer than weight loss for health.

However, fans who believe that Thomson's losing weight is unhealthy are very few in number. The majority of his followers love his new look and physique for him. As one of them said, they didn't think it was possible for Mick to look any cooler but he has surpassed all levels of coolness after his weight loss. They appreciate him for taking care of his health and putting effort into fitness, and they also want to know how he managed to get so slim in such a short amount of time.
As for what happened, a lot of his followers seemed to know that Mick Thomson had begun to lose weight since he got married to someone who is essentially a fitness freak. Apparently, it was his marathon runner wife who rubbed off on him and encouraged him to develop healthy diet habits, and inspired him to be consistent with his workout schedule. This eventually led to his weight loss. A Redditor commented,
I'm sure it has a lot to do with his wife. Stacy is a huge fitness endorser, always running, eating healthy, that sort of stuff. And not only that, he finally had surgery on his spine/neck. Considering that, I'm sure he's been working out or doing some cardio/eating better with Stacy.
There are also rumors that Mick Thomson quit drinking due to which he lost a decent chunk of weight. However, those rumors have never been verified. He has never addressed the fans' curiosity regarding his weight loss.
