The original American Idol, Kelly Clarkson has revealed how she has lost over a stone in weight since falling for her boyfriend Brandon Blackstock. Kelly says that falling in love has made her want to take care of herself and always look good for her man.
Clarkson explained, “I lost 18 pounds and I think that happens when you fall in love or date someone. If I'm going to be messing around, I gotta look good. There's not a fad diet. I was working with a trainer, and she said, 'You'd be amazed the amount of weight you can drop by halving your portions. I know it sounds crazy, but do it for two weeks and watch what happens.”
She added, “I just cut back my portions, I stopped eating late at night, and I work out a little more than I used to, and I literally dropped 18 pounds in a month. I think it happens when you get really busy. But when I'm on my off-time – girl, those 18 might come back.” Kelly also insisted that she would not resort to extreme measures to become stupidly skinny.
Clarkson added, “I'm not willing to do that. I'm willing to work a little bit because I want to be a healthy individual – which I always have been. I've put on weight, but that's just what I'm happy with at that moment. Brandon and I both have bikes on the back of the bus, and we both love the outdoors. Once your lifestyle becomes more active, obviously you drop weight.”
Kelly Clarkson recently stated that she does not believe that she has changed at all since she won the first ever season of American Idol. Kelly has also admitted that she is extremely happy with Brandon Blackstock and cannot wait to marry him.
