Young love will do a lot of things to a person. It can make you crazy in a way, but it can also bring out the best in you. For Kelly Clarkson, it brought out a healthier, more slender version of herself.
“I think that happens when you fall in love or date someone,” says the singer. “If I’m going to be messing around, I gotta look good.”
On how she dropped the weight she explains, “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.’ 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!”
Clarkson seems like she doesn’t let her weight define her and she doesn’t seem to be obsessed with the numbers, which I like. She says she’s “not willing” to do extreme diets in order to lose weight.
She takes a more rational approach to fitness saying that if you keep active, you’ll lose weight. Obviously.
“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,” she says.
