In today’s music industry, a few pounds over the skinny standard can spark a lot of controversy, Kelly Clarkson is one of the stars that had to put up with constant weight scrutiny, although her voice and skills are remarkable. The 30-year-old decided to do something about it. In six months, Kelly Clarkson lost 30 pounds!
Not many people manage to have most of their lives panned out at 30. Kelly Clarkson seems to have done something right, because she entered her thirties with a brand new bod, a new relationship and from what it looks like a whole new take on life. For the once “American Idol” winner life at 30 seems pretty good.
Us Magazine had a talk with a source close to the two-time Grammy winner about her recent weight loss. The secret, apart from exercise and a diet plan, seems to be getting a new boyfriend. Kelly Clarkson is dating Brandon Blackstock, and he is mainly the reason she has been having such a positive attitude about life.
A source says that “Brandon is the first guy who ever tell her how beautiful and sexy she is. She wants to look good for him”. And Kelly confesses in the July issue of Redbook magazine she’s never been happier than with Bradon.
Us Magazine’s sources say that Kelly Clarkson now “feels better about herself than she ever has”. Obviously losing 30 pounds in six months and being in love can do that to a woman.
Apparently, the singer decided to lose weight not necessarily because she wanted to look good for her boyfriend. A source tells Us Magazine that “she saw how heavy she was and she didn’t like it. That’s when she decided to really get into shape”. And so she did.
Kelly Clarkson began a weight loss program that combined training and portion control diet. “I do cardio. I run. I strength-train using my own body weight” explains the former “American Idol” winner.
Kelly Clarkson told Redbook magazine for her it’s all about health. “Really, what I try to instill in my fans is to be healthy and happy. I have no desire to be super-skinny”.
