Isn’t falling in love supposed to make you get confortable with someone and gain weight? While that may be the case for many, American Idol winner, Kelly Clarkson is not one of those people. In fact, Clarkson has been shedding the pounds, and she credits that all to her fiance!
Newly engaged Kelly Clarkson is continuing to drop the pounds, and she credits her recent 18 pound weight loss to her fiance, Brandon Blackstock. How so? In the new issue of Cosmopolitan, Clarkson explained: “If I’m going to be messing around, I gotta look good,” but added that she is not willing to go to extremes to lose weight either.
While being in love definitely helps Kelly, it’s not only Brandon that has helped her lose weight. “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,” Kelly gushed.
Another contributing factor that Kelly credits for keeping the weight off? Her super busy schedule! “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 continued to Cosmopolitan Magazine.
