Miranda Lambert debuted incredible weight loss at the CMT Music Awards on Wednesday, June 4. The country music star -- who just released her new album Platinum -- showed off her super-slender figure after she lost 45 pounds. According to the International Business Times, Lambert's "secret" to weight loss was the usual "diet and exercise."

According to the report:

"Lambert, the wife of 'The Voice' judge Blake Shelton, made a choice to live a healthier lifestyle by eating right and opting for more high-fiber, low-calorie food. Additionally, Lambert has also put herself in a challenging fitness regimen and does regular workouts with her trainer."

Lambert hasn't had an easy time keeping her weight steady. In the fall she told E!,"I fluctuate all the time in my weight." Last year, the singer was told that she needed to lose 40 pounds. This was her response:

"I'd think, 'But I'm not obese. I'm only a size 8. I really don't even need to lose 40 pounds. I thought I only needed to lose like 15, but now that you mention it, dang, I do look kind of bad! Thanks for bringing that to my attention, a--hole.'"
"I'm super into giving girls—especially younger girls—a positive body image. I'm just a normal-sized girl, the girl you would probably come over and have a beer with if you lived next door right now, and we'd probably be frying chicken. I don't ever want to stray away from that."
