Kelly Clarkson has been stunning fans since joining the coaching panel on The Voice earlier this year. However, it's more than her bubbly energy and sassy remarks that have been impressing viewers of the popular NBC series. According to a recent report from OK! Magazine, the former American Idol winner has recently lost a whopping 20 pounds and is said to be "absolutely thrilled" with her new body.
Hollywood Life is reporting that Clarkson has been eating a lot healthier lately and is still enjoying all the food she loves but with a healthier twist.
Allegedly, Kelly's weight loss is down to her cutting out soda and processed foods as well as learning how to prepare "healthier versions of her favorite Southern dishes so she can still enjoy the food she loves."
According to OK! Magazine's report, the secret to Kelly's 20-pound weight loss also includes a lot of portion control, which has given her a whole lot more energy lately.
The publication recently claimed that the new Voice coach, who has two children, still enjoys the same meals but is now "eating only half of what's on her plate and saving the rest for lunch the next day."
"Kelly can't believe how well it works," the source continued of the star's healthy new lifestyle cutting down the amount she used to eat
The insider added that she still enjoys a glass of wine but has cut down to just one or two glasses when she's in the mood for an alcoholic drink.
Clarkson hasn't confirmed the amount of weight she's allegedly lost and hasn't spoken publicly about her diet herself, though the star has opened up about her weight multiple times in the past.
Just last year, she claimed that she was "miserable" when she was thinner at the start of her career, shortly after winning the very first season of American Idol in 2002.
"When I was really skinny I wanted to kill myself. I was miserable, like inside and out, for four years of my life. But no one cared, because aesthetically you make sense," Kelly explained to Attitude in 2017.
