Kelly Clarkson recently opened up about her recent weight loss journey during an episode of “The Kelly Clarkson Show.” The singer shared that a health scare motivated her to make some changes in her life.
Clarkson revealed that she received news that she was pre-diabetic, which was a significant wake-up call for her. Although she acknowledged feeling slightly overweight, the diagnosis prompted her to take action. After waiting for two years, she felt it was time to address the issue.
In a conversation with People magazine, Clarkson attributed her weight loss to lifestyle adjustments she made after relocating from Los Angeles to New York. She mentioned that the active lifestyle in the city, along with using infrared saunas, contributed to her fitness journey.
When it comes to her diet, Clarkson explained that she follows a healthy balance and listens to her doctor’s recommendations, especially since a protein-rich diet suits her well. As a proud Texan, she admitted her fondness for meat but apologized to vegetarians.
In previous interviews, Clarkson discussed her weight loss journey and how changes in her diet helped alleviate a thyroid condition. She stressed that her primary focus was on her health rather than just shedding pounds.
Despite facing scrutiny from the media regarding her weight, Clarkson emphasized the importance of being valued for her personality and talents rather than her appearance. She reflected on her experience as a coach on “The Voice,” where she felt appreciated for her authenticity and ability to connect with people.
Like many women in the entertainment industry, Clarkson has faced challenges related to body image and societal expectations. However, she remains committed to promoting self-acceptance and authenticity.
