It’s one thing to lose weight on your own. It’s a whole other thing to shed pounds with the whole world watching. But that’s exactly what Miranda Lambert did. The country singer, age 30, recently dropped an estimated 45 pounds, according to Us Weekly magazine. This new look comes just in time for the release of her latest album, “Platinum”, which dropped June 3rd.
How did she do it? With a little help and a lot of common sense.
Lambert tells Us Weekly that she decided to lose weight after a few unflattering photos of her were picked up by tabloids. (You know how you feel when a friend tags a bad photo of you on Facebook? Imagine that, only way, way worse!) So she tried Nutrisystem to jumpstart her diet but eventually decided that following a balanced diet and increasing her exercise routine were ultimately the right options for her.
Specifically, she’s eating more high fiber foods, like fruits and vegetables, grilled chicken and nuts and limiting high-calorie less healthy favorites like cheetos and fried chicken. She’s also paying attention to portion size, basically cutting her old meals in half.
But it’s her workout routine that’s our favorite part of the story: According to Us Weekly, Miranda is putting herself through the paces without a trainer, doing her own workout of running, walking, stairs, and more. (Like the rest of us, she knows what to do—it’s just a matter of doing it!) Plus, she does this all while jamming out to Britney Spears!
That’s right. Even Miranda Lambert can’t help but move a little bigger, harder, and faster with Britney coming out of the speakers. As she told the magazine: “If I put on Britney, I can picture Britney’s body, and I’m like, ‘Oh! Faster!’”
Still, Lambert’s songs are great for the gym. Our 5 favorites:
