The winner of the first season of American Idol (2002) has achieved a lot in her career. Right after becoming the American Idol, Clarkson was handed a record deal with RCA. Her first single, A Moment Like This, became the country’s best-selling single. 

As uncle Ben once said, “With great power comes great responsibility”, Kelly’s increase in fame brought an increase in her busyness. She started making the best single one after another. Most of the time, Kelly was touring and doing concerts.

In this busyness, she lost track of her health and ended up gaining a huge amount of weight. The increasing weight was slowing kelly down. So, she got rid of extra 40 lbs. However, that wasn’t it. There was more to the story. Find out.

Why did Kelly Lose Weight?

It is true that weight was slowing Clarkson down but it wasn’t the reason she lost weight. It was a part of the problem. Read in Kelly’s own words, “I had an autoimmune disease and a thyroid problem that started in 2006”. 

Autoimmune disease happens when your body fails to differentiate between your cells and foreign cells and as a result ends up attacking the normal cells. Clarkson continued, “I know the industry loves the weight gone, but for me, it wasn’t really the weight. For me, it was ‘I’m not on my medicine anymore‘”.

Music Industry is a Confusing Place

A lot of us might think that Kelly had faced a lot of problems in the industry because of her increasing weight. However, that wasn’t really the case. In fact, it was quite the opposite. Kelly was often criticized for her thin body (of course in her earlier years).

Clarkson recalled the days as, “I felt more pressure from people actually when I was thin when I was really thin, and not super healthy because I just was worn out“. However, as Clarkson’s weight increased, such complaints ceased to be received. In fact, now her gaining weight was becoming a problem.

Now, let’s turn to the main question of the article, How did Kelly Lose Weight? After struggling with the autoimmune disease and gaining weight for a while, Kelly started searching for answers. Answers that would solve the problem of increasing weight.

To sum up Clarkson’s weight loss, here is what she said, “I’m not working out!” Kelly said. “I literally read this book, It’s called The Plant Paradox. It’s basically about how we cook our food, non-GMO, no pesticides, eating really organic“.

Kelly eats organic food whenever it is possible. She is not a fan of workouts so she gives much attention to her diet plan. In this way, Kelly has not only been successful in losing 40 pounds but has also kept them away successfully.

Since she cut lose extra pounds, Kelly has maintained her lifestyle in the same way. She avoids eating out as much as possible. Kelly has also limited her drinking habits.

Kelly’s Response to the Body-Shamers

Clarkson’s following reply was enough for haters, “If you gauge your life on what other people think, you’re going to be in a constant state of panic trying to please everyone”. She continued,  “People should just concentrate on their own lives and their own health and their own happiness, and whatever that looks like for you, be happy with it”.

  2. She has no self control, just like all other fat people. “She isn’t a fan of workouts” <– that's another way of saying she's lazy.

  5. I think she is a beautiful woman. Weight can play a big part for a healthy life. I found that out when I lost 25 pounds. I feel better with more energy and a better attitude.
    I simply gave up alcohol and limited my intake of carbs. Fairly easy. Because I had more energy I started to walk and am doing 20,000 steps a day. It doesn’t take up much of my time and is a real mind pleaser because I feel great.
