Love helped me lose weight: Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson

Singer Kelly Clarkson, who is dating Brandon Blackstock, says being in love made it easier for her to lose 18 pounds.

The former American idol winner has shed loads of weight since meeting her fiance because she wanted to look good for him. Blackstock proposed the 30-year-old 'Already Gone' hitmaker in December last year after just nine months of dating, reported Contactmusic.

"I lost 18 pounds. And I think that happens when you fall in love or date someone. If I am going to be messing around, I got to look good," Clarkson said.

She also said that 'there's not a fad diet'. She worked with a trainer and said halving your portions (meals) does wonders.

"I just cut back my portions, I stopped eating late at night, and I work out a little more than I used to, and I literally dropped 18 pounds in a month. I think it happens when you get really busy. But when I am on my off-time, those 18 might come back," Clarkson added.
