Kelly Clarkson Reveals The Reason For Her Weight Loss
Kelly Clarkson revealed that a health diagnosis inspired her to lose weight. The 41-year-old singer and talk show host opened up about the wakeup call while speaking with actor Kevin James, who was a guest on The Kelly Clarkson Show on Monday (January 29). As the audience greeted her guest, James told Clarkson that she was “looking great.” She told the King of Queens alum that the reason why she looks great is because she was told she was pre-diabetic. The mother of two said she “wasn’t shocked” by the diagnosis, noting, “I was a tiny bit overweight.” Sharing that her doctors informed her she was “on the borderline,” Clarkson retorted, “Well, I’m not there yet!” However, after two years of not making any changes, she got closer to being a full-on diabetic. She reluctantly decided to “do something about it,” she recalled.
This isn’t the first time the “Stronger” singer has opened up about her recent weight loss. Last month, she told People magazine about her diet and exercise routine. “I eat a healthy mix,” she told the publication. “I dropped weight because I’ve been listening to my doctor,” admitting she didn’t for “a couple of years.” Most of the time, Clarkson is able to stick to her protein diet because it is “good for me anyway.” Citing her Texas origins, Clarkson admitted that’s why she likes meat, adding an apology to the vegetarians in the world.

Additionally, Clarkson’s move to New York City for her talk show relocation has been an added workout for her. Some health care trends that Clarkson also takes part in include infrared saunas and cold plunges. As we previously reported, Mark Wahlberg and Hugh Jackman are among the growing number of celebrities partaking in the longevity trends.
Elsewhere in Kevin James’ talk show appearance, he reacted to the viral meme of him shrugging recently. The actor hilariously commented on the photo going viral, calling it “so stupid” as he shook his head. Despite the hilarious memes that sprouted from the image, James told Clarkson there is no reboot planned of King of Queens after the passing of Jerry Stiller in 2020.
