Kelly Clarkson had her fans speculating that she was using the weight loss drug Ozempic. That’s how amazing she is looking these days.
But the pop star has revealed to People magazine that she made just two big lifestyle changes to help her lose weight.
The Voice star reveals she has been guided closely by her doctor and also walking lots.
Yep, simply just walking everywhere in her home city of New York has helped the singer lose weight.
Kelly, 41, told People she also takes her kids – River Rose, nine, and son Remington Alexander, seven – with her on her walks.
‘We go walk the dogs a few times at the park. We’ll go for ice cream because my daughter will wear me down. We’ll go make slime and we go to the museum,’ she said.
Kelly credits all their busy family activities for helping her get in shape.
‘Walking in the city is quite the workout. And I’m really into infrared saunas right now. And I just got a cold plunge because everybody wore me down,’ she added.
We totally agree! The Healthy Mummy is a big believer of walking being one of the best exercises to do.
One of the simplest forms of exercise that are often overlooked in a post-pregnancy weight loss program is a brisk walk. It’s easy, and it’s effective. You don’t need a personal trainer, and it is a great alternative to being stuck indoors at a gym. With proper form and intensity, a brisk walk is a proven way to burn calories, tone your body and lose stomach fat.
Secondly Kelly said she decided to listen to her doctor, taking on the advice to cut down on carbs and put herself on a protein heavy diet.
‘I eat a healthy mix. I dropped weight because I’ve been listening to my doctor — for a couple years I didn’t,’ explained the talk show host.
‘And 90 percent of the time I’m really good at it because a protein diet is good for me anyway. I’m a Texas girl, so I like meat — sorry, vegetarians in the world!’
One dietician claims we should all be eating DOUBLE the amount of protein.
Professor Stuart Phillips, an expert in muscle growth from McMaster University in Canada, says the current guidelines are outdated.
Professor Phillips recommends eating at least 1.2g of protein per kg of body weight daily.
“Recommendations are based on studies done a long time ago, and now we have much more accurate ways of measuring and determining protein intake.”
Protein helps to build and repair muscle growth, increase energy, regulate hormones, among many other things.
Protein helps to keep us full as it stays in the stomach longer compared with carbohydrates. Which means less snacking and sugar cravings.
5 protein-rich foods for weight loss
Besides meat there are other foods that are rich in protein as well.
The Healthy Mummy Protein Powder is a simple and effective protein powder, great to consume post-workout or as a snack (on its own or to be used when cooking/baking) to assist with tissue repair, muscle growth and muscle maintenance.
What’s more, our protein powder is FREE from saturated fatty acids and is low in sodium (which is great – as a diet low in sodium is good for reducing blood pressure).
