The whole story on how Miranda lost a considerable amount of weight from Daily Mail:
She’s one of country music’s biggest stars. And now Miranda Lambert is also one of the slimmest, after dropping a dress size thanks to a new healthy regime she adopted just in time for her 30th birthday. Miranda, who is married to The Voice judge Blake Shelton, revealed to US Weekly that low-calorie cocktails helped her on the way to shedding the pounds, saying: ‘I refuse to give up drinking!’
Swearing off her favourite ‘beer and Cheetos,’ The Fastest Girl In Town singer has created her own signature cocktail, which she mixes from rum, raspberry lemonade-flavoured Crystal Light and Sprite Zero. ‘I call them Mirandaritas!’ she exclaimed.
After spending her 20s on a series of yo-yo diets, the blonde beauty was motivated by the prospect hitting the bit 3-0. ‘I just wanted to get healthier and go into my 30s in the best possible shape I could be in,’ she told People magazine. ‘It’s all downhill from 30!’
As well as opting for healthier food choices such as green juices, chicken and sweet potatoes, Lambert also advocates portion control, indulging in a little of everything. ‘She eats part of what she normally does,’ a source told US Weekly. ‘It’s working!’
But it hasn’t been an easy transformation; the country crooner has been exercising rigorously, even taking a personal trainer on tour with her. Although she once admitted to hating exercise, Miranda stuck to a 70-minute daily workout designed for her by trainer Bill Crutchfield. Shadowboxing, jogging on the spot, lunges and core-strengthening exercises all played a part in her transformation, while at home on the Oklahoma ranch she shares with Blake, Lambert rides her horses and hunts.
Friends estimate she may have lost as much as 25 lbs, while the star herself claims to have dropped a dress size, saying: ‘People think I lost more, but I’m 5ft 4, so when I lose, I lose everywhere.‘ However, 37-year-old Shelton was quiet when it came to encouraging her to shift the pounds.
When asked why he wasn’t encouraging his wife of two years, he reassured her: ‘I have never had a problem with any way you look. You are beautiful to me at any size and every size.’ However, despite recent rumours of marital problems, it’s clear he’s a big fan of her new look, and took to Twitter on the night of the CMA awards earlier this month, saying: ‘My wife is so hot it’s ridiculous.’
Glowing from the compliments – and the award for Female Vocalist Of The Year – she received at the CMAs, Miranda declared: ‘I might have some Cheetos tonight, just to celebrate!’
