Lauren Alaina 2011

American Idol’s Season 10 runner-up Lauren Alaina shares her weight-loss secrets after dropping a whopping 25 pounds off her frame in just five months. The star seems to have followed in the footsteps of some other fellow former Idols, like Weight Watchers spokeswoman Jennifer Hudson and super svelte mentor Carrie Underwood.

"Changing my diet was the big thing," Alaina tells Us Weekly. "I had to learn correct portion control."
To help her with that, Lauren reveals her diet secrets, admitting that she initially used the meal delivery service Sunfare to transition into a high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet.
After Alaina’s Wildflower album debuted at No. 2, she adapted the pre-planned meal service’s formula to her lifestyle. "I eat an egg-white omelet for breakfast, shrimp and veggies for lunch and chicken with asparagus for dinner."
She’s strict on her diet and fitness regime, but it is paying off! She does a daily workout of crunches, push-ups and “lots of squats,” which has led the singer to a size-2. And she’s still going! "I'm 10 pounds from my goal -- almost there! I wear size small and extra-small now!" says Alaina.
