Kelly Clarkson has been teased about her weight constantly, but now shes dropped almost 40 pounds.

 

She gives the credit to Steven Gundrys book The Plant Paradox: The Hidden Dangers in "Healthy" Foods That Cause Disease and Weight Gain.

 

The singer also says the diet has alleviated a thyroid condition.

I know the industry loves the weight gone, but I mean, for me, it wasn't really the weight. For me it was like, I'm not on my medicine anymore.

Clarkson recently told the Today show, "I had an autoimmune disease and a thyroid problem that started in like 2006. I read this book...it might not work for you but it worked wonderfully. Here's the best part, ya'll, it's not even the weight- I mean, I know the industry loves the weight gone, but I mean, for me, it wasn't really the weight. For me it was like, I'm not on my medicine anymore. My bloodwork came back and I haven't been on my medicine since like February."

 

The American Idol star still indulges in fried chicken and cake, but makes substitutions like adding almond flour and tapioca. 

One of the negatives to the diet is that it can be really expensive.

 

Clarkson said, "I wish the government would really back humanity on this, 'cause it's really hard to find. I was poor growing up and there's no way my family could have afforded this. It helped out so much with health. My autoimmune disease is like, gone and I'm like 37 pounds lighter in my pleather."
