‘American Idol’s’ Lauren Alaina credits diet change for weight loss

Lauren rocked her “Idol” look.

If you have seen Lauren Alaina out during much of her publicity tour as of late, you will notice one major difference between the singer now and where she was on “American Idol” this past spring — she’s lost a considerable amount of weight.

Just how much much did she lose? The reigning runner-up tells Us Weekly (which has an updated photo) that in total, she has dropped 25 pounds — and eating a bit healthier is a big reason why:

“Changing my diet was the big thing. I had to learn correct portion control.”

Even during the show, Lauren insisted that she wanted to lose some weight — but said that it was not because she was feeling pressured by any outside influence to do so. (Rather, she just wanted to live a healthier life — and the “Idol” team tends to have great connections in this regard.)

Are you happy for Lauren?
