In early 2009, Adam Lambert won over viewers on American Idol.
But that wasn't the singer's biggest victory to date.
In a new interview with OK! Weekly, Lambert opens up about his life-changing victory over obesity.
“I lost probably about forty pounds about ten years ago,” he said. “When I was in high school, I had bad eating habits. I ate a bunch of crap – a bunch of fast food and stuff. I learned more about what’s healthy and what’s not healthy. I used a little bit of self-control.”
After shedding the excess weight, how did Lambert feel?
“Oh, a hundred times better. Physically I felt better, but I also had better self-esteem and body image.”
Lambert added that he lacks the self-discipline to incorporate workouts into his daily routine, but we're not too worried about him. You'd be surprised how many calories can be burned by gyrating around on stage.
