Appearing on reality shows, it does a body good!

A day after Ricki Lake showed off her newly-trim figure, courtesy of a stint on Dancing with the Stars, American Idol runner-up Lauren Alaina has opened up about the steps she's taken to shed 25 pounds in just a couple months.

What's the secret?

It looks like Lauren Alaina's debut album is not the only thing doing well!

"Changing my diet was the big thing," Alaina tells Us Weekly. "I had to learn correct portion control... I eat an egg-white omelet for breakfast, shrimp and veggies for lunch and chicken with asparagus for dinner."

Exercise is also key. Alaina enjoys daily workouts that include crunches, pushups and squats. She's down to a size two and she has 10 more pounds to go until she reaches her goal.

Go get 'em, girl!

She is not doing it to be "skinny". She is doing it to be healthy. Being heavy isn't healthy. I've been doing the same as her and trying to get to a healthy weight for my height. I'm not doing it for anyone but myself and to be healthy. I believe she's doing the same. If she wants to be healthy let her. She's not starving herself to look good. She's working hard for it. Saying she isn't a good role model anymore because she's not heavier is bull. Yes kids shouldn't think that being skin and bones is right but they shouldn't think being over weight is either. It's unhealthy and can lead to bad things as an adult.

I thought she looked better before. She was a rold model to children who are curvier. But when you're 16, I guess it's all about being skinny and hot and catching the boys eyes. And she definitely doesn't look like a size 2, but whatever makes her happy. I am disappointed though.

Lauren was one of my favorites on American Idol. Not because she is a Georgia native, but because I use to see her out a lot at different restaurants with her family. She visited quite a few places. Check out a few of them here. http://tinyurl.com/Eat-Free-3

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
