Appearing on reality shows, it does a body good!

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!

wow.. 25 pounds!


looks better before. Such a shame.


She was just perfect and beautiful the way she was! Being just "skin and bone" is not healthy at all!!! Not a good thing.


Not sure if she's really a size 2, but if she IS a size 2, WTH does she need to lose 10 more pounds. That's crazy. She looks great, not unhealthy, but if you're a size two, don't lose MORE weight. Her voice is amazing, only one that gave me goosebumps that season. She reminds me of Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks, vocally.


I loved Alaina just the way she was and thats what made her beautiful....her curves, but in this works weight means everything...and frankly its sad


Weight is the last thing that we should notice on a person..Look at whitney from America's next top model cycle 10 she was the first plus size model to win the show..size is just a number it doesn't mean anything


I really liked the fact that she wasn't the skinniest of them all. Another reason why I adore Adele. She's always been big, and yes she did lose some weight when she hit her "heaviest" point, but at that point I think she should have because it was getting to the point where it was unhealthy. However, Lauren was the perfect size, she didn't need to lose any weight.


This is really kind of sad. She was a beautiful young lady the way she was. No wonder all of our young girls have this horrible self image. Its a crock of bs. We are women, we should have some curves & softness....not be bony as hell.


She didnt even need to lose weight in the first place... If it was her choice than thats something different. I liked her just the way she was.


OMG, she was fine the way she was. Why this need to be so thin. I don't think it's a healthy image for young girls today.

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.
