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!
