Kelly Clarkson’s recent weight loss was sparked by a warning from her doctors.

“I was told I was pre-diabetic. That was literally what happened. I wasn’t shocked. I was a tiny bit overweight, so I wasn’t shocked,” the Grammy winner explained on The Kelly Clarkson Show earlier this week.

“But they were like, ‘You’re pre-diabetic. You’re right on the borderline,’” she went on, speaking to her guest Kevin James.

“I was like, ‘But I’m not there yet.’ And then I waited two years and then did, however, move into the — I was like, ‘OK, I’ll do something about it.’”

Earlier this month, the singer, 41, revealed how she shed kilos amid speculation she may have relied on weight-loss medications like Ozempic.

“I dropped weight because I’ve been listening to my doctor,” she told People, admitting that for “a couple years,” she “didn’t.”

“And 90 percent of the time, I’m really good at it because a protein diet is good for me anyway,” Clarkson said of following Dr. Steven R. Gundry’s Plant Paradox Diet.

“I’m a Texas girl, so I like meat — sorry, vegetarians in the world!” she added, making sure to note that she “still splurge[s]” on sweets every now and then.

The American Idol winner also shared that moving to Manhattan after her divorce from Brandon Blackstock was finalised in March 2022 has helped her stay more active, as “walking in the city is quite the workout.”

Clarkson — who shares daughter River Rose, 9, and son Remington “Remy” Alexander, 7, with her ex-husband, 47 — has not shied away from discussing her fluctuating weight over the years.

Clarkson said the weight loss came about because she had been “listening to her doctor.”

In October 2017, she admitted she experienced suicidal thoughts when she was at her skinniest but that “no one cared because, aesthetically, [she made] sense.”

The following June, the songstress credited her weight loss to a diet changeup that included implementing organic and non-GMO foods.

“I did it for this autoimmune disease that I had, and I had a thyroid issue, and now all my levels are back up,” she shared at the time.

Last November, Clarkson and Jenna Bush Hager bonded over being “chubby” children.

“I love losing weight, but here’s the thing,” the former explained during their chat. “Jeans are so hard when you have a butt and a smaller waist.”
