Miranda Lambert looked incredible in a form-fitting red evening gown at the 2014 Grammy Awards Jan. 26, where her dramatic 25-pound weight loss turned heads.
Lambert credited a portion-controlled diet and rigorous cardio workouts for her stunning weight loss. "My wife is so hot it's ridiculous," gushed her proud husband, country superstar Blake Shelton.
Miranda recently slammed rumors she underwent weight-loss surgery to lose over 25 pounds, saying eating less and doing circuit-training workouts combined with cardio exercise helped her lose over two dress sizes.
"I did not have surgery to lose weight," she said. "That is ridiculous. I lost my weight the healthy and good-old fashioned way: Watching what I eat and working out with my trainer Bill Crutchfield.
"Smaller portions help. I haven't given up everything! I try to just cut everything in half. We do cardio and a lot of circuit-training."
Lambert first made headlines after debuting her stunning weight loss at the 2013 CMA Awards in November 2013. She said she was shocked at the amount of attention she received for her slim-down, because she didn't think anyone noticed.
“I didn’t know until [the CMA Awards] that people were noticing," said Miranda. "But you want people to notice when you’ve worked hard and feel good. That’s part of the reward. It’s a great motivator."
Lambert said her unhealthy junk-food diet during her twenties resulted in dramatic weight fluctuations, but decided to overhaul her diet and workout regimen when she turned 30 (in November 2013).
"Now it's time to be responsible," she said. "I spent my twenties on a roller coaster — my yo-yo weight, working all the time and partying. I just wanted to get healthier and go into my thirties in the best shape I could be in.”
Miranda will drop her fifth album, Platinum, in June.
