Of course "Xtina weight loss" is the number six most-popular trending search term on Yahoo right now. With spring here, folks have noticed when stars like Christina Aguilera hit the red carpet noticeably thinner, and they want to know how she did it. Well, now we've got a few more of her weight-loss secrets than we had a mere 24 hours ago.
"It's amazing what having some personal time can do, not only for the body but also for the mind and the spirit. She has been trying new types of foods and exploring new methods of exercise. Not for diet or weight, but more for her mind and well being and overall sense of good health," a source told People about Aguilera's slimmer, 2013 frame.
Well, it's not much in terms of details, but it's something.
As for this Cleveland Pop Culture Examiner, I am over the moon that I weighed in 14 pounds less this Friday than I did nearly two months ago, thank the good Lord. Like Snooki, who provided plenty more details about her weight loss than Aguilera, it helped to cut calories and workout:
I've fallen in love with running on the treadmill, and that MyFitnessPal.com free app that encourages me to stay within the 1600 calories or so per day that's good for my height, gender, and level of activity. I love it when I close out a day wherein it makes it so easy to track your food intake and exercise on your phone, iPad, Mac or laptop or whatever -- and it gives you that "If every day were like today, you'd weigh 155 pounds in 5 weeks," or whatever your weight-loss rate happens to be.
Heck, even Beyonce's diet tips, workout regime and eating plans have given us more details than have leaked thus far about Aguilera:
But, it's understandable. Aguilera doesn't want to focus on the "noise" of the same folks who said she was too skinny when she was really thin, or those who said she was too fat during "The Voice" days. And she's crediting more time to helping her in the weight loss department.
"Without the grueling production hours, Christina can focus on her music and her son and most important on herself," a source told People.
Yes, more flexible schedules can help, along with resources to workout how and when you like. This reporter is grateful that her "gifts have made room" for her -- to lose extra poundage and more -- just in time for the warmer months and blessed activity.
