Kelly Clarkson 'Tones Up' For Love

A slimmed down and shaped up Kelly Clarkson shares her new diet and not-so-secret workout trick: love.

People Magazine recently reported that Clarkson blames her boyfriend Brandon Blackstock, a Nashville based talent manager, for making her lose her creative edge, “I'm trying to write a tough song and it is coming out like butterflies and rainbows."

Though his influence might have the ultimate effect of softening her music, it’s certainly helped to harden her abs. Give and take, people.

She says she’s increased her workouts and decreased her calorie intake – and it’s pretty much all for him. “I have a boyfriend, and if I'm being completely honest, no one likes to be not toned when you are dating someone."

Both parties are on the same fitness kick, but different workout schedules. "We did that once and I didn't like huffing and puffing… I didn't like looking all red and gross, so I don't do that." Sweat isn’t pretty. Keep the ruse alive as long as possible girl.

Clarkson’s shaped up physique made its debut at the Billboard Music Awards where she preformed her new single.

Her new show Duets premieres tonight on ABC.

Kelly seems really happy, and we’re sincerely hoping that this isn’t just another one of those fad diets.
