“I don’t work out. I mean, I should, [for my] heart and stuff. I do wine instead,” Clarkson joked. “Honestly, it’s the same stuff you eat; I just use different ingredients,” she continued. “I still have, like, cake. Like, literally, I still have everything the same as I did, even, like, fried chicken, but I use, like, casoid flour, tapioca, or almond flour. And I use, like, non-hormone chicken.” 

4. She says too many people care about the outside rather than the inside.

“No one actually cares about your health. They just care about aesthetics,” Clarkson said. “It’s when I’m fat that I’m happy. People think, Oh, there’s something wrong with her. She’s putting on weight. I’m like, ‘Oh, no! I’m sorry, but that represents happiness in my emotional world.’ For me, when I’m skinny is usually when I’m not doing well.”

5. It was about health for her.

"Here’s the best part, y’all. It’s not even the weight. I mean, I know the industry loves the weight gone, but for me it wasn’t really the weight, for me it was [that] I’m not on my medicine anymore,” she said on Today. “My blood work came back and I haven’t been on my medicine since, like, February.”

6. She says clean eating isn't cheap. 

“Honestly, I’m going to be real with you. It’s really expensive to do. I wish the government would really back humanity on this because it’s really, really hard to find [ingredients],” she said. “I was poor growing up; there’s no way my family could have afforded this. It helps out so much with health. Like I said, my autoimmune disease is, like, gone. And I’m, like, 37 pounds lighter!”

7. It's not about the calories. 

The American Idol alum talked GMOS saying, “It’s like understanding food and understanding what we do to our food, like spraying and pesticides and genetically-modified and like hormones we pump in and it’s also about how pharmaceuticals have kind of like ruined our body, our flora, like everything and so, I don’t really take medicine unless I absolutely need it.”
