Kelly Clarkson Reveals Using Weight Loss Drug to Aid Physical Transformation

Kelly Clarkson Opens Up About Using Weight Loss Medication

Kelly Clarkson, the beloved singer and host of “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” recently made headlines for opening up about her physical transformation. In a candid moment on her show, Clarkson admitted to using a weight loss drug to help shed pounds, a topic she had previously been hesitant to discuss.

During an episode of her show, Clarkson shared her health journey with her audience and guest, Whoopi Goldberg, who also spoke about her experience with weight loss medication. Clarkson revealed that she had initially not planned on sharing this aspect of her life but decided to be transparent about her own journey with weight loss medication.

“I hadn’t planned on sharing this side of my life, but I too was prescribed a weight loss med after troubling bloodwork,” Clarkson shared.

The singer went on to explain that her doctor had been urging her to try the medication for two years before she finally agreed. Clarkson clarified that the medication she was taking was not the commonly assumed one, Ozempic, but rather a different drug that aided in breaking down sugar in her body, something her body was struggling to do on its own.

“My doctor chased me for like 2 years. And I was like, ‘No, I’m afraid of it. I already have thyroid problems.’ Everybody thinks it’s Ozempic, it’s not. It’s something else. It’s something that aids in helping break down the sugar. My body doesn’t do it right,” Clarkson explained.

This revelation came after Clarkson had previously attributed her weight loss to a more active lifestyle in New York City and a protein-heavy diet. However, it seems that the weight loss medication played a significant role in her transformation as well.

Clarkson shared a wake-up call moment she experienced after filming a concert in Los Angeles, where she didn’t recognize herself in the footage and realized she had reached a weight of 203 pounds at her heaviest. This moment spurred her to take action and explore other options to support her weight loss journey.

Kelly Clarkson is the latest celebrity to join the ranks of those who have been open about their use of weight loss medication, including Oprah Winfrey, Rebel Wilson, Heather Gay, Tracy Morgan, and others. By sharing her story, Clarkson has joined a group of influential figures who have been candid about their struggles with weight and their journey to a healthier lifestyle.

As Clarkson continues to inspire fans with her music and her show, her openness about her weight loss journey provides a relatable and honest perspective on the challenges many people face when it comes to achieving their health goals. By sharing her experiences, Clarkson reminds us that everyone has their own path to wellness, and it’s important to find what works best for each individual.
