Christina Aguilera revealed a dramatically slimmed-down figure at The Voice US launch on the weekend - the 32-year-old wore a pink Alaia mini-dress to show off her much smaller frame, and looked more like the Xtina of the Genie In A Bottle days.
Insiders say she worked hard at weight training with a personal trainer, got really into yoga and subscribed to a meal delivery service that restricts her diet to 1,600 calories a day (that costs NZ $1,800 for a month of food) in order to drop upwards of 15 kilos in less than six months.
"She's making herself a priority, trying new exercises and trying things she loves and enjoys rather than stuff to just 'lose weight.' This is really from the inside out," a source told US.
If reports are to be believed, then, despite the dramatic change Christina's new routine is actually quite sensible: an average day for her is said to be made up of a pumpkin-apple quinoa outmeal in the morning, grilled steak and roasted tomatoes for lunch, grilled tuna with sweet potatoes and cauliflower for dinner and apple-cinnamon cheesecake for dessert.
Aguilera's weight has fluctuated a lot over the past decade (as is normal for a woman leaving her teens and going in to her late twenties and thirties), and while she recently said that she "loved having a booty", insiders say the very-public criticism of her body got to her.
"A lot of people were on her about her weight and it depressed her. She went through a bad time because of the criticism," the alleged insider claimed.
