Blake Shelton Says Any Weight Loss Is a Result of His ‘Divorce Diet’

Blake Shelton is noticeably thinner lately, but the singer implies it’s unintentional — a result of his “divorce diet.” The singer’s official split from fellow country star Miranda Lambert was finalized in July.

Shelton stopped by America’s Morning Show this week to chat with Blair Garner about his free Nashville show on Music Row, The Voice and the hottest topic, his new, slimmer figure.

“Well, ya know, you should try the divorce diet”, the “Gonna” singer jokes when asked about his physique. “I just think, not the actual breakup part, but the stress of getting through all of that was weird, so I didn’t eat as many fried pickles and stuff.”

Shelton shares that he wasn’t purposely trying to lose weight post-divorce, he simply just wasn’t eating as much. There were no long hours logged at the gym or strict diet to stick to, he’s just been staying as busy as he can to keep his mind off of everything else.

The 39-year-old country superstar definitely has been keeping busy, between filming the current season of The Voice and prepping the release of Reloaded: 20 #1 Hits, which is slated to be released on Oct. 23.  Next June, Shelton will headline 2016 Country Jam in Grand Junction, Colo., and though he has no set plans for a full tour this concert season, he tells the Bobby Bones Show he’s considering hitting the road again in 2016.
