Aretha Franklin Diet - 85 Lbs And Counting!
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

The Aretha Franklin Diet is all the buzz, and Ms. Franklin herself, a renowned gospel and soul singer, is back in the spotlight because of it. Many people are seeking to know what magic formula she used to lose a clean 85 pounds “just like that!” Well, according to Aretha Franklin, she looks at her old pictures back when she was obese, and she just loathes looking at the old her. Her triumph is not a magical story even if she does hold super-diva status; it is just a plain and simple story that is fueled by self-discipline and motivation.

Old Bad Habits:

Truth is that the Aretha Franklin diet that led to her recent weight loss is very basic. And the thing that I love about this weight loss story is that she is the voice for bigger sized women, and is proving that it’s never too late to lose weight.  Really, she says that she just had to cut down on the crappy foods... the burgers and soda (her favorite lunch food) and the changing the snacks that have high calorie content for better alternatives. It’s no surprise that Aretha has said that her 2 main reasons for eating so poorly were time her lack of enough time to sit down for a decent meal due to her busy life style, and the fact that as a huge star she basically had access to anything she ever wanted at any time of the day. 

A New Attitude:

Such a lifestyle, however, was clearly working against her. She became very obese, and she even developed pancreatic cancer a while back (but luckily beat!). After going through all this, she was determined to lose weight. The Aretha Franklin diet she went on has changed her life totally. Her personal trainer supervised the diet just like a nutritionist and a dietitian would do the same. Her doctor also participated greatly in this weight loss program. Aretha Franklin says that she will be forever grateful to these two people, because they were (and still are) of great help to her as far as managing, supporting and tracking her healthy weight loss diet.

The Aretha Franklin diet for lunch changed immediately from burgers and soda to veggie salad and fresh juice. She also ensures that her breakfast are full of whole cereals and whole grains, to help her to feel very rejuvenated and to boost her metabolism. She also takes dietary supplements, especially those that contain essential oils like the omega oils from fish.

A Health-Consicous Diet:

In addition, the Aretha Franklin Diet was made up of more natural foods and less processed foods. She said that she made a decision to keep away from the more processed, chemically treated and canned foods as much as possible. The preservatives and the chemicals used in such foods, she said, are quite harmful to the health, and are responsible for obesity and other health-related issues. Aretha Franklin is now happy to be a smaller size 14, and her before and after photos are proof that her hard work has been paying off.
