Jordin Sparks shows off her amazing new figure on the cover of this month’s Shape. The American Idol winner, who first revealed her bikini bod via Twitter in the spring of 2011, dropped a total of 50 lbs, and tells the magazine that turning 21 was a turning point for her. “I just wanted to be healthy,” Sparks said. “I remember thinking, ‘I’m in my prime. I should be happy and fit.’ That was the moment when I decided that changes needed to be made.”
“I was barely working out, and my diet was a mess,” she adds. “I had to address when, what, and how much I was eating.” She credits her new svelte figure to eating smaller portions, choosing leaner options and hiking. Now that she’s sticking to a healthier lifestyle, we’re assuming the singer would be able to refrain from trying what the cover refers to as “The Best Burgers We’ve Ever Tasted”.
