Lainey Wilson continues to shine as one of country music’s brightest stars. In May, she walked away from the ACM Awards with four wins, including the award for Female Artist of the Year.
Wilson inspired viewers with her acceptance speech, saying:
“I tell you what, everybody in this category didn’t just wind up there by happenstance; they have worked their fingers to the bone, they have put blood, sweat and tears, and years into this. Made so many sacrifices missing a lot of weddings and a lot of funerals. Not that I want to go to all of them anyway, but I’m just saying. Oh my goodness! For the little girls watching this: this right here is thanks to hard work. If you’re gonna be a dreamer, you better be a doer.”
Wilson also looked stunning at the ACM Awards in a green two-piece set with her signature bell bottom pants. Fans have picked up on the fact that the “Heart Like a Truck” singer looks like she’s lost weight, but Wilson hasn’t touched on her weight loss that much.
Back in May, Wilson spoke with Delish about her eating habits and how they’ve changed over the years. She said she used to be a picky eater, but is more open to trying new foods these days.
Wilson also said she tries her best to eat three meals each day, especially while touring. But she admits that’s difficult because of her busy schedule. “It’s really hard to make sure that you’re disciplined enough to do that. I try my best that I possibly can,” she said.
The singer told Delish she loves to eat scrambled eggs and bacon for breakfast, while she enjoys yogurt or salad at lunch. She tries to prioritize protein in her diet, such as chicken and shrimp.
Some of Wilson’s favorite snacks are beef jerky, hummus, cheese, and almonds. She also loves dark chocolate, and says, “At some point in time, I will have a bite of chocolate every single day.”
Though Wilson keeps things balanced. She is happy to “dig right in” to some pizza late at night after a show.
Naturally, many have wondered how much weight Wilson dropped, and how she went about it.
Life & Style claims that Wilson lost 70 pounds over the course of several years. The publication alleges that Wilson “declared 2020 would be her ‘year of health‘” and made some changes to her lifestyle. Yet the publication does not cite any sources, and Wilson has never addressed her weight loss in such a direct way herself.
No matter how much weight she lost or how she did so, one thing’s for certain. Wilson did not lose weight by taking weight loss gummies you see advertised online. Some of these advertisements have used Wilson’s likeness in an attempt to sell their product.
Wilson shared a video in June calling out these fake weight loss gummy ads. She said:
“Alright, y’all. By now, I’m sure a lot of y’all have seen some ads about me losing weight, being hospitalized, and that I started taking some of weight loss gummies and blah, blah, blah, it saved my life. Well, surprise. It ain’t true. People will do whatever to make a dollar even if it is lies. Because ain’t nobody sent me any gummies.”
“If I have lost weight, it’s because I am working hard and playing hour and a half shows and running around every night of my life. And to be honest, me losing weight or gaining weight ain’t got anything to do with my music. I love y’all. I just don’t want y’all spending your money on something that ain’t real. Do not fall for it.”
