You might not recognize Blake Shelton the next time you see him. Recently, the 44-year-old country music icon suffered a significant weight drop that was not done for aesthetic purposes.

After several of his followers expressed concern about his physical appearance at a virtual concert, Shelton told his supporters that he had recently avoided a serious health crisis.

Shelton admitted in a Zoom interview that he had formed unhealthy habits like compulsive overeating, excessive snacking, and binge drinking in the early stages of his seclusion.

He put on a lot of weight as a result of his habits, which were made worse by the fact that the epidemic at the time prevented him from working or going on tour.

Finally, while attempting to finish some housekeeping, the musician experienced a small heart attack.

He admitted in the interview that “my lifestyle had turned into something that was so destructive to my health.” I didn’t realize those late-night cheeseburgers and extra beers with my friends were killing me until I felt a tightness in my chest.

Despite the fact that it wasn’t a full-blown heart attack, his way of life was negatively affecting his health. To prevent further heart problems, my doctor encouraged me to drop weight as soon as possible and permanently.

Shelton realized after the fright that he needed to take charge of his health and make some changes. He talked with Kelly Clarkson, a personal friend and fellow The Voice judge, before deciding to try the ketogenic diet.

In order for your body to enter ketosis and start burning fat, the diet calls for you to significantly cut your carbohydrate intake. Shelton asserts that he is in the best shape of his life as a result of the weight loss he achieved thanks to the Keto diet.

Shelton has been really lucky to fully recover from his health emergency. He had a small heart attack, yet he is actually in better shape now than he was before. The outbreak has caused many people’s previously healthy lifestyles to deteriorate during the past six months. For those people, his tale can serve as a powerful example.
