    Default Alanis Morissette slims down








    (Jack Guy)



    Less than a year ago, Alanis Morissette found herself in a heavy situation: the once-svelte rock star had packed on weight, and the processed food sheíd been eating left her feeling unhealthy.

    Determined to get back on track, Alanis turned to Dr. Joel Fuhrmanís book Eat to Live, a plan that recommends consuming fruit, vegetables, beans and nuts, and avoiding meat and dairy products.

    Alanisí vegan diet ó one of the more popular in Hollywood these days ó has helped her shed 20 pounds since she began the new regime in September.

    Now, the 34-year-old singer who redefined ďironicĒ is proud to show off her new shape and share her dieting tips with OK! readers.

    OK!: How does it feel to have lost 20 pounds?
    I feel like a 12-year-old! Iím back to what I was born to be, at my best. I used to get out of bed in the morning and things were aching, and I just thought, this is what happens when you get into your 30s. But now I jump out of bed and have so much energy; I feel very alive. Even after a workout, I feel like if I rest a little bit I could go out dancing all night, so thatís exciting. I have no more aches and pains, and my allergies are gone, too.

    OK!: What were you eating that made you gain weight?

    A lot of salt and processed grains like bread. I was a sandwich person, and if I had rice, I would pack the salt on.

    OK!: Why did you overeat?

    All the restrictions and limitations Iíd placed upon myself for many years were let loose. I think it was a rite of passage for me. At 21, I was touring with Jagged Little Pill, so I didnít experience the footloose and fancy-free passage that most people do in their teens and early 20s. My whole life Iíve been overly responsible. So I was fantastically indulgent for a good nine months. I knew it would be a temporary thing, and it was fun. There was a sexiness to my curvier self that I loved.

    OK!: Why did you want to find a new eating plan?

    Longevity. I realized I want to live till Iím 120. Thereís a lifestyle that I am how happily creating that can, as best as is possible, prevent most forms of cancer and other diseases.

    OK!: How did you come to choose Dr. Joel Fuhrmanís program?

    I went to my favorite bookstore, Banyen Books and Sound, in Vancouver. I saw this book, Eat to Live, and I thought, thatís exactly what I want to do. I wasnít interested in some fad diet that was unsustainable, like ďlose 10 pounds in two weeks.Ē I donít believe in diets; I think theyíre short-term and a bit of an emotional roller-coaster. So I opened it and flipped through and thought the weight loss is incidental. The primary focus is disease prevention.

    OK!: What is your workout routine?

    When Iím out on tour, my shows are so physical that that really takes care of it. When Iím not on tour, I do between a half hour to an hour of light weights, running, biking, swimming, probably five times a week. I also love to kickbox and dance.

    OK!: What does your boyfriend (attorney Tom Ballanco) think of your weight loss?

    He just cares about my well-being. He thought I was sexy at whatever weight that Iíve been. Iíve never felt loved in that way before.

    OK!: Will your next big project be to plan a wedding?


    I could see in the not too distant future being married with children, absolutely, but Iím in no crazy rush. I wildly respect him. How he views the world, the lens through which he looks at life is very similar to mine. To have that in common makes me sleep well at night.

    She looks like she lost more like 35 lbs from the last pictures I saw (she's standing on stage with a vest of some sort if I remember correctly). Good for her though, if this is what she wants.

    It's always the same line

    If she did slim down the right way then good for her.
    I don't think she looked bad before!

    Yeah, it might be a smidge more than 20 pounds. Hard to tell.





    She looks good now, no need to go any thinner, imo.
