Blake Shelton’s Weight Gain: The Singer Gained 117 Pounds During Quarantine!
Blake Shelton (@blakeshelton) has always been a big guy physically but he was probably at his highest weight when he had a weight gain of about 117 pounds during quarantine.
During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Blake Shelton revealed that he had undergone some physical changes, like weight gain, during quarantine which scared him. He noticed that his hair had gone completely white which surprised him because how could he not have noticed it when he was a judge on a television show, on television all the time? Besides that, he gained 117 pounds which made him look fatter which was not something he was looking forward to.
The country singer admitted that he would have liked it much better if he had not had that weight gain because it made him look fat and also because he was trying to lose weight so what happened was the exact opposite of what he was going for. But he did and he tried to shed all the pounds he had put on while self-isolating with more urgency as his wedding date with Gwen Stefani came closer.
In an interview for Bryan’s Apple Music Show Party Barn Radio, when Blake Shelton was asked what the chances of losing 20 pounds for his wedding were, on a scale of 1 to 10, he went with 10. He also confessed that he had readjusted all the mirrors in the house, so they looked like when people were taking a selfie from up above as he couldn’t even stand to look at himself in the mirror. He had to reverse all that weight gain even if he were not about to be married.
Blake Shelton did get much slimmer in time for the wedding but as soon as the wedding bliss was over, he went back to his old ways and it was rumored that he had weight gain again. He supposedly stepped out in public looking all sweaty and doughy which made the public aware of all the weight he had gained back. He was said to have restarted binge eating and snacking on high-calorie foods. As per an insider, he got nice and lean for the wedding, but after that, the salads and water bottles were gone and it was BBQ, cornbread, sodas, bread, and all his favorite carbs and desserts.
The weight gain rumors were much worse because there were also claims that Gwen Stefani had been finding snack wrappers hidden around the house which obviously belonged to Blake Shelton who the tabloids accused of eating the leftovers of Stefani’s children’s plates. She was panicked by that latest development and not just because Blake was looking worse but because she was also worried about his health.
The most scandalous part of those rumors, which has been debunked already, was when there were claims that Gwen Stefani was so frustrated with Blake Shelton’s weight gain, his appearance, and his sloppiness that she gave him an ultimatum to lose weight. She threatened to leave him if he wouldn’t lose weight. She apparently even suggested that he get liposuction so he could eat whatever he wanted for Christmas.
Apparently, the main problem with the All Over Me hitmaker and the cause of his weight gain is his guts. He is also supposedly a meat and potatoes guy who loves his carbs.
