SHRINK­ING DI­VAS

Life & Style Weekly - - Photo Flash -

Mariah Carey, Christina Aguil­era and Kelly Clark­son slim down!

Whether it’s di­a­monds, de­signer duds or tasty treats, Mariah Carey has never been one to de­prive her­self of the things she loves. But when the ex­tra pounds she’d packed on made it dif­fi­cult to per­form on­stage, the 49-year-old su­per­star knew she needed to make a few life­style ad­just­ments. “She’s cut out bread and but­ter, creamy pas­tas and the sug­ary cock­tails she vowed she’d never give up,” says an in­sider. “She hated jokes about her backup dancers strug­gling to lift her. She was not happy.” Since last year, the 5-foot-9 singer has dropped from 185 pounds to 135, es­ti­mates nutri­tion ex­pert Dr. Fred Pesca­tore, who doesn’t treat Mariah. Though she hasn’t ad­dressed re­ports she un­der­went gas­tric sleeve surgery last year, Mariah has been eat­ing smaller por­tions and lean­ing on “nu­tri­ent-filled juices,” the in­sider says. Now Mariah, who be­gins a sum­mer res­i­dency in Las Ve­gas on July 5, “can’t wait,” says the in­sider, “to be on­stage again.”
