Looking good, Lauren Alaina!

The 5-foot-7 Georgia native dropped 25 pounds in the last five months, which really shows on her face and frame.

“Changing my diet was the big thing,” she tells Us Weekly. “I had to learn correct portion control.” The 16-year-old had a little help with that thanks to a meal delivery service called Sunfare.

“I eat an egg-white omelet for breakfast, shrimp and veggies for lunch and chicken with asparagus for dinner,” she says of her new meal plan.

She added, “Lots of squats have also helped. “I’m 10 pounds from my goal — almost there! I wear size small and extra-small now!”
