Katharine McPhee: I'm Not Going To Diet Or Obsess About My Weight- Good For You!

How can we get such a bikini-ready, bangin’ bod like you, Katharine?

If you thought Katharine McPhee got in tip-top shape by clocking in hours at the gym or starving herself, think again — this American Idol alum discovered the secret to shedding some lbs. was to just not even think about them!

“The more I focused on my weight, the worse my bulimia got,” the 25-year-old singer — who struggled with the eating disorder for even years — tells Shape in its February 2010 issue. “Now I’m more easygoing. I stopped fighting myself and became more forgiving on my body.”

Who knew this simple change would yield such amazing results … even Katharine was surprised! “Ironically, the weight came off naturally through exercise but no dieting,” she explains.

But her body transformation wasn’t the only change she went through. The brunette swapped her long locks for a much shorter — and much buzzed-about — dramatic ‘do. “I was feeling rebellious. That’s when I knew I wanted something big. So I said to my stylist, ‘Just chop it all off and make me a blonde!'” she recalls.

Yes, she admittedly was a little freaked out immediately after her visit to the salon, but that all went away within 24 hours after Katharine started feeling like a whole new gal. “I felt edgy and playful. I went out and brought new clothes for the new me,” she says. “It was definitely a good thing to do.”

We agree! Tell us, do you like Kat’s new look?

She looks gorgeous as usual. I’m starting to really dig the blonde hair. Is it just me or is belly button really high up?
