Melanie Amaro Weight Loss

‘The X Factor’ starlet may have won the competition, but she’s still fighting with the battle of the bulge. After being forced to lose weight by her new record label, a source tells HollywoodLife.com the singer is making progress.

In today’s industry, it takes more than a $5 million voice to be a star. Melanie Amaro had the chops to win The X Factor, but now her record label wants her to have a rock-on body to pair with her rock-on voice. Despite being forced into shape by music executive L.A. Reid, Melanie seems to be making process in reshaping her image.

“It’s still definitely in the beginning stages as she has lost only about six pounds,” a source close to Melanie tells HollywoodLife.com. “The ultimate goal is to completely lose up to 30 pounds. They want her to look like Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood when they were at their bests, if not better.”

The source says Reid’s goal is to have her appear on talk shows like The Today Show, Anderson Cooper, Dr. Oz and more to talk about her body transformation while promoting her new album, which will be released in the upcoming year. Right now she is working with a personal trainer and following a strictly regimented diet, but Reid is also considering trying to get her a deal with a weight loss program like Jenny Craig.

“They want to debut her new look during the next seasons of The X Factor. Obviously with Britney & Demi, Simon is doing everything to make the show be must see. Melanie Amaro is one of those plans,” said the source.

So far the hardest part of Melanie’s weight loss is her love for her family’s unhealthy home-cooked meals, and her lack of motivation in the gym. hat said, she is making serious progress and working hard to turn her fitness habits around. Tell us what YOU think! Are you excited to see Melanie’s body transformation?

I guess L. A. Reid never met the “Queen of Soul”, Aretha Franklin. Talent comes in all sizes. If Melanie wants to loose weight, that is fine, but this article makes me ill.

I am french too and i think she is really gross ugly and too fat with no charisma at all . I wonder what she is thinking of her Jesus now that her first single flop ? I don’t think Jesus is helping so much right now .
Anyway americansss should take some – eating properly – lessons
and try to grow some soul too because I think it is missing around here , that is why they look so ugly sometimes freak like too , specially the women with their wigs ( guys i think are OK ) Amaro she needs a soul and once she get one maybe ! she will sell a few records

What a racist, pathetic, and ignorant rant you posted, Claire. You have no idea of soul or what an American woman should or should not look like. How dare you interject Jesus in your pitiful tirade. Jesus, does not judge people like you insist on doing.

Bonnie Fuller, why would you post this unflattering photo of Melanie? She literally has hundreds and hundreds of beautiful photos that I have seen online, from the show, yet you choose this one. That was an unkind thing to do to this sweet and talented girl.

It is self serving to post that photo, and just plain mean. Has nobody ever seen the pictures of Celebs caught with no make up and looking like they just cleaned house. It’s another dirty trick to sell this garbage.

This a BEAST. I am from France and we simply do not see a woman this fat. If we did, we would wonder if she is perhaps disabled mentally to keep eating this way and make herself look like this.

I am disgusted.

You people are deluding yourselves if you think all you need to be a successful music artist is a voice. Image is everything these days! Mariah is doing Jenny Craig, Janet Jackson doing Nutrisystem, J. Hudson doing weight watchers, and even Adele is now on a diet and exercise regimen in order to lose weight. You think they just decided on their own to drop pounds? They figured if they are gonna lose weight, they might as well make big money endorsing a weight loss product. Why not be healthier anyway? Melanie won’t be a toothpick. She’ll just look better and feel better. For 5 million dollars, I think LA has a right to ask for this.

Melaine don’t let no one change who you are. I would buy your music because of your voice. People should accept you just the way you are which is a beautiful young lady with a beautiful voice. Look at Adelle. She is not thin. If losing weight is your choice fine. But if it is someone else’s choice it is not ok to stop your recording. Lets hear that great voice you have.
