The whole American Idol experience has been quite a workout for reigning champ Candice Glover . She tells People magazine she has lost 30 pounds since the start of the year, including 10 since the May finale.
Candice chalks up the weight loss to her busy schedule, which includes rehearsals for the Idol tour. She says, "I just walk a lot in the airports, and then we are rehearsing the choreography. I call [the rehearsal room] the gym, to be honest."
The American Idols Live tour kicks off on July 19. She recently pushed back the release of her debut album, Music Speaks , to October 8.
