In 2020, Lainey made a resolute commitment to prioritize her health, marking it as her “year of health.” Her transformative journey commenced with a comprehensive dietary overhaul, placing a strong emphasis on fruits, vegetables, protein, and controlled carbohydrates. Recognizing the adverse impact of sugar, dairy, and processed foods on her body—inducing pain and inflammation—she conscientiously eliminated them. Complementing her dietary adjustments, the “Dirty Looks” songstress enlisted a personal trainer and embraced an array of physical activities such as running and hiking. Notably, her weight loss journey unfolded gradually, reflecting a steadfast commitment to holistic well-being.
In January, a TikTok video spotlighting her vibrant transformation garnered viral attention, capturing Lainey’s playful response. In her characteristic humorous style, she shared, “I can’t even scroll on TikTok without seeing my fat butt.” With a spirited demeanor, she encouraged viewers to explore her album, Bell Bottom Country, quipping, “However you found me, I’m happy you’re here.”
Expanding on the viral video, Lainey discussed its impact in an interview with ET Canada in April. Expressing her embrace of the video’s spotlight on her journey, she acknowledged how it broadened her music’s reach. Drawing inspiration from the legendary Dolly Parton, she conveyed, “You know, I’ve been at this a long time and if you found out about my music and stuck around because of the butt or because of the music … you’re welcome!”
In June 2023, the Baskin, Louisiana native dispelled rumors that attributed her weight loss to weight loss gummies. She attributed her leaner physique to the energy she invests in her captivating live performances.

In a candid Instagram video, Lainey addressed the rumors with unwavering clarity, saying, “Alright y’all, by now I’m sure a lot y’all have seen some ads about me losing weight, being hospitalized and then I started taking some weight loss gummies and blah blah blah that saved my life. Well, surprise, it ain’t true.” She reassured her followers, “If I have lost weight, it’s because I’m working hard, playing hour-and-a-half shows and running around every night of my life. And to be honest, me losing weight or gaining weight ain’t got anything to do with my music.”
