R&B legend Gladys Knight might have gotten the boot Tuesday from "Dancing with the Stars," but the 67-year-old diva walked away 60 pounds lighter.

She says she owes the dramatic weight loss to a health regimen she began shortly before teaming up with her DWTS partner, Tristan McManus.

"[Tristan] helped [by] wearing me out," Knight said in an interview. "You've got to eat healthy and you've got to put a little movement into it."

"The Midnight Train to Georgia" singer added that her diet for the show included an energy bar, protein drink and fruit for breakfast.
