Kelsea is proud of her relationship with her body 

Kelsea will perform in Sin City on 20 August which will mark the start of her 40 concert tour. She'll end at the Hollywood Bowl on 27 October. 

Kelsea will need to be in tip-top condition to take on the exhausting performances and she recently opened up about her wellness regime to Shape magazine.

She said: "I try to do what's good for me 80 percent of the time," she explained. "The other 20 percent of the time, I just enjoy my life.

"I run through the McDonald's drive-through once a month, and it's fine. Sometimes I'll have a little too much wine, and that's OK too."

Speaking about times when she might be unhealthy, she added: "I've spent so much of my life feeling guilty for things that I eat or having an unhealthy relationship with food or the gym or whatever.

"So I just try to be nice to myself and do what's good for me. And when I don't, I start again the next day."
