American Idol’s Chris Daughtry Lost 23 Pounds By Doing THIS — And Now He’s Buff! (PHOTO)

"I'm going home"? More like, "I'm getting toned!"

American Idol's Chris Daughtry tells People that he became determined to lose weight after seeing shocking photos of himself.

"When I've gone on tour in the past, everything has gone out the window," Chris says. "Late-night eating, junk food, pizza, donuts, beer. I gained 25 lbs. and I didn't realize it until I saw photos myself and I went, 'Oh my gosh, I can't even see my jawline. Who is that guy?'"

Chris says a big reason for his significant weight loss is limiting his access to his favorite treats. "I love pizza. If it's around, I'm gonna eat it," he says. "If there's a cheeseburger around, I'm going to eat it. If there are cookies, I'll eat a lot of them. So one key is not to have them around."

"I'm not going to totally deprive myself of the things I love to eat; instead I'll eat them in moderation and then immediately deal with the fallout," he says, referring to more frequent exercise. His preferred methods of working out include "circuit training or cardio."

Whatever he's doing, it's certainly paid off!
