Gladys Knight was voted off of “Dancing With the Stars” last night, but she says the exit is bittersweet.

The 67-year-old music legend started a health program shortly before partnering up with Tristan MacManus for the show and it’s resulted in a the loss of 60 pounds.

“[Tristan] helped [by] wearing me out,” Knight told reporters backstage after she was eliminated Tuesday night, adding that Freshology’s Getslim with the Stars program helped her lose weight.You’ve got to eat healthy and you’ve got to put a little movement into it,” she says.

For breakfast, for example, Knight says her pre-rehearsal meals consisted of a PowerBar, a protein drink and fruit.

And while she walks away with a fine new physique, it’s not the only thing Knight will take away from her time on “Dancing.”
