Soul great Aretha Franklin is on a crash diet in a bid to lose weight before her wedding next month (Jun07). The Respect singer has signed up to America's Jenny Craig Diet and is limiting herself to 1,750 calories-a-day in an effort to slim down. Franklin says, "I'm at 1,750 calories a day and I'm starving. "You just have to get used to portions and changing your lifestyle." The heavyweight diva, who will wed longterm boyfriend Willie Wilkerson Jr next month (Jun07), insists she knows the Jenny Craig diet works - because she has seen amazing results in the past. She tells Sister 2 Sister magazine, "I lost 23 or 24 pounds to begin with, but it's kind of a strain when you get to 23 or 24 pounds. That's why I got off of it. "It's a strain because you're eating the Jenny Craig-type meals, which are very good. But you can only eat them for so long before you want some barbecue ribs or some pigs feet. "Once you get off that Jenny Craig thing and you start eating what you've been eating, it's all over."
