Carrie Underwood’s Post-Baby Weight Loss: Her Vegan Diet and Workout Secrets

Vegan Carrie Underwood unveiled her stunning post-baby weight loss in a photoshoot for her Calia for Carrie Underwood exercise apparel.

Underwood, who’s as skinny as ever, said her weight loss secrets are a vegan diet and rigorous exercise that combine cardio and strength training, Examiner reported.

Carrie is a longtime vegan who followed a vegetarian diet during her pregnancy. Underwood gave birth to son Isaiah Michael Fisher in February and has since resumed her vegan diet.

Underwood joins a long list of celebrity vegans, who credit the 100% plant-based diet for easy weight loss and its anti-aging health benefits. Celebrity vegans include Beyonce, Jared Leto and Demi Moore.

Beyonce’s longtime trainer, Marco Borges, said The 22-Day Revolution diet helped Beyonce lose 65 pounds several months after she gave birth to daughter Blue Ivy in 2012

The 5-foot-7 Beyonce, who once weighed 195 pounds, has since maintained her weight loss and looks better than ever.

Borges, who has trained Beyonce since 2007, said her mostly vegan diet is responsible for her smoking-hot body. Similarly, Jennifer Lopez has credited Marco’s 22-day vegan diet for her 10-pound weight loss and age-defying beauty.

Experiencing easy weight loss and improved health on a vegan diet isn’t surprising to medical experts like Dr. Joel Fuhrman. “The more greens you eat, the more weight you will lose,” said Fuhrman, author of The End of Dieting.

Underwood, who shot to fame after winning “American Idol” in 2005, has undergone a dramatic transformation during the past 10 years.

Carrie’s workouts included lots of high-intensity cardio exercise such as running on the treadmill and kickboxing, as well as strength-training with five- to 30-pound weights, according to Examiner.

“My favorite thing is cardio,” Underwood said. “Cardio makes me feel good, it makes me happy.”
