Carrie Underwood looked gorgeous in a no-makeup selfie she posted on Instagram after a tough Tabata workout and a four-mile run.
Carrie was inundated with compliments from appreciative Instagram fans, who said she looks better with no makeup at all (see photo below).
Meanwhile, Underwood looks skinnier than ever after losing all her baby weight shortly after giving birth to son Isaiah in February.
Carrie’s post-baby weight loss secrets are a vegan diet and rigorous workouts that combine cardio exercise and weightlifting, Examiner reported.
Underwood also does weightlifting, preferring to lift light weights at high repetitions.
Carrie is a longtime vegan who followed a vegetarian diet during her pregnancy. Underwood returned to her vegan diet after giving birth to son Isaiah Michael Fisher in February.
Underwood joins a long list of celebrity vegans, who credit the 100% plant-based diet for its weight loss and anti-aging health benefits. Other celebrity vegans include Beyonce, Shania Twain 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 sizzling body. “I am not naturally the thinnest,” said Beyonce. “I have struggled since a young age with diets and finding something that actually works, actually keeps the weight off, has been difficult for me.”
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.
The 5-foot-3 Carrie lost 20 pounds shortly after winning “American Idol,” and has since become a fitness fanatic who admits she obsessively counts calories and works out daily.
“My favorite thing is cardio,” Underwood said. “Cardio makes me feel good, it makes me happy.”
