She has won three Grammy Awards for the album, including Best New Artist. But such prestigious awards are not the only achievements of her life; she underwent a successful weight loss, of which she is equally proud as any of her other accomplishments. Below, we discuss how did she do it.
How did Carrie Underwood Undergo a Successful Weight Loss?
Carrie Underwood considered losing weight after she gave birth to her son Isaiah Michael Fisher in 2015. She sought the help of a personal trainer and worked hard to shed the baby weight. To date, she still exercises and is maintaining her fit bodyweight.

'I've been pretty consistent with exercise for the past several years,' she told Style Craze. 'Growing up, I was semisporty but didn't really do much. If I'd kept on that path, it wouldn't have ended well! I'm from the South, where there's a lot of fried food, and that's bound to show.'
Carrie Underwood follows a unique way of doing a workout. Her style of working out is not getting straight into picking up the dumbbells but by playing cards! Yeah, you heard that right. She explained the method to Style Craze:
'I take a deck of cards and assign each suit a body area—say, diamonds for arms, hearts for legs, spades for core and clubs for cardio. I split the deck in half and write down exercises for each suit, a different one for each half." And then, "flip over the six of hearts, I'll do six squats. If the next card is ace of diamonds, that's 14 push-ups. Sometimes I'll make spades boxing and beat the crap out of the bag for however many punches the number on the card says.'
That indeed is a different type of working out. Carrie also partners with her husband Mike Fisher during workouts. 'Mike and I worked out together—once,' she said. 'He wanted to do leg throws, where I lie down, he stands up, and I grab his ankles and raise my legs in the air. The idea is for him to push my legs down, so they touch the floor, then I lift up again. But he pushed them down so hard, my legs just hit the floor. I was like, 'I'm smaller than you! Lighten up!'
Carrie Underwood's Diet Plan
Carrie Underwood identifies herself as a 95% vegetarian. She became vegan eight years ago, and she still feels great without eating meat. 'I love eating and talking about food. I've been a vegetarian for seven years, she said. 'But after seeing a friend who looked amazing and had recently gone vegan, I thought, what's holding me back? I'll never eat meat again because I look and feel better without it.'
