If you have seen Carrie Underwood’s sexy post baby body you would never know that she gave birth less than a year ago! The 32-year-old singer/fashion designer is looking sexier than ever and even landed herself on the cover of Shape magazine! How in the world did Carrie Underwood at over 30 years old melt away all of her pregnancy fat in such a short period of time? Let’s just say she followed a strict set of weight loss rules and got the help of a powerful all natural weight loss pill called Garcinia Cambogia.
The combination of a few celebrity weight loss hacks and a powerful all natural weight loss pill designed to speed up her metabolism and melt fat around the clock was all Carrie Underwood needed to shed nearly 30 lbs. of baby weight in less than a year.
We spoke to her celebrity trainer recently and got our hands on the powerful weight loss rules that Carrie used to transform her body so quickly.
Carrie Underwood Nutrition Weight Loss Rules
No White Carbs
The first thing that Carrie Underwood had to eliminate was her white carbohydrate obsession. This meant that Carrie could not consume white bread, sugar, potatoes, rice, and pasta. Carrie’s trainer explains that all of these “white carbohydrates” spike your blood sugar and make losing weight nearly impossible.
Spiking your insulin shuts off your body’s crucial fat burning hormones and makes losing that baby weight hard past the age of 30.
Carrie swapped high fiber whole grains such as lentils, quinoa, brown rice and oatmeal instead of her usual go to “white carbs.”
Carrie got the weight loss help of a powerful all natural metabolism boosting pill. Carrie’s trainer said that too many people trying to lose weight starve themselves and go on a crazy calorie restricted diet. The real magic happens when you are able to boost your metabolism all day long and have the energy needed to workout like a machine! Carrie would take her daily metabolism boosting pills in the morning which helped her body burn an extra 200-300 calories everyday and gave her surges of energy to workout consistently. Carrie would also drink 2-3 cups of all natural green tea per day which is another great way to boost your metabolism. She would also squeeze half of a lemon into her green tea for the added detox boost.
This daily regimen of all natural metabolism boosting pills and green tea helped her burn calories around the clock and made losing weight without starving effortless.
When in Doubt Eat high fiber foods
Whenever Carrie got hungry she made sure that she ate foods that filled her up with very little calories. Her trainer explained that when most people get hungry they have a temptation to eat simple carbohydrates like cookies, crackers, sandwiches, chips, candy, etc. These are all high calorie items that contain zero fiber. You can consume 500 calories of crackers and potato chips and still be hungry – but consuming a big bowl of oatmeal with fresh fruit and chia seeds at 300 calories will keep you full for hours. Many people trying to lose weight efficiently stay away from carbohydrates – but in reality it’s the high fiber carbohydrates like oatmeal, fruits, vegetables, seeds, and nuts that give you the most bang for your weight loss buck!
Follow Ms. Underwood’s lead and reach for those high fiber snacks!
High Quality Protein
Another one of Carrie Underwood’s nutrition strategies to lose weight was to get more “high quality” protein.
Protein is the most important macronutrient when you are trying to lose weight because it fuels your hard working muscles and helps to stimulate and rev up that metabolism.
The combination of adding in high quality protein and the natural metabolism boosters was enough to activate that fat burning furnace around the clock.
Instead of the low quality protein sources that she was consuming when when she was pregnant like fried chicken and pork, deli meats, and farm raised fish – she started to only eat organic and grass fed meats, wild caught fish, organic eggs, and high quality whey protein.
This helped her with the intense workouts she was undergoing and turned her body into that fat burning machine we all strive to have.

Carrie Underwood Workout Regimen
You don’t land the cover of Shape magazine 7 months after giving birth by being lazy – and Carrie made sure to hire one of the top celebrity trainers to whip her into bikini body shape. Her workout regimen was strategically constructed to help her build lean muscle mass, boost her metabolism, and turn her body into a fat burning machine around the clock. Carrie was following a very clean diet during her post pregnancy weight loss transformation designed to keep her metabolism churning all day long.
Not only was she eating clean and drinking several cups of fat burning green tea per day – but she was taking some incredibly powerful all natural metabolism boosting pills in the morning with breakfast. These pills gave her a burst of energy so she was able to get in training sessions 5 days per week.
Her trainer also says the pills helped her boost her metabolism enough to burn a few hundred extra calories per day. This may not seem like a lot but over the course of a few months this can add up to 5-10 lbs. of pure fat when combined with the green tea and a good workout regimen.
