Miranda Lambert’s 45-pound weight loss at the 2015 CMA Awards on Nov. 4 drew raves from country music fans and fashionistas. Lambert, who looked gorgeous in a form-fitting black Versace gown, won Female Vocalist of the Year.
Miranda’s weight loss secrets were a portion-controlled diet and circuit-training workouts, Celebrity Health & Fitness reported. Lambert denied rumors she slimmed down with weight loss surgery, saying diet and exercise reshaped her body.
Lambert first revealed her dramatic weight loss in 2013. Rumors started swirling that she had plastic surgery. But she said she dropped the pounds “the healthy and good old-fashioned way. Watching what I eat and working out with my trainer Bill Crutchfield.” So what are Lambert’s diet and exercise secrets? Lambert has lost an estimated 25 pounds since 2012 by practicing portion control and working out with her trainer. She doesn’t obsess over her weight, though. She’ll eat the food she loves, but she cuts portions in half.
Lambert also sticks to a fitness regimen that includes working with her trainer doing cardio circuit training, lunges, and exercises with resistance bands as well as going jogging, horseback riding and walking.(Miranda Lambert Workout Plan Overview)
Her Diet — Before & After Swaps
Miranda told People that instead of a breakfast like bacon and eggs, she now has a green juice. Instead of having a huge, unhealthy cheeseburger, she cuts it in half. “Smaller portions right from the start.” She’s trying to make healthier choices overall: “Instead of steak for dinner, I might have chicken and a baked sweet potato.”
In addition to diet, focus on a healthy lifestyle. Smoking, pollution, stress, and chronic sun exposure destroy collagen and can inhibit the skins cellular renewal cycle. Include circulatory exercise daily as this stimulates blood flow bringing nutrients and oxygen to the dermal layer for skin health.”
As for the rumors that suggest Miranda is back on the dating scene following her split from Shelton, Lambert notes, “If I ever were to get married again—which is completely not on my radar at all right now—I feel like it’s not about it being a step in life. It’s not about a piece of paper or a diamond. It’s the way you feel about somebody and the commitment in your heart”.
