Carrie Underwood worked very hard, including regulating her diet, to maintain her body and 'Feel Good about Herself.'


Carrie Marie Underwood is a successful singer by many accounts. She is a seven times Grammy Award winner, eleven times Billboard Music Awards Winner, and American Music Awards winner.

While many would think these awards are enough to keep anyone happy, Underwood revealed there is more to be satisfied.

In a recent interview with "Women's Health," the 36-year-old songwriter spoke on how she worked on feeling good about herself following her first CMA Awards in November 2005.

In the past years, the "Jesus Take The Wheel" performer had tried to stick to a regimented diet with no luck. No matter how hard she tried, she always went back to her feeding habits.

The actress wished there was a source that could provide her with enough knowledge of her to meet her goal; unfortunately, she found none.


Recently, the singer-turned-author announced her book: "Find Your Path: Honor Your Body, Fuel Your Soul, and Get Strong With Fit52Life." The book is a manual to help those who want to keep fit without indulging in lousy feeding habits.

While she was pregnant with her first son, Isaiah Michael Fisher, Underwood told "People" that she expected the worst after her son's birth.

Carrie Underwood is a publically declared vegetarian and "wannabe vegan." She abandoned meat consumption when she saw her favorite calves being neutered.


The "Before He Cheats" singer shared that she tracked her computation calories and other food nutrients via the app MyFitnessPal. She had a maximum for carbs, fat, and protein consumption.

The "American Idol" winner revealed that her regimented lifestyle made her feel good about herself and helped her structure her life. In her words:

"I love rules. This is how I feel good about myself, and this is how I operate." 


Sometimes, the artist expects the worst and gets the best. While she was pregnant with her first son, Isaiah Michael Fisher, Underwood told "People" that she expected the worst after her son's birth.

The professional hockey player and his wife were surprised when their first three years with their son went on smoothly and pleasantly. She described the ability as all "happy and smiley and gorgeous."

The mother of two met her husband, Mike Fisher, at one of her concerts in 2008. They got engaged the following year and got married on July 10, 2010, at The Ritz-Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation in Greensboro, Georgia.

Their first child, as a couple, Isaiah Michael Fisher, was born in 2015. They welcomed their second son, Jacob Bryan Fisher, in 2019
