"After I had Isaiah, my goal was to take control of my body again," Carrie shared. "I was lucky: I gained only 30 pounds, which is the recommended amount, and I exercised throughout my pregnancy."
However, due to having to deliver Isaiah via C-section, Carrie had to wait six weeks before she could begin working out.
"Within 20 days, though, I was able to begin walking slowly on the treadmill and around my neighborhood. It felt so good to be active," the seven-time GRAMMY winner recounted. "Now we box and we hike trails, among other things. I like to continually mix up my routines to stay motivated."
Aside from working out, Carrie has another fitness trick that's helped her shed the baby weight: She's a vegan
and she's also started to cut carbs.
"I’m vegan and I love bread, but recently, I started making dinner a breadless meal. I’ll have a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast, and I’ll make a sandwich on Ezekiel bread for lunch, but in the evening I’ll have protein and vegetables and no bread," Carrie shared. "When I wake up, my belly is flat!"
Turns out that a good old-fashioned diet and exercise can work like a charm.
