Carrie and her husband, NHL star Mike Fisher, welcomed their first child Isaiah in February, and the "Something in the Water" singer says she started to work on getting healthy as soon as she was physically able to.
"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.
