American singer Mariah Carey adheres to the idea that a woman shouldn’t be skinny, so she does not sit on exhausting diets.
However, the 46-year-old star can boast of beautiful figure that attracts attention of many men and of her shapely legs that at one time were considered perhaps the best in show business.
Of course, Mariah also tried strict diets. So, after a hard pregnancy and complicated childbirth in order to fight with overweight she resorted to tough nutrition program. Then she surprised the world dropping about 13 kilos in a few months after the appearance of twins.
The base of Mariah Carey’s diet was in the severe restriction of consumed calories. Diet started from 1500 kcal per day, then was allowed to eat not more than 1200 kcal per day.
The singer had to follow very strict restrictions. The diet suggested only cottage cheese, low-fat yogurt, lean meat and fish. Under the ban occurred also simple and fast carbohydrates, fast food, sweets, alcohol and flour. Emphasis was placed on complex carbohydrates and proteins – vegetables, grains and fruits.
In addition, Mariah ate often, but in small portions, so that was possible to control the calories and not feel hunger. But there is another secret.
The star arranged a 45-minute workout five or six times a week. Without sports loads, as Mariah believes, it’s impossible to obtain a great figure. It is no accident the star with a great passion almost every day is engaged in aqua aerobics.
Possible menu of such diet for the day includes oatmeal and skim milk for breakfast, snack with olives, tuna and a little of leaf lettuce for lunch. Before dinner she could eat an orange and for dinner she took chicken fajitas or diet pizza.
