Carrie Underwood recently revealed several of his weight loss tips that helped her shed the baby weight quickly. Besides using a personal trainer, Carrie Underwood revealed she used to some unhealthy weight loss tips in the past. Let’s take a look at them:

Extreme vegan diet

Carrie Underwood went on an extreme vegan diet. She did not take meat dairy, including meat, eggs and even honey. She also tried to avoid using any products that come from animals, such as leather wool silk for a cosmetics or soaps derived from animal products.

According to doctors, being on a vegan diet means you’re consuming a more natural planted-based diet of fruits, vegetables and nuts. it is important to know that and vegans does not necessarily equal healthy. If you were eating natural wholesome fruits and vegetables that is fantastic. However, if you find yourself eating fried foods or junk foods high in trans-fats, it is not a healthy lifestyle, also be careful of the not so healthy processed foods.

One risk is, after taking vegan diet for a long period of time, Vitamin B12 deficiency, which is found in meat, eggs and fish and deficient in B12 will possibly cause neurological deficits, depression and low energy also at risk of having low protein iron calcium and vitamin D, which can lead to lower bone mineral density. However if you are thinking of going vegan, there are ways to supplement these nutrients to decrease your risk.

One other thing I recommend is to be cautious with any extreme or drastic change in your diet, this can trigger cravings which may lead to overeating and even eating disorder. You should discuss with your physician if there are any concerns prior to jazz to changing it up.

Banned dietary supplements

Carrie Underwood used to take dietary supplements that contain Ephedra to lose weight. Ephedra has in fact been banned by U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2004.

“I was taking things with ephedra in it, It wasn’t the best way. If I could go back and talk to myself I’d be like, ‘Here’s how you do it the right way.'”

Starving

Carrie also starved herself to lose weight:

“I wasn’t eating enough calories, but it wasn’t because I was trying to starve myself,” she said. “I just didn’t know how many calories I should be eating.”
