Celebrities are always pressured to look great and be in a perfect body shape. And this also seems to be the case of Carrie Underwood, who claimed that she actually used pills in her struggle with body image issues. According to Carrie, she used to take diet pills with the purpose to maintain her weight.

"I was taking things with ephedra in it," she revealed during an interview with People magazine. "It wasn't the best way," she admitted. Carrie went on to explain that comments and expectations make people think that they should change something in the way they eat, to lose weight.


"I knew that I weighed more than I had ever weighed before," she said. "But then as soon as you start making little tweaks, people immediately go, 'You look so great!' Then you start wondering, 'How bad did I look before?' Then it's like, 'Well, I guess I should keep on going.' Then you start eating less," Carrie explained.

Carrie also confessed that she was not eating right because she had no idea how many calories she should consume. "I wasn't eating enough calories, but it wasn't because I was trying to starve myself. I just didn't know how many calories I should be eating." Of course, things have much changed since those days.

Now, Carrie is enjoying a vegan diet and the star claimed that she also works out each day, leading a healthy lifestyle. Carrie welcomed her first child, a baby boy, back in February. The star wanted to gain back her slim figure after the pregnancy and she was determined to lose the extra pounds. Carrie previously confessed that she exercised during the pregnancy, also saying that she was quite lucky that she only gained 30 pounds.

Besides working out each day, Carrie is also careful at what she eats. The star revealed that she is vegan and she also adopted a new strategy in her eating habits, eliminating bread from her dinners. Without a doubt, her diet is working, as Carrie is looking absolutely great.
