“It’s really hard,” Carey said during an E! News interview in 2016. “My diet — you would hate it. All you eat is Norwegian salmon and capers every day — that’s it.”
She further clarified saying she tries to “stick to the proteins” and that it’s “the worst.”
Although eating protein can help keep you satiated, eating nothing but salmon means you won’t get critical nutrients found foods like vegetables, fruits, and grains. It should go without saying that Carey’s diet isn’t sustainable for the long term.
Grammy-winning singer Mariah Carey wows fans not only with her magical voice but also with her incredible body transformation in recent years. In 2017, she was reported to have shed 25 pounds.
She showed off her slim figure at the AHF World AIDS Day concert and 30th Anniversary celebration at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California. Her fit physique was accentuated by her curve-hugging black Georgine gown.
The singer’s weight loss came at a time when she had major life changes.
Despite her hectic schedule, Carey has not allowed her fitness regimen to take a back seat. At one point, she even showed off a workout routine while wearing stilettos.
The “Bye Bye” singer shared one of her secrets to staying fit: sticking to protein. She mostly ate salmon. While this restriction in her diet was not her favorite part of her fitness journey, she said it has worked for her.
Sticking to lean protein was only one of her dietary techniques. The singer also cut out processed sugar from her diet.
according to Inquisitr, the singer has lost over 30 pounds since her surgery late last year.
For those who don’t know, gastric sleeve surgery decreases the size of your stomach so you can’t eat as much as you could before. However, in order to maintain weight loss, a healthy diet and exercise are still necessary.
Meanwhile, Carey recently opened up about an unforgettable experience she had with Ellen DeGeneres. The singer talked about her 2008 interview on the embattled host’s show.
During her appearance on the show, the host coaxed her to announce her pregnancy. Carey recalled feeling uneasy during the interview.
