Mariah Carey Lost 70 lbs! How did she do it without meds?

Mariah Carey Weight Loss: How the “Emotions“” Singer Lost 70 Pounds

Mariah Carey’s weight has fluctuated throughout her career, but the singer’s results weren’t from the popular weight loss drugs that everyone is clinging to. Instead, she attributes her figure to old-fashioned diet and exercise.

In 2017, she underwent gastric bypass surgery to shrink her stomach. The surgery resulted in a 30lb weight loss, but it still wasn’t enough.

After giving birth to twins Moroccan and Monroe Cannon in 2011 (with her spouse Nick Cannon), Mariah Carey has often attributed her dramatic weight loss to an improved diet and exercise. Carey swears by a high-protein, low-carb diet consisting of salmon, capers, and veggies while sticking to 1,500 calories per day.

Capers are loaded with antioxidants, improve gut function, and effectively fight against metabolic diseases Moreover, she incorporated clean, whole foods in her diet, increased the quantity of vegetables, and cut out bread and refined carbs. Sources also reveal that Carey has almost completely cut off processed sugars and refined carbohydrates from her diet. She has cut out chocolate and highly processed desserts and replaced them with fresh fruit such as blueberries or mango. 

She also works out three times a week, mixing 60 to 90 minutes of cardio with strength training.

Well done Mariah!~
