American Idol season 4 champion,Â Carrie Underwood has a body any girl would envy. The slender star says it’s not easy to maintain her svelte body, especially when she spends so much time touring with her band.Â ”I think the hardest thing about what I do is eating [healthy] because we’re all over the place,” Underwood says.Â ”It’s fast food, there’s aftershow food, you get pizza, whatever.Â I don’t do that. I don’t eat out ever.”
Carrie Underwood says that avoiding fast food is certainly a challenge when she’s on the road, but she takes steps to be prepared and she’s not afraid to indulge occasionally.Â ”Every once in a while I have a day off and I might go to a restaurant — but no aftershow food and I keep my fridge stocked,” theÂ American Idol star says.
The singer also says she makes “a point to get up and work out” before she takes the stage to perform. It may not always be easy, but Underwood says her fit and healthy lifestyle is all about being aware and making the effort.Â ”It’s all about making a conscious effort. I don’t do anything crazy, but I definitely try to take care of myself,” she says.
