Mariah Carey loses baby weight

Mariah Carey has lost 70lbs just six months after giving birth to twins, following a healthy eating plan.


She may have only given birth to twins six months ago, but Mariah Carey has already lost an astonishing 32kg (70lb) by following a healthy eating regime.


The singer, who started the diet six weeks after having Moroccan and Monroe, lost 18kg (40lbs) of water weight in the first week.

‘In the beginning I had so much oedema – water and swelling – I didn’t think I’d ever be the same person,’ she said.

Carey credits the Jenny Craig diet for getting back in shape. Now an ambassador for the company, she ate 1500 calories a day and worked out three times a week.

‘Being pregnant felt longer than it was. It was a huge blessing to be able to have the babies but I felt trapped in my body because I couldn’t move,’ said Carey.


The 42-year-old star started the diet six weeks after giving birth via caesarean section in May 2011.
