Mariah Carey was born on March 27, 1970 in Huntington, Long Island, New York. She is an record producer, American R&B and pop singer and songwriter, and actress. Mariah Carey has one of the exquisite bodies in the industry, needless to mention, her perfect pair of legs. And of course everyone wants to know her secret, to shape their body with Mariah Carey workout and diet.
Mariah Carey is 5′ 9″ and weighs about 135 pounds. She doesn’t have a scale.
Mariah Carey has a healthy attitude about her weight, saying, “I don’t feel like you have to be a size zero. We should all just embrace who we are physically. I’m not supposed to be a stick figure girl. It’s just not me.”
Mariah Carey’s Workout
Mariah’s diet and exercise plan designed by Patricia Guy is very exercise intensive. Moreover, she spends about 90 minutes, most days of the week, working out with her trainer. Since she loves spending time in the water, her trainer designed a planned that allows her to dive in. In addition to doing the exercise in an environment she enjoys, water creates a strong resistance making workouts more intense.
Her exercise regimen is as follows:
- Warmup is 20 minutes in the pool, lake or ocean doing breaststroke, water jogging and dolphin kicks
- 30 minutes of full-body work in the water. She uses a “noodle” float for kicking, “bicycling” and kickboxing
- Up to 45 minutes of a yoga/pilates combination, as well as crunches.
Mariah Carey’s Diet
Mariah describes her diet as “bleak” and I must say I appreciate her honesty. For example, she limits her food intake mostly to soup and fish prepared “really blandly.” Well, she is getting her lean protein, but I don’t think a diet of boring food is something anyone can stick to in the long term.
Mariah’s daily menu:
BREAKFAST: “A two-egg omelet with fruit and maybe a piece of bread if her weight is good. Now she know how to balance her food intake with her activity level. Therefore, she knows if she is having a very physically active day, she can have a bit more.”
LUNCH: Protein, such as fish, chicken or steak. “She really loves steak. Protein is good for the muscles, and you don’t feel hunger afterward,” explains Patricia.
DINNER: Protein and vegetables, such as swordfish and spinach. “Nothing fried, but a little oil or butter is alright.”
SNACKS: “Snacking is Mariah’s big challenge. The last time I was with her about two weeks ago, I tried to have her snack on apple sauce or raw vegetables – something light.”
