Miranda Lambert: ‘I’ve been on every diet’

Miranda Lambert has tried “every diet” out there to try and lose weight but none of them have stuck.

In an interview with Health, the country singer revealed that she has struggled with her fluctuating weight her whole life and has tried a variety of diet plans in an attempt to shed some pounds. However, Miranda would always find that the weight would creep back on as soon as she finished a diet, and now, she’s not bothering with any set fitness or food regimens.

“I don’t have any rhyme or reason to my fitness routine or dieting. I’ve been on every diet,” she shared. “Every time I did low-carb, I would gain (the weight) back so quickly. Sometimes I have a couple weeks where I just drink beer and eat cheeseburgers. And then I’ll go, ‘That was fun, but my stuff doesn’t fit.’ Then I’ll spend a month doing Pilates or riding a lot and running. I’m not a runner, but I’m trying to be one.”


The House That Built Me singer occasionally goes for a run with her husband, policeman Brendan McLoughlin, but she joked that he does it out of pity.

“He does a pity run with me, and then he does his real run. It’s sad. These days, I just try to feel good about myself and know that I’m trying. And if there’s wine and cheese, sometimes I have it,” the 36-year-old added.

Although Miranda can usually be found glammed up on stage, she also admitted that she feels the “prettiest” when she’s working on her farm in Nashville, Tennessee.

“Honestly, I feel my prettiest when I have on a ball cap, no make-up, and cutoff jeans, and I’m at my farm just with dirt and dogs all around me. That’s where I feel my truest self,” she insisted.
