Trisha Yearwood had tried dieting a lot of times in the past in an effort to achieve weight loss. However, back in 2013, the then-48-year-old country singer lost 30 pounds in merely four months.
Her secret, you might wonder? Workout and adopting her own personalized diet.
The singer told People,
I designed my own plan that’s low-fat, low-sugar 90 percent of the time.
The majority of the day, she eats her usual, quasi-healthy food, then goes to Zumba the following day to exercise. She added,
I have a strength I never had before. I feel like I can do anything.Advertisement
Yearwood said she’s dropped from a “tight size 14” to a pleasant size 10, and she’s glad she discovered a schedule that works for her.
I don’t think you can name one diet I haven’t done. I’m that girl who buys every magazine where somebody’s lost 30 lbs.
But now she’s worked out how to lose some lbs.
I guess a part of me didn’t want to hear that it’s just really hard work!
In addition to her country music career, Yearwood is hosting the “Trisha’s Southern Kitchen” culinary show on the Food Network.

Trisha Yearwood’s Weight Loss Secrets
Trisha Yearwood shed weight but pulled it back — often with a bonus — more times than she could count.
Like many Americans, the singer comes from a household that is “genetically and habitually predisposed to be heavy,” she says. Country recipes and Southern cuisine became symbols of passion at their home in Monticello, GA.
And the singer acknowledges she’s kept unhealthy eating patterns even though every member of her family “got healthy.” Following a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes in the late 80s, Yearwood’s father stopped smoking and severely cut back on fats and sugars.
“He wound up doing really well,” she says; her father was 72 years old (he died in 2005). Also, Beth, the older sister of Yearwood, got pregnant at 39.
She said, ‘I want to be healthy for my child.’ She became a runner and lost about 60 pounds, and she’s maintained that for over 10 years!
Trisha’s grandmother, diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009, converted to vegetarian diets shortly afterward, which she adopted until her death in 2011.
I believe her diet gave her more time, and quality time. I really started to think about what I put into my body.Advertisement
In reality, Yearwood felt conflicted for years about why she couldn’t flip the switch and — like those she cherished and respected the most, whose genes she shared — get serious about nutrition and lifestyle.
Especially because of the business I am in, I was always like, ‘I want this.’ I wanted to be healthier, to be thinner. I hate to admit this, but I didn’t want to do what it takes to get there. I had a trainer I would work out with, and then I’d counteract what I did with her.
Trisha Yearwood would finish her workouts, go to shoot her cooking program, make something amazingly-yummy, have a “taste” on the camera, and then consume more on set as well as home.
The singer reveals the number of times she began a diet “to look good at an awards show” is countless and didn’t come close to achieving weight loss.
I wanted a quick fix. I want the pill they advertise on TV that melts the fat, but I don’t think that exists.Advertisement
And she was overweight. Trisha says her caloric sins are absolutely ordinary.
It’s not like I’m living at Cinnabon. I just really like to cook and bake and be in our kitchen.
There was also a topic about portion size. To Yearwood, whoever served was always whatever was left. “And I’m a late-night eater,” she sighs. “I’ll be like, I’ll just have a banana. Then I’ll eat a handful of pretzels…then a brick of cheese.”
Trisha Yearwood’s Diet Do-Over
With as much diet and exercise as she had, Trisha Yearwood understood the truth: “All diets work if you eat less and exercise more. And none work if you don’t do those things.”
But she started criticizing her instructor. “We did circuit training,” Yearwood groans. She even began intaking breakfast. The singer said:
Every health expert tells you to eat breakfast. I had the mentality, I’ll save those calories! But then you are starving, and you overeat.Advertisement
For a good month, Yearwood was completely “hard-core and boring.” She did not follow any particular diet; she consumed only strictly what she knew from her years of experimenting at the center of any legitimate weight loss plan — fruits, veggies, and lean protein.
Once per week, Trisha Yearwood prepared seven days of food and snacks from the “good” stuff she loves — cabbage, vegetables, sweet potatoes, cucumbers, tomatoes, grapefruit, and chicken grilled.
I made it simple [and very low-calorie] because I knew I wouldn’t stay on it unless I saw results fast.
Trisha also removed “white food” such as sugar, spaghetti, and white bread, recognizing it was nutritionally hollow and could contribute to over-indulgence.
Yearwood told nobody she was trying to undergo weight loss. “I didn’t want that ‘I thought you were on a diet’ remark [if I did overeat],” she says. She was pretty terrified to be a failure again.
And within 30 days, Brooks noticed, “You’re really eating kind of lean.”
“I’m doing a cleanse,” she responded.
Yearwood understood, though, that she would never be able to keep the Spartan diet long. She had to overcome her night snacking, too, a more demanding challenge than it could have been.
Even when we’re not touring, Garth and I still have that musician mentality. We don’t want to go to bed at night.
To curb her late-night snacking, the singer used to avoid it as much as she could. Trisha remained far from the kitchen — basically at the back of the house, her hands occupied.
