Many have speculated about the somewhat-recent weight loss of country music star Miranda Lambert, wondering if she’d undergone surgery—she didn’t.

She lost weight through regular exercise and a portion-controlled healthy diet. Bacon and eggs were swapped for green juice at breakfast, and chicken and sweet potatoes replaced cheeseburgers and steaks.

For her exercise routine, she mixed it up with jogging, horseback riding, walking, cardio, and circuit training with her trainer.

As a result, she dropped two dress sizes, going from a size eight to a six.

She’s lost between 30 and 45 pounds since 2012.

Miranda Lambert’s Daily Diet Routine

What is Miranda Lambert’s weight loss diet? Let’s take a look:

  • Breakfast: She eliminated high-calorie breakfasts often consisting of eggs, potatoes, bacon, and toast, and sometimes pancakes. Now she has a nutrient-dense vegetable and fruit juice that contains lots of green vegetables such as spinach, celery, or kale, and some fruit for a sweetener such as an apple or a pineapple.
  • Lunch: Instead of having turkey and cheese sandwiches, she eats salads with a low-calorie salad dressing, and topped with grilled chicken or salmon. Sometimes she would also have some mixed nuts or raw almond butter. The key at lunch was to eliminate bread.
  • Dinner: Miranda Lambert also chose healthy dinners featuring seafood, grilled chicken, or lean cuts of steak. She sometimes eats rice and potatoes, and tends to skip dessert.
    Snacks: She likes to snack on almonds, or might have a piece of fruit.

Although rumors first speculated that Miranda Lambert had weight loss surgery, the country singer’s lifestyle begs to differ. Lambert enjoys a diet with healthy foods such as chicken and green juice. Overall, a healthy weight-loss program should avoid sugar and processed foods, and contain lots of vegetables and other whole foods.
