The country superstar often mesmerises fans with her stunning appearances and has learned to love the body she's in after admitting she has "struggled" with her weight in the past. "My whole life, I’ve struggled with ups and downs in weight," she previously said. "I’m only 5'4" so weight shows quickly on me."

"I'm not naturally small," she once told Good Housekeeping. "And I'm fine with that, because so many girls come up to me and say, 'Thank you for being normal-sized — it gives us hope that you don't have to be a size 2 to be somebody.'"

Back when she was about to turn 30, Miranda worked out with her personal trainer doing cardio and circuit training for four months to drop a dress size ahead of her milestone celebration.

Miranda loves Southern food

What does Miranda Lambert eat for lunch?

Miranda has been known to get her five-a-day in just one meal by preparing a big pot of vegetable soup. She also enjoys a glass of green juice at least once per day, explaining to Women's Health: "So if I don't eat anything else green that day, I feel like I've got my green in."

Another healthy option she swears by is her tried-and-tested recipe of grilled chicken breast and sweet potato salad. There may even be occasions where she indulges in fried food, as she once told Southern Living: "Every good southern woman should learn to change a tire, drive a tractor and cook something fried."

What does Miranda Lambert eat for a snack?

Miranda used to enjoy snacking on Froot Loop cereal bars but has switched up her diet for healthier options thanks to her life on the road. "I live on a bus. You're just sitting there all day, and you start getting snack-y," she explained to Good Housekeeping.

"I don't keep chips, because I'll eat them all." Now, she reaches for carrots and a low-fat dip or a serving of nuts and a piece of turkey.

Miranda admits she has tried every diet

What does Miranda Lambert eat for dinner?

Miranda is a big fan of home-cooking, especially her mother's meatloaf. "It's been the choice 'birthday dish' for me and my brother since we were little," she told Southern Living.

Another family favourite is her mother's enchiladas. "We are from Texas where Mexican food is a staple weekly dish for most families," she added. "Mom's enchiladas would stand up against anybody's!"

What is Miranda Lambert's workout routine?

Miranda is the first to admit there is no "rhyme or reason to my fitness routine", but she does have a few activities she enjoys like Pilates and horse-riding.

She also likes to switch up her cardio routine by doing jumping jacks or run-walking because she "hates running", but is encouraged by her husband Brendan McLoughlin.

"He does a pity run with me, and then he does his real run. It’s sad," she told Health. "These days, I just try to feel good about myself and know that I’m trying."
