Carrie Underwood's Secrets for Healthy Living -- On and Off the Road

The country music star talks about her diet, her exercise, her dog, and how she handles her fear of crowds.

More Healthy Road Rules

Along with healthy food, Underwood makes sure that she -- and everyone on her tour -- has plenty of water. "In our catering area we have this huge table of supplements for people -- little things like vitamin C, echinacea, stuff like that, because if one person gets a cold, everybody's getting a cold." And she regularly hits the local gym. "If I can wake up and I go get a good cardio session in," she says, "a class at a gym nearby, or me on the treadmill, I'm happier throughout the day."

She also tries to get plenty of rest, but that's not easy on the road. Her post-show ritual is basically the same every night: She boards the tour bus, swabs off the makeup, and tries to climb into bed by midnight. But as the bus speeds toward her next destination, her head is buzzing from the show, and adrenaline is coursing through her veins. Who can sleep?

"I'm still kind of on a high," she says. "The show is so loud and there are so many lights that it's kind of hard to come down off of that sometimes. But you get used to it. And before you know it, when the tour's over, I'm going to go home and have trouble sleeping in a bed that's not going 70 miles an hour down the road."

Carrie Underwood and Panic Attacks

The energy Underwood gets from the crowd is gratifying, but when she's offstage, large numbers of people can be harder to handle. The previous day, she was in an elevator in a hotel that was hosting a big convention. "Every floor we stopped on, we'd cram more people in, and by the time we were done, there was just a ton of people," she recalls.

"So I start thinking about all the bad things that can happen, and I'm like, 'I've got to get off the elevator, I need to get off the elevator.'" She laughs. "Of course, I made it down to the ground level. So it was OK. But I was just like, 'No more stops, please, no more stops!'"
