He has since then maintained his healthy weight and here, the hunk shares on how motivation and discipline played a part on his way to success.

“My weight loss has really been because of watching calories,”  Nick recalls. "I watched what I ate, and ate in moderation."

Nick Carter’s exercise routine is done together with his personal trainer Mike Hazards. He also loves boxing, an activity considered as a serious workout that burns as much as 400 to 1,000 calories per hour which works almost all muscles of the body.

"I like it when people look at me now and don’t recognize me from House of Carters." He says. "Dieting is a job. It’s hard work, but the results are definitely worth it."
