Trisha Yearwood talks about her recent weight loss during the Academy of Country Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

“I’ve been dieting and exercising and I’ve lost about 20 pounds,” Yearwood said. She wowed her fans by showing off her slim body on Sunday.

The Grammy winner, cookbook author and star of the Food Network’s Trisha’s Southern Kitchen says she tries to avoid sugar, but does indulge in mac and cheese once in a while.

“Real people battle their weight,” she said. “We all struggle between eating healthy and falling off the wagon. That’s how I live!”

Her representative told E! News Yearwood also has been focusing on exercise to maintain her shape.

“Trisha has always been a successful, shapely bombshell. Recently she has taken her fitness routine to a new level,” the publicist said.

“One of the ways she has done that is by mixing it up and making exercising fun. As the host of ‘Trisha’s Southern Kitchen,’ she still makes her traditional recipes like mac and cheese and country quiche, but those dishes are balanced with the moderation she has always spoken about.”
