The notoriously fit 32-year-old pop star admitted that she felt like 'a mess' after giving birth to one-year-old Willow Sage last June.
She told Cosmopolitan magazine that although she occasionally eats chicken and fish, her new diet even turns vegan, meaning no animal products, at times.

Her typical workout also involves one-hour of cardio and an additional hour of strength-training or yoga.
