Mariah Carey finds it tough maintaining her fabulous figure because fatty food is fun and dieting is "boring".
The 38-year-old stays in shape thanks to a gruelling workout and a restrictive eating regime.
And she admits she pines for something tasty to eat.
She says, "Working out and dieting and eating boring food. I can't go to the barbeque spot."
But she does concede the diet is working, and she feels good when she is fit: "I need to work out more. But the diet thing is what works best for me. But it's good for health. It's good to be healthy, yes? Everybody needs to be how ever they feel best, that's what I think."
