4 Ways Tim McGraw Maintains The Most Cut Body In Country Music



In 1999, country star Tim McGraw hit number one on Billboard’s Hot Country Singles and Tracks with “My Next Thirty Years,” a feel-good jam that lays out his hopes and dreams for the next part of his life. In his next 30 years, McGraw croons, he’ll watch his weight, “eat a few more salads and not stay up so late, drink a little lemonade and not so many beers.” It was a nice dream for McGraw, who was then known for his hit songs and a love of whiskey.

Here’s the thing, though: It all came true. A few years back, McGraw quit drinking and dropped some serious weight; now 47, McGraw is in better shape than most of his 20-something country cohorts. He’s nixed the beer (though no word on whether he’s replaced it with lemonade), and credits a healthy diet and exercise with keeping him in shape and energized enough to keep up with a crazy work schedule — and be there for his family. Now, he’s heading up America’s Diabetes Challenge, helping those living with type 2 diabetes to live healthier lives.
