While Carrie is adamant she will never eat meat again, she is drawn to the thought of having her own farm and consuming her own produce saying "...if I could raise my own cows and chickens and produce my own eggs and cheese, it would be awesome! " Carrie explains her motivations for becoming vegan by saying, "my veganism is based on a concern about where my food is coming from."
To achieve her body and fitness goals, Carrie religiously keeps a food journal, which can be a helpful tool in managing your food intake and exercise regime. She also avoids stodgy foods explaning to Self, "I lay off starches. I'm not a fan of the nocarb thing; you're going to get yourself in trouble that way. So I have lots of veggies and fruit but no other starches or bread."
To keep her body in check, Carrie works out with a trainer and is dedicated to incorporating exercise into her daily life. "In the beginning, my biggest fear was being criticized. Now I'm a lot better with saying, I feel good about myself and that's enough."
