Q & A With Carrie Ann Inaba

continued...

We’ve gotten back to the core of the show: people who don’t know how to dance, learning how to dance. There are a lot of not-so-great dancers, and they’re attacking it with their heart and soul. In the end, this is a show about transformation and taking on fears in a very public way.

What's your diet these days?

I was pescetarian [someone who eats fish, but not meat] for a year and a half. As part of my love of animals, I’ve never felt right about eating animals. But I had a severe iron deficiency and had to start eating meat again. I’m being very careful about how the meat is prepared. I’d like to get off meat completely again, but I have to do it with a better plan to get the vitamins and minerals my body needs.

And how about your workout routine?

I do a workout called "Drenched," by Michael Blanks -- the brother of Billy Blanks. It’s like going to a nightclub at 7 in the morning, with kickboxing and dancing. I also do yoga, and I do weight training two to three times a week. You don’t have to kill yourself; just focus on the muscles that need to be toned.
