LeAnn Rimes is a foodie

LeAnn Rimes claims she only goes to the gym so she can eat whatever she wants.

The country music singer, who has been forced to defend her slender figure in the past, admits she exercises almost every day so she can indulge in her favourite food.

The 33-year-old star said: "I love food and I literally work out so I can eat what I want. Because I love food and wine and I love tequila and that's what I want. I want to be able to eat and drink."

While she previously hated training, the blonde beauty has learned to love exercise in recent years.

She told the DailyMail.com: "I've learned to enjoy it. I've learned to find workouts that I really enjoy. I do everything from boxing to Pilates."

But the 'Can't Fight the Moonlight' hitmaker, who is working on a new album, still finds it difficult to stick to her routine when she's touring.

She explained: "I think it's about consistency. Really, for me, it's so hard to work out when I'm on the road because it's like you're in a different city every night and you're trying to find the energy or the time, or whatever it may be.

"I've learned those moments when I really don't feel like doing it are the moments I have to do it. To me it's consistency. It's really about getting your butt up when you really don't want to and doing it."
