Nick Carters Diet Secrets Exposed!
Move over, Joey Fatone! There's a new boy-bander looking to hog the slimmed-down spotlight.
I can exclusively report that Nick Carter has secretly shed-ready for this?-30 pounds in just six weeks. His rep tells me he's been working with a personal trainer on a daily basis and using the NutriSystem diet program.
But the Backstreet Boy is not ready to reveal his new physique, because he wants to lose another five pounds. "He's purposely been keeping low and not going out," a source tells me. "He looks really good, though." (The prediet photo here is from about 10 months ago.)
Like Carter, Fatone recently admitted to using NutriSystem-along with his Dancing with the Stars regimen-to lose at least 20 pounds.
Just a couple of weeks ago, I chatted with Fatone at Nancy Davis and Tommy Hilfiger's Race to Erase MS gala. He told me it was all about cutting down on the size of his servings. "It's all about portions," Fatone said. "Instead of a whole pizza pie, just one slice now!"
His waistline isn't the only thing Carter's been working on. His rep says he'll soon give acting a shot when he starts shooting Fast Glass, an independent film with Andrew Keegan.
The rep also said the Backstreet Boys' long-delayed comeback album is close to being finished. Once it's released, the group will probably tour England and then the U.S.
Of course, I wouldn't be surprised to find Carter popping up in next season's Dancing with the Stars.
