Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter talks about losing 65 pounds and regaining his life.
Every time I hear another story about exercise saving someone’s life, I get a warm feeling inside. The latest comes from Nick Carter from the Backstreet Boys. Exercise helped Carter lose 65 pounds. After overcoming addiction and a serious heart condition, he wrote about his travails in his new book, “Facing the Music and Living to Talk About It.”
Tell me about your heart problems. You were only 28. That must have really freaked you out.
I was on tour in Europe, and I was partying every night and really depressed. I ended up in Russia, and I remember I was trying to keep up with the local Russians in drinking games and I was feeling terrible. I couldn’t perform on stage to my usual standards, and afterward I went to the doctor, who told me I had drug- and alcohol-induced cardiomyopathy that was weakening my heart. It was a warning that if I stayed on that path I would die.
That must have been a major wake-up call.
The doctor read me the riot act. It really was life or death for me. He said I needed to stop drinking completely. I was overweight and I needed to change, so I just completely went extreme in the other direction. I wanted to fight for my life, so I sobered up. I quit alcohol for a year and stopped taking drugs. A year later the doctor said he couldn’t see the inflammation in my heart anymore.
What kind of role did exercise play in the change?
Exercise has absolutely been a replacement reward for me. It releases chemicals into your body that make you feel better and think more clearly. Once you know how you feel with a hangover and you compare it to how you feel after a workout, it’s a much better high. Your body doesn’t want to be poisoned with alcohol. Every now and then I have a drink, but I don’t like the way it makes me feel, so I’m still battling it. I’m working toward a future where I just don’t drink at all anymore, drinking less and less and working out more and more and eating better and focusing on my work. Read the rest of this entry »

Backstreet Boys star Nick Carter has no qualms about returning to reality TV after fans watched him spiral out of control on his family show House Of Carters – because he likes the idea of viewers seeing the real Nick now he’s drug-free.
The pop star accepts he was a mess when he made House of Carters seven years ago, but now he’s in a much better space with his fiancee Lauren Kitt, and he can’t wait to show the world how much he has changed on his upcoming, as-yet-untitled series.
Carter tells ABC News, “That was a train wreck show. That’s what it was. There was no thought behind it. Just put a bunch of people in a house that have issues and ‘let ‘em explode’.
“The (new) show is based on my future marriage with my fiancee, and us basically making it – starting over again, creating a new and better life. That’s what our relationship has been based off of – helping each other evolve. I think it can be very inspirational to the world out there.
“I thought about it, and who I am now, versus the person I was before, and I’m completely different. I’m almost not afraid – actually, I’m not afraid to show the world who I am now. I’m not afraid to show that I am weak at times, but I am making it. It’s not easy, and it’s a process, but it’ll be interesting to show the world. It’s gonna be cool.” [Source]

The Backstreet Boys topped the charts in the late 1990s and early 2000s. But, the success did not help fellow member Nick Carter.
“It was definitely the reason why things escalated, family problems, the dysfunction; all those things were there,” Carter said. “I think [the success] kind of just made it worse.”
In his new memoir, Facing the Music and Living To Talk About It, Carter talks about drug and alcohol addictions, relationship with ex-girlfriend Paris Hilton and the death of his younger sister Leslie from an overdose last year.
He says he regrets his past party lifestyle but hopes the self-help advice in the book helps readers overcome their own obstacles.
Carter credits a lot of his recovery to bandmate Kevin Richardson, who gave
him Norman Vincent Peale’s self-help book, Why Some Positive Thinkers Get Powerful Results during the height of his struggles back in 2004. Read the rest of this entry »

Backstreet Boys star Nick Carter regrets his decade-long battle with drugs and alcohol because it led to depression, which he still has to deal with.
Now six years sober, the pop star opens up about the extent of his abuse issues in his new memoir, Facing the Music and Living to Talk About It, revealing that during the height of his problems, he took Ecstasy pills, cocaine and drank a large bottle of vodka a night.
He tells In Touch magazine, “I regret taking Ecstasy. The amount I did caused changes to my brain that are responsible for my bouts of depression now.”
Carter also details his romance with ex-girlfriend Paris Hilton in the book, and admits she was the wrong person for him at the lowest time of his life.
He adds, “(She) fed my worst impulses as far as partying.” [Source]
