Mariah is totally into aubergine


American Idol judge Mariah Carey, 42, is looking super-svelte – and it’s down to her ‘purple’ diet.

She began the plan – which involves eating only purple foods three days a week – to shed the Christmas pounds.

A source says: ‘It’s all about foods like plums, red grapes and aubergine.

‘Her favourite meal is a Cajun-spiced aubergine dish that her husband Nick [Cannon] makes.

‘She’s lost 10lb, and loves it because for she can eat whatever she wants the rest of the time!’
