Dolly Parton discusses her diet

Dolly Parton eats what she wants at the weekends.

The country music legend watches her weight – apart from on weekends and holidays.

“I do have to watch my weight because I’m only 5ft and you can’t hold on to too much weight when you’re so short,” she said.

“So I stay on a low-carb diet pretty much through the week and eat what I want on weekends. And of course nothing matters on Thanksgiving and Christmas!”

Dolly also revealed that she likes to look good for her husband.

“I don’t want to look good for everyone else and like a slouch for him! So even if we’re just driving around in our RV camper and hitting all the local fast food joints I’ll tease my hair and put it up in a little scrunchie,” she said.
