Lisa Marie Presley is back at her "teenage" weight after she wised up about her health and started making better eating choices.

Elvis Presley's 46-year-old daughter opened up to People magazine this week about her recent slim-down, and revealed it was her father that inspired her to lose weight.

"Knowing my family history — my father's side is totally not healthy and they have shorter life spans [her father died at 42], while my mom's side is super fit with long life spans — I didn't know where I would land," Presley, who's in Australia touring for her "Storm & Grace" album, told People. "So I said, 'OK. I'm going to play it safe and try to be as healthy as I can be.'"

Presley attributed her new body to a healthy diet.

"I'm at the weight I was at when I was a teenager. I love the way clothes fit right now," she said. "I eat half of what I am given, especially when I have carbs or grains. I just had avocado with feta cheese on toast with some spinach. Last night I had vegetable chicken curry. I watch the rice, obviously. I'll have a fistful."

Her 90-minute concerts are also a great workout, in addition to running after her 5-year-old twins, Harper and Finley, with husband Michael Lockwood.

"I can't always get off the bus and walk for 30 minutes. But the show is 90 minutes long and I'm constantly moving and my adrenaline is pumping, so I'm sure that is burning calories," she told People.

"The twins are with me on tour and are constantly on the go, so they keep me moving. I do chase after them, but it's not just that. There's always so much going on with the little ones and the older ones, too [daughter Riley, 24, and son Benjamin, 21, from her first marriage to Danny Keough]. It's a lot!"
