Lady Gaga Diet and Exercise

How Lady Gaga Keeps Healthy and Fit

Lady Gaga looked amazing at the Emmys, and one look at her dedication to fitness and it's easy to see why. While Gaga isn't without controversy (she's admitted to occasional drug and alcohol use), she remains extremely focused when it comes to her diet and fitness regimen.

  • She keeps a consistent workout schedule: Gaga maintains the fitness regimen created for her by longtime trainer Harley Pasternak. Even while touring, she works out five times a week for at least 25 minutes each day. The secret to Lady Gaga's killer abs? Lots of crunches. Harley starts her on a basic crunch and modifies that into reverse crunches, ending with a double crunch. If you want to get abs like Gaga, check out Lady Gaga's favourite ab exercises. When you've finished the ab routine, watch this video of Harley as he takes you through Gaga's butt workout.
  • She keeps a healthy diet: Besides following Harley's fitness routine, Gaga has also subscribed to his 5 Factor Diet, which says to eat five times a day (two meals and three snacks) of foods falling into these five categories: lean protein, low-glycemic carbs, healthy fats, fibre, and a sugar-free beverage. The diet also allows for one cheat day a week. Some of Gaga's favorite foods to munch on are salsa with grain chips, tofu, turkey slices, hummus, and coconut water.
  • She believes in the healing power of yoga: A longtime yogini, Gaga even makes a habit to practice at local studios wherever her travels take her (Bikram and hot power yoga are her styles of choice). She has said, "Yoga makes me feel like I can do anything," and has called her longtime NYC-based teacher Tricia Donegan an inspiration, saying " . . . yoga heals me and so do you."
