Cardi B’s Diet

Diet Summary

Growing up, Cardi B says she often went hungry and was skinny. While she is an avowed fast food addict, she did a 180 when she got pregnant and even tried vegan food in an effort to be healthy. She sticks to only eating 2 meals per day, breakfast and dinner. This can be a form of intermittent fasting which helps the body in many ways, including weight loss, regulating blood sugar levels, reducing inflammation and cell repair. Her foods run the gamut from hearty eggs, bacon and potatoes to pizza to barbecue to wings. But she’ll still return to vegan selections from time to time. She also drinks weight loss tea twice a week to help curb her appetite. Just 3 months after giving birth, she had dropped all the baby weight and then some. She says the tea worked a little too well, and led to depression over her too-skinny body.

Cardi B’s Lifestyle

What The ‘B’ Stands For

B says her sister’s name is Hennessy, and so people called her ‘Bacardi.’ She reversed the syllables because Instagram kept shutting her down for using a copyrighted name. She says these days, the ‘B’ may mean different things. (By the way, her sister is also a social media star.)

Political Passion

Cardi B calls herself a ‘history guru’ and says she’s been obsessed with politics every since high school when her career goal was to teach history. She even posted her grades on Twitter (98 on the US History Regents exam and 93 on the Global Regents). She’s also a big fan of Bernie Sanders.

Baby Bling

Cardi B and hubs Offset spent $100K for custom diamond jewelry to celebrate baby Kulture’s 1st birthday. Miss B announced on Instagram she plans to spoil her children with everything money can buy (her own engagment ring cost a cool $550K).

Record Breaker

Cardi B is only the 2nd female rapper ever to have a solo song hit #1 on the music charts. Lauryn Hill was the first to do it back in 1998.

Rule Breaker

Cardi B threw a shoe at Nicki Minaj during Fashion Week in 2018. She also unapologetically admits to drugging and robbing men who would come back to her hotel room when she was working as a stripper. In 2019, she got a felony conviction for encouraging her bodyguards to attack bartenders at a strip joint.
