katy perry Workout and DIET
Katy Perry is the stage name of Katheryn Hudson. Born in California to Pentecostal pastors, she spent her childhood moving around the country as her parents set up churches. Perry started singing at age 9 and, after receiving a guitar for her 13th birthday, started performing in public. She got her GED at age 15 so she could leave school and pursue a career in music. While taking music lessons at the Music Academy of the West, Perry’s talent caught the eye (or ear) of Christian folk music artist Jennifer Knapp who took Perry to Nashville to hone her skills. Her first album, a gospel, was released in 2001, but it was not a commercial success. She hit a few other bumps in the road until 2008 when she released One of the Boys which made her famous. Having sold over 140 million records worldwide and over 6 billion streams of her various albums, Perry is one of the best-selling singers of all time. Forbes listed her as one of the highest-earning women in music from 2011-’19. She holds multiple Guinness World Records, Billboard Music Awards and American Music Awards. Other endeavors include playing the voice of Smurfette in The Smurfs films, an autobiographical documentary, a line of shoes, and co-owner of the health food brand Bragg. Perry was also a judge on American Idol. She has numerous endorsements including Covergirl, Proactiv, and Pepsi. Perry supports many charitable causes including UNICEF, MusiCares, and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. With over a hundred millions followers just on Instagram, she is one of the most-followed people on social media. Perry was briefly married to actor Russel Brand. She has 1 child with actor Orlando Bloom. Perry is 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighs about 130 lbs.
Katy Perry‘s Diet
Growing up, Perry’s family struggled financially and did not always have enough to eat. Their go-tos were things like meatloaf and milk, and kale was just a garnish, although she says her mom pushed her to eat her veggies. As an adult, she takes her diet more seriously and makes an effort to eat clean, but she is the first to admit that she likes her treats. She follows the Five Factor diet which consists of 5 small meals a day. To stay hydrated, she drinks coconut water and is also a big fan of fresh-pressed juices. Perry is a supplement queen and takes more than 20 every day. She also puts apple cider vinegar (ACV) in just about everything.
- Medium Fat 30% 30%
- Medium Carb 40% 40%
- Medium Protein 30% 30%
Growing up, Perry’s family had to sometimes rely on food stamps. They also ate out of the parents’ church’s food pantry.
Five Factor Diet
The Five Factor diet was created by celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak and is designed to simplify healthy eating. Each meal is made up of no more than 5 ingredients and can be prepped in 5 minutes or less.
Say No to the Devil
When Perry was a child, she and her siblings were not allowed to eat Lucky Charms cereal because ‘luck’ referred to Lucifer, aka, the devil. Also, the family did not eat deviled eggs, but rather ‘angeled eggs.’
Say Yes to ACV
Perry’s mom made her drink apple cider vinegar (ACV) growing up, but she still loves it and uses it all the time. She and Orlando Bloom had an instant connection over both mixing it in their water bottle.
Perry loves to snack, but she still eats healthy. She is into salty things, so one of her go-tos is a quesadilla made with lean turkey, black beans and low-fat cheese. When she’s in the mood for peanut butter, her trainer will whip up a PB&J smoothie.
Ultimate Hangover Cure
Perry’s answer to a hangover is In-N-Out Burger and Sprite. Grease and sugar are her magic combo.

Katy Perry‘s Supplements
Perry is a literal spokesperson for apple cider vinegar. She puts it in her water, rinses her veggies with it, and even bathes in it. ACV is antibacterial and antimicrobial and offers multiple benefits including improved digestion, weight loss, reducing cholesterol, blood sugar and symptoms of diabetes, and even shinier hair.
Perry takes a lot of vitamins each day, 20 or more. She is a fan of the supplement brand Lyfe which offers products ranging from recovery shakes to herbals. While she has posted pics of her huge bags of vitamins, she doesn’t explain what they are. But safe bets include a multivitamin, vitamin D, a B-complex, and because she travels a lot, probiotics, turmeric, and melatonin.

Remember Where You Come From
Although Perry does not subscribe to any organized religion, she got a Jesus tattoo when she was 18 to remind herself of what is important in her life. She says that while she doesn’t believe in heaven or hell, she does think there is a higher power.
The Queen of Camp

Perry on confidence
If you’re presenting yourself with confidence, you can pull of pretty much anything.
