Lady Gaga Workout and Diet

Singer
Born: 1986

Lady Gaga is the professional name of Stefani Germanotta. Born in New York City, she began piano lessons at age 4 but she always preferred to play by ear rather than reading sheet music. Gaga acted in high school plays, played at open mic nights, and studied at the Lee Strasberg Theatre for 10 years. She auditioned for acting roles but, other than a small role in the The Sopranos, her attempts were unsuccessful. In 2003, Gaga was admitted to NYU’s music school called Collaborative Arts Project 21, but withdrew as a sophomore to focus on her career. Gaga was eventually hired to write songs for Sony and stars like Britney Spears and New Kids on the Block. In 2008, she moved to LA and recorded her debut album which went #1 in other countries and made top 5 in the US. She has gone on to sell 124 million records, win 11 Grammys, an Oscar, a BAFTA and 2 Golden Globes, along with various other awards and Guinness World Records. In 2011, Gaga was named the Queen of Pop by Rolling Stone magazine. She is considered a trailblazer on various issues. Gaga launched the youth empowerment charity Born This Way Foundation, and supports other charities including the Red Cross and relief for the 2010 Haiti earthquake. Gaga also supports LGBT rights. She is one of the most followed people on social media. Gaga is 5 feet 1 inch tall and weighs about 108 lbs.

Lady Gaga’s Diet

Summary

Gaga knows that there is no way she can keep up with an intense schedule by eating junk food. She fuels her long days with nutrient-dense foods, and when she’s in the mood for an indulgence, she has what might be called a ‘half-cheat,’ meaning a healthier version of the item, such as using whole wheat bread rather than white for French toast. She is an adventurous eater and likes to try exotic foods as she travels around the world. She drinks lots of tea and coconut water, and if she’s going to have juice, it’ll be fresh-pressed and made from veggies.

Lady Gaga’s Fitness Routine

Weekly Routine

Build Stamina

It takes a lot of energy to dance around for hours wearing platform stilettos. Gaga works out hard so that when it’s show time, she makes it look easy.

Mix It Up

Gaga likes to keep things interesting by changing up her routine. In addition to standard weight training, she might do yoga, Pilates, swim or go horseback riding.

Get Help

Gaga has been working with celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak for years. His list of elite client includes Rihanna, Adam Levine, Ariana Grande and Katy Perry.

Daily Dose

Whether dancing on stage, hitting the gym or going for a horseback ride, Gaga gets a workout in most days. She tries to do a 35-minute strength training routine 5 days a week.

Swim

Before going on stage, Gaga likes to hit the water and do some laps in the pool, a great way to do cardio without tiring herself out.

Ride

Like Kaley Cuoco and Mary Kate Olsen, Gaga loves to ride horses, a form of exercises that strengthens your core and legs, as well as giving a major adrenaline rush as she gallops through the canyons.

Strengthen

Gaga also does Pilates regularly with her instructor, Lisa Marie Goodwin. Pilates is a go-to for lots of dancers because it builds a strong core and flexibility. She does a lot of core work, period, including 6 sets of bicycle crunches each day.

Stretch

Like Madonna, Gaga has been practicing yoga for more almost 2 decades. She started with hot yoga back in 2004, she does Bikram now, and can do cool poses like headstands.

Lady Gaga’s Lifestyle

Chill Out

Gaga’s recovery system following a show is 5-10 minutes in an ice bath, then a 20-minute hot bath, followed by a compression suit with ice packs for another 20 minutes.

Royal Inspiration

Gaga’s name was inspired by the Queen song, ‘Radio Gaga.’

Aristocratic School Chums

Gaga attended the same private Manhattan high school as Nicky and Paris Hilton.

Cuts Both Ways

The meat dress Gaga wore to the MTV Video Music Awards to show her disapproval of the US military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy was condemned by animal rights activists. It was also determined that the dress was made of cheap cuts of meat, no filet mignon anywhere to be seen. After being preserved like jerky, the dress was archived in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011.

Donald Duck It

Gaga is famous for her outrageous outfits, but one thing you won’t see her in is pants (hot pants excepted). Yet her favorite cartoon character is Bugs Bunny. She says her partially-blind grandma can only see her on TV when she shows some skin.

Gaga on Her Life
