Lisa Rinna’s Diet

Diet Summary

Rinna eats a mostly plant-based diet. She does not totally exclude meat but eats it sparingly. She calls herself a ‘dirty vegan’ because she does not adhere strictly to the principles of veganism which means avoiding all animal products, including meat, dairy and eggs. She went gluten-free in 2010 and generally makes a point to avoid processed foods, and sticks to whole, natural ones. She did Oprah’s 21-day cleanse on Real Housewives which cuts out caffeine, sugar, gluten, meat, dairy and alcohol. She said it was painful.

Lisa Rinna’s Fitness Routine

Weekly Workout Routine

Old Pro

Rinna began playing tennis competitively when she was young. She says she has tried every type of exercise out there, and exercise has always been a part of her day.

Fountain of Youth

Daily Dose

Rinna says she works out at least 6 days per week, and rarely misses.

Spin For the Win

Rinna regularly takes spinning classes at SoulCycle. She says the high intensity combines well to balance out low-key yoga.

Get Outdoors
