She Is a Vegan

Ariana has eaten organic most of her life, but opted to go vegan after watching the documentary Forks Over Knives in 2013. "I've eaten organically since I was little and always kept meat minimal but today marks my first day as a 100% Vegan!!!! Joyous day," she tweeted. "I love animals more than I love most people, not kidding," she told The Mirror. "But I am a firm believer in eating a full plant-based, whole-food diet that can expand your life length and make you an all-round happier person. It is tricky dining out, but I just stick to what I know–veggies, fruit, and salad–then, when I get home, I'll have something else."


Here Are Some of Her Least and Most Favorite Foods

Ariana is Italian, but she revealed to The Mirror that she doesn't eat the cuisine anymore due to being vegan. One of her favorite ethic foods? Japanese, per her trainer Harley Pasternak. "She loves daikon, lotus, adzuki beans—almost like a macrobiotic Japanese [diet]," he told Glamour in 2015. She also loves fruit. "I've had at least five strawberries a day since I can remember. They're my favorite food!" she revealed in one tweet. Other go-to snacks include almonds and cashews. "They make great healthy snacks to keep me energized throughout my day!" she told Shape. She also loves coconut water for hydration. "I always have a bottle next to me," she added. 


She Counts Steps

Pasternak, her trainer, is a big proponent of counting steps. And similar to his other celebrity client, Jessica Simpson, he sets a daily minimum for the singer. "I give [Ariana] a step goal every day, whether she'll be dancing to get that step goal or watching her favorite movies while walking down the treadmill really slowly," he explained to Popsugar. "Twelve-thousand steps a day and she hits it. I can't imagine her being still." 


She Ditched Junk Food

Ariana maintains that ditching junk food is primarily responsible for her svelte figure. "The reason why I lost so much weight as I did is because I used to live on junk food," she wrote in a Tumblr post (per E! Online). "So I drastically changed my eating habits, started exercising daily, and I'm all around a healthier me."


She Also Does Pilates
