Katy Perry in Workout Gear Says "Pickleball is Better Than Padel"

"Try to change my mind in the comments."

Katy Perry is getting competitive in her tennis dress. In a new social media post the singer plays a mean game of racquets against her American Idol co-judges Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie. "Pickleball is better than padel, try to change my mind in the comments," she commented in one of the posts. In another, she poses in her pickleball outfit on a trading card. How does the singer approach health and wellness? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 


60/40 Rule

While most stars follow the 80/20 plan, Katy has a more lenient approach to diet. "Let's be honest," she told Prevention, "it's 60/40." According to PopSugar, she eats soups, grilled chicken, quinoa, asparagus, fresh-pressed juices, and coconut water. "I've had a lot of opportunity in my life and I know how fortunate I am, but when I don't have my health, nothing else matters," she added to Prevention. "If I can't get on the stage and do it, I disappoint so many people. I've lost my magical power if I can't get onstage." 


Apple Cider Vinegar


Katy loves apple cider vinegar. "My mother made me drink it every day, but now it's a staple for me," she told Prevention, revealing that her mom has known the founder of Bragg, the ACV company that Katy and partner Orlando Bloom, are co-owners of, for decades. "I'm here to help reeducate people on how to use it," she said. She not only drinks it, adding two tablespoons into eight ounces of water, she rinses veggies in it, and even bathes in it, adding one cup to her bath.

Katy works out with Harley Pasternak five days per week doing mostly high intensity interval training. "Katy aims to exercise five days a week, doing short, high-intensity workouts—including lunges and hip thrusts," he told Closer magazine. "These tone, as well as boost her metabolism, and can be done anywhere."



"I have had a dance with depression, and hot yoga helps clear it all out," Katy revealed to Prevention about her zen medication. One of her favorites is CorePower Yoga, which she can do wherever she is. "You always know what you're going to get," she says. "If you have a healthy body, it helps you have a healthy mind." 



Katy is a fan of Transcendental Medication. "It clears my head completely," she told Prevention. "And it ignites something in my brain. I get some of my best creative ideas when I'm TM'ing." She does it daily, and brings her teacher on tour with her. "For me, TM has been anxiety-reducing, depression-reducing, great for jet lag, hangovers, mood swings. Anytime I'm in a funky mood, I'm like, 'give me 20 minutes.'"



Should you play pickleball like Katy? According to the Cleveland Clinic, the racquet sport helps improve heart health, enhances muscle and bone strength, increases balance and coordination, boosts brain health, and lengthens lifespan.
