She Doesn't Eat Animal Products

In 2013 Ariana saw the documentary Forks Over Knives and decided to go vegan. "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 explained to 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."


She Eats These Foods


Ariana is Italian, but doesn't eat the food because she is vegan, she explained to The Mirror. Per her trainer Harley Pasternak she is a huge fan of Japanese. "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 Tracks Activity

Step counting is also a part of her health plan, per Pasternak. "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 Stays Away From Junk Food

Ariana attributed her weight loss to ditching junk food. "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 Does Pilates
