She Eats Protein
In a tweet, Doja told her followers some of her go-to healthy foods. The rapper makes sure to eat a lot of protein and veggies. She wrote, "I eat two eggs and spinach tortilla w caramelized onions pepper jack cheese and hot sauce and roll it up. I also eat a lot of seaweed." "Largely because of their satiating power, eggs have been linked with fat loss. An International Journal of Obesity study on this produced some remarkable results: Over an eight-week period, people ate a breakfast of either two eggs or a bagel, which contained the same amount of calories. The egg group lost 65% more body weight, 16% more body fat, experienced a 61% greater reduction in BMI, and saw a 34% greater reduction in waist circumference!" says our sister site Eat This, Not That!
She's A Dancer
One look at Doja's live performances and videos and you'll know that she's an impressive dancer. And she's been dancing since she was young. "I was taking ballet, tap and jazz," she said to Dazed. "After moving from Oak Park around the age of eleven-and-a-half, I started to take up break dancing. I danced in a crew and competed around Los Angeles in organized underground cypher/battles."
She Keeps Her Hair Short
Doja tells Byrdie that she prefers to keep her hair short, since she thinks it's easier to take care of. "I don't like to have 50 inches of hair, to be honest with you. I don't know how to sleep with it…you have to roll it up and put it away and I don't feel like doing that. So really short, above the neck hair—it's really easy to maintain."
She Has Had Struggles With Body Dysmorphia
"Growing up, I definitely had body dysmorphia. Without a doubt. And I've had it since," Doja told ME Cosmo in their Winter Issue cover story. "It started in my teens, which I think is where it starts for a lot of people. I started really growing and I never really thought I looked good in a lot of the stuff I wore." She added: "I feel like that song [Juicy] was therapeutic for me. I kind of made it for myself – well, the meaning behind it, at least. I was kind of doing it for my own happiness and I feel like other people can definitely pull some joy from that, too. Now, I just try to focus on eating well, but I definitely still struggle with body dysmorphia a bit now. But I think that's to be completely expected when there's all these phones in your face, right?"
She Just Wants to Make Music
"I mean [I want to] make music like willy nilly, like just have fun and just jam and make some," stuff," she said on a recent Instagram Live. "I haven't done that in maybe five years, feels like," she said. "I'm doing all this" stuff "that I don't…wanna do. I don't wanna take…pictures. Like, yes…planning a photoshoot is very fun. Capturing a concept, capturing a visual idea, like something like that, I love fashion, I do. I really do. I love to dress up, I love all that" stuff. "Do I wanna do that" stuff "because I have to? No! No, I don't. But I feel pressured to do" stuff "like that. "I don't…wanna do that. I wanna be home. … I wanna make music, I wanna play…video games."
