She Eats Healthy…Most of the Time
Dua's approach to healthy is moderate. "I try and stay as healthy as possible whenever I can," she dished to Urban List."I'm never one to stop myself having treats, I do love naughty treats. But I try and limit it to days when I'm not as busy, because if I do eat a doughnut it usually puts me in a food coma!"
One way Dua eats healthy is by preparing her own food. "I love cooking and being surrounded by my favorite people, though I also love ordering from the fantastic restaurants in my area," Dua explained in an essay for Refinery29 during the pandemic. "With all the running around I do for work, it's nice to come home, slow down, and connect with the food that nourishes my body and life."
She Indulges in Spirits
While Dua is healthy most of the time, she isn't one to turn down a drink on occasion. In fact, she partnered up with Truly hard seltzer. "Watermelonlemonadeeeeeeee," she captioned this Instagram image.
Dancing is obviously one of Dua's favorite calorie blasting activities. The star likely burns thousands of calories per day while on tour. Dance "is an aerobic activity that can count toward the amount of aerobic activity recommended for most healthy adults by the Department of Health and Human Services," says the Mayo Clinic. "The guidelines recommend at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity a week, or a combination of moderate and vigorous activity. But even small amounts of physical activity are helpful. Being active for short periods of time throughout the day can add up to provide health benefits."
She Works Out with Her Friends
Dua likes to make exercise a group activity. "My friends and I will wake up and set [up] a FaceTime date and do a workout together," she told Vogue. "It almost feels as though we're all doing it in the same place. That brings a little bit of normality and in some way makes things easier for sure."
Her Workouts Are Short But Intense
Dua prefers short but intense bursts of exercise, telling Vogue that she does 15-minute intervals of mountain climbers, jumping jacks, and burpees. "It's high-intensity interval training, but it's so quick, it's over before it's even started!" she said. "I'm still trying to see what my boundaries are and how far I can push myself and when I need to rest."
She Even Works Out on Tour
Dua doesn't even skip her workouts while on tour "When you're on a tour bus, every day and every place is different, so you never know what you're going to find. That's always one way to keep it interesting," she told Marie Claire about how she gets creative when she is on the road.
"I love boxing in my spare time. I like doing it for fitness [and] I like doing it just to kinda clear my mind. I really enjoy it. I like that it's definitely a full body workout. Since starting boxing I've probably been in the best shape ever. It's also a great stress reliever," Dua revealed to BeautyCrew.com.
She Does Lots of Crunches
If you want abs like Dua, plan on doing lots of ab work. "I think different variations of crunches like bicycle crunches are good. Leg raises are also great unless my back hurts. Planks are good although almost certainly my least favorite!" she said.
