She Maintains a Mostly Plant-Based Diet

Porsha tries to eat as plant-based as possible. "My big news in my house is that I am a born-again vegan. Baby vegan, to be exact," she shared on the September 27 premiere of Bravo's Chat Room, revealing how she lost 10 pounds in 2020. "Baby vegan is basically a vegan that is completely plant-based, so I'm about 99.9 percent vegan. Meaning if the Lord say, 'Today you can have that cheese on that salad,' then I am not going to pick it off because that would be against what the Lord wants for me."


She Won't Do Strict Diets


"For my diet, I really am not on anything strict to be honest. I just do what makes sense. If I'm craving a hamburger, I'll have a hamburger. But then the next day I'll make sure that I have a salad, a lot of water, and a good mix of vegetables. Same goes for something like pizza, if I want it I'll have it, but then the next day I'll make sure it is filled with healthy habits," Porsha explained to Glamour about her approach to nutrition. 


She Does Intermittent Fasting

Porsha is also into intermittent fasting, "which is where you only eat between a certain set of hours then fast the rest of the day," she told Glamour. "When I do it, I'll typically limit my eating window to about six hours." 


She Does a Lot of Ab Work

Porsha, who has been training with Darrell Patterson for six years, doing boxing, strength, and weight training workouts. However, there is one type of workout she never misses. "I never skip abs. For some crazy reason I actually enjoy them. I can do a countless number, it's like I have that natural strength. But since I had a baby, that's been my main focus area," she told Glamour. 


She Keeps a Treadmill in Her Bedroom

Porsha has a trick for getting a workout in every day. "I had no choice but to put my treadmill in my bedroom," she revealed to Glamour. "So now I see it when I wake up, and I get right into doing about forty minutes on an incline at a 4.0 pace." She claims to get on the machine "at least four days a week and I get with a trainer once a week."
