She Makes Protein a Priority
Rihanna makes sure to get her fix of protein first thing in the morning. The star's personal chef, Debbie Solomon, told The Doctors that one of her favorite breakfast meals is four boiled eggs, a piece of toast (with no crusts) and a bowl of mixed fruit for breakfast.
She Embraces Her Curves
Rihanna told British Vogue in 2018 that she loved being "thicc" and was okay being bigger all around. "You want to have a" backside, "then you have a gut," she said. "I'm about to get back into the gym and stuff, and I hope I don't lose my" backside "or my hips or all of my thighs. I'll lose some but not all. And I think of my," front, "like, 'Imma lose everything, everything goes!'"
She Brushes Off Body Shamers
Rihanna doesn't let body shamers get the best of her "You've just got to laugh at yourself, honestly. I mean, I know when I'm having a fat day and when I've lost weight. I accept all of the bodies," she told Vogue. "I'm not built like a Victoria's Secret girl, and I still feel very beautiful and confident in my lingerie."
She Gets Help From Personal Trainers
Rihanna works with two personal trainers, Ary Nuñez and Harley Pasternak, to help her stay in shape. RiRi is one of Pasternak's many celebrity clients who follow his 5 factor plan. "It's a workout made up of five phases, which starts off with a cardio warm-up for at least five minutes," he told Fashion. "Rihanna loves to ride on a stationary bike, whereas some people will jog, walk, run stairs. Phase two is an upper-body resistance exercise, such as a back row or a shoulder raise. Phase 3 is a lower body exercise, like a skater lunge or a hamstring curl. Phase 4 is an abdominal movement like a side bend or a trunk twist. Phase 5 is a cardio cool-down for at least five minutes. So she'll do a continuous circuit, and each day of the week we do different body parts."
She Follows Her Cravings
Solomon describes Rihanna as a "moody" eater. "[With previous clients] I would send in a menu on a Sunday or Monday and they would pick for the week, and then I'd be able to shop and prep, but this is nothing like that. We don't know what we're gonna want to eat tomorrow, so why even pick today?" she told Bon Appetit.
Rihanna drinks a lot of water, at least eight glasses of water a day, she revealed to Harper's Bazaar.
She Works Out So She Can Eat What She Wants
Rihanna has one major motivation when it comes to working out: food. "I have been in the gym every day this week because I am not willing to give up my food," she told Vanity Fair in 2015. "But I will sacrifice an hour for the gym."
