Rita Ora Shares Swimsuit Photo "Playing it All Back"

Here’s how she stays in shape.

Rita Ora is now an iconic singer and TV host and personality. She's appeared on shows like The Masked Singer UK and America's Next Top Model. And she's often seen on the side of her hubby, director Taika Waititi. Ora recently shared a new set of photos on Instagram. In the first photo, she sat on a rock by a river, while wearing a black swimsuit. Ora captioned the post, "Playing it all back." How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Rita Ora stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Doesn't Expect Immediate Results


Ora opened up about her diet and workout secrets in an interview with Shape. She says that she has learned to not expect results right away. "What I've learned is that you can take your time with training. You don't have to beat yourself up as long as you get in the workouts that you need. I used to push myself until I felt sick. But I'm approaching it differently now. I enjoy working out. And I like the aftermath-that feeling of contentment."


She Circuit Trains

Ora shared her favorite workouts in her Shape interview. "I do circuit training," she says. "I usually work out for one or two hours, depending on how much time I have. I do three circuits and repeat that three times. I mostly focus on my thighs and my bum, so I do a lot of squats and weight lifting. And I do one circuit of cardio."


She's Not Obsessed With Being Thin

Ora opened up about her body image to Shape. She says that when she works out, she's not aiming to lose weight. "I'm not going to lie and say I was completely happy with my body before. I knew I could change a few things to improve my stamina, especially onstage. I didn't start working out to get skinnier-I started working out to feel better. And I think it's important for women to know that. Don't be obsessed with being thin. You just have to be fit, healthy, and strong."


She Eats Half Portion

While Ora wants to eat healthy, she also still likes to indulge in her favorite foods. She tells Cosmopolitan that when she indulges, she watches her portions.  "I watch what I eat but I just cut my portions in half," Ora explains. "So if I want a burger I'll just cut it in half and eat half of it. That or I'll take the bread off and only eat the burger. Or if I want fries then I won't have a burger to go with them."


She Eats Healthy

Ora shared some of her favorite healthy foods in her Cosmopolitan interview. "I travel a lot so it's hard to have a regime. I have smoothies in the morning. I also have eggs – I'm a pro at breakfast. For lunch I'll have some salmon and chicken and for dinner I love truffle! I'll have broccoli pasta, truffle pasta or pizza."
