So how does Rihanna stay slim and tone?
It’s no secret. She shares celebrity trainers with Lady Gaga. Personal trainer Harley Pasternak keeps Rihanna on a strict diet and exercise plan. Her main plan has her working out and eating 5 small meals a day.
Rihanna’s Battleship Workout
When she isn’t touring or busy shooting films, Rihanna does cardio like crazy. No less than 5 days of cardio workout. The treadmill is her best friend and gives her a great way to workout in private. When Rihanna is on tour she tends to workout a little less, since she gets plenty of cardio fitness with her dance routines on stage. During her busy times she slides back to about 25 minutes of exercise, 3 days a week. This way she isn’t overdoing it.
As well as the treadmill, some of Rihanna’s other fitness moves include cycling, jumping jacks, jogging and jump roping.

Cardio workouts are great for heart health, and working up a sweat is a great way to dispel impurities from your skin.
Rihanna’s Diet Plan
Although it’s rumored that Rihanna sticks with low carb foods, meaning she passes on the white bread and white pasta, with her dedication fitness routine it is important that she gets enough energy foods. Her carbs come from healthier food options, like fruits and vegetables. She eats whole grains and lean meats. Rihanna would be likely to have some oatmeal with berries and some low-fat yogurt for breakfast. Salads for lunch and roasted chicken with steamed vegetables for dinner. Rihanna doesn’t eat red meat, and gets the iron she needs from other food options, like spinach.
