  • There is no strict diet for Rihana, other than the rules mentioned above. She loves to have BBQ flavoured pop chips on her cheat day. The normal day diet consists of egg whites, fish, lemon, potato, salad and protein bars. Her personal chef Debbie Solomon mentioned that Rihana never likes to eat from a scheduled item list. She is a “moody eater” and loves to have eggs for breakfast. It can be boiled eggs with sliced toast with the crust. Berries and mango, pineapple or papaya can be added. On lighter breakfast days she consumes egg whites, pineapple with hot water and lemon.
  • While travelling, Rihana loves to have curried chicken. Rice, pasta and vegetables are favourites of Rihana. She also loves the Caribbean flavoured spices like cumin seeds, curry, bouillon and garlic.

Motivation is a great thing for Rihana and she stays motivated throughout her workout sessions as well as diet. Eating food and training hard is the motto of her life.
