Rihanna is in no way shy about her body and showing it off; sheer outfits are some of her favorite choices for red carpet events. She embraces her curves and works hard to keep her body toned and tightened. So what exactly is on Rihanna’s diet plan and what are some of Rihanna’s favorite foods? You may be surprised to discover that she eats what she wants, and even indulges when she feels like it.
How can she do that? The gym. Rihanna hits the gym almost every day because she doesn’t want to restrict her food choices; in particular, she seems to love pasta. She’s been known to order three types of pasta dishes at a time and finish them all (they’re half-dishes, though). Regularly working out for an hour almost every day allows her this indulgence.
What are Rihanna’s favorite drinks? She apparently loves a good Jameson and ginger cocktail. Her favorite desserts are allegedly chocolate ice cream and cheesecake. Rihanna’s diet plan, while healthy overall, does account for her calorie-filled food choices and love of junk food.
