For the Lady Gaga nutrition on Sky Living’s ‘Bigger Than Gaga’ programme the nutrition plan I devised for the girls is a combination of a number of nutrition/diet methods that Gaga herself likes to use. Before a gig she likes to do the 5 Factor diet plan which comprises of the eating foods that fall into the following factors:
- Low fat, quality protein
- Low GI foods
- Good sources of fibre
- Contains healthy fats
- Sugar free beverages
Whereas in her day to day life she sometimes follows the 7 colour diet plan to ensure she gets a varied diet.
All the girls taking part in the programme lived busy hectic lives and so it was important that I designed a nutrition plan that they had time to prep and to stick with. The menu below for example uses pre cooked fish that you simply add salad to, but yet offers maximum nutrition and would give Gaga a huge energy boost before a show.
Peppered Smoked Mackerel Salad
150g Peppered smoked mackerel fillet (precooked)
1/2 chopped mango
1 inch cucumber chopped
3 walnuts chopped
1/2 juice of fresh lime
100g spinach chopped
Place the fish on the bed of spinach, sprinkle over the cucumber, cranberries, mango and chopped walnuts then squeeze the lime juice over the meal and serve.
