Dupri starts off her day with a drink made of lemon, apple cider vinegar, lemons, stevia, and sea salt, saying it’s beneficial for her gut health. “Some people find drinking a glass of lemon water, particularly first thing in the morning, aids digestive regularity,” says registered nutritionist Jo Lewin. “Although this is mainly subjective and reports are anecdotal, studies on mice do show some promise. A 2019 study suggested that life-long consumption of a drink rich in lemon polyphenols appeared to delay the age-related changes seen in the gut, including changes in the balance of beneficial gut bacteria.”

Weight lifting (and resistance training) is a big part of Dupri’s training regimen. “Want to reduce body fat, increase lean muscle mass and burn calories more efficiently? Strength training to the rescue! Strength training is a key component of overall health and fitness for everyone,” says the Mayo Clinic. “Research shows that a single set of 12 to 15 repetitions with the proper weight can build muscle efficiently in most people and can be as effective as three sets of the same exercise. As long as you take the muscle you are working to fatigue — meaning you can’t lift another repetition — you are doing the work necessary to make the muscle stronger.”

Dupri’s drink of choice is a delicious iced coffee, something which can help with her workouts. “For exercisers, coffee has been of interest as a performance enhancer,” says Melissa Wdowik, PhD, RDN. “Some research shows drinking a cup of coffee 30 minutes before exercise increases endurance and performance. The downside is the stimulant and dehydrating effects in those who do not regularly consume coffee, so test it during training.”

Dupri likes to use a treadmill set on an incline for cardio. “There is no question that if you are not exercising and if you make the decision to start — whether it’s walking, jogging, cycling, or an elliptical machine — you are going to be better off,” says cardiologist Dr. Aaron Baggish, the associate director of the Cardiovascular Performance Program at Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital.

Dupri loves to make pasta dishes using chickpea spaghetti. “Chickpeas are high in choline, and vitamins A, E, and C. “That’s why they reap a ton of health benefits,” says Patricia Bridget Lane, RDN, LDN. “These little tiny peas are just packed with nutrition… Chickpeas are also an excellent source of non-animal protein. They’re great for vegetarians and vegans.”
