So it turns out that nutritionist who estimated that Lady Gaga had gained 30 pounds wasn’t far off after all, either that or she just heard it so many times she decided to agree but subtract five pounds because no one’s allowed to be that right.
“I’m dieting right now, because I gained, like, 25 pounds,” Gaga told Z100’s Elvis Duran. “And you know I really don’t feel bad about it, not even for a second. I have to be on such a strict diet constantly. It’s hard because it’s a quite vigorous show, so I tend to bulk up, get muscular, and I really don’t like that. So I’m trying to find a new balance.”
A balance between Superfood and meatballs that is. The culprit behind the weight gain is her dad’s restaurant, Joanne Trattoria, in Manhattan.
“I love eating pasta and pizza. I’m a New York Italian girl. That’s why I have been staying out of New York. My father opened a restaurant. It’s so amazing … it’s so freaking delicious, but I’m telling you I gain five pounds every time I go in there.”
“So my dad wants me to eat at the restaurant, and I’m, like, I’ve got to go where I can drink green juice.”
