All eyes are on BLACKPINK these days, especially after they killed it at their first full-length public concert in the US: Coachella 2019. The quartet has been spending a lot of time in California, where they kicked off their North American tour. The girls have been working nonstop because of their comeback EP, Kill This Love, which includes adjusting their eating habits and fitness routines.
In an interview with Cosmopolitan Korea, BLACKPINK got real about what it takes to stay in shape. Jennie has been the most dedicated when it comes to her health—even when they're on break, she works out and watches what she eats. And when they're getting ready for promotions, she becomes stricter with diet: "Even when they're eating something delicious, I just eat porridge since I'm on a no-salt diet because I tend to swell when I eat a lot of salty food." To help her stay on track, she follows a pantern, which includes eating an avocado salad every day coupled with a glass of detox juice.
Her go-to workout is fly yoga, but she's also been experimenting with pilates. Rose is also a big fan of pilates; she does it once every two days. You can see her exercising with her personal trainer at the 6:00 mark in this video:
Every BLINK knows that Rose *loves* to eat (there are a lot of eating compilations on YouTube, lol), but this girl is also a fan of vegetables: "I like are vegetables such as bell pepper and carrots. As for snacks, I eat more fruits than things such as chips."
Lisa, the group's maknae and dancing machine, doesn't like working out. We don't think she really needs to, since she dances every chance she gets:
Though she doesn't follow a strict diet, Lisa drinks detox juice every day, just like her unnie, Jennie.
Jisoo, on the other hand, reveals that she gains weight easily. But after spending more time with the other members, she's noticed a difference. Like Lisa, Jisoo doesn't really go to the gym and only relies on their dance practices for exercise.
And we understand why: We're already out of breath just watching these dance practice videos:
Extreme dieting is a norm in South Korea, especially in the entertainment industry. It's important to note that each of us have different eating habits and routines. What works for the members of BLACKPINK might not be advisable for others.
