So Lady Gaga went on a Sirius radio show the other morning, and let her staying-fit secret out of the Birkin bag…

She said: “I’m on the drunk diet. I like to drink whiskey and stuff while I’m working. But the deal is, I’ve got to work out every day, and I work out hung over if I’m hung over.”

So, you know. It’s Lady Gaga, so we’re not going expect the most traditional of staying-healthy secrets from her. Also, her boyfriend, Luc Carl, “just signed up to write The Drunk Diet, about how he lost 40 pounds while still ‘being a hard-drinking party maker,'” so there could be a convenient tie-in there.

Alcohol packs about 7 calories per gram, which add up quickly (especially since there are no nutrients in there). But the idea of alcohol-focused diets aren’t new; “The Drinking Man’s Diet” promotes regular drinking (of lower-carb liquors) on top of carb-less eating.

And working out while hungover? Providing you keep hydrated (maybe with something like Gatorade–which has high levels of electrolytes to help you rehydrate), a gentle workout can help ease hangover symptoms–if you have the stomach for it.

Have you ever worked out after having one cocktail too many the night before? Has the exercise helped or hurt?
