Shania Twain’s pre-performance diet has been revealed as the star opens up about her favorite foods and go-to meals on the road.  The country star is preparing to go on tour for seven months and ahead of this tour, the singer has revealed how she prepares for such an intense amount of work.

Twain admitted she swears by a liquid diet at times. “It’s a vocal thing and an energy thing and a digestive thing,” began Shania in the interview. “When you’re using your diaphragm a lot, you end up getting really burp-y and bloat-y if you’re trying to manage your air after having solids.”

The singer explained that she tries to avoid solids but ensures that she gets all the nutrients and calories she needs from protein shakes. “I love the shakes because if I know I’m not going to have a chance to have a nice meal, because we’re in the middle of moving around and packing up bags and all that sort of stuff, I just grab a protein drink,” she said. “If I wake up earlier than usual on a show day, then I’ll treat myself to something with my tea,” she said.
