So how does the star stay fit and healthy?

Dianne Buswell diet: How does Strictly Come Dancing 2019 dancer keep healthy?

In the past Dianne has spoken out about her struggles with her weight, feeling the pressure to stay slim in a dance environment. 

She has revealed that she felt an “addiction” to excerise.

Dianne told Happiful magazine: “I tried everything. Sometimes I did three shows a day and I’d go to the gym in between.

“I was exercising excessively, and cut out so many meals. If I [ended up] off that schedule, it would really throw me. It was an addiction, I guess.

“Anxiety came with it, because I didn’t feel well enough to perform, and I had to every night.”

The extreme behaviour caused Dianne to need medical care for anaemia, although happily she recovered and has a healthier relationship with food.

Dianne has revealed that healthy eating is essential to keep up her busy dancing career.

And with her hectic routine its not surprise she stays trim. She told Top Sante: “First thing on Monday we meet up to learn the professional dance, then it’s on to a train or plane – unless you’re lucky enough to have a celebrity based in London – to meet your celeb and start rehearsing.

“From Tuesday to Thursday it’s more rehearsing, but by Friday you need to have it perfected because you’re then down to the studio for fittings, rehearsals and that spray tan we all love so much!”

She told the website that she relies on healthy eating, early nights, coffee and Berocca to keep her energy levels up.

It has also been revealed that Dianne enjoys drinking fruit juice as she posted an advert with Tropicana on her Instagram.

She said: “When you feel good on the inside, it really radiates to how you feel on the outside

“So nothing can beat a morning at home with a yummy nutritional breakfast and my @Tropicanajuicesuk Whole Fruit Orange to kick start the day.”

In the image she appears to be eating egg and avocado on a slice of toast.

How does Dianne Buswell workout? 

Speaking to Xposé, she said: “People always think, ‘Oh, you do so much exercise, that must be enough’, but with dancing, I’m so used to it that actually it genuinely doesn’t do that much for me anymore.

“I condition with Pilates and yoga; they’re my two favourite things that I do, and they go hand in hand with dancing.

“In dancing, you want long, toned muscles, not short, bigger muscles, so I find that those exercises really lengthen and tone at the same time.”
