He periodically cuts out carbs.
While Rodriguez's personal chef revealed to Us Weekly that the star has a penchant for tacos and other carb-heavy foods, when he needs to slim down, A-Rod frequently does so by ditching all carbs.
In 2019, Rodriguez took on a 10-day carb-free challenge with then fiancée Jennifer Lopez. After completing the rigorous diet, A-Rod indulged, treating himself to pizza, wings, French fries, cookies, and cake. "Top this," he jokingly challenged fans.
He sticks to the occasional fast.
When he has a big event to prepare for, A-Rod has admitted in the past that he'll fast and increase his workouts.
To shed six-and-a-half pounds prior to the Met Gala in 2019, Rodriguez underwent an intense diet and exercise routine. "I'm taking two yoga classes, and I'm running the stairs for an hour, and I haven't eaten in 24 hours. I did Sunday night baseball, I couldn't even complete a sentence I was so hungry," he revealed, noting that he'd gone down from a size 48 to size 44 in a short period of time.
