by Keeli Parkey

Like most celebrities, Reba McEntire is very health conscious. And, unsurprisingly, she takes steps to ensure that she is doing what she can to be as healthy and as fit as possible. Part of that routine is staying away from one ingredient in particular.

The country music superstar talked about her health regimen during a 2015 interview with WebMD. First, the “Fancy” singer was asked what she does to stay in shape. Turns out, her routine is fairly straightforward. And, she starts that daily routine as soon as she gets out of bed in the morning.

“I do my little routine of stretching, sit-ups, push-ups, and planks every morning,” Reba McEntire said.

This isn’t the only physical activity “The Night the Lights Went Out In Georgia Singer” does to stay fit. And, like most of us, she does have a favorite exercise to do.

“When the weather gets warmer I’ll be outside walking, my favorite type of exercise,” McEntire also said.

In addition to exercise, a healthy diet is key to staying fit enough for the life of a country music superstar. So, it’s no surprise that Reba McEntire also watches what she eats. Here is where avoiding a specific ingredient comes into play.

“And I try to stay away from sugar,” McEntire said of a key part of her health routine. This isn’t her only dietary plan of action.

“I eat fruits and vegetables. I love salmon for my omega-3s. … take supplements,” the singer also said. She also enjoys healthy drinks. “I try to drink coconut water, which I love, and aloe vera juice,” she also shared.

Reba McEntire and Boyfriend Rex Linn

While she does what she can to stay fit and healthy, Reba McEntire recently endured a health scare.

During a live stream on the social media platform TikTok, the 66-year-old star revealed that she had contracted COVID-19. Her boyfriend, Rex Linn, also contracted the dreaded illness. Fortunately, both of them survived and bounced back from the disease.

And, unsurprisingly, going through the health scare was not a pleasant experience for McEntire and Linn.

“This has been a very hard year and it’s getting rougher again. You guys, please stay safe. Wear your masks. Do what you have to do. Stay home. Just stay safe. Stay healthy,” Reba McEntire said. “It’s not fun to get this. I did get it. Rex (Linn) and I got it and it’s not fun. You don’t feel good. We were both vaccinated and we still got it, so stay safe, stay home, and be protected the best you can.”

The rise in COVID-19 cases has also led McEntire and her family to postpone a memorial service for her mother, Jacqueline.

“With heavy hearts, we are postponing Mama’s memorial … We feel that it’s not a good idea to continue with the plans due to the increase of Covid cases in Atoka County,” Reba McEntire recently said.
