With the demands of performing on her Monster Ball tour, recording a new album and being one of her generation's top pop stars Lady Gaga has a lot on her plate – but she stays healthy by watching what she puts on her plate.

Since fainting during a concert in New Zealand earlier this year, Gaga has become a stickler for maintaining a healthy routine, according to her choreographer LaurieAnn Gibson.

"It's all about salsa with grain chips, tofu, turkey slices, hummus and coconut water," says the choreographer, who is nominated for two MTV VMAs for Gaga's "Bad Romance" and "Telephone" videos.





But a girl can't put on a show on hummus alone.

"We'll have a toast or two with a little white wine!" says Gibson, who will premiere a Ryan Seacrest-produced reality show on E! in November, of Gaga's pre-show ritual.

So just who is the real Gaga? Gibson, who choreographed the singer's videos for "Poker Face," "Love Game," "Paparazzi," "Bad Romance," "Telephone" and "Alejandro," says Gaga is a soulful theater buff who has "become a lot more comfortable with herself."

Gibson describes the pop star as "fearless," and says her new music, which Gaga has been recording while on tour, reflects that fearlessness. "She's going to take a bigger bite out of things," says Gibson. "You're going to see more of who she really is."
