Kara DioGuardi, originally named Kara Elizabeth DioGuardi, is an American singer, songwriter, composer, record producer, and TV personality. She was born on December 9, 1970 in Ossining, New York. The daughter of US Senate candidate Joseph J. DioGuardi, she grew up in the Wilmot Woods section of suburban New Rochelle, New York. Growing up with a huge interest in music, she enrolled in an opera program in her school. While she was studying college, she shifted course and focused on pre-law, aiming to become a future lawyer. After graduation, she realized that she could not let go of music. As her friend encouraged her to work for the Billboard magazine, she took the opportunity and eventually gained an insider’s perspective on the music industry. During her spare time, she delved more in singing and performing. She had her breakthrough in 2000 when her hit song “Spinning Around” sang by Kylie Minogue hit the music chart.
When it comes to keeping her body in tip-top shape, Kara shared that she regularly hits the gym and particularly spends time working out at least three times a week. “Staying at the gym 3 times a week and just staying on top of it is key…It’s got to be a lifestyle,” she shared in one of her interviews.
And what about her diet? Well, it seems like she’s one of the celebrities who don’t fret much when it comes to diet. “Going on diets is not really my thing,” said Kara. “I am an eater – an Italian who doesn’t eat is an outcast – but I do it in moderation. I make a special dish of vegetables and sausage with garlic oil. If I want to get crazy, I make rice – lasagna too.”
