Melbourne: Lady Gaga has discovered a weight loss tip that Keith Richards has known and probably practised for years – getting drunk.

"I`m on the drunk diet,” a website quoted Gaga as saying in an interview on the Sirius Morning Mash Up radio show in New York.

"I like to drink whiskey and stuff while I`m working," she added.

"But the deal is, I`ve got to work out every day, and I work out hung over if I’m hung over. And it`s about the cross-training and keeping yourself inspired. I have to say, I do a ton of yoga," Gaga said.

Gaga`s beau Luc Carl, a Manhattan bar manager, recently signed a deal to pen a tome titled The Drunk Diet, touting how he lost 40 pounds "without giving up his principles of being a hard-drinking party maker," according to the book`s website.
