A Place in the Sun's Amanda Lamb Shares Swimsuit Photo From Crete
Amanda Lamb is a TV host, best known for her work on A Place In The Sun. She and her family recently enjoyed a trip to Crete, Greece. Lamb shared some highlights on Instagram this week. In them, she enjoyed a day on the water. Lamb captioned the post, "Memories made, fears exercised." How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Amanda Lamb stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.
She Faces Her Fears
In her recent Instagram post, Lamb talked about overcoming some of her fears. She began the caption with, "Faced a few fears today… took a boat out on my own with the girls. Might not seem much but it was a big thing for me. Pootled round the bay, got up close to Spinalonga (which we're visiting tomorrow) jumped off into water so deep we couldn't see the bottom and handed over the reins/wheel thingy to the teen who amazed me with how good she was."
Lamb likes to swim to stay in shape. She shared this set of photos and videos on Instagram of herself having a pool day. Lamb captioned the post, "Continuing my love of dunking myself in various bodies of water. The pool at @casalasiesta has to be seen to be believed. Quiet, tranquil and mesmerising. I've barely been out of it. Highlight was early morning pre breakfast swim with coffee and book in hand and watching the swifts dive in for a drink.. swipe right to see.. they're fast little buggers though, blink and you'll miss him… will give you a tour soon once I've dragged myself back to reality…"
Swimming isn't the only outdoor activity Lamb likes to do to stay in shape. She's also a fan of hiking, and shares several hiking highlights on Instagram. In this set of photos, Lamb hikes Blackchurch Rock. She captioned the post, "Finally got down here. I've lived down here for 8 years and never managed to get to Blackchurch Rock. Go if you get the chance, it's incredible and make sure you go at low tide so you can climb through and look like an awkward tourist."
She Lives A Healthier Lifestyle
In an interview with Closer, Lamb talked about how she lost weight and adapted to a healthier lifestyle. "I put on weight while filming A Place In The Sun in Europe. We'd go out boozing, and I was eating baguettes for lunch, followed by stodgy dinners…Since then, my weight has slowly returned to normal. I eat healthily and go to the gym four times a week. One day I'm going to write a book about how to [lose weight]. It will be called Eat Less; Move More. It's not rocket science."
She Gets Her Vitamin D
Vitamin D from the sun is vital as it helps regulate calcium and phosphorus absorption, promoting healthy bone growth and maintenance. Sunlight triggers a skin reaction that generates vitamin D, aiding immune function, cell growth, and reducing inflammation. Insufficient sun exposure can lead to deficiencies, linked to bone disorders like rickets in children and osteoporosis in adults. However, moderation is key due to sunburn and skin cancer risks. Balancing sun exposure, dietary sources, and supplements ensures adequate vitamin D levels for overall health.
