Alaya is a yogi. She practices with trainer Puja Thea Amin. "Always growing and learning with @pujiwoo 😄 every time I'm feeling unmotivated in class, the best way to get me focused is to make me try something I've never done before! I loooooooooove competing with myself and seeing how much further I can push my body because it always leaves me surprised and grateful!" she captioned a post of their workout.

Morning Hydration

In an interview with Femina she revealed that she starts her day by hydrating. "The first healthy thing I do when I wake up is probably all the many different things that I drink in the morning. I start with chugging water the second I wake up, then I have apple cider vinegar in water. Then I have a black coffee, then if there's any seasonal juice, I have that. And then I always have coconut water as well," she says in the clip. "So it's just a lot of hydration in the morning and I always have to start my day with that." She also loves black coffee and green tea.

Boxing and Kickboxing

Alaya also trains with celebrity MMA coach Bikash Barua for kickboxing sessions. Boxing is a great workout, "because it constantly requires you to think, change your position, and change your posture," physical therapist Linda Arslanian, director of rehabilitation services at Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women's Hospital tells Harvard Health."You're swinging your arms, moving the muscles of your arms and shoulders, increasing your upper-body strength. And when you're in the boxer crouch with a wide stance, with your knees slightly bent, you're strengthening your core muscles, back, and legs."

Here Is What She Eats in a Day

Alaya detailed her diet to Femina. She revealed that she eats the same breakfast for about two months. "I eat the same thing every single day. So currently for the last two months, I've been eating a bowl of oatmeal and some mangoes, and then I just usually tend to mix the mangoes in the oatmeal, so it becomes like mango oat oatmeal," she explained. She added that she is a "big snacker." One of her go-tos is peanut butter mixed with honey and cinnamon, "and I put that on brown bread or something and I add some banana pieces on it," she said. For lung she might eat "Haji with some root tea and then maybe some quinoa with some dal or something like that." Her dinner is similar to her lunch. "I try and be healthy. I try and not eat too much or eat anything too heavy or any of that," she adds.

Lots of Water

She also makes sure to hydrate throughout the day. "I'm quite good with my water," she says, admitting she "might not drink water at very consistent intervals" but "when I do drink water, I really chug water," she says. "I will finish half a big bottle in one time of me drinking water. So I don't really sip water, but I chug water. So my water intake usually at the end of the day is quite good. The last thing I do before I sleep is actually chug water. That's actually the last thing I do before I go to sleep. I brush my teeth, come in bed and drink a lot of water."

Binge Eating at Night

"Binge eating in the middle of the night," is one of the not-so-healthy habits of Alaya. "As much as I feel it's very bad you're not supposed to do it, and that's the last time I'm supposed to do it, but something happens, it strikes 10 o'clock, and then my body just says: Food, food, food, food, food," she jokes. So I do end up snacking in the middle of the night, and that's not the healthiest thing, but there's nothing I can do. I've tried, but if my body's hungry, I have to feed it."
