Alexandra Daddario Shares Swimsuit Photo During "Day at the Pool"
Alexandra Daddario is heating up the Beverly Hills Hotel in her bathing suit. The White Lotus star steams up the Dior Cabana at the legendary hotel in one of her latest social media posts, modeling a designer swimsuit to perfection. "Day at the pool," she captioned the Instagram snap. How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Alexandra Daddario stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.
She Does Hot Yoga
Alexandra has two secret weapons for surviving long days on set. The first? Hot yoga, she told Women's Health. There is a laundry list of reasons to do yoga, explains Harvard Health. "Researchers found that people who practiced yoga for at least 30 minutes once a week for at least four years, gained less weight during middle adulthood," they said. "People who were overweight actually lost weight. Overall, those who practiced yoga had lower body mass indexes (BMIs) compared with those who did not practice yoga. Researchers attributed this to mindfulness. Mindful eating can lead to a more positive relationship with food and eating."
She Does Acupuncture
The other? Acupuncture. "If I do them back-to-back, it's almost like a computer rebooting," she told Elle. "I'm obsessed," she says. "I've had the needles everywhere—all over my body."
She Strength Trains
Alexandra also does weekly strength-training sessions with celeb trainer Patrick Murphy, who she has been working with since 2015. Their sessions focus on back strengthening for posture (with exercises like dumbbell rows, dynamic bridges, and reverse flies) and hip and glute activation for Alexandra's goal of a bigger butt (utilizing moves like clamshells, Bulgarian split squats, and walking lunges). "She puts in the work and never looks for shortcuts," says Murphy.
She Hikes and Swims
Alexandra loves getting outside and going for a hike or swiml. "I've found that my body heals faster and responds better if I'm in tune with myself and can be in nature," she says.
Here Is What She Eats in a Day
Alexandra nourishes her body with food. She starts with coffee—a cappuccino with almond or oat milk—followed by a breakfast of yogurt and fruit or egg whites with spinach and toast. Lunch is a turkey sandwich with cheese, mustard, and mayo. Her go-to snack? Chocolate. Dinner is usually a bowl of pasta with veggies and olive oil or a home-cooked steak and fresh vegetables or hearty soup.
