Alyssa Milano Shares Swimsuit Photo From "Thanksgiving Vacation"

Here are her top lifestyle habits.

Alyssa Milano is expressing gratitude in her swimsuit. In a new social media post the Charmed and Who's the Boss alum shows off her incredible body at 50, wowwing her followers. "Thanksgiving vacation carousel. Much needed family time complete with healing sea water; rainbows, friends, theater, snuggles, love and hope. I'm so completely in awe of life and feel real guilt to even be able post this when there is so much pain and collective trauma in the world. Please forgive me if this post comes off as insensitive. I continue to pray for peace and for children throughout the world to have what they need to not only survive…but to thrive. I'm grateful for all of you," she captioned the series of Instagram snaps. How does the actress manage to look a fraction of her age? Celebwell rounded up her top health habits. 


Atkins Diet


In 2014 after welcoming her second child Alyssa started with a low-carb diet to lose the baby weight and then switched to Atkins. "This journey with Atkins is about me feeling better overall, having more energy and reaching my happy weight," Alyssa, a spokesperson for the brand, told People. "I enjoy all my favorite foods. I love chicken and fish; I eat lots of vegetables, healthy fats, low sugar fruits, cheese, and nuts. Some of my favorite things include parmesan-crusted chicken with cheesy cauliflower bake and tacos night with fresh guacamole. I have all the fixings and just use lettuce cups in place of tortillas," she says. "In fact, Atkins inspired me to learn how to cook for myself and my family using foods that are lower in carbs."


Group Fitness


"I don't like working with a one-on-one coach. I feel like it's too much pressure," she told E! News about her approach to fitness. "I love spinning," Alyssa told The Cut during an event at Peloton. "I also love Pilates and yoga. Occasionally I'll take a dance class or a Zumba class. But I really like to spin because I feel like it's a full-body workout: 45 minutes, you're in and you're out. I don't really have time for much more than that. I used to do a lot of yoga, but I just don't have time for a 90-minute class anymore."




Alyssa revealed to People that she makes sure to drink six glasses of water with lemon every single day. According to the Mayo Clinic, hydration is important for a variety of reasons. Water helps get rid of waste through urination, perspiration, and bowel movements, keeps your temperature normal, lubricates and cushions joints, and helps protect sensitive tissues.


Protein Shakes


Alyssa prioritizes getting enough protein. She starts her day with a cup of coffee with almond milk and a protein shake – two cups of almond milk, an ounce of whey protein powder, one-half small banana and one-quarter tsp. cinnamon. 


Lifestyle Over Diet


Healthy living is not a trend for Alyssa. "I don't use the word diet because if I use the word diet, it's not happening," she told E! News


Eating Meals with Others

"I actually don't like to eat alone," she told The Cut. "I think that has something to do with the fact that I'm Italian, and food is always about family and celebration and having meals. So if I'm alone, I'm much more likely to pick up a shake or a bar than I am to actually sit and have a meal by myself."
