Ellie Goulding in Workout Gear Shares Grueling Boxing Routine

“You just know a lot of men have tested me 💝,” she jokes in the comments section of the Instagram post.

Ellie Goulding is fighting for her body – in her workout clothes. In a new social media post the singer shows off her amazing body in boxing shorts and a tank during a grueling boxing workout with her trainer. "You just know a lot of men have tested me 💝," she jokes in the comments section of the Instagram post. How does the singer approach diet, fitness, and self-care? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 


HIIT Workouts

High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is one of Ellie's go-to methods. "I'll run to Faisal's class (at Barry's Bootcamp) in the morning. It's only about 25 minutes from home and it gets my heart rate up enough to go in and be ready because it's quite tough," she told Women's Health UK. "I'm more of a burst girl than sustained. I like it when the treadmills on dynamic and I do sprints. I prefer using my own body as weight, so press-ups, mountain climbers and burpees." There is lots of research backing up the benefits of HIIT workouts, including body fat reduction, improved cardiovascular function, and mental health. It is also time effective. 


Low Carb Diet

Ellie doesn't eat carbs. "I can't remember the last time I ate bread either, honestly," she confessed to Jessie Ware on her Table Manners podcast. "When I eat carbs – it's not just a vanity thing – I genuinely don't feel great when I have them. I feel like I'm someone who's naturally quite active. When I have big bowls of pasta and things like that I do feel like I've eaten a blanket or something really heavy."


Mostly Plant-Based Diet

Ellie tries to avoid animal products. "I eat a lot of things for their nutritional value. The things I love for my taste are sweet things," she said on the podcast. While she does consume some dairy now, she still doesn't eat red meat. "I'm all about dairy….I'm not mad about coconut yogurt and all those dairy-free alternatives," she added. "In the morning, I'll have a messy bowl which is yogurt with lots of goji berries and nuts and I love prunes and dates." 




Ellie is a fan of fasting. "I built my way up to 40-hour fasts over time (started with 12)," Ellie told The Mirror. "It helps blood sugar control and helps fight inflammation – the mother of ALL health problems." She says she does it "very safely by having a purposefully nutritious food day the day before and after," she added. "On the fast day, I drink high-grade electrolytes and a LOT of water," plus tea and coffee. "Fasting is safe and beneficial unless you are diabetic or have serious health issues," she continued, claiming it helps give her "digestive system a break."

Ellie understands the importance of rest. "Sleep is crucial too. Lots of sleep," she writes in the post. She also revealed that she takes "magnesium before bed." What are the health benefits of sleep? According to the Sleep Foundation, getting enough z's is a mood booster, promotes heart health, regulates blood sugar, improves mental function, restores your immune system, helps relieve stress, and aids in weight loss.
