Emilia Bechrakis is heating up St. Barths in her bathing suit. In a new social media post the wife of Million Dollar Listing New York's Ryan Serhant shows off her amazing body in a red swimsuit. "Keep chasing the sun," the 38-year-old attorney captioned the post. "Killing that bikini girl," commented one of her followers. "My gorgeous girl!!" added another. How does the reality star maintain her amazing body? Celebwell rounded up her top lifestyle tips.
Don't Be Afraid to Lift Weights
Serhant went from a "skinny girl" growing up in Greece to strong when she finally started exercising after moving to New York and hitting the gym with her husband. "Once I got into it and saw I gained muscle and didn't lose weight, I was hooked!" she told Bella. She does a lot of circuit and weight training at celebrity mecca The Dogpound.
Follow a Mediterranean Style Diet
Emilia is Greek – and eats like it with a Mediterranean style diet. Cooking with olive oil and avoiding sugar are a few of her habits. "After eating fresh food in Greece, I had trouble eating meat and dairy in the United States," she says. While she isn't a vegan she gravitates toward plant-based eating but eats fish.
Avoid Most Dairy
Emilia also limits dairy. However she does have one non-cheat, cheat meal. "My guilty pleasure—which is actually healthy, so it's not even a real guilty pleasure—is Greek frozen yogurt from Mike and Dave's," she said.
Another form of exercise that Emilia loves? Pilates. She often takes classes on the weekends. According to research, Pilates exercises are designed to increase muscle strength, endurance, and flexibility, and to improve posture and balance. Experts maintain that it is a great workout for leaning out.
Emilia also gets her cardio in with the help of spin classes and long walks. Going for a daily walk can be a game changer in terms of exercise, especially at a brisk speed. One study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that walking at a brisk pace for about 30 minutes a day led to a reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, dementia and death, compared with walking a similar number of steps but at a slower pace.
