Eva Marcille, Slimmed Down in Cheetah-Print Swimsuit, Says "Life is Good"

Here are her top health habits.

Eva Marcille is looking wild on the beach – in her swimsuit. In a new social media post the Real Housewives of Atlanta star shows off her amazing body in a cheetah-print swimsuit while frolicking on the shoreline while vacationing at The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort, Puerto Rico. "Life is for the living!!!!!" she captioned the series of Instagram snaps. How did the reality star slim down? Here is everything you need to know about her top health habits. 



Eva starts her day with coffee. "I don't eat breakfast. . .I drink breakfast, it's coffee. There's creamer in there, there's extra coffee, and then I go get more coffee," she told According to the Cleveland Clinic, there are several benefits of drinking coffee in moderation. "It acts on your brain to improve memory, mood, reaction times, and mental function," they say, citing a study finding that caffeine can improve endurance and performance during exercise. It is also antioxidant-rich, can ward off diabetes, prevent neurologic disease, lower cancer risk, and ward off depression, they point out.


High Protein, Big Lunch


Eva skips breakfast but makes up for it with a big lunch. "Lunch looks like the average person's Thanksgiving dinner. That's usually my largest meal," she explained. "I will go to Houston's [restaurant] and have a whole Hawaiian rib eye at 11:15 in the morning. I open up with the restaurant." She also has a baked potato and salad. "[I] try to get some greens on there, you know," she said. "As long as there's some bacon in the salad we can get that down at lunch." For her "post-lunch, pre-dinner meal," Eva eats "whatever's available," ranging from "crab fingers and dirty rice" to a Subway sandwich. 



Eva is a runner. "Feeling good after my run today," she captioned a post. Eva credits her husband, Mike Sterling, for inspiring her to get out and moving. "Motivated by my amazing husband @miketsterling who leads by example and dedication." According to the Mayo Clinic, running is great for cardiovascular health, muscle building, and weight loss. "For every mile run, the average person will burn approximately 100 calories," they say. 




Before bed, "I do have a glass of wine," Eva admits. "Glasses. I don't like to waste wine. If I open you, I'm drinking you." There are health benefits of drinking a glass of vino. "Red wine, in moderation, has long been thought of as heart healthy," says the Mayo Clinic. "The alcohol and certain substances in red wine called antioxidants may help prevent coronary artery disease, the condition that leads to heart attacks." While red wine is slightly healthier than white, the lighter shade of vino generally has fewer calories than the darker shade. 



Eva also takes supplements, like cEVAd CBD oil and hydrates, all of which contribute to her physique. "Between my CBD oil, my water, and all of my meals, that's how I stay snatched!" 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.
