Evangeline Lilly is on a hike in her workout clothes. In a new social media post the Lost actress shows off her amazing body in a hiking outfit while sharing words of wisdom. "Fighting is a form of love. Indifference is much closer to hatred," she captioned the Instagram photo. "It's like you always have words of wisdom up your sleeve at any given moment!" commented one of her followers. "More wise words to start out today. Hope you're doing well and have an amazing weekend," added another. How does the star approach diet, fitness, and self-care? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 


Eating Simple Foods

"If I can't pronounce it, likely I don't want to be ingesting it," Evangeline dished on Instagram about her eating habits. "Less is more. If there are 17 ingredients in a pack of chips I would bet my life they are not as good for me as the ones made with potatoes, oil, salt, and pepper."




Evangeline makes sure to stay hydrated. 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.


No Diets

Evangeline has a healthy approach to food. "I don't 'diet'. I strongly dislike the notions of total deprivation that it connotes," Evangeline revealed to her followers on Instagram. "I'm a believer in discipline and indulgence in equal measure. So, when I want to trim down, one of my tricks is to ADD food to my daily intake. I carry on eating the things I want to eat, in moderation, and simply ADD vegetables…to every meal. That's right EVERY: breakfast, lunch and dinner. I'm not talking about ONE leaf of lettuce on a mayo, chicken, aioli, cheese sandwich. I mean a full portion of vegetables kept relatively clean and not cooked to within an inch of recognition. Real veggies. Lightly stir fried veggies. Steamed veggies. LIGHTLY dressed raw veggies. Or, gasp! Raw, bare veggies . Happy veggies ☺️. But I DON'T eat them IN PLACE if the naughty foods, I eat them along WITH the naughty foods. And this keeps ME happy."



"Sleep is the number one thing," Lilly told Women's Health. "I think you need between 8 and 10 hours a night. When I don't sleep enough, I look bloated, my hair gets flat and my skin goes to pot." 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. 



Evangline decotes a lot of time to stretching. "In the past five years I have devoted about 30-50% of my exercise time to stretching. I have found that no other activity can offer me the same bounty of results. If I'm traveling and have nowhere to exercise, I stretch. If I'm bloated and feel like my digestion has slowed, I stretch. To clear a persistent mental fog, I stretch. To release my stresses from a day of work or motherhood, I stretch," she revealed on Instagram. "Stretching builds my strength, my stamina, my circulation, my heart, my lungs, my digestion, my discipline, my attitude, my outlook and my mood. And…maybe most importantly 🤔…it keeps me SLIM."
