Geordie Shore's Sophie Kasaei Shares Swimsuit Photo From the Caribbean
Sophie Kasaei is living her best life in the tropics in her swimsuit. In a new social media post shared from the Caribbean, the Geordie Shore star shows off her insane body in a bathing suit. "I'm more of a island type of gurylllll," she captioned the series of Instagram snaps, driving her followers wild. "Island queen," commented one. "Bloody gorgeous," added another. How does the reality star approach diet and exercise? Celebwell rounded up her top lifestyle tips.
Don't "Obsess" Over Food
Sophie lost a lot of weight in 2018, which she attributes to coming to terms with her disillusionment about eating. "When I look back, I just remember how indulged I used to be with food. My whole life revolved around food, I'd be eating breakfast and thinking about what I was going to have for dinner, I was just food obsessed," she told Fabulous. "I thought I could eat what I wanted. Looking back, I never ever thought I was big. I had one of those mindsets where I thought I was smaller than I actually was. I don't know if I had body dysmorphia, but the other way round. I genuinely thought I was a lot smaller. I think that's probably why I was unhealthy for all those years, because I genuinely thought I was normal."
Eliminating takeout can make a huge difference with weight loss, according to Sophie. "I've lost about 10lb during lockdown – that's in two months, so a pound a week," she told Fabulous. "That's just because I'm not eating takeaways and I'm not traveling up and down the country for work, stopping at services for meals. I've been cooking really healthy meals for myself."
Exercise in the Morning
Rise and exercise, says Sophie. "When I get up, I workout straightaway with my dad for an hour, because that makes me feel great," she told Fabulous. Physical activity is anything that gets your body moving. Each week adults need 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity and 2 days of muscle-strengthening activity, according to the current Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans.
Cheat on Occasion
Weight gain and loss is "easy come, easy go," according to Sophie, so the occasional cheat meal is totally fine. "I don't worry about gaining a couple of pounds, if I do put weight on I know I can easily lose it, because I know exactly how my body works," she told Fabulous. "If I over indulge, I don't put myself down about putting weight on. That's not me at all."
Eat Healthy But Avoid A Lot of Carbs
Sophie's diet involves little carbs. "Breakfast is two chicken sausages with scrambled or poached eggs, mushrooms, tomatoes and a slice of gluten-free bread. I'm a sucker for a Starbucks sugar-free caramel latte with coconut milk," she told Closer UK. "For lunch, I'll always have some sort of seafood – maybe prawns. If I'm out, I'll get a protein box of chicken, broccoli and eggs, or a soup. I'll usually end up eating dinner late, around 9pm, which isn't great as it'll just sit on my stomach. I'll have fish, roast vegetables and microwaveable rice. I snack on chicken Fridge Raiders, Quavers, Wotsits or popcorn. I really prefer savory foods – I think most Northerners do, which is why there's a Greggs on every corner in Newcastle!"
