Housewives Star Emily Simpson Shares Swimsuit Photo From Dominican Republic

Here are the reality star’s top health habits. 

Emily Simpson is heating up Mexico – in a white hot swimsuit. In one of her latest social media posts, the Real Housewives star flaunts her incredible body in a tiny bathing suit, while vacationing at Club Med. Emily has been very open about her weight loss journey, revealing in November 2020 that after struggling with her weight for most of her life, she lost 30 pounds. What are the health habits she swears by? Celebwell rounded up some of them. 



Emily understands the importance of accountability. "I never wanted to show these photos publicly because Im ashamed of where I let myself get, but here I am showing my transformation because I want to be transparent with you all. I worked my butt off to get here and Im so proud of how far Ive come and continue to go! I lost myself and my confidence through gaining 30 lbs. in one year in front of millions of people on a Reality TV Show. Here I am a year and a half later feeling sexy, confident in my own skin, and like the EMILY I am meant to be!" she captioned a before-and-after Instagram post  of her transformation. 



Emily spends a lot of time exercising. She hired Paulina Taylor Hefferan to help her achieve weight loss goals. They work out at 6 a.m. three days per week. "Sometimes we become too overwhelmed with life, kids, depression, weight gain, hormones, relationships, illness etc … but you have to start somewhere. Make today that day. A year from now will pass by regardless. Might as well make it your healthiest yet," she captioned this Instagram post. "I have more work to do to get to my ultimate goal. "But I'm enjoying the journey and relishing in the successes."


No Scales

Emily doesn't believe in scalea. "Not only have I lost significant body fat and several inches, but I've gained a new found acceptance of my body. I don't weigh myself very often because the number on the scale doesn't define me as a person nor is it wholly indicative of progress.  I measure my progress and Heath by other methods of measurement such as endurance, strength, how many times I can walk up the Salt Creek Hill in one day and how I look in my clothes. I've changed physically but most importantly I've changed mentally. I've learned that weight loss doesn't have to be all in or nothing, you just have to do 1 thing better than the day before. The key to long term results is consistency and having someone in your corner cheering you on!" she revealed in this Instagram post. 



Emily revealed her "best trick to help with losing weight" during an Ask Me Anything thread on Instagram. "[Don't] eat past 6 pm and drink lots of water," she said. "Try it for a week. You'll see a difference!" 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 Calorie Counting

Emily revealed another one of her healthy habits in an Instagram Story. "I don't count calories…that's too much work for me. I just keep staples in my refrigerator at all times: ground turkey, spinach/lettuce, eggs, avocados, tomatoes, shredded carrots, black beans, corn tortillas, salsa [,] vegan cheese (I avoid dairy)…etc."
