Her daughter, Deia, is her “new workout buddy.”

Iza Calzado is getting back into shape – in her workout clothes. In a new social media post the Filipino actress and television presenter shows off her amazing body in a sports bra and leggings during a strength training session. "First time back at the gym in a little over a year! It's really strange when you workout outside of your home in a proper gym, especially in Awaken. I miss you so much!" she wrote in the post, adding that her daughter, Deia, is her "new workout buddy." How does the 41-year-old approach diet and fitness? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits.

Iza, who has hostedThe Biggest Loser, told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) that she can relate to the struggles of the show's contestants. "It's hard to maintain, you know, trying to achieve goals," she said. "You know, once in a while I get off track and I'm not as focused as I would like to be."

Move As Much as Your Can

Moving a lot is a great way to lose weight. She said "the best" advice is "to get as much rest as you can and then be as active as you can be." Most of her workouts focus around strength training. According to the Mayo Clinic, strength and weight training help reduce body fat, preserve and increase lean muscle mass, and burn calories more efficiently. Strength training may also help you:

  • Develop strong bones
  • Manage your weight
  • Enhance your quality of life
  • Manage chronic conditions
  • Sharpen your thinking skills

Cut Down on Carbs

She also suggests "cutting down on carbs." While she avoids crash diets, she does try to keep carbs to a minimum and fill her plate with fruits and vegetables, and lean meat in moderation. "It's hard!" she admits.

Iza also told the outlet that when she was in Sydney, she lost weight by getting her steps in. "I was still working out when I was there, but I was walking more, there was too much walking, I was always active," she said. 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.

Cheat Meals

Iza allows herself to indulge on occasion. "I have my cheat meals, but my cheat meals cannot be every day— that's for me. You know, there are people who can really do it, eh," she said.

Body Acceptance

Liza tries to love and accept her body the way it is. "We're all built with different shapes," Iza said. "If I'm built this way, I just have to maximize it."
