Jasmine Sanders Shares Swimsuit Photo Looking "Stunning"
Jasmine Sanders is turning up the heat in Charleston – in her swimsuit. In one of her latest social media posts, the model-slash-influencer, who also goes by the nickname "Golden Barbies," shows off her famous figure in a tiny bathing suit. "You can thank my niece for these ☺️ Couldn't pick a fave – what's yours?" she asked her 6 million-plus Instagram followers. How does the 32-year-old maintain her gorgeous physique? Here are her best pieces of health and wellness advice.
Size and Weight Don't Matter
Jasmine doesn't pay attention to the numbers. "I don't mind what size I am. I honestly couldn't tell you my jeans size because I haven't worn them in forever. I'm in activewear all the time because that's what I'm comfortable wearing daily," she told Fox News. "I've been different sizes over the years. I was extremely tiny at some point, still healthy, but very small in the eyes of a lot of people," she continued. "Now that I'm older – I've been in the industry for over 15 years – I feel like I've made a pretty nice name for myself. I know how to maintain the weight that I'm at or lose at a healthy rate. But more importantly, I want to make sure I'm feeling my best self mentally. So I would tell girls to embrace your curves. Feel good about yourself, no matter what size you are. I work out to feel good and experience life. I want to feel comfortable in the skin that I'm in. And it doesn't matter what the measuring tape says."
Hit the Gym
If you want a fit figure like Jasmine, you will have to work for it. "I definitely try to do faster cardio in the morning just to get it out of the way. And then if I can, I'll do some type of activity outside, like jump rope. But I also focus a lot on my legs like squats, lunges, and mountain climbers," she told Fox News. "I also have a StairMaster. But if I'm not doing that, I go on a bike ride down the beach. I also like meeting up with friends to work out right before a shoot because I want to prepare myself mentally more than anything."
Focus on Maintaining a Balanced Diet
Jasmine recommends a protein-centric diet. She does cheat on occasion. "I love crab legs and crab boils. I have a friend who makes amazing crab boils and he delivers them to my house. I like my pasta. I've been loving burgers lately and I'm not really a burger girl," she told Fox News. "But I try to balance it out throughout the day. If I eat something like a burger, then I'll have my salads and get some grains in. I think moderation is key."
Take ACV Shots
Jasmine maintains that "leading up to a swimsuit shoot, I definitely eat healthily. I take my vitamins. I do apple cider vinegar in the morning." Why ACV? "For me, I just feel like it helps with my digestive system. I feel better after a couple of days of taking it. A lot of my friends can't drink it and hate the taste of it *laughs*. I like to add a little bit of water and lemon to make it taste a little better. But I don't taste it anymore," she added.
Jasmine maintains that Pilates is essential for preparing her body for rigorous modeling shoots. "You have to be strong enough to hold these positions for a long time. You're popping your body and contorting it in a certain way," she told Fox News. "I find Pilates really helpful, especially when you're modeling and holding poses for a long time. At the end of a shoot, your body gets really tired and you're exhausted. And for some shoots, you have to do that for two, three days in a row. It can be a lot on your body. But I also love stretching after a shoot. It's all about finding ways to keep moving and staying active throughout your day."
