Melissa Gorga Shows Off Fit Figure During "Florida Fun" 

Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 

Melissa Gorga is heating up Boca Raton – in her swimsuit. In a new social media post the Real Housewives of New Jersey star flaunts her flat abs and fit figure in a variety of bathing suits while vacationing over spring break. "Florida fun," she captioned a series of Instagram snaps. How does the 45-year-old stay in such great shape? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 


Strength Training

"I don't like a lot of muscle," she explained to Women's Health. "I like to stay a little bit more feminine. I don't know. I don't think it would look right." Her go-to form of fitness is strength training. "I do a lot of lifting. I don't do that much cardio, because I run around so much," she added, revealing that she works out at least four times a week for an hour at a time, often targeting "butts and guts" to tone her booty and abs. "I feel like even if you're a little bit heavier, it's all about toning your body. Work with what you're working with, but keep it tight."


No Fad Diets


"I never do fad diets," Melissa dished to Women's Health. "I feel like I do a lot better with my own routine. It's worked for me forever." She prioritizes healthy habits over temporary fixes. "It's a lifestyle for me. I feel better when I eat healthy. If I don't work out for a week or two, I feel miserable."

Melissa is "huge" on drinking "so much" water. "I pee a lot because I drink a lot of water. So I feel like I'm constantly running to the bathroom because I just drink so much water. So … I know it's such, like, a cliche, but it's so true. It's one of the truest things for your skin and for the flush out your body," she told Us Weekly. 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.


Protein Based Meals

Melissa focuses her meals around protein and keeps carbs to a minimum. For example, she might have a grilled chicken salad or turkey sandwich for lunch, and a carb-free meal leater in the day. "For dinner, it's always a piece of meat and vegetables."


Low Sodium Diet

Melissa has a trick to avoid bloating. "I won't eat, like, salty food the day before, 'cause I do retain water," Melissa told Us Weekly about how she keeps her tummy tight prior to putting on a swimsuit. "So, it's like, I pay attention if I'm going to eat, like, anything really salty or Chinese food or anything that's going to give me a lot of salt. I would tend to stick away from [it] if I know I've got to put a bikini on the next day."
