She also revealed that she eats everything in moderation, consuming several small meals per day, each with a source of protein, healthy fats, veggies, fruits, and fresh fruit juices in her diet. "I make it a point to have eight meals a day. That way, I can limit my portion sizes and food gets digested easily. This diet has worked for me," she said.

She Challenges Herself

Alia gives herself challenges so she can achieve all of her fitness goals. "20 done 20 to go," she captioned this photo, midway through a 40-day challenge. Says the Mayo Clinic:

  • "Consider your fitness goals. Are you starting a fitness program to help lose weight? Or do you have another motivation, such as preparing for a marathon? Having clear goals can help you gauge your progress and stay motivated.
  • Create a balanced routine. Get at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity a week, or a combination of moderate and vigorous activity. The guidelines suggest that you spread out this exercise during the course of a week. To provide even greater health benefit and to assist with weight loss or maintaining weight loss, at least 300 minutes a week is recommended."
