She Once Did Atkins

After welcoming her second child in 2014, Alyssa started with a low-carb diet to lose the baby weight and then transition to Atkins. "This journey with Atkins is about me feeling better overall, having more energy and reaching my happy weight," Alyssa, a spokesperson for the brand, told People. "I enjoy all my favorite foods. I love chicken and fish; I eat lots of vegetables, healthy fats, low sugar fruits, cheese, and nuts. Some of my favorite things include parmesan-crusted chicken with cheesy cauliflower bake and tacos night with fresh guacamole. I have all the fixings and just use lettuce cups in place of tortillas," she says. "In fact, Atkins inspired me to learn how to cook for myself and my family using foods that are lower in carbs."

Most Hollywood stars have a personal trainer on hand, but not Alyssa. "I don't like working with a one-on-one coach. I feel like it's too much pressure," she told E! News. "I love spinning," Alyssa told The Cut during an event at Peloton. "I also love Pilates and yoga. Occasionally I'll take a dance class or a Zumba class. But I really like to spin because I feel like it's a full-body workout: 45 minutes, you're in and you're out. I don't really have time for much more than that. I used to do a lot of yoga, but I just don't have time for a 90-minute class anymore."

Alyssa prioritizes hydration. She revealed to People that she makes sure to drink six glasses of water with lemon every single day. 


Drink Protein Shakes

Alyssa starts her day with a cup of coffee with almond milk and protein shake. Her go-to recipe involves two cups of almond milk, an ounce of whey protein powder, one-half small banana and one-quarter tsp. Cinnamon. 


Focus on Lifestyle

"I don't use the word diet because if I use the word diet, it's not happening," she told E! News. Instead, she maintains, it is about lifestyle. 


Don't Eat Alone


Alyssa likes to eat meals with others. "I actually don't like to eat alone," she told The Cut. "I think that has something to do with the fact that I'm Italian, and food is always about family and celebration and having meals. So if I'm alone, I'm much more likely to pick up a shake or a bar than I am to actually sit and have a meal by myself."
