"Lifting gets my heart rate up and makes me look amazing, but more importantly it makes me feel strong. Scrap that, I don't just feel strong – I am strong, and I think it's important for women to feel that way. The only thing I don't like about it are the callused hands. They suck. I went back to LA recently and didn't do any weight training for a while and it was the first time in ages that I didn't have hands that looked like I'd been working in construction," she said, according to Coach.
She Has Been "Pretty Much a Vegan"
"A vegan diet that's low in processed foods and high in whole, plant-based foods has many health benefits, says the Cleveland Clinic, soon quoting dietitian Julia Zumpano, RD: "A plant-based diet involves more than not eating meat or animal products. It focuses on eating mainly fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains, nuts, seeds and oils." She added: "Just eating more plant-based foods overall is a huge leap in the right direction. So if being a vegan feels overwhelming, consider starting with a goal of eating more plant-based foods."
She Drinks Vegan Protein Shakes
Plant-based protein powders are a low-sugar (if you pick one that's low sugar, please do), high-fiber alternative to popular dairy-based supplements. A study by the University of Tampa that compared plant protein to whey found it to be equally as effective at changing body composition and boosting muscle recovery and growth. But with less sugar and a healthier fat profile, plant-based proteins will also improve your gut health at the same time as they're fueling your muscles. Hemp, rice, and pea proteins are all good options; however, you'll want to ensure you're getting a complete protein with a full amino acid profile, which is why a blend that combines all three is superior.
She Does Yoga
"I still do a lot of yoga. Not only is it good for mobility and injury prevention, it de-stresses me too. You need to have a balance of hardcore stuff and things that centre you, plus your body needs time to recover after doing heavy deadlifts and squats," she said, according to Coach.
She Enjoys Fatty Foods Once in a While
Ashley's go-to indulgence is pizza. "Ordering in? Whatever you do, eat off a plate—not out of the box! Research shows that people consume more when their food is served on a larger plate. In fact, one Georgia Institute of Technology study discovered that those eating off a 12-inch plate consumed 22% more calories than those dining on 10-inches! We can only imagine what those stats would look like is a giant pizza box was thrown into the mix. Not only does eating off a smaller plate trick your brain into thinking you've eaten more, keeping the other slices out of reach will make you think twice before going back for more," says our sister site Eat This, Not That!
