Audrey McGraw has come into prominence over the past year. The 20-year old was mostly seen as the daughter of country music power couple, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill.

In it, she took a walk, and edited it to look black and white. She captioned the post, "Bag o' watercolors secured." How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Audrey McGraw stays in shape and the photos that prove they work—and to get beach-ready yourself, don't miss these essential 30 Best-Ever Celebrity Bathing Suit Photos!
She Spends Time Outside
McGraw spends a lot of time outside. She's an avid nature and landscape photographer, and shares many of her shots on Instagram. McGraw posted this black and white photo of a forest. She captioned it, "Trees reach for the sky!" She also shared this video from her garden, captioning it, "Flowers at home."
As you can see from her recent post, McGraw likes to walk to stay in shape. Walking has a lot of benefits. The National Foundation for Cancer states, "Exercise doesn't need to leave you winded and exhausted. A brisk walk is an excellent form of exercise – as long as you're doing it right! When walking as exercise, you should be slightly out of breath and feel your heart beating a little faster. Getting exercise this way can protect against many types of cancers, including cancer of the bladder, breast, colon, kidney, and stomach. Regular exercise can also prevent obesity, a risk factor for many cancers. Additionally, it can also improve immune system function, control hormones related to cancer growth, and prevent high blood glucose levels of insulin."
She Horseback Rides
McGraw likes to horseback ride. She shared this photo on Instagram of herself riding on the beach. McGraw captioned it, "Pure happiness." Riding has a lot of benefits. The American Heart Association states, "A study commissioned on behalf of the British Horse Society found that horseback riding is indeed a good cardiovascular workout. Even just a half hour of riding is considered 'moderate exercise,' said BHS PR executive Megan Hawkins, 'while trotting exerts more energy than playing badminton.'"
She Gets Vitamin D From the Sun
"You can get vitamin D in a variety of ways, including:
- Sun exposure on your skin (however, people with darker skin and older people may not get enough vitamin D through sunlight. Your geographical location may also prevent adequate vitamin D exposure through sunlight).
- Through the food you eat.
- Through nutritional supplements," says the Cleveland Clinic. "Despite all these methods to get vitamin D, vitamin D deficiency is a common worldwide problem."
She Got Honest About Birth Control
"Post birth control effects are REAL," she once said. "Not only does my body feel wacky and my brain foggy, but my skin especially feels messed up at the moment, like never before… I'm trying my best to stay calm as I know it's a trivial thing to worry about. But at the same time, it's not so easy to deal with."
