Brittan Byrd is heating up Hawaii in her swimsuit. The Too Hot to Handle star flaunts her incredible figure in a tiny bathing suit in one of her latest posts, posing all over the beach for her followers. "Yesterday's UV bath," she captioned the series of Instagram snaps. How does the reality star and model stay so fit? Read on to see 5 of Brittan Byrd's top diet and fitness tips for staying in shape and the photos that prove they work.
Take a Hike
Brittan loves outdoor exercise. One of her favorite ways to break a sweat is by taking a hike. She captioned this series of photos "mother nature & her creation." Hitting the trails is always a good idea, according to the National Parks Service. "Hiking is one of the best ways to get exercise. No matter what type of trail you find yourself on, hiking is a great whole-body workout—from head to toe and everything in between," they explain. Some of the physical benefits include building stronger muscles and bones, improving your sense of balance, improving your heart health, and decreasing the risk of certain respiratory problems. It also offers many mental health benefits, according to a Stanford University study.
In this Instagram post you can find Brittan"Chillin courtside," during a game of tennis. Why should you pick up a racket? Tennis combines cardio and aerobic exercise, as there is a lot of running around and hand-eye coordination. "While tennis provides numerous health benefits—improved aerobic fitness and anaerobic endurance, muscular fitness (grip strength and endurance), flexibility, multiple skill parameters (balance, speed, agility and quickness), reactivity, and power—it also is psychologically demanding," says ACE Fitness.
Brittan is a big fan of yoga for the mind-body benefits. "On my journey to ultimate health, health of my mind, my spirit, and my body ♡ what are you doing today to nourish your internal garden?" she revealed in a post. There is a laundry list of reasons to do yoga, explains Harvard Health. "Researchers found that people who practiced yoga for at least 30 minutes once a week for at least four years, gained less weight during middle adulthood," they said. "People who were overweight actually lost weight. Overall, those who practiced yoga had lower body mass indexes (BMIs) compared with those who did not practice yoga. Researchers attributed this to mindfulness. Mindful eating can lead to a more positive relationship with food and eating."
Do Water Sports
Even while on vacation, Brittan finds ways to sweat. "Blue's on blue's," she captioned a recent photo of herself ready to go surfing. She also loves to snorkel. Here she enjoys "a magical moment with these beautiful creatures 🦋nothing compares to this place, i'm beyond grateful," she captioned the Instagram video. Surprisingly, putting on a snorkel and fins and swimming through the water is a great workout. In addition to being a great aerobic exercise and burning calories, other health benefits may include improved cardiovascular function, stress reduction, mood enhancement, and muscular toning.
Brittan makes sure to drink plenty of water. You can often find the island girl sipping out of a coconut. According to the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine men should drink about 15.5 cups (3.7 liters) of fluids a day and women about 11.5 cups (2.7 liters) of fluids.
