She Embraces Her Body
Earlier this year, Eiza was featured on the cover of Shape, revealing that she embraces and celebrates her body—cellulite and all. "So happy to share the May issue for Shape," she captioned a photo of the magazine's cover on Instagram. "We spoke about how the fat on my hip is my favorite part of my body and why I feel sexier than ever when I see my thighs an" backside "jiggle. Something I never felt in my 20s. A self love journey to womanhood."
Fat Makes Her Feel Sexy
Gonzalez struggled with self-confidence in the past, but now even her jiggles make her feel sexy. "Maybe four years ago, I went on a trip with my then boyfriend and got photographed by paparazzi at the beach. You could see cellulite on my leg in the photos, and I was so embarrassed," she confessed to Shape. "Now I feel so sexy when I see my cellulite or my" backside — that it's big, with little dimples. I feel so sexy just having a jiggle, or when I sit and my legs create that little fat on the side of my hip. I really do. I feel like a woman, I can move my body, and it makes me feel really empowered, something that I never would have felt in my 20s."
She Trains Hard
Gonzalez keeps her body fit with both weight and interval training. "This body needs to be happy by exercising, because I feel so good when I exercise. I go between three workouts," she said. "I do a lot of weight lifting with high weight, low reps — that's something that this Latina butt needs to get toned. I'm also training for a movie"—this was when she was training for Michael Bay's Ambulance with Jake Gyllenhaal—"by doing a lot of intervals: cardio mixed with movement."
She Also Does Pilates
"I swear by Pilates, and I die by Pilates," Eiza told Shape. "It works out muscles that I don't work out ever. Like this little one under my boob, between my fourth and sixth left ribs."
She Has One Cheat Day Per Week
Gonzalez allows herself one cheat day per week. "One day a week, I eat whatever I want. That's my one rule," she said. "I'll eat brownies. I'll eat pizza. I'll eat all the foods I want to eat because that's what this body needs to be happy."
She Enjoys Cooking
Eiza cooks the food she eats. "This past year, I started finding new recipes and trying to learn how to cook. That really motivated me. I realized that I'm cleaning my system from the inside out, and it really began to show. It was beautiful because I've never felt as healthy as I feel right now," she admitted.
She Keeps Moving
"I like to keep moving every day, not necessarily 'work out' every day, but keep moving," the star told Harper's Bazaar Australia. "It doesn't have to be intense, just getting the body some blood flow and not staying stagnant."
"I have to drink water all day, every day! Water has become such a basic life need for me because I travel so much and that dehydrates you a lot. From the change of weather to the plane, everything can be so harsh on you," she told Harper's Bazaar.
She Is Very Disciplined
"It takes a lot of discipline to wake up every morning two hours before schedule," she told Harper's Bazaar. "People think it's like a 'super power', and I would love to say it's easy, but it's not that simple. But the reward is incredible because you become your own super hero. You see the possibilities and how far your body can go."
She Eats Mostly Plant-Based
Eiza tries to maintain a mostly plant-based diet. "I recently became plant-based as I'm doing a little bit of a switcheroo in my life with food and I've loved it," she told Harper's Bazaar. "I'm trying not to eat as much sugar. I will say, I am a 'chocolate freak', so it's really hard for me, but I choose one day of the week that I allow myself to indulge." She also tries to keep sugar, coffee, and alcohol to a minimum. "I'm trying to live a more organic and responsible life, in terms of how I eat. I try not to touch sugar. I'm trying to bring down the levels of coffee that I drink. I love coffee but it's something that's bad for your lymphatic system."
