She Is Disciplined

Eva is extremely disciplined when it comes to her health habits. "Especially as you get older, people want to know the secret to looking good and there is no secret. It's diet and exercise," she explained to Vogue Australia. And it isn't a one or the other type of equation. "People say they eat well but they don't exercise. Or they run 20 miles a day but they can't lose weight. You have to do both."


She Does a Lot of Different Workouts

Instead of relying on one type of workout to stay in shape, Eva is constantly rotating them. "I do a lot. I'm a runner, I do yoga, I do pilates, I do SoulCycle and I'm just constantly mixing it up," she told People. She has recently picked up trampolining, taking classes using her JumpSport trampoline. "Saturday workouts are better with a trampoline," she captioned an image of the springy workout tool, which she has dubbed the "Rolls Royce" of trampolines. 


Her Diet Is Veggie Rich


Eva maintains a clean diet, heavy on the veggies "After I run, I eat probably the same thing every morning, which is egg whites with spinach and turkey bacon," she told The Cut. "I could easily be a vegetarian because I love vegetables so much and I feel like L.A. is a place that can support healthy living," she added to InStyle. "I love cooking with vegetables and I have a secret for cooking with vegetables, [which] is that they don't need a lot. A lot of people cover them in cheese or cover them in a sauce, and vegetables really only need olive oil."


Her Workouts Are Intense

In addition to classes, Eva weight trains with Grant Roberts. She fill her Instagram feed with clips of her hardcore workouts, involving compound moves to work multiple muscles simultaneously, like squat/rows, sled pushes, battle ropes, and school deadlifts. 


She Has a Healthy Approach to Wellness'

Eva has a realistic approach to what is healthy. She once revealed to Health that at her skinniest, she was also the unhealthiest she had ever been. "I try to have a healthy outlook. I'm your everlasting, hopeless optimist!" she said.  "I don't feel like we should go by these rules and social constructs of society where you have to be a certain size to be pretty," she added to Health a few years later.
