You Have to Eat Healthy and Exercise

According to Eva, the equation to staying in shape is simple. "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 told Vogue Australia. "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."


Do Lots of Different Workouts

Eva knows the importance of maintaining variety with exercise "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 revealed to People


Eat Your Veggies!

Eat fuels up with plant-based foods. "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."


No Pain, Not Gain

Whether she is busting her butt with Grant Roberts or jumping away on her JumpSport trampoline, Eva makes sure to go hard when it comes to exercise. 


Focus On Healthy, Not Skinny

Eva's emphasis is not on the scale, revealing to Health that her unhealthiest moment was also her skinniest. "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 a few years later.
