"If I can't pronounce it, likely I don't want to be ingesting it," Evangeline explained on Instagram about her approach to eating. "Less is more. If there are 17 ingredients in a pack of chips I would bet my life they are not as good for me as the ones made with potatoes, oil, salt, and pepper."


She Hydrates

Evangeline prioritizes hydration. 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.


She Doesn't Diet

"I don't 'diet'. I strongly dislike the notions of total deprivation that it connotes," Evangeline explained to her followers in an Instagram post. "I'm a believer in discipline and indulgence in equal measure. So, when I want to trim down, one of my tricks is to ADD food to my daily intake. I carry on eating the things I want to eat, in moderation, and simply ADD vegetables…to every meal. That's right EVERY: breakfast, lunch and dinner. I'm not talking about ONE leaf of lettuce on a mayo, chicken, aioli, cheese sandwich. I mean a full portion of vegetables kept relatively clean and not cooked to within an inch of recognition. Real veggies. Lightly stir fried veggies. Steamed veggies. LIGHTLY dressed raw veggies. Or, gasp! Raw, bare veggies . Happy veggies ☺️. But I DON'T eat them IN PLACE if the naughty foods, I eat them along WITH the naughty foods. And this keeps ME happy."


She Sleeps

Evangeline prioritizes rest. "Sleep is the number one thing," Lilly told Women's Health. "I think you need between 8 and 10 hours a night. When I don't sleep enough, I look bloated, my hair gets flat and my skin goes to pot."


She Works Out Almost Every Day

According to Healthy Celeb, Lilly works out almost every day. She dedicates Mondays to chest and back exercises, Tuesdays to arms and legs, Wednesdays to cardio, Thursdays returning to chest and back exercises, and Fridays to arms and legs, with another round of cardio rounding it all out on Saturday.
