She Plays Soccer

Clearly one of the ways Gabriella stays is such great shape is by playing soccer. Mercedes Carnethon, MD, told the American Heart Association that soccer is a great workout for many reasons. "It is a game of continuous running and with very little stopping," said Carnethon, an associate professor of preventive medicine at Northwestern University in Chicago. "It also has anaerobic elements – that high intensity where you're sprinting and then resting – you're constantly moving." Sports researcher Peter Krustrup, who has spent more than 15 years studying the health benefits of soccer, added that recreational-level play and soccer-related exercise drills can help reduce cholesterol and blood pressure. Soccer also can help shift body composition by decreasing fat and increasing lean muscle.


She Has Learned How to Deal with Trolls

Gabby is no stranger to trolls. "I like to keep [the hateful comments] on my profiles and I don't delete them," she told The Mirror. "Young girls think they want to be an influencer but they don't see the downsides. I like to make people aware." There was one occasion when trolls "broke her," but she has vowed that it won't happen again. "Not everyone's going to like you. I repeat that to myself when I see these comments," she said. "You've just got to develop a thick skin."


She Hydrates

Gabby drinks a lot of water. According to the Mayo Clinic, hydration is important for a variety of reasons. Water helps get rid of waste through urination, perspiration and bowel movements, keeps your temperature normal, lubricates and cushions joints, and helps protect sensitive tissues.


She Drinks White Wine

Gabby can often be found with a glass of white wine in hand. While red wine is slightly healthier than white, the lighter shade of vino generally has fewer calories than the darker shade. "Red wine, in moderation, has long been thought of as heart healthy," says the Mayo Clinic. "The alcohol and certain substances in red wine called antioxidants may help prevent coronary artery disease, the condition that leads to heart attacks."


She Drinks Coffee

Gabby also loves drinking coffee. Science continues to prove that drinking coffee is great for your health. In fact, a new 2022 study published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology found that drinking two to three cups a day of most types of coffee – especially a mild to moderate intake of ground, instant, and decaffeinated coffee – may protect you from cardiovascular disease and an early death.
