Gal Gadot Stays Slim Using These Proven Tricks
Gal Gadot, known for her triple threat talents as a singer, model, and actress born in Rosh Ha'ayin, is also a martial artist and a model. The Wonder Woman star even won the Miss Israel title in 2004. With Gal busting into the scene full throttle (little Fast and Furious pun there), it's hard not to notice the effort she puts into her health and wellness. How does she stay so fit? Read on to see the 5 ways Gal Gadot stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.
Gal Prioritizes Meditation and Healthy Sleep Patterns
In an interview with Shape, Gal said: "It's funny how the people who could really benefit from meditation are often the ones who can't find the time to do it." She continues on to explain that in addition to meditation, getting enough quality sleep is key. According to the Mayo Clinic, "research shows proper sleep is essential for good health." If you toss and turn at night, here are some tips to start getting a better night sleep like Gal Gadot.
She Drinks Enough Water
Staying hydrated can lead to a variety of benefits within the body. According to the Mayo Clinic, every cell, tissue and organ in your body needs water to work properly. Drinking enough water can help get rid of wastes in the body, maintain a normal temperature, lubricate and cushion the joints, and protect sensitive tissues. "I wake up and drink water like a camel," says Gal during an interview with Shape. "I have a full, chilled bottle of Smartwater+ Clarity before coffee or anything else."
She Does Interval Training to Stay in Shape
"I like to do interval training, and I'm super grateful that I can do those workouts in my gym at home," explained Gal during her Shape interview. "I try to get to it every day, but sometimes it's more like three to four times a week. It's been a bit challenging to carve out the time with the family at home." For the high-intensity interval training, Gal sometimes uses the assault bike or treadmill three days a week and finishes sessions with a little core work, according to her interview with Women's Health. The Mayo Clinic explains that not only can HIIT workouts help you burn more calories, but it can get you from getting bored during the session, mixing up a variety of activities in one workout.
She Does Resistance Training
As Gal was getting ready for her huge role as Wonder Woman, her workouts also included resistance training, working different muscles depending on the day. Her role in the movie involved plenty of activity, so there was a big focus on lower body strength, according to Women's Health. The Mayo Clinic states that strength training is an important part of an overall fitness program and can lead to amazing benefits.
She Looks for Nutritious Foods
Working out is essential, but you can't work off a terrible diet. They have to go hand-in-hand. Gal sticks to her workouts, but also loves choosing healthy foods and dishes according to the article in Shape. "I'll never forget what a fitness trainer explained: Even if you work out for two hours a day, there are a lot of hours left to eat. So the foods you choose are important," Gal said. "I'm all about the Mediterranean diet. I love to cook it, and I enjoy eating it too." The majority of the time, she's motivated by the way it makes her feel, although admits to splurging on the occasional burger. She's only human—not Amazonian—after all.
