Find a Fitness Routine You Love

Ileana takes exercise seriously. In a recent Instagram story she threw down some of her wisdom. "Doesn't get easier, you just get stronger," she wrote alongside her post-sweat session snap. 


Find a Fitness Routine You Love

Ileana stresses the importance of actually liking your fitness regiment. "There was a point when I was working out three hours a day, I was on the strictest diet possible and I still wasn't happy with my weight, which by the way, was 50 kilos. It's bizarre how I was obsessing about my body and how starved I was," she told iDiva. "The kind of fitness routine I was on previously, I used to be miserable."


Prioritize Self-Care

Ileana stresses the importance of self-care "Take care of yourself. Take care of what you choose to put into your system. The body you have is uniquely beautiful so nourish it – physically as well as mentally. Lastly dress up, show up, not for anyone else. Just do it for you. It's so worth it. Trust me," she captioned an Instagram post.  


Flaunt Your Body

Ileana is all about showing off her body and embracing it exactly the way it is. "I have flab and I am not ashamed of it," she told iDiva. "I don't care if people look at me and think I've put on weight. I am happy because I am healthy and I am eating right. The problem is that people have the wrong notion of fitness and think being fit means being skinny but that's just so wrong."


Balance Diet with Workout

Ileana believes in eating what you want and exercising accordingly. "Now I eat what I want to and be happy about it, then workout towards losing the calories. I figured what's the point if I can't enjoy myself," she told iDiva. 


Eat in Moderation

A self-proclaimed foodie, Ileana allows herself to indulge in moderation and even eats one piece of chocolate every night. She also likes to cook and bake for her loved ones. "Thankfully I don't eat it all, I try and feed other people, and I make sure to combine my intake with healthy food and go for a run regularly, " she told iDiva.


Eat for Your Blood Type

Ileana has dabbled in the Blood Group diet, which involves lots of rice, meat, and chicken. In general she tries to avoid wheat and milk and bakes gluten-free bread. "But it's tough when I've got to travel because there's so much good food to try out," she told iDiva. 


Make a Splash

Ileana is all about water exercise. Her Instagram feed is filled with multiple photos of herself swimming, snorkeling, and also paddleboarding. "Me running away from my responsibilities 🤓 #byeeee," she captioned a recent video.
