She Has a Strong Workout Ethic

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. However, she doesn't overdo it. "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."


She Enjoys Water Exercise

Ileana loves burning calories on the sea! She has shared multiple photos of herself swimming, snorkeling, and also paddleboarding. "Me running away from my responsibilities 🤓 #byeeee," she captioned a recent video. 


She Prioritizes Self-Care

Ileana encourages people to nurture themselves. "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 of herself in workout clothes. 


She Is Proud of Her Curves

If you've got it, flaunt it! Ileana isn't shy about showing off her swimsuit body. The star's feed is filled with photos of herself in two-piece bathing suits. "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."

Ileana used to be super restrictive with her diet, but not anymore. "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. 


She Indulges


Ileana is a self-proclaimed foodie, but has a system that works. She even eats one piece of chocolate every night. She also likes to cook and bake. "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.
