She Has a Strong Work(out) Ethic

Ileana is devoted to exercise. This means breaking a sweat when she doesn't feel like it. "Doesn't get easier, you just get stronger," she captioned a recent Instagram post. However, she makes sure not to go overboard. "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 Exercises in the Ocean

Ileana doesn't use a trip to the beach as an excuse not to exercise. She loves burning calories in the ocean, by swimming, snorkeling, and also paddleboarding. "Me running away from my responsibilities 🤓 #byeeee," she captioned a recent video. 


She Loves Herself

Ileana has mad self-love and embraces her body. "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."


She Exercises So She Can Eat

Ileana uses exercises as a way to eat what she wants. "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 Loves Moderation

Ileana eats what she wants in moderation. This includes one piece of chocolate every night. She also likes to cook and bake for her friends. "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.


She Eats Right for Her Blood Type

Ileana follows the Blood Group diet, eating a lot of rice, meat, and chicken. She also avoids 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. 


She Makes Time for Self-Care

Self-care is crucial, per Ileana. "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," Ileana wrote on Instagram.
