Mittenaere works out with a trainer several times a week. "I try to go twice a week, sometimes three times," she says. "I have a [trainer] so he helps show me what I have to do to work out the body part I want to work, and if I'm on my own, I run and I do ab [exercises] and a lot of squats!"


Lots of Swimming

Mittenaere spends plenty of time in the pool. "Swimmers have about half the risk of death compared with inactive people," says the CDC. "Exercising in water offers many physical and mental health benefits and is a good choice for anyone who wants to be more active."


Balanced Diet

Mittenaere enjoys a balanced diet, complete with pizza and pasta. "My typical breakfast is oats with milk and banana," she says. "If I have time I cook some eggs, but I eat only the whites. For lunch, I like doing pasta with tomatoes, avocado and chicken. I try to eat a lot of protein. For dinner I'll have soup with bread."


Coconut Milk Latte

Mittenaere's go-to beverage is an iced coconut milk latte. "The medium-chain saturated fatty acids found in coconut milk can improve heart health, according to a recent study," says the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. "The study showed that Polynesian Islanders who consumed more coconut milk, oil and water, had healthier blood lipid profile levels, which is a key indicator of heart disease."


Ab Workouts

Mittenaere likes to work on her abs, even when she's traveling. "When I travel, I try to work out before I go to bed," she says. "I'll do 10 minutes of abs one day and 10 minutes of butt the next day. There's a lot of videos on YouTube, and I use 10 minutes to do one part of my body."
