Jennie Garth Shares Swimsuit Video Diving Into Pool

Here’s what her diet and exercise look like.

The weekends just aren't long enough for actress Jennie Garth, and considering how much fun she's having, we don't blame her for feeling that way. Garth, 51, shared a reel of herself happily playing in the pool, wearing a bright pink bikini and a big smile. "Who doesn't want the weekend to be over? 🙋🏼‍♀️," she captioned the post. "You look great Jennie, and super happy! 🙌" a fan commented. How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Garth stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


Fruit and Vegetables

Garth enjoys a balanced diet with lots of vegetables and fruit. "I eat oats in almond milk, and add almond slivers, blueberries, strawberries, chia seeds on top," she says. "But I eat the oats right after I pour the oat milk on them, even before they are softened. I love the crunch of it. [For lunch] a salad. On a day when I am eating well, everything I can find goes into my salad: Avocado, tomatoes, nuts, and for sweetness, I like to add green apple into the mix."


She Plays Golf


Garth loves outdoor activities, especially golf. "For exercise, I do a lot of stretching," she says. "I also love to get outside any chance I get, and right now I am into golf! It's a great activity both mentally and physically because you can walk the course. It keeps me sharp too since you really have to focus. But mostly I love it because it's a way to spend time in nature and see beautiful vistas and trees. And there is a lot of walking involved!"


Lots of Yogurt


Garth enjoys protein-packed Greek yogurt for a healthy and filling snack. "I'm just taking care of myself: Eating less, exercising more, drinking a lot of coconut water," she says. "I eat a lot of Greek yogurt: Greek yogurt in the morning, salads and proteins the rest of the day and maybe a cupcake if I've been a good girl. I don't believe in depriving yourself of things you want."


Mexican Food


Garth and her family love Mexican food and Trader Joe's snacks. "We love Mexican food in our house, and though it's not the healthiest, you can make a taco with lots of vegetables," she says. "I love the vegan cheese, and I'll make a tortilla with vegan cheese, like Daiya, which is my current favorite!  My favorite treat right now is the chocolate-covered almonds from Trader Joe's. I am a 'phase' person and I go through phases when I get stuck on a food and enjoy it until I get sick of it. And right now I am stuck on those!"


Regular Therapy

Garth has regular therapy sessions to help support her mental health. "I've been in therapy since I was in my early 20s," she says. "I've learned so much about myself and how to take care of myself. When you do have mental issues, whatever they are, you really do feel like you're alone. You feel like nobody else thinks the way you think, or has the struggles you have. But we all have the same struggles."
