Ariana Has No Time For Haters
Ariana has no time for haters, especially when they are talking about her body. When someone accused her of having an eating disorder, Ariana hit back on her Instagram story. "I do not have an eating disorder. I worked my a** off to get to where I am today. I am not sick. This is ridiculous and awful to say to someone. Stop commenting on people's bodies and worry about yourself."
Kim Eats Healthy
Kim makes healthy eating a priority. She revealed her diet on her Instagram story. "No pork, no beef, sometimes chicken, pasta, chocolate, veggies and wine." "It's never too late to become healthier, and an important part of getting there is to eat healthier. Did you know that by eating a rainbow of colors of fruits and vegetables you can protect your health against such diseases as cancer, heart disease, diabetes and even poor eyesight? The different colors of fruits and vegetables provide you with powerful antioxidants that can boost your immune system and provide protection," says the Mayo Clinic.
Kim Likes To Run
Kim revealed some of her wellness secrets in this Instagram post. She wrote that one of her favorite ways to workout is by running. "I run three to four miles five times a week. I have ALWAYS loved to run." Dr. Carlos Uquillas, an orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in injury prevention at the Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Institute, notes that running:
- "Increases endorphin levels – Endorphins are your brain's natural feel-good chemicals, which boost metabolism and provide a positive sense of wellbeing often referred to as a "runner's high."
- Enhances sleep – Better sleep improves metabolism, organ function, and physical and mental energy.
- Lowers risk of depression – Depression is one of the most common mental health conditions and it can make other illnesses worse."
Kim Lives An Active Life
In her Instagram post, Kim revealed that she lives an active life. She says that this lifestyle helps her stay in shape. "From the time I get up, to the time I go to bed, I rarely sit down," she writes. "I don't do elevators, I'd rather walk 30 flights." "You don't need expensive gym equipment to get a good workout. Research shows that stair-climbing helps strengthen and tone your leg muscles. It keeps your leg arteries flexible, allowing blood to move more easily. Better blood flow in your legs equals a healthier heart and body," says the Mayo Clinic.
Kim Takes Care Of Her Anemia
Kim is open about her struggles with her health. She has had heart problems and anemia. She revealed in her Instagram post how she treats her anemia. "I'm anemic and get iron IVs for it often," she explains. "Anemia is a condition in which you lack enough healthy red blood cells to carry adequate oxygen to your body's tissues. Having anemia, also referred to as low hemoglobin, can make you feel tired and weak," says the Mayo Clinic. "There are many forms of anemia, each with its own cause. Anemia can be temporary or long term and can range from mild to severe. In most cases, anemia has more than one cause. See your doctor if you suspect that you have anemia. It can be a warning sign of serious illness."
