Her Diet Is All About Moderation

"​​I eat what I want, in moderation," Lara told Parade about her dietary approach. "I gravitate toward fresh veggies and clean foods, thankfully, but I am also a sucker for a cupcake every once in a while. I make sure to eat lots of kale, broccoli, blueberries, strawberries and spinach. We do enough stories on superfoods on GMA. I know what I should be eating, and I really try to stick with that."

When she isn't working, you can find Lara in the pool. "I enjoy swimming laps—it's a great workout and also allows me to get into a meditative state so it's very relaxing. I love the quiet and the rhythm of swimming. I do it quite a bit in the summer, but not very much in the winter," she told Parade. 


She Does Yoga

Lara is a devoted yogi. "I turn to yoga, preferably in a warm room, during the cold months. I do yoga year round but find myself craving it more in the fall and winter," she told Parade.


She Paddle Boards

Lara is also "really into" paddle boarding. "It's an incredible workout for the arms and core, and a great way to get out on the water," she told Parade.


She Plays Tennis

"Last but certainly not least, I play tennis year round," Lara told Parade. "As a former athlete, I love the competition. I play both singles and doubles and would play every day if I could! I wish I had known about tennis as a kid. Unlike platform diving, it's a sport I can play for the rest of my life."


She Is a Breakfast Person

With her early schedule, you won't find Lara doing intermittent fasting. She revealed to Shape that she starts her day with cereal and coffee.
