Maggie Q in Bathing Suit Jumps Into the Cold Pool
Maggie Q is cold plunging in her swimsuit. In one of her latest social media posts, the Pivoting star shows off her bombshell body in a bathing suit. "Longevity is the name of the game!" she wrote in the caption of the Instagram video, jumping into a cold barrel of water. How does the 44-year-old look half her age? Read on to see 8 ways Maggie Q stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.
She Eats Metabolism-Boosting Food
Maggie eats food that boosts her metabolism. "I've raised my metabolism by being an active person, so I need more food than most people. But people tell me that I don't eat actual food. Like, how do you think I function? I don't put anything into my body but the air that I breathe? I can't tell you the number of people who've said I need to eat a cheeseburger. I'm like, really? I need to eat a cheeseburger? You can eat a cheeseburger and I'll be okay over here," she told Women's Health.
She Follows a Plant-Based Diet
"I don't [call myself vegan], because it has become a weird, negative term and people feel very judged by it," Maggie told The Beet. "So I like plant-based better because it's friendlier: It's inclusive. You can't judge people. They have to be where they're at, and you have to accept them for where they are."
She Emphasizes Gut Health
"I have always struggled with gut health," Maggie told Thrive magazine. "Whatever brought that on, I couldn't say, but breaking down foods has been a challenge for me even before I knew what that challenge was." Maggie recently launched her own supplement line, ActivatedYou. "I wanted to create a line of probiotics that had everything I was looking for. In my journey to improve my own health, I became extremely passionate about helping others out of the hole I was in."
Maggie is a fan of Jason Walsh's Rise Nation method, Katonah Yoga, and hikes with her dogs when it comes to exercise. "My rescue dogs are my life and hiking with them is probably my favorite form of exercise," she wrote on Qeep Up's site. "We can go for hours and nothing makes them—or me—happier!"
She Drinks Her Nutrients
Maggie gets her nutrients in by consuming plant-based drinks, shots or bowls. She might take her shot of wheatgrass, turmeric, ginger, and lemon, sip on a blended green juice or a smoothie, or feast on an acai bowl, she revealed to Veg News. She also takes green shots. "Wheatgrass. There is nothing like it," she told Thrive about her shot of choice.
