After having a benign brain tumor removed, Maria knows what's up about health. "Pro-tip: try to schedule all of your appointments in the same month," she wrote on an Instagram post of herself at her doctor's office. "Get your dentist, gynecologist, skin check and any doctor's appointments all done at once – this way you can always remember. October for example is when I handle the health biz. I try to set back-to-back appointments and knock out as many as I can at once. Try your best to have a rhythm so you never forget! It's helped me! Good luck."
The Southern Charm star once did a 30 day cleanse "Day one. No alcohol, no carbs, no sugar. 29 days to go," she captioned a photo of herself in the gym. Good call. Says the Mayo Clinic: "Eating too many foods with added sugars sets the stage for potential health problems, such as:
- Poor nutrition. If you choose sugar-laden foods instead of more nutritious foods, you miss out on important nutrients, vitamins and minerals.
- Weight gain. There's no single cause for being overweight or obese. But added sugar might contribute to the problem. It's easy to get extra calories when eating foods that are sugar sweetened."
Elsa meditates. "Once the kids are asleep, I try to meditate for 10 to 15 minutes, and I make sure I read and unwind before going to bed. At home we always try to put our phones aside just after dinner and we don't check them before bedtime, so we properly disconnect from the world for few hours," said Pataky to Harper's Bazaar.
Teresa knows how to eat right. "Starting my day with veggie packed egg white omelette and fresh fruit!" she once wrote. "Always look for a veggie heavy meal on the menu when dining out. You'll feel satisfied longer & full quicker!"
Graham avoids sugar. "I do eat sugar sometimes, but as a broad rule, I try to just eat no sugar basically, and I have to say I feel a lot better," she said. "And I will sometimes eat things with white flour, but I try to avoid white flour." Always go for whole grains instead. "If you're not sure something has whole grains, check the product label or the Nutrition Facts panel. Look for the word 'whole' on the package, and make sure whole grains appear among the first items in the ingredient list," says the Mayo Clinic.
Cabello supports mental health for all. "I've spent a lot of time over the last couple of years, and especially this past year home during the pandemic, in constant reflection, learning and exploring the ways I have contributed to systems and beliefs that actively oppress others," Cabello tells The Hollywood Reporter. "I've realized there's so much more I can and must do to support others who are doing the work to heal our communities…. Grassroots organizers are faced with the exhaustion, emotional burden and trauma that comes with fighting against inequitable systems. Our hope is to offer access to the necessary support they may need as they continue their critical work advocating for social justice."
Want to burn calories and build muscles? Do a stair workout, like Flores, the 90 Day Fiancé star. "After a long vacation full of amazing Mexican food and lots of drinks it's time to get back to my routine and detox 🌱lots of cardio needed and there are mods options than you think. Take this Stair Climber workout for example, I did a variety of movements on just one machine only 30 minutes. I was able to pass the time easily. It's great for cardio," she once wrote. "You will feel the burn in your quads when you squat and climb."
