She Prioritizes Sleep

With the help of Brunelli, who is a personal trainer, Matha discovered that short daily workouts keep the weight off. "30 minutes a day of exercise and 10,000 steps," she told NowToLove. "The minimum recommendation for aerobic exercise is 150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise or 75 minutes per week of vigorous exercise (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2018)," says ACE Fitness.


She Does Pilates

Kalifatidis told that she chooses exercises that help challenge her body. One of her favorites? Pilates. "To challenge myself even more, I've now added pilates to the mix to work on my core and posture, or lack thereof." "Exercises of Pilates method have been widely used to improve postural alignment. There is strong evidence favoring their use in improving flexibility and balance, as well as some evidence of improvement in muscle strength," says one study.


She Shifted Her Mindset

Kalifatidis explained to that she had to make a lot of mental changes to her lifestyle and shift her mindset. "If you feel helpless or you're the least fit you've ever been in your life, it's ok. Shift your mindset. Instead of looking to punish yourself, look to nourish and better yourself. Instead of thinking of it as just a salad, think of it as a favor to your body," she said. 


She Doesn't Do Keto

In an interview with body+soul Martha revealed that she was once a keto "extremist," but the restrictive diet didn't work for her. "Hands down the keto diet is the worst diet I've ever tried. I am, correction, I was an extremist, she said. "Sure I leaned out, but I was miserable, severely constipated and couldn't sleep. Take my carbs but don't f%*k with my beauty sleep!"


She Also Avoids Fad Diets

You won't find Martha on any other trendy diets. "Fad dieting is wrong for so many reasons. Firstly, it's impossible to stick to so you're forever beating yourself up, it makes you miserable and antisocial. Above all, they never actually work and they can have detrimental long lasting effects on your body. You might be dehydrated for a week or two, which will fool you into thinking you've lost weight but that's about it," she told body+soul. 


Her Diet Is Healthy


As for her eating, Martha revealed to body+soul that she focuses on "cutting out processed foods and eating more veggies," eating "heaps of salads and soups" and making healthier food choices when dining out. "I'll have a burger but won't get fries – instead, I'll steal a few from Michael and that will satisfy me."
