She Doesn't Diet

Molly refuses to go on a diet. Instead, she makes smart lifestyle choices. "It's more about living healthy and how you're feeling," she explained to Women's Health. "I truly, truly don't like the word 'diet.' I don't even like the scale. I use a pair of jeans; the jeans don't lie I can tell you that."


She Does HIIT Workouts

Molly noticed a big change when she started using weights and doing HIIT workouts. "I used to be that girl who wouldn't pick up the 2-lb weights at SoulCycle with the fear that I'd bulk. That mentality has shifted drastically," she revealed on her blog. She revealed in a video for Women's Health that she exercises at 6:30 am, after meditating for a few minutes outside with a cup of coffee. 


This High-Fat Superfood Keeps Her Fueled Up


"I would have never eaten an avocado 10 years ago if you paid me," she revealed to Health. "Like, are you joking? But now, instead of binging [and] not eating all day, eat it and then you won't binge."

"On good days, workout. On bad days, workout harder," she captioned an Instagram video, revealing her go-to short and intense workout. "Today's circuit is what I do when I just have 20 minutes with @lauralizkeller [Sims' personal trainer] to get it in and still break a sweat!" The workout involves 45 seconds intervals of the following, with the entire set repeated two to three times: jumping jacks, modified pushups, tricep dips, squat jumps, leg raises, burpees, and lateral bend and hold—all while using ankle and wrist weights the entire time.


She Does Intermittent Fasting

Molly is one of the many celebrities who are into intermittent fasting. She eats her first meal, usually a smoothie with blueberries, almond milk, Vital Proteins protein, and greens, at noon. And, she tries to stop eating by 7 p.m. 


She Avoids Sugar

Molly chooses to load up on mostly veggies, lean proteins, and fruits, but avoids anything with a lot of sugar. "I tend to stay away from anything super sugary, like orange juice grapefruit juice, because it really spikes me," she told Women's Health. "I try to stay away from dried fruits; it's ultimately full of sugar."


She Keeps Gluten to a Minimum

While she doesn't maintain a gluten-free diet, she does try and avoid it. "I try to cut out as much gluten as I can," she explains. "It's not that I'm celiac; I just feel better when I have less of it,"she explained to Women's Health.
