She Drinks Hot Water with Lemon in the Morning
Nadia, like so many celebrities, starts her day off with a simple drink. "I always have a big glass of water with lemon as soon as I wake up," she told Women's Health. "Drink before feeling thirsty. By the time you feel thirsty, you are already behind in fluid replacement. Dehydration is a primary contributor to heat exhaustion," says the CDC. "Water will almost always maintain hydration during work in the heat, as long as you eat regular meals to replace salt lost in sweat." Lemon is a great way to flavor water, and much better than energy drinks, for example. "Many energy drinks contain as much or more sugar as soft drinks, which adds hundreds of extra calories to your diet."
Her Diet Is Clean
Nadia is a pescatarian, avoiding all meat and poultry. "My diet is very Mediterranean due to my Italian background so I love nuts, olive oil, avocado etc (so good for our skin too). I also try to add a little protein at most meal times," she revealed during a 2021 Instagram Q&A session. She revealed to Women's Health exactly what she eats in a day: For breakfast she has a two-egg omelet with tomato, cottage cheese, avocado and chili spread. "I love a bit of spice (even in the morning)" she told Women's Health. She snacks on Greek yogurt. Almonds, crackers with dip or cheese. For lunch she will eat a rice Salad with tuna, jalapeños, rice, kimchi, cucumber and beans, and for dinner, roast veggies, spinach, salmon with ginger and lemon.
Nadia prioritizes exercise, but doesn't sweat on a daily basis. "On a good week, I try to fit in 2 x 'one on one' Pilates sessions with my teacher and 1 x resistance training. I also try to fit in at least one long (and fast paced) walk with the boys," she told Women's Health.
What is the most crucial wellness advice she has learned? "The importance of meditation," she told Women's Health. "It is so important to remove negative thoughts, stress, worries and anxiety. It has been such a huge difference to my mental health and wellbeing once I started doing it regularly. It can be hard to start, but there are so many apps around like Calm or Headspace which can help."
She Doesn't Count Calories
In the Q&A session, Nadia revealed that she doesn't do diets. "I have never calorie counted. I like food too much and I believe in a little of everything in moderation,' she wrote. 'I have always had this approach with food and I think that's why I don't binge too much, as I don't deprive myself of certain foods." Instead, she focuses on eating healthy 80 percent of the time.
She Does Intermittent Fasting
Nadia is one of the many stars who eats with a time-based meal restriction. "I started intermediate fasting during Covid and felt really good, I would have my last meal at 7.30pm and eat again at 11.30am," she revealed during her Q&A. "It was hard initially as I was a big breakfast eater so I was starved. But I suffer from a few stomach issues and it helped with my bloating etc and general energy levels. I have eased off a bit the last few months but keen to start it again."
