She Avoids Diets


Samia tries to avoid a certain word. "I don't even like the word diet. I just try to eat healthily," she tells Express. She fills her diet with nourishing food and drink, like smoothies. "I like fruity ones," she said, adding that her husband, Sylvain Longchambon "will do one with oats, soya milk, dried berries, nuts and seeds."


She Exercises

Samia sweats on a regular basis. "I should go to the gym more and the fact that Sylvain is a personal trainer… well, it's ridiculous I don't utilise him more. I do planks and squats if I can't find time for anything else. I just want to stay toned," she tells Express. 


She Walks and Bikes

Samia loves outdoor exercises. "January is so meh 😑 isn't it? It's my least favourite month and when we all probably need an extra bit of motivation to get outside," she says in a recent Instagram post. "Apart from my daily walks with my dog, my other favourite way to get fresh air is on my bike (best lockdown purchase ever!).. I always feel like a kid again on our family bike rides and as long as I am wrapped up in @acaioutdoorwear no boring grey sky is gonna stop me!"

Samia explained to Good To that they "eat quite healthily as a family – but we're not 'boring healthy'. We have takeouts, we love a good pizza, but as a rule we eat well and watch the sugar intake and stuff. We don't eat much red meat and if I do buy it, I try to buy organic and free range," she said. 


She Hydrates

Samia makes hydration a priority. According to the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine men should drink about 15.5 cups (3.7 liters) of fluids a day and women about 11.5 cups (2.7 liters) of fluids.


She Does Yoga

Samia does yoga regularly. "His n Hers headstands," she writes one Instagram about this set of photos of herself and her husband practicing. There is a laundry list of reasons to do yoga, explains Harvard Health. "Researchers found that people who practiced yoga for at least 30 minutes once a week for at least four years, gained less weight during middle adulthood," they said. "People who were overweight actually lost weight. Overall, those who practiced yoga had lower body mass indexes (BMIs) compared with those who did not practice yoga. Researchers attributed this to mindfulness. Mindful eating can lead to a more positive relationship with food and eating." 


She Treats Her Anxiety

Samia has been dealing with anxiety since she was a kid. "Obviously I went to the doctors when I was 11 with it. I've never spoken about it before but I have had different forms of therapy over the years," she told The Mirror in 2019. It got so bad in 2013, while she was competing on Dancing on Ice, her anxiety was so crippling she couldn't eat. "My first week of Dancing on Ice, I weighed just under seven stone. I couldn't eat anything," she said on a podcast. "Sylvain was giving me doughnuts for a bit of sugar because my anxiety was so bad."
