Scheana Shay Shares Special Swimsuit Selfie
Vanderpump Rules star Scheana Shay is back in front of the cameras for season 11 of the hit Bravo reality show—and fielding questions about her relationship with Tom Sandoval, who was spotted filming with the cast at Lake Tahoe. Shay, 38, shared a selfie where she's wearing a green one-piece swimsuit, posing on a boat with a drink. How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Shay stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.
Healthy Home Cooking
Shay and husband Brock enjoy cooking healthy meals at home. "Pre baby, I wasn't on a strict schedule," she says. "Now I'm on Summer's schedule, which has forced me to get into a healthier routine with my eating habits, workouts and overall health. The majority of the week, Brock and I like to cook a healthy lunch at home. Whether we make chicken or salmon, we always make sure to have a green side and a healthy carb or two."
Weight Training and Cardio
Shay does full-body workouts several times a week, and stays active in general by walking as much as she can. "At least 3 times a week, I make sure to go down to the gym and get a full workout in including weight training, EMS (electrical muscle stimulation) and cardio," she says. "Rather than always walking on a treadmill in the gym, I like to get my cardio in by taking Summer for walks around town."
Carb-Cycling With Trainer
Shay worked with trainer Seth Browning to overhaul her diet and introduce carb-cycling. "When we first started I was doing three days of no carbs and one day of healthy carbs—and that helped kick my body into shape," she says. Her go-to dinner on a low-carb day is usually "Salmon with lots of grilled vegetables" and she drinks plenty of water.
Shay loves staying hydrated with delicious coconut water. "Some people drink coconut water for its electrolytes," says Katherine Zeratsky, RD, LD. "Those are charged minerals that help you stay hydrated. The body loses water and electrolytes from sweating during exercise or hard work and from illnesses such as diarrhea. Electrolytes in coconut water include potassium, sodium and manganese. The amounts vary by brand."
Shay says she uses scalp foundation to help cover up postpartum hair loss. "I feel so confident in my hair game again," she says. "If you watch the show, you know I have a good side and I have a bad side… my hairline typically goes back further on the right side. So that's just always bothered me. People can relate to things we're going through, real human experiences: postpartum, hair loss, everything in between."
