SZA Shares Swimsuit Photo as "Vibes Were Positive"
SZA is heating up social media in her swimsuit. In one of her latest social media posts, the chart-topping singer shows off her incredible curves in a tiny bathing suit, wowing her followers. "Today was random but the vibes were positive . All u can ask for," she captioned the series of Instagram snaps. "sza ur one of the prettiest girls i've ever seen like im speechless," commented one of her millions of followers. "Damn. Lemme go do some sit ups," added another about her impressive abs. How does the Kill Bill singer maintain her awe-inspiring physique? Here are the 5 things she does.
She Avoids Dairy, Wheat, and Sugar
SZA's diet is extremely healthy. "[I] really don't know a name for it lmao," she responded to a fan asking about her diet on Twitter. "No red meat (mostly fish), no dairy, no wheat no sugar…high veggie…complex carbs only (squash, avocado, sweet potato etc.), hella water [dassit]," she added in the tweet.
She Works Out. A Lot.
SZA claims that she works out for an hour and fifteen minutes – sometimes two – every day. To get her sweat on she says that she needs a "green tea" along with a "hittin'" playlist.
She Struggled with Her Weight When She Was younger
"I've consistently been dressing in baggy clothes because I was heavy. I was 200 pounds, but that's not really public knowledge. I was a lot bigger, so wearing baggy clothes [was] not so much as a '90s thing, it was what was comfortable and what fit," she told Coveteur. "When I lost weight I didn't want to wear baggy clothes anymore. I worked really hard not to have to wear baggy clothes. And now I just feel like it's how I'm generally comfortable. Instead of doing just what was available, I can wear what I want, and that's a blessing."
SZA is all about walking and enjoys getting outside. "I hit the forest, or I hit the park, or I do a lot of walks, a lot of exercises," she told Billboard. Going for a daily walk can be a game changer in terms of exercise, especially at a brisk speed. One study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that walking at a brisk pace for about 30 minutes a day led to a reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, dementia and death, compared with walking a similar number of steps but at a slower pace.
"Sitting still and meditating is a component for me, but it's not my key component. I need to be outside amongst trees, and among anything nature-based. I'll drive really far to get there and I don't mind." "When you meditate, you may clear away the information overload that builds up every day and contributes to your stress," says the Mayo Clinic.
