Tate McRae is celebrating her birthday – in her swimsuit. The singer shows off her amazing body in a bathing suit on her special day in one of her latest social media posts, marking the end of her teen. "She's 20!!!!" she captioned the post. How does the young star stay both physically and mentally healthy? Read on to see 5 ways Tate McRae stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.
Tate, who partnered with Essentia water, makes sure to drink lots of H2O. She captioned a recent post, "u alr know @essentiawater keeping me hydrated at photo shoots." 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.
"I love to dance. I've been dancing all my life," Tate told Refinery 29. "I started dancing around the age of 6. It began as a hobby that I was definitely not seriously interested in. I loved performing, but hated when I actually had to do what I was told," she added to Everly. "I only started getting serious when my mom took me to New York at age 8. I was extremely inspired and motivated! It gave me something to work toward and was the moment when I realized I wanted to dance for the rest of my life. From then on, I have been training nonstop and am always pushing myself to my greatest potential." Now, she also dances for fitness. "Sometimes i reminisce on my ballet days," she captioned a recent Instagram post.
She Has Struggled with Body Image Issues
"I used to go to ballet schools in Germany and they would take measurements of every single part of my body at age nine. At the time, I didn't even realize how much that was messing with me mentally, but I was already thinking about my body image," she told Fashion. "No one should be thinking about their body in that kind of way at a young age," she continued. "Even though I'm starting to convince myself to love myself, there are a lot of things that dance has brought me that make navigating fashion so much harder. Because when you feel like you don't know what you look like, it can be hard to take risks."
She Tries to Accept Herself
"As a public figure, it's hard because you're putting yourself out there for people to judge you. I'm growing up and my body's changing every single day. And while I'm just trying to accept my own body, so are millions of other people on the internet," she told Fashion.
"I don't usually watch a lot of TV, but when I do, I'm obsessed with cooking shows. My favorite food [is] Brussels sprouts or dark chocolate," she told Fashion. She added to Refinery 29 that she has one go-to comfort food: Toast.
