Fitness Helped Her Overcome an
Torri explained to Muscle & Health that after getting into modeling at a young age, it sparked an eating disorder. "I was told to lose five or ten pounds and became anorexic and lost much weight. The anorexia started to morph into bulimia, but I found it hard to throw myself up," she said. "Because of the bulimia, I started gaining weight, and that's what forced me into fitness and trying to build muscle. I realized I might not want to look like a super thin model. The curvy athletic body is just beautiful."

She Works Out Daily
Torrie, who offers a six-week program to help women reach their fitness goals, works out daily. "It's pretty immersive, I do a video every day, so participants feel like it's more intimate," she said. "I wouldn't say it takes a lot of work to build muscle." She also has a no pain, no gain mentality. "I know if I'm going to do something like weighted glute raises or deadlifts, it will hurt for a few days, but it also hurts when I don't do anything, so I choose which hurt I want."
She Follows the 80/20 Rule
Torri is all about the 80/20 method of eating. "I go for the 80% rule of healthy. I'm now more focused on eating whole, natural foods that have a lot of nutrients to help me feel good from the inside out. I'm anti-strict eating because of competing and being anorexic," she said.
She Prioritizes Exercise Over Diet
"If I had to choose between exercise and diet, the exercise would be my number one. You can have a little more leeway with your diet by having muscle. When it comes to being lean, that's always been my motto," she said.
She Gets a Lot of Sleep
What is her secret to looking forever young? According to Torrie, "exercise, getting enough sleep and probably not having kids," she said. "I'm not afraid of Botox and skin peels. People might say that's self-absorbed, but it makes me feel better, like having hair extensions and not being pasty white. Those are the little tweaks that make me feel better mentally. The world sometimes sends mixed messages, like there's a fine line between being too overly self-absorbed, but I think I have a good balance."
