One Piece Star Celeste Loots Shares Swimsuit Photo as "The Pirates Are Coming"
One Piece star Celeste Loots is making some tongue-in-cheek references to the pirate show on her social media. Loots, who plays Kaya on the live-action adaptation of the popular manga, shared a very moody picture of herself wearing a light swimsuit while posing on a chair, looking out of a dark window. "Staring out the window because I've heard the pirates are coming 👀," she captioned the post. Here's how the actress takes care of herself.
Loots loves to hike with her friends, especially at home in Cape Town, South Africa. "Like all forms of exercise, hiking is one of the best ways to lose weight and is a method of stabilizing cholesterol levels," according to the American Hiking Society. "On average, you burn 100 calories for every mile you walk. Another way to look at it is in terms of how quickly you are walking. You burn about 200 to 250 calories per hour if you're walking at a rate of 2.5 miles an hour."
She Plays Guitar
Loots plays the guitar, which not only has therapeutic benefits, but is good for brain health too. "Picked up my guitar for the first time in months, and although we're a little rusty I had to play my all time favorite Figures by Jessie Reyez (with brief backing vocals by one of my cats," she captioned an Instagram video of herself playing.
Loots loves her pet cats, who feature frequently on her social media. "[Animals are] so much more than pets," says Molly Gross, CCLS, certified child life specialist and facility dog handler. "They become like a member of your family. The term 'pet' doesn't encompass the meaning and the impact they have. Animals are part of the family and become your companion," Gross notes. "But animals can help you be social, and feel less alone or isolated when you're at home."
Loots enjoys the mental and physical benefits of swimming sessions. "As cardiovascular exercises go, swimming offers a little less wear and tear on the body than other options," says exercise physiologist Christopher Travers, MS. "It's a good choice for just about anyone… The buoyancy of the water takes the weight off [your joints]. It also adds resistance, but it's low impact."
Loots enjoys the occasional orange juice for a healthy snack. "Citrus fruits are notably rich in vitamin C," says registered dietitian Anna Nekrich. "This vitamin is needed to form and maintain healthy skin, bones, blood vessels and connective tissues. Vitamin C plays an important role in supporting the immune system and also acts as an antioxidant that might help protect your cells against the effects of free radicals and fight inflammation."
