Outer Banks Star Madelyn Cline Shares Swimsuit Photo From the Maldives

This is her no-diet diet.

Outer Banks Star Madelyn Cline went on a magical trip to the Maldives, and the highlights she posted on social media are envy-inspiring. Cline, who plays Sarah Cameron on the show, shared pictures and video of herself dancing on a beautiful beach in a red swimsuit, and enjoying a swing right out on the water. "Magic," she captioned the post. Here's what Cameron's lifestyle and wellness look like.


Typical Diet


Cline's diet depends on whether she's working or not, and how hungry she is. "Sometimes I'll wake up really hungry," she says. "I'll do a breakfast sandwich, oatmeal, [or] maybe a smoothie. I usually wake up pretty thirsty, so I'll probably chug some water. On some days, In-N-Out. My order is a double-double with everything on it, plus chopped chillies, with an animal-style fry, and a Diet Coke. Usually I'll forget about lunch until I get hungry, which is probably maybe like 4pm. I'll realize I haven't eaten, then I will probably Postmates something, a sandwich of some type. Usually I'll get a tuna melt – it's been a big thing recently."


Veggies and Hummus


Cline's dinner is usually soup or something else light. "If I'm going to snack, especially on-set, I'm probably going to go with Hot Cheetos, salt and vinegar chips, or those snap pea crisps," she says. "[I also like] good old vegetables and hummus, [they're] also delicious. For dinner, because usually I wait to eat lunch later, I will probably do something just a little lighter. I love soup: chicken tortilla soup, I love a good green soup, lemon orzo soup is really yummy. I like Matzah ball soup, [and] potato and leek soup. The possibilities are endless here."


Skin Breakouts

Cline is philosophical about the occasional breakout. "I focus on the active ingredients in a product," she says. "For cleansing, the active ingredient that has been most effective for me is benzoyl peroxide. For pigmentation and anti-aging, I look for hyaluronic acid and vitamin C, and for dryness, I look for vitamin E." "It's obviously never fun to have stubborn acne onscreen — especially on Outer Banks when I'm wearing heavy makeup for 12 hours every day in 100 percent humidity. But at the end of the day, everybody gets pimples. Breakouts don't diminish your beauty, baby."


Charcuterie Board


Cline is a big fan of a really well-made cheese board. "Sometimes I really love to just make a charcuterie board, basically just an adult 'Lunchable'. My perfect board would be brie or brie-adjacent cheese," she says. "I love to have a little bit of salami, prosciutto, and definitely crackers. I love to have some fruit on there, like grapes. I love to have a fig jam or a cherry jam, and some veggies. I'm not a major dessert person, but every once in a while, I'll get a craving for dessert. There's a bakery nearby, and I really love these little mini rum baba cakes, like these sponge cakes soaked in rum, and there's just a little bit of cream filling. They're so yummy, and they're tiny and just enough. That's all I need. I also love tiramisu."


Confidence From Mom

Cline struggled with eating disorders when she was a child, sometimes working out too much without eating properly. "My mom was a wonderful help in that," she says. "She would stand there in the mirror with me and we would list out things that I liked about my body. After that repetition those things became solidified in my mind. I like my curves, I like my hips, and after a while I started to love my body. I became so much happier."
