Pia Wurtzbach Shares Swimsuit Photo From the Maldives
Pia Wurtzbach is heating up the Maldives in her swimsuit. In a recent social media post the model and actress shows off her amazing body in a red hot bathing suit while frolicking on the beach with her husband, Jeremy Jauncey. "I wanna be with you everywhere," she captioned the series of Instagram snaps, driving her followers wild. "Hottest in the universe," commented one, while another added, "stunning." How does the 34-year-old approach health and fitness? Celebwell rounded up her top lifestyle habits.
Home Cooked Meals
Pia keeps her diet healthy by cooking her own meals most of the time. "I have a busy schedule and am constantly traveling so when I do have the time to grocery shop or prepare a meal, I make it a priority," she told People. "However, I love sushi so I find myself eating out often for that!"
Like many fit folks, Pia focuses on adding "lots of protein" to her meals. "I like to enjoy foods that keep my energy levels stable," Wurtzbach told People. "Otherwise I'd likely crash at some point during the day." "Muscles love protein, especially complete proteins like whey," says the Cleveland Clinic. "Whey protein contains branched-chain amino acids, a specific type of amino acid that helps with muscle building," registered dietitian Maxine Smith, RD, LD tells the Clinic.
Pia told People that she drinks at least 8 glasses of water per day. According to the Mayo Clinic, hydration is important for a variety of reasons. Water helps get rid of waste through urination, perspiration, and bowel movements, keeps your temperature normal, lubricates and cushions joints, and helps protect sensitive tissues.
This Is What She Eats in a Day
Pia dished to People that she consumes 1,758 calories per day, starting with a breakfast of a cup of coffee with a splash of cream and 1 1⁄2 cups of Greek yogurt with 3 diced strawberries, a handful of blueberries, a tbsp. of honey and mangoes. For lunch, she will eat a grilled-chicken Caesar salad – "light on the croutons" – with diced cherry tomatoes, 2 tbsp. of dressing and ⅓ cup of low-fat Parmesan cheese. She might nibble on a snack of two handfuls of roasted almonds (no salt) and dried mango with a side of cottage cheese. For dinner she enjoys oven-roasted salmon (with ½ tbsp. of olive oil to coat fillet), 1 cup of spinach topped with feta, 1 cup of steamed broccoli with fresh lemon juice, olive oil and garlic, and 2 red bliss potatoes, sliced, with olive oil and fresh rosemary.
Planks, Tricep Pulldowns, and Squats
Pia's personal trainer, Mark Banta of Anytime Fitness, maintains that she "swears" by three moves. "The plank is one of the best exercises for a flat, toned stomach because it works all the muscles in your core, including the rectus abdominis or the 'six-pack muscles' you can see. We made sure to do this because we're really preparing for the swimsuit competition," he told Candy. For her arms she does a tricep pulldown and to keep her legs in shape, squats and lunges.
Pia relies on carbs before her workouts and proteins after. "When it comes to gearing up before your workout, carbs should be number one on your list. Always take them an hour before you start exercising," Banta told Candy. "After workout, we always consume a post workout drink (protein shake), boiled eggs, and chicken breast. Carbs are meant to be your energy source and protein is for faster muscle recovery and repair."
