Scrubs Star Eliza Coupe in Workout Gear Shares Summer Photos

She wore a pink swimsuit.

Eliza Coupe is a very successful actress. She's known for her roles on the TV Shows Happy Endings, Scrubs, So Help Me Todd, Future Man, and Quantico. Last summer, Coupe shared some highlights on Instagram. In one, she enjoyed a hike with her dog. In another, she wore a pink swimsuit. Coupe captioned the post, "Summer blaaa blaaaaa blaaaaaaaaa." How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Eliza Coupe stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Eats Blueberries


Coupe shared some of her favorite foods in an interview with Bon Appetit. She says that she loves to eat blueberries. "I'll eat three huge bowls of blueberries a day, just because I love them and it's very hard for me to find a quantity of food that I can digest. You feel like a million bucks eating fruit, and blueberries are good for your telomeres, your aging barometer. The moment you're born they start shrinking, and blueberries increase them. I have had more people tell me that I look younger. I'm f—king Benjamin Button on blueberries."


She Eats Mostly Vegan


Coupe opened up about her mostly vegan diet in her Observer interview. "I have a plant-based diet. I don't eat meat or any dairy." Harvard Health states that limiting meat and animal products has a lot of benefits. "Vegetarian diets have also been shown to support health, including a lower risk of developing coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and increased longevity. Plant-based diets offer all the necessary protein, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals for optimal health, and are often higher in fiber and phytonutrients."


She Takes Care Of Her Mental Health

In her Bon Appetit interview, Coupe opened up about her mental health and how she takes care of it. "I'm in such a high-stress job where women have to wear tight dresses all the time, and if I eat something that messes me up, I'll be so cripplingly uncomfortable that I can't go 12 more hours of shooting without freaking out," she said. "Worrying about it makes it worse, because I am an incredibly anxious person. When I was 23, I cut all sugar out of my diet, quit drinking, and found yoga and breathing and stretching. That's the best Ritalin you could give anyone."


She Works With A Personal Trainer

In an interview with Observer, Coupe shared some of her go-to workouts. She says that she works with a personal trainer. "As far as my workouts go, I do the Tracy Anderson method in Brentwood with a private trainer. I pay way too much money, but whatever." ACE Fitness reports that working with a trainer can help motivate you. "Most of us work harder in the presence of others. Having a trainer by your side can provide the encouragement, energy and motivation you need to jumpstart your routine. A trainer can also help you set goals, create a plan to accomplish them and celebrate the day you reach them."


She Hikes

Coupe loves to go on hikes, and she's lucky to live in an area where she can easily go for them. "My husband and I live on 50 acres up in the mountains of Malibu, like right in the middle of nowhere," she said to Observer. "We go for hikes and I put up way too many Instagram stories. Last night, my best friend texts me and was like, 'woah, girl. You went deep.' You know how the little dashes get really small? I was bored! I don't know. But it's videos of me running around our property with our dog."
