Suki Waterhouse in Two-Piece Workout Gear Shows Postpartum Body

Here is everything you need to know about her approach to health

Suki Waterhouse is getting real about her postpartum journey. In a new social media post the Daisy Jones and the Six star shows off her "fourth trimester" body, opening up about the changes she has gone through. "The fourth trimester has been… humbling! the postpartum period has been filled with exhilarating joy, so much laughter, tears, soo many hormones! I'm proud of everything my body has achieved and proud of the kindness and grace I've given myself during this recovery period," she wrote in the Instagram post. How does the actress tackle diet and fitness? Here is everything you need to know about her approach to health.


Physique 57

When it comes to fitness, Suki mixes things up. "Yes I work out," she told Harper's Bazaar. "What I do really depends where I am. I'm really not good at running but I do love boxing. I also really enjoy this Barre class in LA called Physique Fitness 57, but you can definitely get the same kind of thing here in London."


Low Intensity and "Vigorous Exercise"

"I do really like vigorous exercise and being put through a bit of hell, but I actually don't agree that you should do too much tough exercise if you want to keep trim. Sometimes I get so into it and I just end up being really hungry, then I eat so much more and the result is that I become really quite muscly," Suki added. 


Eating Carbs Without Protein


Suki eats both carbs and protein – just not together. "I really live by something I read in this book from the '80s which I skimmed over years ago called 'Fit for Life' – it's very old school, but it basically says that you should never eat carbs and protein together," Suki told Harper's Bazaar. "It is so difficult for your body to break them down at the same time, so just have carbs with vegetables or meat with vegetables instead. It means I can have a load of mashed potato, but then I just won't eat any meat with it or vice versa. I think a lot of feeling bloated or not feeling your best self is all to do with digestion and this tip has really helped me."




"I do Vinyasa yoga," Suki told Get the Gloss. "I also go to TriYoga and hot yoga (not Bikram) and I do occasional Pilates, which I should do more of." 




Suki also takes supplements. "I take Lyposheric C but it smells like goat poo! And I take magnesium which is good for muscles and for after training, and zinc and iron," she told Get the Gloss. "I'm a bit of a supplements addict – I have so many supplements – but I don't take them every day as it's not that much fun taking them. I also take aloe vera tablets which I like."



Suki indulges in self-care. "I have a three-hour bath and eat a lot of cereal in the bath," Waterhouse told Well + Good. "I love making coffee grain and honey masks and covering my body with it to exfoliate. It's quite bad for cleaning up after." Baths have been linked to better sleep and even found helpful to minimize anxiety and depression. One recent study even found that they offer cardiovascular benefits as well.
