Swedish Model Elsa Hosk Shares Swimsuit Photo of "California Dreamin"

Here are her go-to health habits

Elsa Hosk is heating up the beach in her bathing suit. In one of her latest social media posts, the Swedish model shows off her amazing body while enjoying the sand and surf with her family. "California dreamin," she captioned the Instagram post. "Lovely," commented one of her followers. "Beautiful," added another. How does the supermodel stay fit and healthy? Here are some of her go-to health habits. 


Beauty Sleep

Elsa prioritizes rest. "I'm usually good with six or seven hours. I get 6 most of the time, but sometimes I sleep, like, 13 hours. Sleep is so important. I think more important than we know. When I haven't slept, I'm not myself. I'm not as easy-going," she told The Cut. According to the Sleep Foundation, getting enough z's is a mood booster, promotes heart health, regulates blood sugar, improves mental function, restores your immune system, helps relieve stress, and aids in weight loss. 


No Diets


Elsa doesn't believe in strict diets. "I am really bad at being on a diet. As soon as I tell myself, 'You have to eat this or that,' I am going to do the exact opposite, so I didn't tell myself anything. I just tried to stay away from processed food," she told ELLE


Plant-Based Lifestyle


"I try to eat healthy and a plant-based diet," Elsa dished to Coveteur. "I watched the documentary What the Health, and it affected me a lot. I was like, 'OK, I have to change how I eat.' In Sweden we eat a lot of dairy, cheese, and eggs, so I've cut that out for the past 5 weeks and I'm seeing a big improvement in my skin and in my belly. And I feel much better. It makes you realize there's definitely something to it."




Hosk likes to fight her way to a hot body. "I love boxing, and I try to mix it up as much as I can. Boxing makes you kind of tight, so it's really good to mix that with barre, pilates, or something that'll stretch you out and make you longer. I'm not the person that loves to be in the gym so much. I like to mix it up as much as possible, otherwise I'll get bored," she told Marie Claire




"I just started running," Hosk told Coveteur. "I don't time it; I don't put any pressure on myself, I just go the pace I want. I think that's a really beautiful way to feel yourself and feel your body and see the city."


Weight Lifting


Elsa is all about lifting weights. "On the runway you're wearing really heavy wings and really high heels, so you need really strong legs so you don't fall," she told Coveteur. 


Dance Cardio

Elsa also does dance-inspired workouts. "I've been training with Megan Roup, who does dance cardio. It's lots of toning moves for the glutes, legs, and arms. She's just really fun," she told Elle.
