Tabata Jalil Stuns in New Bikini Photo Posing on the Beach
Mexican TV star Tabata Jalil is enjoying a luxurious getaway at the Unico Hotel Riviera Maya resort in sunny Mexico. Jalil, 44, shared vacation pictures of herself on social media, posing in a green bikini against a background of beautiful blue skies. "Dance in the air and travel in the sky, sun kisses ✨," she captioned the post. How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Jalil stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.
Healthy Whole Foods
Jalil starts the day with a glass of water and a fruit smoothie, before enjoying a healthy breakfast of scrambled eggs with tortillas. "I never drink soda, I always have lunch with water," she says. "I prepare myself a vegetable soup with chicken broth, a roasted breast with rice and some tortillas, sometimes guacamole."
Jalil's co-to snack is usually ham and turkey with a side of olives, which are full of beneficial monounsaturated fat (ie the kind of fat you want for good health, along with polyunsaturated fat). "Fat isn't the enemy," says Devon Peart, RD, MHSc, BASc. "Some types of fat, like the fat in olives and olive oil, are actually heart healthy. Olives do what you want a snack to do: They're good for your health and keep hunger at bay until your next meal."
Hiking In Nature
Jalil calls herself a nature lover, and enjoys nothing more than hiking in the great outdoors. "Exercising in nature leads to greater health benefits than performing the same activity indoors," says the National Parks Service. "Individuals are more likely to repeat being physically active when the exercise is performed in a natural environment. Communities that are closer to nature are more likely to have stronger ties with their community members."
Jalil loves getting moderate sun exposure for her vitamin D, which is crucial for good health and happiness. "Getting some sun may also shake off the wintertime blues: Research suggests that light hitting your skin, not just your eyes, helps reverse seasonal affective disorder (SAD)," say the experts at Harvard Health. "Moreover, being outside gets us golfing, gardening, and engaging in other types of physical activity."
Jalil loves skating with her friends. "Since the wheels on rollerblades are aligned in a sort of 'balance beam' formation, you need to recruit your core and other stabilizer muscles to keep you upright," says Marissa Miller, an ACE-certified personal trainer. "I recommend that clients establish an affinity for a certain physical activity before paying any attention to the number of calories burned. If you're sweating and breathing heavily, you'll be getting in some movement that's super beneficial for your cardiovascular, muscular and psychological fitness."
