Eva Mendes says she is not “naturally slim” and instead attributes her great body to consistent exercise and healthy eating.
She explained to Health & Beauty magazine that
“…I work out hard and I am consistent. It can be difficult fitting in exercise when I’m on location as there just isn’t time, but I always try to do a shortened version of my usual routine.”
Mendes then went into detail about her exercise routine, revealing
“I exercise at least five days a week; I love to run and I mix it up with light weights and squats. I also do yoga twice a week to stretch my body. Plus, it helps with my posture and relaxes my mind.”
The 37-year-old actress wasn’t always so mindful about her health, though, revealing
“I never cared about exercise or what I was eating until I reached my 20s and then I started eating well and going from drinking no water to up to three litres a day. I really believe in the beauty philosophy of starting from within now; it’s kind of changed my life.”
