Stause’s personal trainer, Ocho, revealed her favorite workouts to Women’s Health. He says that Stause likes to do HIIT. “Her schedule is very hectic, so we get in what we can,” Ocho explained. “HIIT training is one of the most efficient ways she can build muscle and burn fat at the same time.” “HIIT is a type of interval training exercise. It incorporates several rounds that alternate between several minutes of high intensity movements to significantly increase the heart rate to at least 80% of one’s maximum heart rate, followed by short periods of lower intensity movements. Interval training was first introduced in the 1950s as a higher intensity form called sprint interval training, which reached 100% maximum heart rate and was used to improve the performance of elite Olympic athletes,” says Harvard Health.
Stause also likes to do weight training as a way to stay in shape. Ocho told Women’s Health that he likes to build the reality star’s muscles. “We do heavyweight and plyometrics, as well as HIIT, so that her body is always moving and so that she never gets bulky, but still gains strength,” he explained. “Most adults lose about one-half pound of muscle per year after the age of 30, largely due to decreased activity. Muscle tissue is partly responsible for the number of calories burned at rest (the basal metabolic rate, or BMR). As muscle mass increases, BMR increases, making it easier to maintain a healthy body weight,” says ACE Fitness.
Stause loves to do Pilates as a form of exercise. “She practices Pilates once or twice a week to lengthen, stretch and recover,” Ocho tells Women’s Health. “It’s low impact and allows her to reset, while still getting a good workout in.” “Strengthening exercises not only protect your bone health, but also speed your metabolism and improve your balance. In addition, building stronger muscles helps to protect and stabilize your joints, which can prevent injury and ease discomfort,” says Harvard Health.
Stause broke down some of her favorite foods and her typical diet to Women’s Health. She says that she likes to eat a healthy breakfast, and has a go-to meal in particular. “What I love for breakfast is eggs,” she said. “My favourite thing is scrambled egg whites with cheddar cheese and pepper.” “Most healthy people can eat up to seven eggs a week without increasing their risk of heart disease. Some studies have shown that this level of egg consumption might even help prevent certain types of stroke and a serious eye condition called macular degeneration that can lead to blindness,” says the Mayo Clinic.
Stause revealed some of her favorite healthy snacks to Women’s Health. “When I’m busy, I normally either grab a banana and peanut butter, or a protein bar. I’m obsessed with peanut butter.” “Is peanut butter good for you? Ilyse Schapiro, MS, RD, CDN thinks so. She shares that peanut butter’s monounsaturated fat and protein are highly satiating,” says our sister site Eat This, Not That! “How to eat peanut butter for weight loss:
