Happy and fit! Christina El Moussa has never been better — physically and emotionally.
“This is by far the happiest I’ve been in a while,” the soon-to-be Christina on the Coast star, who is dating British TV Presenter Ant Anstead following her split from husband and Flip or Flop costar Tarek El Moussa, tells Us Weekly in an exclusive interview. “I’m really excited about the future. I’m excited about the show. I’m in a great relationship. My kids are doing well, everything’s going really good.”
The HGTV personality is known for staying in stellar shape and isn’t afraid to show off her bikini-ready body. So, how does the mother of two (she shares daughter Taylor, 5, and son Braydon, 2, with Tarek) do it? “The main thing is diet, so I make sure that I eat a really good, organic, clean diet,” she tells Us. “If I’m eating something bad, I just feel bad. So my thing has always been just eating well.”
The Flip or Flop star follows a diet of 20 percent protein, 50 percent carbs and 30 percent fat, which “keeps her blood sugar stable,” her nutritionist Cara Clark previously told Us. Her go-to meals, added the pro, include overnight oats for breakfast, salad with quinoa for lunch, and vegan chili for dinner.
The 34-year old TV personality also sticks to a regular workout routine. “I work out five days a week. But most of my workouts are on average about 45 minutes. So they’re not really long, grueling workouts. I just like to get in, get out,” Christina tells Us.
To work up a sweat, Christina looks to Orangetheory, an interval-style class known for burning up to 1,000 calories in 60 minutes. “It’s half cardio, half weights,” she explains. “So I feel like you get a really good workout in an hour and I notice the biggest results from that.”
She also looks to her workouts as a way to de-stress. “I really love yoga,” she says. “It really just helps me relax and unwind after a stressful day.”
