The Mary Sue
Evangeline Lilly is no stranger to playing characters who were physically fit, from Kate Austen in Lost to Tauriel in The Hobbit. For her starring role in Ant-Man And The Wasp, however, she took things to a new level and reportedly outworked fellow star Paul Rudd during their stunt scenes. Here is more on her superhero workout and diet regimen.
Committed To Six Days A Week
Obviously, getting into superhero shape doesn’t happen overnight. Evangeline was committed to her role, though, and worked out an astonishing six times a week! She targeted different areas of her body for each day of the week and only allowed herself a break every Sunday, which she used to heal and recover.
Eating Good And Feeling Good
Your body is your temple, so why put garbage into it? Evangeline decided to re-focus her diet after she’d been on Lost and could afford a better diet. She makes sure there are vegetables in every one of her meals. She still enjoys the occasional junk food, but it’s more the exception than the rule nowadays. Her healthier, organic diet has translated into a better sense of self.
De-Stressing Your Daily Life
Evangeline also keeps in fantastic shape by keeping her daily stress level low. With stress leading to so many other health-related problems, she turns to her lifelong love of dance to de-stress after a long day. It’s her way of releasing pent-up energy and looking after her body.
Along with her workout regimen and daily diet, Evangeline also gets a good night’s rest. Studies have shown that getting enough sleep helps many areas of your life, from the immune system to your mood. Eight to 10 hours of sleep can help reduce stress and lower your risk of other health problems.
It’s Never Too Late To Change
While her lifestyle and workout routine are set, Evangeline realizes that things can always change for better or worse. She believes in a foundation of consistent maintenance of your exercise and diet. It’s never too late to start a new workout routine or begin eating healthier foods. The point is to remain consistent after your change and the results will speak for themselves.
