In an interview with PEP.ph, Lovi Poe shared exactly how she maintains her 21-inch waistline even if she's busy taping for her Kapuso primetime series.
According to the 29-year old actress, she follows the 80-20 diet rule. "Eighty percent of the time, I'm healthy-eating, twenty percent of the time, I'm eating what I want. I don't believe in starving yourself and stopping yourself from eating certain kinds of food. It's nice to indulge yourself every once in a while."
Of course, she pairs her diet with regular workouts to help maintain her figure. She added, "Workout din, of course, but you can never outrun a bad diet, so workout and healthy lifestyle talaga."
Lovi makes sure to find time and start her day with AT LEAST a 30-minute workout.
She said, "I try to work out every day, at least 30 minutes a day. Kahit may trabaho, at least thirty minutes. It makes a big difference."
"But it's not just about how you look, but how you feel. Ako, before my day begins, I get up early in the morning even before my call time, and then I work out. Kasi it makes me feel much more inspired, and makes me feel more happy to work that day."
This is also why Lovi discourages people from becoming seasonal gym-goers. She explained, "I think it's important to have discipline, and consistency is key. I don't believe in achieving a certain kind of goal para lang sa summer. Kailangan lifestyle mo 'yun, hindi siya puwedeng, 'Ah, magsa-summer na, maggi-gym na ako.' Dapat, part of your routine na talaga 'yun."
Despite her sexy bod (and growing IG fanbase who look to her for fitspiration), Lovi admits that she also has her insecurities. But she advises women not to let those issues stop them from loving themselves and accepting who they are. "Every woman has her own story, and every woman can be an inspiration.
"Every one has their own insecurities, and it's not bad having insecurities. And those insecurities will help you humble yourself, and also make you strive for more, and that's a good thing. Just embrace your imperfections and love them, because, you know, at the end of the day it's your beautiful soul that counts."
