Daddario tells People that she isn’t about extreme dieting or starving herself. Instead, she focuses on eating healthy. “I eat when I’m hungry,” she says.
“I try to stay away from anything unnatural, but if you are trying to stay healthy and you get too hungry, it will only be more difficult to stay away from things like too much sugar if you don’t give yourself what you want sometimes. I’m focused on being healthy and not stressing or obsessing over food.”
Daddario tells People that while she eats healthy, she isn’t afraid to treat herself or indulge when she wants to. “I eat what I like, even if I know it’s not ideal sometimes,” says Daddario. “You have to allow yourself to cheat. I know if I have some ice cream at night it’s not going to affect me negatively. Enjoy your life!”
Daddario says that she’s a huge fan of doing yoga, does it regularly, and says that it has helped her with both her body and her confidence.
“Regular exercise and yoga has made a huge difference in how I approach my diet because it makes feel better about myself,” she says to People. She previously told the magazine, “I feel like it helps with anxiety, it helps with sleep, it was sort of more of a mental thing.”
While preparing for her role in the 2017 film, Baywatch, Daddario decided to change up her regular workouts. She tells Women’s Health, “Really, I’ve never done anything where I’ve thought about my body as much.
You are literally in a bikini the entire day. I even wore a swimsuit when I auditioned with Zac Efron” Daddario decided to start strength training with trainer Patrick Murphy. “For Baywatch, I started doing weight training, which I had never done before, and I saw a huge difference. It was kind of amazing, the transformation I went through.”
Daddario tells Health.com that she makes sure to make time for self-care, saying that she makes time to meditate “five or ten minutes each day.” She says, “We live in a time where we’re really hard on ourselves, and I think that forgiving ourselves is a huge thing,” she says.
