Teresa got into yoga when her ex-husband, Joe, went to prison. While “looking for the next thing,” she discovered bodybuilding. “I also wanted to show my daughters that if you put hard work and time into something, you can achieve anything,” explained to Us about how she achieved her best body ever. “I love the way my arms and back look. All my clothes are big on me. My body drastically changed because of yoga, but this was even more extreme. It debunks the myth that if you’re over 40, you can’t look good.”
Teresa also drinks a ton of water. She revealed to Bravo that she makes sure she’s “drinking a gallon of water every day.” According to the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine men should drink about 15.5 cups (3.7 liters) of fluids a day and women about 11.5 cups (2.7 liters) of fluids.
“The most important thing is eating very clean,” Teresa dished to Bravo about how she eats. “My diet has changed. I even hate the word ‘diet’ but I can’t eat carbs anymore. Like, I’m an Italian girl, I can’t eat my pasta — I gotta eat good carbs.” She fuels up with veggies and protein. “So what I’m eating now is a protein and a vegetable. Grilled chicken, grilled turkey, grilled cod, grilled flounder. Some of the vegetables I eat are asparagus, green beans. In the morning I have oatmeal; otherwise sometimes I make six egg whites and I make an omelette out of it and I put some kind of vegetable in it.”
Teresa avoids drinking, especially when she is in bodybuilding mode. “I don’t consume that much alcohol anyway, but that’s when I feel sexiest because I feel good,” she told Life & Style.
In a recent Instagram post Teresa revealed she loves drinking celery juice. Our sister site Eat This, Not That! explains why the green juice is so beloved. “What research has shown is that celery juice seems to deliver on hydration in a big way. That’s because celery is composed almost entirely of water, and it contains the electrolyte potassium, which helps balance fluid in the body. As a result, celery juice can aid hydration.”
