Gal makes sure to drink a lot of water. “I wake up and drink water like a camel,” she explained to Shape. “I have a full, chilled bottle of Smartwater + Clarity before coffee or anything else.” “Mayo Clinic recommends this minimum daily intake of water:
- Women — 11.5 cups
- Men — 15.5 cups
By consuming the minimum recommendation of water, you’re helping your body function better and improving your overall health. Read tips and a recipe if you have difficulty drinking enough water daily. For more information about ways to consume more water and find out if you’re getting enough for your body’s needs, talk to your health care provider,” says the Mayo Clinic.
Gal is a big fan of one really healthy diet. “Since I’m from the Middle East, I’m very much all about the Mediterranean diet,” she recently told Good Housekeeping. She eats a lot of fresh veggies, olive oil, lean protein, and fruits. “I look at food as fuel, and I want to give the best to my body so I try to eat healthy on most days.”
Gadot allows herself to indulge in foods like burgers, ice cream, and chocolate, but pays attention to portion control. “I try to eat healthy yet balanced. I don’t like to deprive myself of anything. I believe in balance in everything, by the way,” she told Good Housekeeping. “I love to cook, and I’ve always been a foodie.”
Gal exercises almost daily and is a fan of interval training. “I try to get to it every day, but sometimes it’s more like three to four times a week,” she said. “The upside down,” she captioned a recent Instagram snap of herself doing a handstand during one of her workout sessions.
Gal’s goal is to be strong, not thin. “I feel so much better now. When you feel strong, it changes everything — your posture, the way you walk. I look at photos from five years ago and think, Whoa, I was too skinny. It’s not cool,” she told Glamour after packing on 17 pounds of “all muscle” to play Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
“Wellness is such an essential part of my life because the better I feel, the better I look, the better I am,” Gal told Shape. One of the ways she prioritizes self-care is by meditating with the Headspace app. “It’s quick, it’s easy to use, and it really helps me feel present,” she said. “That and getting enough quality sleep are the keys for me.”
