Sohee Carpenter (@soheefit) is showing off her chiseled abs and revealing the healthy habits responsible for them. In a new social media post the fitness expert and influencer looks amazing in a two-piece workout set, and shares some tips with her followers. "Why I prioritize health behaviors over body weight alone," she writes in the first slide. She goes on to list a few easy ways to incorporate this into your life. What are her "healthy habits"? The Body Network has the details.  

Healthy Lifestyle

Sohee, who battled body image issues as a teen, tries to promote healthy behaviors. "Even though I'm a certified strength and conditioning specialist, the majority of my content is focused on body image and eating behavior," she told Women's Health. "The workouts are usually not the part people struggle with—it's the eating, the sleep, the everything else."

Carbs Are Not the Enemy, She Says

One thing Sohee does is challenge people to rethink their diet. For example, a former client had a habit of avoiding carbs until dinner and overeating at night. So, she challenged her to question the assumption that carbs aren't so-called breakfast foods. She encouraged the woman to add rice or potatoes to her morning meal for a number of days. "A month later, she's like, 'Oh my god, I'm not bingeing anymore. This is so cool.'"

Moving Daily

In Sohee's recent post she lists several healthy habits that keep her mentally and physically fit. A few of them have to do with "getting in daily movement." She recommends "strength training multiple days per week." Physical activity is anything that gets your body moving. Each week adults need 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity and 2 days of muscle-strengthening activity, according to the current Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans.

A Colorful Diet & Hydration

As for diet, Sohee says you should focus on eating "colorful fibrous veggies," protein, and whole grains in most, if not all, meals." 

She also encourages "staying sufficiently hydrated." The Mayo Clinic explains that water helps get rid of waste through urination, perspiration, and bowel movements, keeps your temperature normal, lubricates and cushions joints, and helps protect sensitive tissues. 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.

Sleep and Rest

Sohee also maintains that "making time for rest and rejuvenation" is important, as is "prioritizing adequate quality sleep.  According to the Sleep Foundation, getting enough z's is a mood booster, promotes heart health, regulates blood sugar, improves mental function, restores your immune system, helps relieve stress, and aids in weight loss.
