How does Sanya Lopez maintain her sexy figure?

What is the secret to Sanya Lopez's toned figure? Was it all the exercise she got playing the challenging role of Encantadia's Sang'gre Danaya?

The answer, Sanya reveals, is intermittent fasting.

In an interview with Fair Magazine, which tapped Sanya as its cover girl for June to July, the Kapuso actress said she fasts for 16 hours.

"I usually do not eat for 16 hours then I will eat in moderation for eight hours," she said.

Intermittent fasting is a diet plan that leaves only a window spanning a few hours to eat meals.

But that doesn't mean that Sanya eats whatever she wants during that window.

"If I am preparing for a photo shoot, I only eat salad, a variety of veggies and fruit and drink a blend of natural juices for eight hours," she said.

She added that she also have cheat days, usually on weekends.

This actually improves the effect of intermittent fasting, Sanya said.

"Once our body is used to the diet or to the eating cycle we have, it won't be as effective before," she said.

Aside from this diet plan, Sanya also hits the treadmill every once in a while and does other cardio exercised.
