“Don’t September me,” Maria captioned the photo. Fans went wild over the snap, with one writing, “Um your abs are epic! You look amazing! #inspiring.” Another chimed in: “I’ve never seen flatter abs,” while an additional fan added: “So gorgeous!”
Over a decade ago, Maria lost 40 pounds and talks candidly about how she’s kept it off for so long. She even rote a book called The EveryGirl’s Guide to Diet and Fitness where she shares some of her top tips.
In an interview with Too Fab, Maria said hydration is one of her key essentials to staying in tip top she.

"Drink hot water throughout the day. Sounds simple but it works," she said. "Sometimes when you think you are hungry, you're really dehydrated. Besides having a calming effect, drinking the hot water can help suppress your appetite. Plus, drinking hot water after eating helps digestion. Think of it as melting the food in your stomach. You can add lemon, as some experts believe that can help burn calories, too."
As far as her workouts, Maria told the media outlet, "I don't have an official routine. Though I wish I did, I don't go to the gym often. Generally speaking, I find creative ways to squeeze in exercises during my daily living routine and I stay as active as I possibly can. I walk instead of drive. I opt for stairs instead of escalators. I also have an inexpensive pedometer that measures my daily steps. I strive to do 10,000 a day and whether I accomplish that or not, it's a reminder to try."

In her book, Maria said she makes sure to keep leafy greens in her fridge and Greek yogurt. She also keeps anything unhealthy out of her house. "I think that makes a big difference because if it's there, I will eat it," she explains. "If it's not there, I'm too lazy to go get it."
She also doesn’t eat dinner past 8 p.m. "If it's too late, and I'm really hungry, I'll have a Greek yogurt or something simple like that," she wrote. "That way I don't have a big meal that I have to digest during the night."
It’s clear Maria’s fitness and diet tips are worth jotting down. She looks incredible!
