Mia Khalifa, an ex-adult film star and a transitioned social media and sports personality opens up about how her slender and defined shaped requires more work than meets the eye, as she contributes her share for #transformationtuesday, a widespread Instagram trend. It seems Mia had enough people knocking her efforts down to simply "good genes" and a "young metabolism". Indeed, the 25-year-old passionately explained that her assumed effortless physique isn't just a matter of chance and luck, but actually requires a gruelling 5-day regime in the gym. Thanks to her fitness routine, the star does not compromise her figure for her love of food and highlights the importance of "balancing [her] passion". In a blast from the past alongside her transformation, Mia wrote: 'Life is about balance. For me, it’s balancing my passion and love for food with my health. People ask me all the time how I eat so much and stay skinny – IT HASN’T ALWAYS BEEN THAY [sic] WAY AND IT TAKES A S*** TON OF F***ING WORK. It’s not “good genes," or a “young metabolism." It’s 5 days grinding in the gym every f***ing week so I can go on a guilt free culinary excursion every few months and be able to drown my protein in a creamy morel sauce without looking like an offensive tackle for the Washington Redskins. Anyways, the point is, work hard, eat carbs.'Whilst being a tremendous foodie with such a trim yet curvy bod might seem a little dubious to some, it seems that the balance with Mia aims to achieve is well-documented on her insta page where her share of burger bites looks about even compared to her gym bunny mirror snaps.Back in 2014, Mia Khalifa was the most viewed actress on adult entertainment giant, PornHub.
