Shahs of Sunset on Bravo is freaking hilarious. I die laughing every time Reza speaks. But the stand out star? GG. Short for Golnesa Gharachedaghi. She’s amaze. Her sassy, savvy personality made me want to interview her ASAP. Here we talk skinny tips, recipes, & how she stays fab & fit:
+ Describe yourself.
GG: I believe my simplicity is my complexity. I enjoy life to the fullest and that requires me taking care of myself in many levels. Healthy mind, healthy body…Healthy body, healthy mind!!!
+ When you’re filming, is it difficult to eat healthy because of the ulber busy schedule?
GG: It gets quite difficult to be able to ALWAYS eat healthy. Not just because of being on tv, but it’s very hard for people in all professions to do so. You get so caught up in what you’re doing sometimes that you easily dismiss your tummy. I learned my lesson the hard way with a recent visit to the emergency room. I was so busy traveling and taking care of my business that I slowly began losing more and more time to eat. Until one day my body couldn’t keep up and I fainted. Never forget to put your health ahead of work.
+ If you had to do a bikini shoot in a week, how would you prepare?
GG: I have always turned to extremely green vegetables because it gets your digestive system running [ if ya know what I mean ; ) ] and that helps cleanse the body in a healthy way. I also like to do AB work to tighten it up a bit. Pilates always helps with loose problem areas & is also a great for strengthening.
+ Weekly workout schedule?
GG: It’s very hard to have a set work out schedule being so busy as I can be at times. Especially now having rheumatoid arthritis, it makes certain forms of exercise nearly impossible, so physical therapy is a huge part of my life now.
+ Natural beauty remedy?
I have been using 100% natural & unrefined rose water for ages now. I wash my face as I normally would with face soap and water, then I heavily swab my face with rose water and I let it dry, rinse with water & boom…Gorgeous glowing skin!
+ Favorite go-to healthy food?
GG: I’m a huge salad fan so I usually can’t go one day without having a huge bowl of salad. I have recently been adding kale, chia seeds, & quinoa to everything…Such healthy super foods.
+ Motivation to stay in shape?
GG: My biggest motivation is knowing that I want to have lots of children and that I need to maintain my health in order to make that happen. I grew up having parents that eat extremely healthy so it totally motivates me to have that influence upon my children. The amount of deaths within cancer disease & the American Heart Association has become a scary toll, and so much of this is caused by living an unhealthy lifestyle. Again, healthy mind, healthy body…Healthy body, healthy mind!!
+ Favorite beauty product?
GG: I’ve gotta say, I can leave the house in sweats and no make-up on at all, but I will never leave my house without my hair looking amazing. So I always turn to GG’s Extensions to make sure my locks are looking amazing. After-all, amazing hair is a sign of youth and fertility, & is an instant attraction to all.
