First TV Show
Maria Hering made her first TV show appearance as ‘Herself’ in an episode titled Der Recall #1 of the music reality-TV series Deutschland sucht den Superstar (Germany’s Looking For A Superstar) in January 2010.
Maria eats a plant-based diet and has started her own Instagram page, named Maria’s Plant Kitchen. Her goal is to help her massive fanbase with their own dietary changes via easy-to-follow cooking recipes. Most of the recipes are also vegan, and her favorite foods are definitely salads, pasta, and avocado toast. She’s also an avid yoga practitioner, and does it almost anywhere, from the gym, to her backyard, and even outside, on the beach. Maria has admitted to almost always training alone, as having a training partner makes her lose focus, and she doesn’t like talking during the workout.
She has shared with her fans that at the age of 26, she didn’t really pay too much attention to sports. However, in mid-2019, Maria had realized the importance of sports and began going to the gym at least 3 times a week. She prefers to go to the gym in the morning, on the empty stomach, after she drinks a cup of coffee. Maria has found herself finding more excuses not to go to the gym as the day goes on, which is why morning workouts fit her so well.
She loves all types of cardio as well, from riding a scooter, a quad bike, cycling, swimming, playing golf, and boxing. Maria is also not opposed to alcohol and thinks a glass of wine is always a good idea, as long as it’s done in moderation. Even though she knows that drinking at least 2 to 2.5 liters of water per day is necessary for optimal body functionality, she often finds herself struggling to meet that goal.
