First Web Show
Sierra Furtado made her first web show appearance as herself in an episode, titled YouTubers React to YouTube Rewind 2015, of the comedy reality series, YouTubers React, in January 2016.
Sierra Furtado stays fit by maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle. She is not that much of a gym person and rather enjoys doing home workouts which include doing some cardio exercises like burpees, high knees, squats, and jumping jacks, dancing, doing some stretching exercises, and practicing yoga. Yoga also helps her release stress and calm down.
Sierra also loves to run as well as go on hikes. While running, she makes sure to put on some good music and also ties back her hair because it irritates her when her hair covers her face while running. Moreover, to work out her core, she indulges in exercises like crunches, sit-ups, planks, and leg raises.
In one of her YouTube videos, Sierra Furtado advised her fans to be more organized to be able to continue living a healthier lifestyle and also make a list of their favorite exercises to do. According to her, working out 3 days a week is sufficient enough but that may also vary from person to person.
As far as her diet is concerned, Sierra does follow any particular diet and focuses on adding healthier products in her meals rather than just counting and cutting down on calories. She is of the idea that focusing on calories and eating less only makes things worse and one ends up eating more than he/she should have. She also keeps herself hydrated by drinking a lot of water throughout the day and has also claimed that this habit of hers has helped her keep various skin problems at bay. Sierra snacks on berries and yogurt. In one of her videos, Sierra Furtado also shared a recipe of a healthy smoothie that was prepared using spinach, kale, orange juice, pineapples, and apples.
One additional workout tip that the diva has for her fans is to wear some cute gym wear. The idea behind this is that if you feel happy and confident, it will motivate you to do more exercises and also maybe a tougher workout.
