- Netflix’s latest reality dating show, Too Hot To Handle, is already stirring up
- The show centers around the challenge of incredibly fit and single people trying not having sex with each other.
- One of the cast members, Francesca, caught up with Women’s Health to talk about how she stayed fit on the show and IRL.
Netflix’s latest reality dating series Too Hot To Handle is all anyone can talk about. The show is based on the seemingly shallow, yet highly entertaining concept of sticking 10 attractive individuals in a resort in Mexico and telling them that they can’t have sex. Their challenge? To form deeper connections. And some people actually do.
But what happens when the hot cast isn’t flirting with each other, laying out in the sun, or bettering themselves? Do they eat? Because meals are definitely never shown on camera. The cast has to be eating something to keep their fit bods fit (amirite?). Cast member Francesca Farago even mentions being vegan several times throughout the show.
Well, Francesca caught up with Women’s Health to explain how she stuck to her vegan diet while filming. Turns out she had someone cooking for her the entire time. “We had a chef, and he was amazing,” Francesca said. While he was making everyone else beef wellington, the chef would find fun vegan subs for her like beet wellington. “He always, always, always had an alternative for me. So it was the best food ever,” she told WH.
The Instagram model said that going vegan six years ago changed her life and body “for the better times a thousand.” She finds it easier to stay lean and to stick to her ideal weight while on a vegan diet packed with veggies and free of processed foods.
“Of course, I have a sweet tooth so I eat dessert a few times a week. And especially with quarantine it’s hard not to eat a bunch of Oreos. But I try to work out three to four times a week,” she said.
Her at-home workouts right now include focusing on legs, arms, and abs. “I don’t do heavy lifting. I should, because I want a nice, juicy booty,” she said. “But right now I just kind of do overall full body and then I think it’s mainly diet for me that keeps me lean.”
Well, with no immediate end in sight to the quarantine, Francesca has some time to achieve her new body goals. Good luck, girl.
