Shay Mitchell Flaunts Bikini Body for 'Self' June 2013!

Shay Mitchell Flaunts Bikini Body for 'Self' June 2013!

Shay Mitchell shows off her toned body in her bikini bottoms on the cover of Self magazine‘s June 2013 issue.

Here is what the 26-year-old Pretty Little Liars actress had to share with the mag:

On living out her dreams: “When I was living in Toronto and going to my bottle service [waitress] job, I walked down the street as if I were the actor I wanted to be. Back then, my vision board had a Hollywood sign and palm trees on it. I knew this was going to happen. It’s important to wake up every day and remind yourself what you’re working toward.You create your own life. It’s not set out there for you.”

On her favorite foods: “I live thinking, If today’s my last day, what’s gonna make me happiest? And I do those things. I want to try different foods and enjoy myself, not starve myself to reach a number on the scale. My usuals: for breakfast, an egg-white omelet with spinach and mushrooms; for lunch, a salad with fish or chicken; and for dinner, veggie soup. Oh, and I love potato chips!”

On being BFFs with her PLL co-stars: “Women should never compete with each other. We need to take away the jealousy, ego and all that. My costars and I are really close — it’s a nice sisterhood. Anytime they see a script that reminds them of me, they’ll be like, ‘You should go out for this part.’ It’s always a total girl who kicks ass. My ultimate role would be a Bond girl. I love the action and the girl who does it in heels!”

LOL

This girl has 2 or 3 viable expressions at most including a duckface

@Ellie: LOL! Yeah, sounds REALLY different and enjoyable. I don’t known how these girls function. There’s nothing wrong with healthy eating but this is just sad and it sounds so boring and bland to eat too.

Why did they choose that picture for the cover? She look awkward. the jumping one is much better

@Cate:

YES. A low carb diet is neither healthy nor “normal”. Rather sad and so not enjoyable.

# 6

@Ellie: A low carb diet has proved to be healthy for many (not saying it works for all)! And I’m not talking about weight loss issues. I myself am following a low carb diet and have seen the symptoms of an autoimmune disease that I’ve had for over 4 1/2 years reduce dramatically in just a few weeks… apparently eating grains (very high in carbs) is not normal for some bodies… so ummm, say again???

@Pretty Ka:

Low carb but high in animal protein is not healthy (hello cancer)… but that’s my opinion. I don’t like the “carbs are so bad for you and make you gain weight” trend, it’s just very untrue.

And if you look at her “usual meals” she can’t eat more than 1000 cals a day.

@Pretty Ka:

Also, so many people eat low carb even though they have no health or weight issues! This whole phenomena caused disordered eating habits and is just so messed up!

She’s gorgeous anyway

@Ellie: Yeah, fads can be dangerous. At first people may feel great when changing their diets, but then a few years down the road they find their health has been diminished due to those long-term changes. I don’t advocate a high animal protein consumption either (actually I was a vegan for 10 years!), I think some people can really go overboard when it comes to that (eating lamb brain lasagna? No thanks!)

On the subject of cancer, I think those shady grains could be culprits in many cases, but the idea of meat being THE culprit of every disease is very ingrained in our imaginaries.

Pearls of wisdom

Trust me, this girl never worked a day in her life as a “bottle service” girl. Her parents are loaded and she was only friends with the uber rich back in Toronto.
