Ian Somerhalder who now? Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev shows just how cut up she is over her recent break-up with co-star and all round hottie Somerhalder by posting a shot of herself looking amazing in a bikini doing a cartwheel. As you do.

The 'throw-back-Thursday' picture on her Who Say site shows off her amazingly toned bod, and is sure to give her ex of three years something to think on.

So how do you get a bikini bod worthy of a cartwheeling bikini selfie?

Dobrev credits her physique to yoga and eating regular small meals. Speaking to Self magazine, the 24-year-old explained, 'Starving to be skinny isn't my thing. When I don't eat, it affects my mood! On-set, I fuel up with small meals and I'm always grabbing high-protein snacks, like almonds. Chai lattes with espresso also keep me going.'

However, the good news is puddings are still on the menu, 'I indulge in dessert probably more than I should.' she said. 'I just got an ice cream maker, and I've been making coconut-milk ice cream topped with shredded coconut. So yummy!"

'I'm a health nut and eat organic, but I also enjoy eating at restaurants and, recently, cooking. I love having dinner parties at my place in Atlanta, where we film,' she added.

The actress says that her healthy diet is complimented with regular yoga sessions, 'Yoga changed my body 100 percent. It tones everything and leans you out. Dancer's pose is amazing. It works every muscle! And you have to focus. If your mind is somewhere else, you'll fall,' she explained.

Aside from yoga, Dobrev also does cardio in the form of spin classes and running, 'Exercising gives me endorphins and energy. I do it four days a week. I Spin with Candice Accola and Claire Holt from the show. Running is my solo time; working my muscles outside in fresh air is therapeutic.'
