I don’t know about you guys, but when some slim celebs claim they don’t deprive themselves of dessert or spend the majority of their waking hours in downward-facing dog, I’m like, “Yeahhh, you’re lying through your porcelain-veneered teeth.” But when rom-com cutie Kate Hudson says it, I totally believe her.
Hudson’s one of the few simultaneously glam and approachable actresses that you could actually picture yourself being friends with, and the down-to-earth diet and fitness wisdom she shares in the May issue of SELF make her even more relatable:
On Body Confidence: “I’ve had insecurities. I can look at a picture of Gisele all day long and say, ‘I’ll never have legs that long or lips that big.’ You have to honor who you are.”
On Fitness: “My workout mantra is ‘break a sweat every day. Even if it’s just for 20 minutes.”
On Food: “I make sure I eat well without depriving myself of the things that I love — a cheeseburger and fries, creamy white-truffle pasta, bowls of ice cream. Everything in moderation, but I indulge at least three times a week.”
Body acceptance, doable workouts, and a flexible eating plan? Sounds like the sanest path toward health and happiness to us!
