The famous Glee star, Kate Hudson works hard in maintaining her body, but the interesting part is she does not spend hours in the gym. She is more of yoga and aerobics enthusiast. When she had started working out, her instructor taught her Pilates work out. And ever since then, she has never gone a day without doing these exercises. It’s been 15 years that she’s been doing the same workout and well, we assume that is her fitness secret.
You too can get a gorgeous sculpted body just like Kate Hudson if you work hard enough. To start with, you can take tips from her four most beneficial Pilates exercises.
Kate Hudson’s Workout Routine
What to do: Roll-ups
How to do: Lie on your back with your arms stretched overhead. Make sure your knees are straight, legs stretched out, and toes are apart from each other. Raise your arms and upper body till you are in a 90 degree seated position. Reach out as far as you can, hold for two seconds and go back to the initial position.
Repeat this 10 times in each set and perform 2-3 such sets.
What to do: Double Leg stretch
How to do: Initially, lie on your back with your knees bent over the hips, heels must be together but the toes apart. Your arms must be stretched out on the side of your hips and legs; palms should face each other. Inhale and exhale while you stretch yourself in a distorted V shape. Return to the initial position and go over.
Repeat this 15 times in each set and perform 2-3 such sets.
What to do: Rond de Jambe
How to do: Rest on either left or right side keeping your hands behind your back in a relaxing position. If you are resting on your right side, pull your right leg up to a 90-degree angle and then move it in a circular motion, clockwise and anticlockwise. Do the same resting on the left side of your body this time. You can use bands for ease.
Repeat the exercise 10 times for each side and at least complete 2 sets. You can go as far as 4 sets.
What to do: Hot Potato
How to do: Rest on either one of your sides, left or right just as you did for the previous exercise, with hands behind your back. If you are starting with your right side, raise your left leg upwards, hold for two seconds and then lower it. Keep moving it up and down 8-10 times in one set.
Repeat it 8-10 times in each set. At least 2 sets are recommended.
Besides her Pilates exercise, Kate also likes to run and go cycling.
Kate Hudson’s Diet Plan
One thing that Kate Hudson is serious about is her alkaline diet. Meaning, she avoids eating acidic food as almost 70% of her food intake is fruits and vegetables. She avoids meat and dairy products. In fact, she once said she doesn’t even remember the last time she had steak, but she does take chicken for protein.
Also, Kate never fails to surprise us. According to one of her interviews, Kate does not believe in having her morning breakfast. I know I know, breakfast is the most important meal of the day and almost every other fitness expert will tell you the same, but Kate is just not a breakfast person.
The reason behind this is that if she takes breakfast, then she doesn’t feel much hungry during the day and ends up eating too much late at night which messes up her whole schedule. So, she has a slightly different meal plan than all of us that keeps her fit and healthy.
She divides her food intake into five small meals that she has during the day. It seems to work for Kate, but it may or may not work for you. Here’s what her 5 meals look like:
Meal 1 –
- Liquid Egg Whites
- Sliced Avocado
- Fresh Salsa
- Cup Organic Mixed Berries
Meal 2 –
- Apples and Almond butter
- Metabolism boosting pill
Meal 3 –
- Boneless and skinless Chicken breast topped with a little organic Hummus
- Mashed Sweet potato with cinnamon and marshmallow
Meal 4 –
- Coconut Milk
- Vanilla Whey Protein
- Frozen Bananas
- Frozen Pineapples
- Chia seeds
Meal 5 –
- Steamed vegetables, cooked in coconut oil with garlic and oregano
So that’s what Kate Hudson eats to stay fit, but that doesn’t mean that she doesn’t have cheat days. Once in a while when she is craving to go out to a nice place and have delicious food, she would do that. On those days she is not thinking about staying fit but simply enjoying the food.
