Getting back in shape after giving birth is a challenge — especially when time is limited. Just ask Kate Hudson, who welcomed her third child, Rani Rose, with boyfriend Danny Fujikawa in October 2018.
The 40-year-old confessed that when she gave birth to her sons Ryder and Bingham, she was able to get back in shape quicker. However, the same couldn’t be said after the arrival of her daughter. “Unlike with the other two, I didn’t really have time to work out,” she told Women’s Health in an interview published on Monday, November 18. “It took a different kind of discipline.”
So how did Kate manage to lose the baby weight? Well, she relied on Weight Watchers, who she has a partnership with. The diet consisted of portion control and eating five times a day. We think the actress always looks great no matter what, but now that she reached her goal, she’s more confident than ever. “I feel good, energetic and strong,” she said. “I feel like myself again.”
Throughout the day, Kate likes to snack on oatmeal, celery juice, a protein shake or an acai bowl. Meanwhile, her heavier meals consist of fish, chicken or steak. That doesn’t sound bad at all! In addition to eating right, the How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days alum likes to workout somewhere between three to four times a week. She enjoys staying active and trying different things, whether it’s pole dancing, yoga or pilates. “I love how flexible I get and what it does to the shape of my body,” she told the outlet.
This kind of lifestyle has led her to be the happiest version of herself. “I spent a lot of years [running] on adrenaline,” Kate, who has been in the entertainment industry for over two decades, said. “I’ve always been joyful, but I never felt calm.” But that all changed when the actress made the effort to “kind of chill out — take a step back from acting, from making movies that weren’t really making me happy — and look at what I really want to do and what I want to give back and what kind of parent I want to be.”
You go, girl!
