Celebrity healthy habits, are they the same as ours? Not always, to be sure.
It might be tough to relate to the day-to-day lives of the celebrities we know and love, with home gyms, live-in chefs, pre-prepared meals, and expensive skincare regimes.
It isn’t all pomp and circumstance, though. We’ve picked together with the healthy habits these winning women use to be happy, well, and on top of their game, from Rebel Wilson’s attitude toward sweets (it’s all about balance) to Michelle Keegan’s sweaty morning workout and Davina McCall‘s secret for ensuring she wakes up rejuvenated. (Have your pens handy; we’re sure you’ll be taking notes!)
Michelle Keegan swears on high-intensity interval training (HIIT)
Michelle K really enjoys sleeping in and slowing down in her mornings, and then smashing off a sweaty HIIT workout before a protein-rich meal when she’s not working. When she’s not in her home gym or on her bike — a passion she and husband Mark Wright picked up during lockdown – she’s a fan of quick intervals and pushing herself. Michelle told Cosmopolitan UK, “I’ve taken up cycling on a good road cycle.” ‘Three times a week, we go out and run 11 miles!’
‘It’s been convenient because we both work from home.’ We might be out all day, or I might have to go to Manchester [to film Brassic], or Mark might be in London.’
If you’re following Michelle’s lead and starting a two-wheeled hobby this year, make sure you’re properly equipped with a sturdy bike helmet and bike lights. They’ll keep you safe and visible on the road, which is the goal at all times.

However, the now-US citizen is said to start her days with a glass of lemon and hot water, followed by oats topped with banana and agave syrup for breakfast and pasta salads for lunch. She also loves drinking healthy green smoothies in the noon to maintain her energy levels and indulging herself in a glass of red at 6 p.m. if she feels like it.
Blake Lively works out at home with some wriggly equipment
Blake Lively used her daughters as extra weights during morning workouts, which was an excellent method to get the whole family involved.

Mama B, more power to you! Definitely, the most imaginative home gym equipment we’ve heard of in a long time.
Jennifer Aniston swears by yoga on a regular basis

Alicia Keys is a woman who takes care of herself from the inside out
In an interview with Vogue, Keys revealed that eliminating dairy and bread from her diet was the secret to clearing up her long-suffering complexion. ‘I’m a bread addict,’ she admits, adding that increasing her water consumption and eliminating fried foods from her diet was key to clearing up her acne.

Selena Gomez engages in strenuous circuit training sessions

In an interview with Byrdie, she says, ‘My whole thing is toning mixed with cardio and stretching.’ But don’t think the dynamic duo’s activities end there; they also practice ‘Pilates, trekking, dancing aerobics, CrossFit, yoga, and spinning—the list is endless on.’
Hailey Bieber schedules regular Pilates sessions
Former ballerina Hailey Bieber, a longtime Pilates lover, praises the workout for its muscle-strengthening and lengthening advantages.

Oti Mabuse‘s training plan will make even the most ardent early bird cringe. Strictly professional, former WH cover star and all-around glitterball of a human, Oti Mabuse’s fitness schedule will make even the most ardent early bird wince.
Her day begins with choreographic planning and emails when she wakes up around 4 a.m. every day. She then goes all out on difficult HIIT home workouts and strength training activities.
‘I normally workout in the morning, although I alternate between doing so before work and in the evening.’ It’s because I missed the morning workout that I do it in the evening.’ Heavy resemblance. (If you want to learn more about Oti’s specific healthy morning routine, go no further – we’ve got all the details.)

For a better night’s sleep, Whitney Port blocks blue light
For a time, blue-light-blocking glasses were alt-wellness fodder, but they’re now solidly mainstream. Smart glasses can help you fall asleep faster and sleep better, thanks to their capacity to block stimulating blue light from displayed devices-Whitney Port.
‘I’ve been wearing these to help with my headaches while on my phone, computer, and watching tv,’ she writes on Instagram, alongside an adorable photo of her toddler wearing the glasses.
Long-term exposure to blue light has been shown to inhibit melatonin, a hormone that helps your body and brain know when it’s time to sleep.
Carbohydrates are a staple in Jillian Michaels’ diet
Michaels, a multiple WH cover star, is known for her tuff style, which she applies to her diet as well. Not only does she loves having strong organic coffee – but she is also a Lucky Jack coffee investor, so she is never going to run out of coffee anytime soon – but she also believes in putting no foods off-limits, particularly carbs.
“I don’t have a carb-free diet, and carbs aren’t the ones you should be looking out for,” I eat carbs on a regular basis. ‘I have toast, sandwiches, pumpkin waffles, bananas, apples, or cinnamon raisin bagels with organic cream cheese for the morning,’ she adds in a Woman’s health fridge tour, explaining her typical diet. We can’t help but agree with her because protein is such an important macronutrient for our bodies. JM, please spread the news!
Kate Hudson consumes food five times a day
Kate Hudson is the founder of Fabletics and regularly practices yoga (together with her little kid!). and because to a healthy, well-balanced diet, she is in such good shape. The former cover girl told WH that she eats five times a day, starting with a celery juice in the morning, then a protein drink, oats, an açai bowl, or eggs. (Hands up who else is starving for breakfast food?)
Hudson eats largely plant-based meals the remainder of the day – think squash and zucchini noodles – with the occasional addition of chicken, fish, or steak.
Chrissy Teigen follows the mantra “everything in moderation.”
Teigen, a well-known Instagram and Twitter user, is a true foodie, as well as a chef and author of several cookbooks. The actress, who prides herself on comfortable dishes prepared with natural ingredients, can be found whipping up a tonne of homemade pasta, fish, and baked goodies for her household. Everything in moderation, including moderation, appears to be her approach to good eating. That appeals to us. A lot.
Teigen confesses that her ‘family is not genetically thin—we gain weight quickly—but I know that if I’m active enough and eat enough protein, I can enjoy a glass of champagne whenever I want one.’ CT, I couldn’t agree with you more.
Rebel Wilson is an example of a well-balanced existence
Rebel Wilson‘s road to better health has been one of the biggest breakthroughs of 2020 — the Sydney-born actress set a goal in January to be in the best shape of her life, and she has achieved it. Wilson is a tribute to hard effort and devotion, from difficult workouts with her trainer Jono Castano to walking more and reportedly embracing the Mayr Method diet.
Among all of that excellent stuff, she’s developed another habit that’s helped her stay on track: balance. Wilson, who posted a funny and humorous boomerang to her Instagram account, says she likes alternating between weekly bubble baths and sweet goodies. She clearly knows a thing or two about making things work in the long run, and we’re all for it! Reb G’wan.
Tracee Ellis Ross relishes her food
Tracee Ellis Ross is unrivaled in her field. Seeking joy is an important element of her eating protocol, as evidenced by her effusive, effervescent attitude and her remarkable beauty looks. In an interview with People last year, she declared, ‘I eat with the same mentality that I live with: joyously!’
Ellis Ross eats a lot of green vegetables, fruits, healthy fats, and protein because it makes her feel good from the inside out. Of course, there’s the occasional treat as well. What’s her go-to? Olives and crisps. Winner.
Halle Berry avoids sugar and ‘regular’ wine
Halle Berry described herself as “sugared-up all the time” before being diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 22. Her go-to breakfasts and snacks were cereals like Lucky Charms or Cocoa Puffs, as well as candy bars.
‘However, after my results came out, it was like a complete switchover,’ she told WH. ‘Because my health was at stake, I went gave up on my sugary habits.’ Candy, sweets, and even fruits that have a lot of sugar in them were thrown out the window. It was not easy at first. I’d spent most of my life relying on sugar, and when I stopped, I got really bad migraines and mood swings.’
Berry’s diet now consists primarily of good fats and low-carb alternatives to help her manage her diabetes and feel “as healthy as possible.” We love seeing women do what makes them happy, and Berry has her routine down well.
Jada Pinkett Smith neglects the sauce
We’re all for celebrities disclosing what they do to stay healthy, but what about the things they purposefully don’t do? Since the early 1990s, Pinkett Smith has avoided alcohol as part of her wellness regimen.
