It's that time of the year again — the weather is getting warmer, and summer bodies are in the works. There's no better time than now to invite a fresh perspective and adapt to changes that are good for the body and mind.
From self-care to exercise and well-disciplined diets, check out these celeb-approved fitness tips to get your best body this season.
Don't starve yourself! Jennifer Lopez, 51, avoids overindulging by keeping healthy noshing options on hand. "I always carry fruit and veggies with me to give me something to snack on between meals," said the Hustlers star, who also sticks to organic options.
Kate Hudson, 41, says having a support system keeps her on-point. "Your community — no matter who it is — can help you find balance," said the fitness fanatic (she works out for at least a half-hour every day), who gets moving with her mom, Goldie Hawn. "Don't expect yourself to be a super-human! It's just not possible."
WALK IT OFF
To lose the 100 pounds she gained while pregnant with her daughter Birdie in 2019, Jessica Simpson, 40, took baby steps — literally. Trainer Harley Pasternak had her start her journey with 6,000 steps a day and gradually upped it to 14,000. "It's something social she can do with her kids," he explained.
Kourtney Kardashian believes eating less later in the day helps her stay slim. "[For dinner,] I love fresh and simple soups," revealed the 41-year-old reality star, who counts asparagus and beet varieties as her faves.
SET A GOAL
Aussie actress Rebel Wilson — who recently lost 55 pounds by walking and ditching fast food — says having a target in mind helped keep her motivated. "Even though it's not about a number, it's about being healthy, I needed a tangible measurement," said the 40-year-old.
Jenna Dewan, 40, had to think outside the box when she set out to get back in shape after having her second child last March. She did Pilates classes via Zoom three to four days a week (occasionally setting up in her "dirty garage"!) and fit in some booty-shaking sessions whenever she could. "I'm always dancing," she's said, "even in the kitchen!"
BE PRO PROTEIN
Kim Kardashian knows how filling protein can be, so she makes sure to have at least six ounces with each meal, including breakfast. "I'll usually have scrambled eggs or oatmeal, or a protein shake with fruit," the newly single 40-year-old once revealed.
Tiffany Haddish lost 40 pounds during quarantine — and another 10 doing Luther Freeman's 30 Day Transformation program in December — by exercising daily and revamping her diet. "Nutrition is everything," revealed the Like A Boss actress, 41, who loads up on veggies and protein. "I've been eating way more vegetables and just really putting in the work."
Spring is the perfect time to try something new and get out of that comfort zone. "You have to shake it up," said Jennifer Aniston, 52, who alternates between yoga, boxing, interval training on the elliptical and Rise Nation classes.
START A DIARY
She's not only jotting down lyrics! Country superstar Carrie Underwood has said she likes to record everything she eats because it keeps her accountable. "I've kept a food journal forever," the singer, 37, revealed. "[It] helps me make better choices and pay attention to what I'm eating."
