Ever wonder where 36-year-old bombshell Kate Hudson gets her love for all things fitness from? Well, the answer proves that there’s truth behind the phrase, “like mother, like daughter.”
Thursday night in Beverly Hills, Calif., Hudson’s mom and fellow blonde beauty, Goldie Hawn, stopped by the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability Gala, where she supported a worthy cause and dished on her healthy lifestyle. The 70-year-old actress—who still pumps iron, plays golf, goes running, and nails a jumping jack workout—has more secrets to her youthful lifestyle beyond her regular sweat sessions.
“Well, I don’t eat a lot. No. 1: I think we overeat. No. 2: Drink my green juice every day. I do a lot of juicing, I don’t put a lot of food in my stomach and I don’t mix my foods too much. So if I want to have, like, protein, I’ll just eat a bowl of lentils. I wont mix it with a bunch of stuff,” she told InStyle.
Food tips aside, pacing herself seems to be the ultimate answer. “I try to stay positive and be very, very active. I walk every day and I run and do all kinds of that. By the way, if I don’t have an hour, I’ll do 15-minute intervals. Actually, it’s a very good thing to do," she said. "So if you work out for 15 minutes, it’s really good for you. If you’re taxing yourself too much in an hour, you’re taxing a lot of things. You’re building hear but you’re also using heartbeats and you only have so many. So we really have to be aware of that.”
Now we know.
