This Exact Eating Plan Helped Kate Hudson Lose Weight During Lockdown

The actor's comprehensive plan targets not only her physical health, but her mental wellbeing, too.

Kate Hudson has never been shy about sharing her weight fluctuations with fans. After her first pregnancy with son Ryder, now 16, Hudson admitted to having gotten up to 200 pounds; following the birth of daughter Rani, now 2, she stepped on the scale for her Instagram stories, telling followers she was eager to lose 25 pounds. And now, the actor reveals she's finally found an eating plan that's allowed her to reach both her weight loss and fitness goals—amid a pandemic, no less.

In a new interview with Women's Health, Hudson reveals that WW (formerly Weight Watchers), for which she serves as an ambassador, has allowed her to transform not only her body, but her relationship with food. "I make beautiful meals that have no points, then I can indulge," she explained. "I'll do a whole day eating amazing Zero Point foods [like chicken and leafy greens], then I have wine and ice cream."

That's not the only change Hudson has made in pursuit of a healthier life, however. Read on to discover which other changes to her wellness routine have helped aid Hudson's weight loss. And for more celebrity transformations, James Corden Lost 16 Pounds in Less Than Two Months By Doing This.

While WW may have guided Hudson to make healthier decisions in terms of her food, she's also incorporated intermittent fasting as a means of shedding weight. In her Women's Health interview, Hudson admitted to typically drinking only celery juice, coffee, or tea in the morning, then waiting until 11 or 11:30 a.m. to start eating.

With three kids at home amid a pandemic, taking long trips to the gym isn't exactly possible for Hudson, who says she's not a "crazy workout person" anyway. Instead, she opts to take classes from home while her kids are otherwise occupied, with Pilates and Tracy Anderson Method routines numbering among her favorite workouts.

It's not just solo workouts that keep Hudson fit, however. She reveals that she's managed to stay connected with her mom, Goldie Hawn, during the pandemic by participating in outdoor activities together, including walks or bike rides. "It's about doing the things you love, eating the things you want to, exercising and not feeling like you need to [push yourself] for two hours in a hot room. You can just take a nice walk and still be healthy," she tells Women's Health.

She meditates.

Hudson also revealed to Women's Health that she's made meditation a priority to benefit both her mental and physical wellbeing.

In fact, in a 2017 essay on the Fabletics blog, Hudson revealed that daily meditation had completely changed her outlook on life. "When I [meditate], I can feel the difference right away. I feel myself becoming calmer, more centered and clearer-headed," she wrote. "Meditation also made me realize that there are times when I thought I had a grasp on what was going on with myself internally, then I meditated and found that my body was telling me something different."
