The 36-year-old actress shows off her incredible figure in a new photoshoot forSelf magazine, rocking a bikini-style workout ensemble. Flaunting her flawless abs and toned arms and thighs, dare we say Kate has the best body in Hollywood?
Kate talks to the magazine about her exercise and diet routine, which she goes into more detail about in her upcoming book, Pretty Happy: Healthy Ways to Love Your Body, out Feb. 16. The mother-of-two says the key to her own results has been constantly switching it up when it comes to her fitness methods.
"I'll do Tracy Anderson, I'll do Body by Simone, I do everything," Hudson says, also stressing that she loves to exercise outdoors and dance.
Although she does swear by pilates.
"Nothing, literally nothing, makes me feel like I'm back to my body more than pilates," Kate admits. "I'll travel, and I’ll go for a run or I'll Spin. But when I go home and get on the reformer or the Cadillac, my body immediately goes back. I can see an instant shift."
Obviously, this level of fitness takes dedication.
"I'm one of those people who, it'll be early in the morning and I'll be in a robe getting my hair done, and I'll use my Hot5 app -- and do push-ups for five minutes!" she says.
When it comes to her diet, Kate aims for five small meals a day, sticking to unprocessed and plant-based foods. After breakfast, she says she usually has a post-workout protein shake, a salad for lunch, and a late-afternoon snack before dinner.
"I've pretty much cut meat out," Kate shares. "I don't remember the last time I ate a steak."
And breakfast is the most important meal of her day -- even though she doesn't always have the appetite for it.
"The hardest thing for me is eating right when I get up, because I don't like to. I'm not one of those people who wakes up hungry," she explains. "I wake up and I want coffee and even a green juice, but everybody says you've got to eat something, even if it's little. So that's sort of the hardest, but I realize that when I do, I eat less during the day or late at night."
Of course, Kate does indulge every once in a while.
"If I want to go out and eat at a restaurant with amazing food, I'll do that, like, once a week, where I’m not thinking about it," she says. "I want to indulge! I want to do things that are not necessarily healthy sometimes."
… But we wouldn't know that based on her sick bod.
Nick Jonas recently made headlines, when he talked about the rumors that he and Kate are hooking up.
"Out of my best effort to respect her and her privacy, I'm not going to say if we had sex or not. But we did have a beautiful connection," Nick, 23, told Complex. "We had an unbelievable connection as two humans who just admire things about each other, and see something in each other that's beautiful."
