You Go, Girl!Kate Hudson Shares Her Diet and Exercise Secrets

Kate Hudson is revealing her diet and exercise secrets to staying fit at almost 40!

The How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days star — who looks absolutely stunning after giving birth to two kids — recently gushed her go-to workout is Pilates! “I was 19 when I discovered Pilates, and I’m still doing it,” Kate told Shape magazine. “It’s the workout my body really responds to. It’s all about alignment, elongating your spine, and strengthening your core. It makes me feel my strongest.”

“Nothing, literally nothing, makes me feel like I’m back to my body more than Pilates,” the 37-year-old continued. “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.”

Kate also revealed her famous mother, Goldie Hawn, has helped her stay in such great shape! “I was three-years old when my mom enrolled me in dance class, and I practiced intensely until I was about 14,” she said. “I was not a big fan of ballet, but she made me do it. Now I’m so grateful that she didn’t allow me to quit. It was the best thing she could have done for me. In dance, you’re constantly competing with yourself, and you’re only as good as your practice. It taught me discipline.”

“My mom has always been healthy, but she’s not a health nut,” she continued. “I’m the same way. I absolutely believe in enjoying my food, especially when I travel. I don’t eat a lot of meat when I’m home, but I can’t be in Germany and not eat the bratwurst. I just love it so much.”
