Blake Lively’s Diet

Summary

Lively eats only wholesome, organic foods, and her meals consist of healthy fats like avocado and grass-fed butter, quality proteins such as organic beef, and complex carbs like sweet potatoes. She avoids ‘white’ processed foods like white sugar, white flour and table salt because these can all cause inflammation. To lose baby weight while filming Shallows, she ate 4 small meals a day consisting of protein, vegetable and slow-burning carbs. She does not count calories. Instead, she makes sure her metabolism burns efficiently. She loves to shop at farmers’ markets and cook for her family. Lively says she takes cooking classes every time she travels. She also makes a point of drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated.

Diet Details

\

Rise & Shine

Lively starts her day with a glass of water. For breakfast, she might have eggs cooked in coconut oil with veggies or oatmeal and fruit.

\

Fire Up That Metabolism

Lively’s trainer likes his clients to think of metabolism as a fire. Stoke it, and keep it burning all day long.

\

No Deprivation

Lively doesn’t believe in limiting her food choices, but because what she wants to eat is nutrient-dense, she is properly fueled and doesn’t feel tempted to overeat.

\

Digest This

Lively’s trainer says how well you digest food matters almost as much as what you’re eating for a slim, toned physique, as well as mood, energy and sleep.

\

80/20 Rule

Lively follows the 80/20 rule, meaning she eats properly 80% of the time, leaving her 20% to have fun and cut loose a little.

\

Quality Cheats

While her trainer strongly recommends healthy cheats such as organic burritos or dark chocolate, Lively’s faves are a chocolate soufflé and Patsy’s Pizza in East Harlem.

Lively on Clean Living

‘I don’t drink. I don’t do drugs. I grew up with the mindset that after work you go to dinner and watch a movie. I don’t want to go to a club and not wear panties.’

{

Lively on Cooking

‘I probably feel the most alive when I’m with my family and also when I’m cooking, and those normally coincide with each other.’

{

Lively on Cooking Classes

‘I find it’s the best way to get to know a culture. It’s what people bring to the family every day, what they break bread over. It’s a very intimate thing.’

Blake Lively’s Fitness Routine

Weekly Routine

Consistency Is Key

Lively makes a point of doing some form of exercise every single day. If she’s busy, traveling or with work, she’ll still find a way to squeeze in 10 minutes on the elliptical. But she doesn’t beat herself up if she misses a workout. She just gets back in the saddle the next day.

Tune In

Lively listens to her body, and her trainer, Don Saladino. If she’s had a rough night or not feeling her best, she doesn’t power through the pain. She throttles it back a little, and then when she feels better, she cranks it back up again.

Manage Stress

Lively gained a significant amount of weight during her pregnancies, which was scary for someone whose paycheck depends on her looks. But she didn’t panic and maintained a positive attitude, and got her shape back.

Daily Dose

Lively spends anywhere from a half-hour to more than an hour working out 5-6 days a week.

Roll Out the Kinks

Lively usually starts her routine with foam-rolling to loosen her muscles and then does several minutes of mobility work. After stretching, she’ll do a few minutes of jumping, throwing or carrying to get all of her muscles ready to go.

Targeted Practice

After her warm up, Lively’s workouts vary: some days are focused on upper body, others on lower body, or she might do interval training.

Blake Lively’s Lifestyle

Rest, Recover, Repeat

Along with hydration and nutrient-dense foods, Lively makes sure to get plenty of rest. A good night’s sleep helps burn fat, and makes the day run a lot smoother.

Simple Hair Secret

Lively says one of her mom’s hair tricks is to apply oil or mayo to the bottom half of her hair before showering to keep shampoo from drying it out.

Born To It

Lively scored the role of Bridget in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants without substantial references or even an audition. She simply walked in, dropped off her photo, and left.

Where’d You Go To School?

Lively had attended 13 different schools by the time she graduated high school.

Lively on her Alternate Career Choice

‘If I weren’t an actress, I’d be a chef. I’d love to open a restaurant.’

{

Lively on Privacy

‘My anonymity is something I treasure. Wanting to be an actor and wanting to be famous are different.’

{

Lively on Confidence

‘With acting, I think half of it is just acting confident. We stand on these red carpets and pose in these dresses, but we’re all only so confident. It doesn’t mean we think we’re great looking…It’s all a façade.’

{

Lively on Her Family

‘All my eggs are in one basket and it’s my family. That’s where my heart is.’

{

Lively on Bad Days

‘When I have bad days, I just eat lots of chocolate ice cream and dance to the ‘Lion King’ soundtrack. It’s really odd, but it’s true.’
