Madelyn Cline’s Diet
Cline has been honest about her struggles with an eating disorder she developed as a teen. She would exercise obsessively and not eat, which led to a downward spiral health-wise. Her mother was instrumental in helping her tackle the issue, and she is on a better track today. She eats a plant-based diet and makes sure to get enough protein and vitamins to fuel her busy days. She drinks plenty of water to stay hydrated.
- Medium Fat 30% 30%
- Medium Carb 30% 30%
- Medium Protein 40% 40%
Working to launch her acting career, Cline became obsessed with looking a certain way. She overexercised and ate very little to try to achieve an impossible body image.
Mom to the Rescue
Cline says her mother was the one who worked with her and helped her to see that her choices were not healthy ones, and to see herself in a more positive light.
These days, Cline follows a vegan diet, and she even got her ex Chase Stokes into plant-based eating. He said he noticed he had more energy by cutting out meat.
No Juice Cleanses, Thanks
Cline says she once tried a juice cleanse but it left her cranky.
What to Eat
What to Avoid
Not getting enough calories
Cline on her Eating Disorder
I started cutting calories. I would eat 6 almonds for breakfast because I didn’t want to counteract the cardio I just did.
Cline on the dangers of her Eating Disorder
It turned into not feeding…my body what it needed when I was working out so much.
Cline on the effects of her Eating Disorder
I was harming myself and starving myself in the process of trying to achieve [a certain look].
Cline on Juice Cleanses
I thought it was a good idea. I was miserable. I wanted food…Bottom line is I don’t think I will ever do that again.
Cline on Mental Health
Self-love is a constant journey.
Madelyn Cline‘s Workout Routine
Cline began training in dance and ballet as a young girl as part of her plan to make it in show biz.
As a teenager, Cline developed the bad habit of overexercising trying to achieve an impossible body ideal. She’d get up early and work out hard, repeat several times a day, and not eat much.
These days, Cline takes a much healthier approach to fitness. She does about 20-30 minutes of cardio every day, some weight training, core exercises and some quick HIIT circuits, including burpees, jumping jacks and squats.
A Madelyn Cline Routine
Cardio: 20-30 min on treadmill
Do 3 rounds of 45 seconds on/15 seconds rest of each of the following:
Be active every day but don’t overdo it.
Cline on her Exercise Obsession
I was around 16 when I started working out a lot. I would wake up every morning at 5 am and I would work out for 30 minutes.
Cline on Overdoing it
It was super rigorous cardio every day.
Cline on her Unhealthy goal
I worked out multiple times a day. All I knew was that I wasn’t achieving a particular body image, and so I was angry.
Cline on her Self-image Today
I like my curves. I like my hips, and after a while, I started to love my body. I became so much happier.
Madelyn Cline’s Supplements
Cline is keeping quiet about any supplements she might be taking, so below are options that may benefit anyone following a similar diet.
Madelyn Cline‘s Lifestyle
Cline says one thing she does to calm herself is to take a few minutes to meditate, and that it has a really positive effect on her mood.
Cline worked at a horse stable when she was a teen, mucking out stalls and feeding the horses. Even though it was hard work and paid peanuts, she says she loved working with the animals and looks back on that time fondly.
Big Risk, Big Reward
Cline enrolled at Coastal Carolina University but didn’t stick around. She says she didn’t like school, and the siren call of Hollywood was too strong to resist.
Best Summers Ever
Rather than hitting the beach, starting at age 10, Cline spent her childhood summers in New York City working as a model and hunting down commercial gigs. She says she loved it, and it was an easy transition to acting as she got older.
Never Been There
Despite growing up in South Carolina and working on Outer Banks, Cline has never been to the real Outer Banks. The show is shot in various locations around South Carolina.
Cline says the lockdown wasn’t as lonely as it could have been because several of her castmates lived in the same building, and they got together to watch movies. Top pick: Harry Potter.
Serious About Skincare
Stars are just like us and get pimples too. Cline suffered from cystic acne for years and has shared her skincare routine online which includes benzoyl peroxide, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin C.
Cline on Meditation
I’ve been taking 5 minutes to sit by myself and meditate, and it’s definitely something I’m going to continue doing.
Cline on dropping out of College
I was completely miserable doing what would make other people happy.
Cline on taking a Chance on Hollywood
there’s something to be said for…being a little naive and just flying by the seat of your pants.
Cline on working during the Summer in NYC
I loved the city. I loved being on sets and being around other creatives.
Cline on Outer Banks
I will come back for as many seasons as they will have me. I love my job and there’s not a day that goes by that I’m not grateful for it.
Cline on Pimples
It’s obviously never fun to have stubborn acne onscreen, but at the end of the day, everyone gets pimples. Breakouts don’t diminish your beauty, baby.
