She Starts Each Day with Hot Water and Lemon

Julianne drinks hot lemon water in the the morning. "This is how I start my morning every. single. day," she explained in an Instagram video. "Having a strong morning routine gives me a sense of stability and puts my mind at ease knowing that I'm waking up, cleansing my body and committing to my wellness." She added to Harper's Bazaar that she makes the drink the night before, which "usually consists of lukewarm temperature water with half of a lemon—and sitting overnight, really getting all of those juices flushed out in there."


She Drinks Green Juice


Hough is one of the many stars who swear by green juice. "I usually I find a way to do some sort of celery juice, or something that also gives me a little bit of sugar before I go do a quick workout," she said. "Or I'll do like, amino acids [vitamins] or something like that to give me that support, that energy that I'm looking for." Her go-to recipe? "I usually like it a little sweeter, less bitter, so I put in a green apple, some spinach, kale. Again, if I want it sweeter, I'll put some carrots in. But I love ginger, and lemon too, so I'll put that in," she told Elle in 2016. "Cucumber, celery, anything green, really. Sometimes I'll add beets too, depending on my mood. And then I'll go work out, it just depends."


She Stays Away From Gluten and Animal Products

Hough maintains a vegan and gluten-free diet.  "I sound so L.A. right now," she said in a "What I Eat in a Day" video with Harper's Bazaar, "but it's because my body needs it. Because trust me, do I love flour, I love sugar, I love cookies, I love all the things. But I'm really just trying to focus on my health from the inside out."


She Indulges

Hough has a few guilty pleasures and allows herself to indulge.  "If I could give you any words of encouragement with what you eat, it's enjoy yourself, everything in moderation, and if you love your body and love what you're putting into your body, your body's gonna know," she told Harper's Bazaar. "So if you're gonna have a drink, if you're gonna have a yummy sweet tooth, enjoy it. Take the pleasure in it."


She Mixes Up Her Workouts

Hough mixes up her workouts. "I love shocking my body by doing different things," she said, per Delish. "I go through different waves of where I'm at, personally and mentally. Sometimes, I'm more relaxed, doing yoga and low-intensity things about two or three times a week. Usually, I'm like a five-to-six-times-a-week person, and it's very high intensity." She also does spinning, hikes, personal training sessions, and her own workout, KINRGY. 


She Drinks A LOT of Water

"I have this water bottle that goes everywhere with me," Julianne said, according to Delish. "Every night, before bed, I put ice in it and fill it to the top — it holds 40 ounces of water — and I drink it throughout the night. Not all of it, obviously, but I have to have cold water before I go to bed."
