"Live the Best Lifestyle for Yourself"

In a recent interview with People, Bebe addressed the constant commentary about her body. "You don't know what somebody's going through or what their healthy body is. We need to stop judging people. I can't get mad because I am in the public eye, but it is hurtful. It does hurt my feelings, and it is discouraging because I'm always trying to be the best me, but I do struggle with my eating and stuff like that. It gets hard sometimes because like I said, a b**** likes to eat. I've tried every diet, and it just comes down to trying to live the best healthy lifestyle for yourself," she said.

Bebe starts with a healthy diet, explaining that she feels better when she eats healthier. "When I have a bad week of eating, I feel so nasty — like when I eat tons of chips or croissants and whatever," she told People. She also promotes hydration. "When I eat healthier and I drink more water and then I do even a little exercising or just try to live a little bit more actively, I feel so much better: I feel so much healthier, I feel so much sexier, and it's for myself. So I feel like that's a really important thing for me, to stay active and eat well." She also enjoys cooking. "I absolutely love hosting dinner parties for my friends," she told Us. "I enjoy cooking Italian dishes. Penne alla vodka is my [specialty]!" Another one of her got-to dishes? "I love baking banana bread."


Fight It Out


One of Bebe's favorite ways to stay fit? "I love boxing and have started training a lot during the pandemic," she told Us. "This kind of boxing has many health benefits, because it constantly requires you to think, change your position, and change your posture," physical therapist Linda Arslanian, director of rehabilitation services at Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women's hospital tells Harvard Health."You're swinging your arms, moving the muscles of your arms and shoulders, increasing your upper-body strength. And when you're in the boxer crouch with a wide stance, with your knees slightly bent, you're strengthening your core muscles, back, and legs."


Don't Deprive Yourself

"I don't deprive myself. I just don't think that's fun," Bebe told Health. Instead, she has a moderate approach to diet. "I can be very clean. When I try to be healthier, it's no bread; no cheese or dairy, except in coffee; no sauces. My ultimate lunch: I'll order a salad with chicken and no croutons and a side of sweet potato fries. That's my balance. People are like, 'Pizza's bad.' Pizza's not bad if you have one slice with a healthy salad on the side! Or people will tell you, 'You can't eat bananas or grapes or watermelon—it's way too much sugar!' Stop right now. Seriously, just stop."


Mix Up Your Workouts

"I work out with my trainer Jeanette [Jenkins]; we change it up," Bebe told Health. "One day we'll do yoga; one day we'll do Pilates. We can run one day or box, which is my favorite. When I go to different places, I'll try to run or go to the gym—or I'll take cycling classes or boxing classes wherever I am. And I deal with my anxiety by working out. I can get out my aggression or anything I'm feeling I just want to get rid of. I also see my therapist. It's very helpful to talk to somebody."
