Embrace Your Body
Bebe is always open about her struggles with self-love, encouraging fans to embrace their bodies. "I wanted to show you what I really look like. Yes I got thighs. Yes I got" a backside. "But here's what I … look like in my bathing suit. Here's my body. No filters, okay?," she said in a recent Instagram story. "It's just really hard because I find it hard to love myself sometimes and like when you see yourself looking" bad "it's like, yes I got stretch marks. Let me show you. I got stretch marks. I got cellulite, all of the above."
You Don't Need to Go Under the Knife
Bebe has revealed that she hasn't gotten any work done. "I don't do surgery. I've never touched my body. Never done lipo[suction], never done any of that stuff," she said. "I'm trying to be healthy and respect what God gave me," she said in the same video. "And I like to eat and I also take medicine that makes it really hard for me to lose weight."
"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. "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."
Cook with Love
Bebe loves 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." Just be sure your pasta sauce is free from added sugars. Because sugar is in everything—especially foods it doesn't belong in, like bread, peanut butter, pasta sauce, salad dressing and oatmeal.
Perk Up with Caffeine
Bebe loves a few caffeine-infused drinks. "I have at least three coffees a day," she told Us. "My favorite drink when I go out is an Arnold Palmer."
Bebe does a variety of workouts, including boxing. "I love boxing and have started training a lot during the pandemic," she told Us.
Don't Deprive Yourself
"I don't deprive myself. I just don't think that's fun," Bebe told Health. "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."
Switch 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."
