She Intermittent Fasts

When it comes to her diet, Burke says that she tries to eat as healthy as she can, and practices this form of eating. "I intermittent fast, so I don't eat breakfast," Burke told HollywoodLife. "I'll wake up and do coffee or a black tea. Sometimes I do bulletproof coffee, where I'll put in the butter and the heavy cream, which I think is really good." "Intermittent fasting currently is a popular trend in dieting. There are several fasting methods people employ for weight loss. Some dieters decrease the amount of time they eat each day to, for example, only six hours in a 24-hour period. Others fast every other day. Another approach is called the 5:2 diet, which involves gradually decreasing daily calories to the point that you're only consuming 500 calories a day for two days each week," says the Mayo Clinic.


She Eats Healthy Fats


Burke tells HollywoodLife that she makes sure to incorporate a lot of healthy fats into her daily diet. "We need fat, it's all the things that we were trained not to do that really feed our brain and our skin, our hair. I do eat a lot of fat but I am pretty conscious of what I eat, I don't eat processed food really at all."  Fill yourself up with lean proteins, vegetables, fruits, and healthy fats like olive, canola, avocado and walnut oils, plant-fat rich foods like avocados and olives, and nut and seed butters like peanut butter, almond butter and tahini. 


She Does Quick, But Intense At-Home Workouts

Burke is a wellness maven, and she even has her own workout app, Brooke Burke Body. She tells HollywoodLife that her app is based on the workouts she does at home. She also says that she does a lot of quick, intense at-home workouts, and she no longer has to go to the gym. "I started my fitness app a year and a half ago. You can do 10 minute workouts, which I know sounds silly but you can really do 10, 15 minute, 20 minute workouts, you can decide what you want to do and you work out intense, you get an after burn. The days you go into the gym spending an hour in there, for me are long gone. I feel like I am in better shape in my 40s than I was before. It is just understanding the body."


She Stays Hydrated

Burke tells HollywoodLife that one of her biggest health and wellness secrets is staying hydrated each day. She says that she always makes sure to drink enough water, and carries it with her at all times. "I drink water all the time, I have water in my car, water by my bed, water bottle in my purse, always. I just think that we need it."


She Eats Healthy


Burke told HollywoodLife what her typical meals look like. She says that she tries to eat as healthy as she can, and eats a variety of different foods. "It depends on my schedule but when you are intermittent fasting life gets really simple because you are really only doing two meals a day and if I need to snack, I snack, but I kind of eat consciously, so I'll do fish, lean protein a lot of soups, lots of vegetables, I love spicy food, avocados, olive oil, a lot of nuts. I eat a lot of macadamia nuts, which are super fatty. I always have a little snack packs in my car. A typical dinner could be a filet mignon, a salad and grilled vegetables. I eat a lot of sushi. I love Mexican food."


She Believes In Moderation

Burke tells HollywoodLife that she believes in moderation. She says that she isn't afraid to enjoy carbs and takeout once in a while. "I'm not mad at rice, and I'm not that obsessed either. I give myself room so everything is in moderation."


She Works Out, And Takes Breaks

When it comes to working out, Burke says that she gets moving regularly. However, she also says that she makes time to rest and recover each week. "I work out five times a week and those other two days I relax," she told FOX News. "It's important to have down time to collect yourself and give yourself a break. On your days off, just take a stroll in your neighborhood, enjoy it."
