Hough maintains a gluten-free and vegan 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 Starts Her Days with a Glass of Lemon Water

Julianne Hough believes that a glass of warm lemon water every morning helps keep her balanced. "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 pre-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."


Green Juice Is Her Other Drink of Choice


Jules is one of the many celebrities who drink green juice. "I usually 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." One of her favorite green juice concoctions? "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."


Her Diet Is All About Moderation

Julianne allows herself to indulge, but within reason. "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."


Her Workout Is Inspired By Dance

Due to the fact she got her start as a dancer, it is no surprise that she works it into her fitness regiment. In fact, she even created her own dance-inspired workout, Kingry. "Dance continues to surprise me. Dance strengthens muscles that I didn't even know I had – physically, emotionally and energetically 💪🏼😊✨ I'm feeling so grateful for my daily #KINRGY practice which brings me strength and power – internally and externally! Connecting with the elements and moving intuitively is what it's all about! The more I move, the more I feel myself in #flow and fully expressed," she wrote in a recent Instagram post.
