In a video for Harper's Bazaar, Hudson revealed that she waits to eat breakfast, and begins her day with water, then celery juice. "I do not eat first thing in the morning," she says. "If anybody does celery juice on an empty stomach they know why," she joked. "Cause it's a joyous morning activity."


She Avoids Dairy


Hudson told Harper's Bazaar that she loves ice cream, "My late night snack is always going to be in the ice cream department." However, the ice cream Hudson wants is dairy free. "As much as I'd love it to be like an old school Haagen-Dazs, they do great oat milk ice creams now. So I try to stay non-dairy because it's a little bit better for me. And mint chip I love because it's refreshing. But I really like a dulce de leche type … with chocolate chips."

Hudson makes sure that she works out every day, no matter how busy she gets, or what time she's exercising. "I always try to find at least a half-hour to work out. In fact, today I didn't work out and it's getting late. And I'll still find time to work out," she said to Harper's Bazaar.


She Surrounds Herself With Support

Hudson told E! News that a supportive community is important to her wellness journey. "I've always said that community is essential to wellness, that's why Fabletics is a community, that's why I've partnered with WW, which has an amazing community of members who support each other," she says. "Your community—no matter who it is—can help you find balance! Don't expect yourself to be a super-human! It's just not possible."
