She Eats Like This
"For me, eating clean always changes," Hudgens once told the Cut. "Through the holidays of course, you kind of let go and just eat whatever you want because it's fun and you're enjoying life, but after the holidays I feel like everyone needs to get back on track, myself included. I went and saw a nutritionist and I found the best way of eat for me is a high-fat, high-protein, high-green salad. No carbs, no dairy, and no sugar. In the beginning it was really rough because not having any sort of grains is tough, but as I continued to stick with it I found my energy levels flew through the roof. I had no dips of energy in the day. I felt super focused, super clear. It felt really good, especially in my line of work where you're doing such long days, I need my energy."
This is Her Secret Wellness Hack
"Just drinking a lot of water. It's something that's so easy to forget about but when I'm tired, I know I'm dehydrated, and when my skin's not great, I know I'm dehydrated. It's just so important to drink a ton of water," she told the Cut.
She Loves Class Fitness
"I'm the type of person that needs to be in a class," Vanessa told PopSugar. "I need someone telling me what to do, and I love being in a group environment because I'm very competitive, so it pushes me to work harder than I would if I was by myself." Maybe that's why she loves SoulCycle so much: "Put me on a bike in a room with loud music, and I'm happy," she said to Women's Health. "It's like dancing without the stress of worrying if you look good."
She Eats This Superfood
"I need high fats," Hudgens explained to WH. "If I'm not getting enough, my body holds on to calories. We've been trained to think that fats are bad, but they're so good—a source of energy and sustenance that keeps you going through the day. That's the only way I can not eat carbs."
She Trains at the Dogpound
"Victoria's Secret models and celebrities like Hugh Jackman, Ashley Graham, and Ansel Elgort have exercised at Dogpound, but given the exclusivity and price tag associated with being a member there (one 60-minute personal training session is at least $200), most people don't get a full picture of what goes on behind the scenes," reports Insider. Hudgens has provided some sneak peeks, sharing videos from her workouts.
She Knows It'll Take Time
"You will always have the power to do something. Sometimes it will take a little longer…but if you honestly have a goal, you can do it," she revealed in her cover story for Women's Health. "You just need to figure out the right way to get there."
