She Starts With a Smoothie

"The normal morning when I'm not working consists of waking up, chugging a glass of water, eating some almond butter, brushing my teeth, and running over to a class, whether it's SoulCycle or Pilates or yoga. Then getting a smoothie afterward and coming back to get ready for my day," she told the Cut.


She Was Into High Fats

"I need high fats," Hudgens explained once to Women's Health. "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 Eats Well

"For me, eating clean always changes. 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," she told the Cut. "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."


This is Her Attitude About Her Body

"If I ever get to the point that I'm not happy with my body, I'll do something about it," she told Women's Health. "You will always have the power to do something. Sometimes it will take a little longer than you would like, and sometimes it may be a little more extreme. But if you honestly have a goal, you can do it. You just need to figure out the right way to get there."


Yes, She's Into SoulCycle

"I actually ride on the podium a lot of the time for a few of the teachers, so it's basically like me teaching the class, which is so much fun," she told the Cut. "I'm such a performer that I know that if I'm in front of the class, I'm going to push myself so much harder, which is good for me but I also think I have a lot of energy and it's fun to be able to inspire a class with that."
