Vanessa Hudgens Shows Off Fit Bod in New Selfie
Vanessa Hudgens is showing off her fit body in a bathing suit. In a new social media post the newlywed flaunts her incredibly toned figure in a swimsuit while posing poolside. "A lil sunshine is always good for the soul," she captioned the Instagram snap, driving her followers wild. "The body is bodying," one of them commented. "You are such a queen," added another. How does the High School Musical alum approach diet and fitness? Celebwell rounded up some of her top lifestyle habits.
No Processed Food
Vanessa's diet is clean. She avoids processed food and sticks to whole and healthy options. "My overall food philosophy is, if it's real, I'll eat it," she told Shape. "Many things are processed and contain chemicals and ingredients I can't pronounce. I want real food." This means no junk food, candy, or fast food.
Hudgens has supported intermittent fasting for years. When she is following the time restricted eating plan she feasts between noon and 6 p.m. and fasts for the remaining 18. "I've been intermittent fasting a lot, because for me, I love pasta, I love pizza, and when I'm not eating carbs I feel like a little piece of me dies," she told People. "Intermittent fasting is great, because when I am fasting — those first two weeks are definitely rough, I'm not going to lie, but after that I feel more grounded and powerful in my workouts. And I get the nutrients that I need when I eat, but then I also eat what I want."
Vanessa goes "back and forth" between intermittent fasting and keto. However, she tries to avoid most carbohydrates and fuels up with fats most of the time. "It's great," she told People. "If you have the right ingredients to keep you on track, I think it's amazing. People a lot of times think of fats in diets as a negative thing, and when you're doing keto it's a very positive thing. I'm always making sure I'm getting those healthy fats in, so I eat a LOT of almond butter. You feel really energetic and supported on the keto diet."
Lots of Exercise
Vanessa is "basically always working out," she told People. "I feel like I've kind of found a recipe for my body that works," she says. "It's SoulCycle for cardio, to keep my heart healthy. It's Pilates for lengthening, leaning and toning. And yoga for my mental health." She also lifts heavy weights. "My fitness has taken a turn. Cardio has been put on the back burner, and I'm very OK with that," Hudgens recently told Shape. "The things that have become the most important are balance and mental health." She does a lot of weight and strength training at The Dogpound gym, which she is "obsessed with."
Hudgens also takes probiotics, recently partnering with supplement wellness brand Ritual, after incorporating its best-selling Synbiotic+ into her routine. "I'm always traveling and moving around and on the go, and a big proportion of your immune system's actually in your GI tract," she told People. "So I was like, 'Okay, I'm going to prioritize this and make sure that taking care of my gut is actually going to help me in a big way, whether that's with digestion or with boosting my immune system.' And Ritual does exactly that."
