7 Weight Loss Secrets From Zoë Kravitz for a Fit Body

This is what she does to stay fit and energized. 

Zoë Kravitz is something of a chameleon when it comes to her on-screen roles—from The Batman to Mad Max: Fury Road, she manages to make having a lithe yet muscular physique look effortless. The 34-year-old actress has an approach to health, wellness, and beauty that focuses on diet, exercise, and most important of all, happiness. Here's how Kravitz stays so fit, and what her wellness mantra is for her most fulfilling life.


Cardio and Squats

Kravitz has a simple yet effective approach to her fitness—she works out at home, and doesn't make it complicated. "I do simple cardio, and sit ups and squats," she says. She also loves visiting her favorite Korean spa in Los Angeles for self care.


Lots of Water and Vegetables


Kravitz focuses on a vegetable-heavy diet with room for the occasional treat. "Trying to drink enough water is such a huge thing," she says. "I really don't. Sometimes I'll realize it's five o'clock and I've had the tiniest glass of water. I try to go to the gym or at least walk and move my body around. I try eating well—making sure you're eating greens or steamed veggies, or stuff that doesn't have a lot of oil or chemicals. But if you want to go to McDonald's every once in a while, do it! But it's about clean food that hasn't been processed."


Hiking and Elliptical Machine


For Kravitz, working out is a form of self-care. "Working out is my alone time," she says. "Depending on where I am, I go on runs or hikes or do the elliptical at the gym. I don't get too fancy."


Personal Trainer Five Days a Week

Kravitz mostly likes to work out by herself, but used a trainer during the pandemic lockdowns. "I've been working out virtually with my trainer David Higgins five days a week," she says. "And it's actually been really great because it's been giving me some kind of structure because I do it at the same time and it also makes the weekends feel like a weekend because I don't workout on the weekends and it gives me just, oh, it's a different kind of a day."


Catwoman Training

Kravitz says her training regimen for her role as Catwoman in 2022 movie The Batman was hardcore. "It's pretty intense," she said at the time. "We started shooting two weeks ago, but before that I was in London for two months, just getting in shape, training, learning fights… I can fight now."


No Processed Foods


Kravitz enjoys a healthy, gut-friendly diet not just for health but for skincare. "[Facialist] Terri Lawton tells me food directly affects your skin," she says. "So does stress. Eat well and stay calm. Water, organic non-processed foods, supplements like fish oils for the skin, and probiotics for digestion."


Embracing Her Beauty

Kravitz has no interest in looking like everyone else when it comes to her physique and appearance. "To me, beauty is an attitude, you know?" she says. "When I see someone who is comfortable in their own skin and knows who they are, I think that's gorgeous. I've seen so many people who on paper are 'beautiful,' and there's just nothing behind the eyes—they're totally insecure, and all of a sudden, the beauty doesn't mean anything, and I don't find them beautiful anymore. That beauty lasts about two seconds."
