‘I Eat Wrong And Smoked For Years’: Kate Hudson Wants You To Forgive Your Health ‘Mistakes’

If there’s one thing Kate Hudson wants us to do when it comes to fitness and wellbeing in 2024, it’s stop trying to do it all at once.

“Look, I’m very lucky to have access to professionals and nutritionists,” the Knives Out actor told Talk News Uk. “But when I think about what helps me maintain habits over the long term, it’s the small, manageable steps that make the biggest difference.”

It’s refreshing to hear a Hollywood star admit they’ve had help with their wellbeing – but despite the support around her, you only have to look at Kate’s non-acting CV to see her fitness and health. very important for the Golden Globe winner.

There’s her activewear line Fabletics, her supplement brand InBloom (God bless a collagen blend to save our skin) and now, a partnership with MyFitnessPal, which is Talk News Uk’s way of talking to Kate about her own routine at an exclusive UK event.

“We put a lot of pressure on ourselves to be able to do everything perfectly – we just need to think realistically about our goals in everyday life,” he explains.


“Maybe today you will make lunch instead of buying it at the store, maybe you will walk to work instead of taking the bus. It’s all about cutting out the small stuff and not destroying ourselves in an effort to meet every need.”

Her step-by-step ethos is exactly like the Small Steps, Big Wins plan (created with her personal fitness trainer Brian Nguyen) on the MyFitnessPal app.

Designed to create sustainable, lifelong habits, this free seven-day plan introduces seven small changes that can have a big impact on long-term health goals across topics like protein, sugar, hydration, and more.

And it’s safe to say that Kate personally knows the benefits of monitoring her fitness and health habits better than anyone.

“The fuel we put into our bodies can truly change your life and I have been using MyFitnessPal since my health journey began several years ago – I remember I started using it because I had quit smoking and was trying to eat healthier.

“But despite my best efforts, I wasn’t feeling well and once I started tracking, I realized I wasn’t eating enough of the right foods. Protein is a big old lesson for me. But doesn’t that show how knowledge is power?” he says.

“When we understand our food, we just make different choices – and that food has to be accessible. I love that MyFitnessPal is free and our plans are free.”

As Kate explained to us, she was fed up with people feeling like they had to “starve themselves,” hoping that she could be part of the conversation about learning more about balance.

“I just want people to have the best information – instead of not eating, we need to understand what we eat. What I really enjoy now is the science behind food – how do I keep my heart happy, what should I eat to better my workouts? This is much more beneficial than just focusing on weight loss and being afraid to talk about food.”

Another big pressure that Kate doesn’t like? The whole “New Year, New Me” vibe.

“My goal started last year – transforming your health and wellbeing shouldn’t just be a New Year’s thing, you can start at any time, taking the pressure off that your only chance is starting next year,” she said.

“And hey, I’m not perfect! I experienced many failures on my wellness journey – hello, suicide by smoking? “I’ve also tried every kind of diet you can imagine – you don’t even want to know how many nuts I was eating at one point because it was ‘it’ at the time, it’s no surprise I wasn’t feeling well,” Kate added while laughing.

“The important thing is that I don’t see this as a mistake – it’s called a journey for a reason.”
