Kate Hudson shows off her rock hard abs on the cover of Shape magazine‘s November 2013 issue.
Here is what the 34-year-old actress had to share with the mag in some quotes provided exclusively to JustJared.com.
On having to watch what she eats: “I remember a few years ago I needed to lose some weight but just couldn’t drop these 15 pounds. My diet was a lot of raw foods and I thought, ‘Why am I so bloated?’ Turns out I was eating about 3,500 calories a day because I was constantly snacking on cashews! I don’t care how many people say it’s ‘good fat,’ that really got me.”
On how she was able to lose the extra pounds: “Counting calories! I got that app My Fitness Pal and kept track of everything I ate. Normally I’m at about 1,800 calories per day, but when I want to drop a few pounds I stick to 1,500. It’s the only way to do it. I have to be vigilant.”
