Blake Lively (born August 25, 1987) is an American actress.
Every morning, Blake starts the day with a large glass of water. This happens before she even reaches for a cup of coffee. It stimulates her digestion and helps her stay hydrated throughout the day.
She follows that glass of water up with a simple and standard breakfast of eggs, vegetables, and fruit.
She cooks her eggs in coconut oil which has tons of healthy fatty acids. The vegetables give her a much-needed dose of fiber to help her feel full and the fruit adds just enough healthy carbs and natural sugars to raise her energy levels.
Like breakfast, Blake makes sure to eat proteins, vegetables, and carbs at lunch every day. What she eats largely depends on her schedule and whether she’s at home or on-set.
If she’s at home, she cooks for herself and often enjoys wild-caught fish or pasture-raised chicken served alongside a salad and a small helping of rice or sweet potatoes. If she’s filming, she’ll grab a large salad or opt for sushi without the soy sauce.
The key to her meals is keeping her body properly fueled up for the day.
Dinner is often a repeat of lunch, and she has a cheat day every now and then. However, her trainer recommended that she follow the 80/20 diet which allows her to splurge on less healthy foods 20 percent of the time.
Her favourite cheat meals are pizza and pasta, but she stays on top of her workouts, so those small cheat meals don’t turn into major problem areas.
In an Instagram story post in July 2021, Blake thanked her trainers Don Saladino and Jenny Campion for ‘kicking my ass. And lats. And lots of other muscles I don’t know the name of.’
As to her specific regime? Saladino told Cosmopolitan in 2016 that Blake trains 5-6 times a week, spending between 30 and 75 minutes working out. Sessions include foam rolling, mobility work and the ‘Jump, throw, carry’ technique (10 jumps of any kind, such as squat jumps or star jumps; throw something 10 times; carry something weighted for 40–50 yards).
After that, days are broken down into ‘upper body, lower body, arms, and an interval day, with a mobility or accessory day after that,’ said Saladino.
‘I don’t drink. I’ve never tried a drug,’ the star revealed in her 2012 Allure cover story.
‘I don’t drink because I don’t like the effects of alcohol, but I like being a part of it,’ she told People magazine.
