EMMA ROBERTS’ DIET

Emma likes to stick to a healthy, well-rounded diet. She doesn’t look at any food as off-limits, but she does eat with her body’s needs in mind.

For example, she doesn’t deprive herself of the occasional cupcake (even when she’s filming!), but she tries to enjoy treats rarely. Instead, most of her diet is full of vegetables, lean protein, and whole wheat grains.

Emma’s philosophy isn’t to say no to any food, but she doesn’t eat mindlessly either. She tries to stay in tune with her body and give it what it needs and wants.

WHAT EMMA EATS FOR BREAKFAST

Typically, Emma drinks a juice first thing in the morning. She likes to add in Spirit Dust from Moon Juice. Spirit Dust is a blend of reishi, ashwagandha, astragalus, mimosa bark, dan shen, longan berry, and goji. It is meant to help wake you up and brighten your mood.

Emma also loves iced coffee. She drinks it every day, even if it is cold outside! She says hot coffee doesn’t cut it for her in the same way.

If Emma has extra time or has the day off, she likes to eat traditional breakfast food in the morning. She favourite is eggs and bacon with a piece of toast.

WHAT EMMA EATS FOR LUNCH

Emma likes to eat a nutritious salad for lunch. Her go-to is a chopped salad with tomatoes, avocado, and grilled chicken. Simple but delicious!

WHAT EMMA EATS FOR DINNER

For dinner, Emma likes to have salmon, brown rice, and broccoli. This is a very filling meal that’s good for you, just make sure not to overcook your salmon :) Here’s my favourite healthy salmon recipe.

And when she’s not in the mod for fish, Emma likes to make turkey burgers. Lean protein all the way!

SNACKS AND TREATS

Emma admits that she’s a snacker. She loves eating seaweed, and she doesn’t know how she’d survive without chips and guacamole!

Cupcakes, donuts, and ice cream bring her joy, and she tries not to deprive herself too much. She’s been known to bring desserts and sweets to work to share with everybody on set!

EMMA ROBERTS’ WORKOUT ROUTINE

Emma Roberts does workouts that she enjoys and that give her the results that she wants. She doesn’t work out every single day, but she shows up to the gym and her fitness classes regularly. Emma is consistent with her efforts to stay in shape!

Her workouts are tough (seriously! I was amazed by the workout included below!). But she doesn’t do workouts that she hates. For example, she said she tried to get into running, but she really disliked it. She likes circuit training and pilates much more!

Here’s what she does:

FOCUS AREAS

Emma work with celebrity-trainer Andrea Orbeck. Together, they focus on working out three major parts of Emma’s body: her arms, abs, and butt.

Each workout session is one hour long, and Emma works out three times a week. Every time she works out, Emma makes sure to target each of these focus areas!

When Emma has a big role, she often will increase her workout amounts to nearly every day of the week.

EMMA’S EXACT WORKOUT

Emma’s workout combines cardio for fat loss with resistance exercises which helps her stay toned. Emma is naturally already quite slim and petite, and she seems to want to maintain a leaner frame. She doesn’t use heavy weights. She just uses the occasional dumbbell, resistance band, and ankle weights.

Emma emphasizes that she always warms up before her workouts and stretches after she’s done.

Here’s a sample workout that targets the entire body:

CIRCUIT 1

  • 15 repetitions of bicep curls
  • 6 repetitions of assisted pull-ups with a resistance band
  • Jump rope for 1 minute
  • Repeat this three times, and walk on the treadmill for 5 minutes.

CIRCUT 2

Emma uses 3-5 pound ankle weights during this circuit.

  • 20 repetitions of donkey kicks per leg
  • 10 repetitions of dumbbell deadlifts
  • 20 repetitions of rainbows per leg
  • Repeat this three times, and walk on the treadmill for 5 minutes.

CIRCUIT 3

  • 15 repetitions of squats
  • 8 repetitions of burpees
  • 8 repetitions of tricep pushups
  • Repeat 3 times, walk on the treadmill for 5 minutes, and cool down.

This workout will really be as challenging as you want it to be. Sometimes, Emma needs more cardio, so she’ll jump rope for an extra minute. Other times, she wants to really focus on tightening her butt, so she’ll do extra donkey kicks. Make it work for you and your fitness needs! :)

PILATES CLASSES

Emma also likes going to pilates classes when she has time. She goes to Body by Nonna in Hollywood, and she says she can see her body toning up after a few weeks of regular attendance.

She jokes that she always hopes to see her abs after she leaves the studio! I think a lot of us can relate! :)

Pilates can be a wonderful way to create lean muscles without getting too bulky. Some women I’ve talked to say reformer pilates caused them to bulk up a bit, but it really depends on you and your body type. If you want to try pilates, I suggest you go for it. You can start with this full-body pilates-inspired workout. :)

YOGA AND RELAXATION

Emma is really big into making time for yoga and other types of relaxation. She likes yoga because it helps her stretch out her muscles, but also because it forces her to have some calm in her life.

I’m a big fan of yoga too, especially when people do it alongside other training types. Emma’s right – yoga really does help the mind, not just the body. Yoga can:

  • Improve your focus.
  • Help you be more self-aware.
  • Calm your anxiety.

Emma says it is important to drown out the noise in life. She does this with yoga and by reading daily. For Emma, taking time for herself (without her phone!) helps her feel more confident and grounded.

BEING PRESENT IN LIFE

Emma’s been a movie star since she was a child. Now, as a woman in her mid-twenties, she has to figure out how to navigate living her life while in the public eye. I’m sure that isn’t easy!

For Emma, taking care of her whole self means eating well, exercising regularly, and carving out time to relax.

One thing I love about Emma is that she’s very in tune with her body and what she needs. She’s intentional about being physically, mentally, and emotionally healthy. She takes time to eat nutritious food, give herself the occasional treat, work out, and even read daily. This takes a lot of discipline and self-care!

I admire Emma’s hard work and positive approach to life. I hope you all liked learning more about this amazing actress too. :)

Thanks for reading!
