During this time, Kaley’s career grew as she worked hard, but she also worked on keeping herself healthy and happy every day.
Here’s how she does it.
Kaley tries to keep her diet as healthy as she can whenever she can. This means eating tons of fresh fruits, vegetables, and fish throughout the week.
She finds it easiest when she sticks to a routine and eats more or less the same foods every day, changing things up by using different seasonings.
Kaley used to start her mornings with kid’s cereal. Her pantry was full of the stuff. But now, she prefers to have peanut butter on toast. She’s careful to choose peanut butter that’s low in sugar.
For Kaley, the carbs give her a much-needed boost of energy that helps prep for her morning workouts. The peanut butter helps her get plenty of plant-based protein to fuel her muscles and speed her recovery up.
For lunch, she’ll try to grab something simple. Most days, this involves eating half of a sandwich or a salad. Kaley doesn’t pack her meals with lean protein. Instead, she keeps it veg-heavy.
She’s a pescatarian and enjoys eating small amounts of fish like salmon on her salads or a vegetable sandwich piled high with leafy greens. She also tries to use whole-grain bread when she can.
For dinner, Kaley usually eats the same thing: fish with tons of fresh vegetables. The type of fish and veg she eats varies based on her mood and what’s available.
Typically, she’ll grill up a small filet and sauté seasonal veg or serve it alongside a salad. To add flavour, she’ll use fresh herbs like rosemary, thyme, dill, and lemon juice.
Most days, she’ll grab an apple with peanut butter or pick up a veg-heavy smoothie when she’s on the run.
Peanut butter is one of her favourite foods and she tries to eat it every day when she can. I get it! It’s one of my favs, too. Just check out my chocolate peanut butter slice for proof!
Kaley’s diet changed a lot over the last few years. Most of those changes she attributes to her age. She used to eat tons of junk food every day and even treated herself to candy every night before bed.
Literally. She and her husband kept a stash of candy in their bedside table drawers!
She decided to cut down on the candy, as well as on soda and chips and her overall health and energy levels improved almost as soon as she made those changes.
Though Kaley’s diet is healthy, it’s not the only thing that helps her keep her body looking so perfect. She’s also something of a gym rat. She loves to work out and it shows.
Though a lot of stars tend to stick to one or two types of workouts, Kaley likes to keep things fresh. She does a lot of different exercises that challenge her body in very unique ways.
Kaley does yoga five times a week to transform her body. It’s her favourite way to get her workout in. Yoga has helped her be toned and have muscle, which she loves!
She regularly goes to CorePower Yoga. There, she’ll attend different classes like the Hot Power Fusion class, or a Yoga Sculpt class. During the Sculpt Class, you actually do jumping jacks between poses, so she gets in some cardio this way too.
Kaley works really hard to maintain her fitness levels. George C. King, who trainer her at the Fitness Factory, mentioned that she is interested in her lower body, specifically her butt, legs and abs.
He said that they do a lot of lunges, squat jumps, regular squats, leg curls and dead lifts. Doing squats and lunges could lead to muscle growth and if that’s not something you want, then I’d be careful with these exercises.
To tone her stomach, she does a lot of crunches, sit ups and knee lifts so her typical abs circuit looks like this:
Kaley does each circuit four times and rests 60-90 seconds in between the circuits.
Other than strength training, Kaley also goes to SoulCycle and does horseback riding!
She’s clearly a fan of working out outdoors too, since she goes on hikes from time to time with her friends.
Kaley herself admits that it took her years to realise that what works for others, might not work for her. She now knows what her body needs and knows how to keep her fitness levels at the top.
And I agree with her, not everyone is the same, so it’s important to not overwork yourself and to do what’s best for your body!
