The gorgeous actress is a terrific example of what it means to be healthy and happy in Hollywood, and we couldn't wait to score some downtime with the star to see how she balances it all!
We sat down with the working mom and asked how she keeps her bod in such great shape.
Turns out, Hudson doesn't rely on a fancy trainer or a gym filled with tons of equipment.
"I'll go on a hike or I'll play football with the kids. The goal for me is to just get in a good sweat," she said simply.
On days where she doesn't feel like being that active, she even has an alternate plan to make sure she's detoxing in some way.
"I'll try to go somewhere that has a sauna…I just want to sweat. For me, if I break a sweat, I'm doing something right!"
Sounds like a good plan to us!
As for her diet, Hudson also wows us with her down-to-earth approach to eating.
"I love food, I'm a bit of a foodie and I travel a lot. One of things I love about travel is finding the spots where I get to eat yummy food…so no, I don't follow any specific diet," she shared.
"I watch what I'm doing. If there's a couple too many cocktails or pizzas or things like that, I'll just say 'Whoops!'" she says with a smile. "I want to be healthy, but also not have to starve myself of the things I love…like wine!"
And when it comes to splurging on her meals, you'll be impressed to discover that Kate is one celeb who isn't afraid of carbs.
"I don't know if it's my DNA because I'm Italian, but I love any kind of pasta! You gotta do it every once in a while!"
