Ayesha Curry Reveals How She Dropped 35 Lbs. During the COVID-19 Pandemic
While under lockdown with her NBA husband Stephen Curry and their three children, actress and lifestyle expert Ayesha Curry has lost 35 lbs.
How did she do it?
“Extra's” Billy Bush recently spoke with Ayesha, who explained how her Fitbit has played a role in her weight loss. She said, “I use it to track calories… It really was the boost I needed to get closer to my goals that I've set for myself.”
Ayesha also practices “portion control,” saying, “Live the 80/20 life, where 80% you're being mindful and 20% you're indulging.”
In a new interview with Yahoo! Canada Lifestyle, Curry talked about her choice to “stick to nourishing, delicious food in moderation.”
Case in point, her decision to cook a healthier version of chicken parmigiana with “lighter breading, using panko.”
She also noted that her family includes green veggies in their diet. She added, “We love Brussels [sprouts], asparagus, and broccoli. I like to roast them on high heat to give everything a nice char and enhance the flavor of the veg. There's nothing I love more than a one-pot/one-sheet pan dinner, so most nights I'll season up a protein and roast it alongside the vegetables.”
Along with kicking off her morning with “coffee with ghee and coconut oil blended,” Curry drinks “32 ounces of water before noon and flavor it with cucumbers and lemon.”
Curry also pairs her healthy diet with a workout routine that consists of light weights, resistance bands, a mat, and a chair. She said, “I'm very into body weight, so I don't need much, equipment-wise.”
Ayesha and Steph have also been “riding bikes outside together” and involve their kids in their workouts. She noted, “It's kind of like summer camp with Stephen and I both home. So we try and keep the kids active.”
Stressing the importance of overall health, Ayesha emphasized, “Being healthy isn't just about what you do in the gym or in the kitchen, it's about the in-between, too, and how it all fits together.”
In May, Ayesha announced on her Instagram Stories that she was “down 35 lbs.” after spending her “entire 20s having babies, nursing babies.”
