Kate Hudson Flaunts Rock Hard Abs for Shape Magazine

Kate Hudson's Relationship History
A look back at Kate Hudson's loves.

Yowza! Kate Hudson is in fantastic shape these days, and she’s not shy about showing off her toned torso.

Hudson covers the March issue of Shape magazine and talks about how she nixes dieting as well as her love of Paris.

So how does she maintain her toned figure? The 35-year-old mother of two rejects the idea of dieting. “It puts so much pressure on people to lose weight quickly,” Hudson tells Shape. “Getting healthy is not a two-week process, it’s a change of lifestyle.”

That doesn’t mean that Kate doesn’t love food, especially Parisian food. Hudson recalled, “I was at my favorite French restaurant in Paris… eating everything I love…steak, fries, lots of wine. Then the dessert came, and I was having strawberries and cream pastries plus the wine. [Then,] a svelte, sophisticated woman approached [my] table. She pointed to my glass of wine. ‘This is your piece of cake. That’s how you should be thinking.’ And I always try to remember that: Everything in moderation!”

As Hudson has gotten older, and become a mother to two sons, she feels that her competitive streak has dwindled. “I felt a shift and really don’t have the desire to thrill-seek anymore. The other day my brother was making fun of me and called me a Gucci skier. He said, ‘you’re wearing all the right clothes and look good skiing, but when you get down the hill, you’re done,” Hudson stated.

The issue of Shape featuring Kate Hudson is on newsstands today!
