Those abs 😍

In case the onset of *slightly* warmer weather (sup, Spring!) wasn’t enough to make you want to dive head-first into healthy habits, just take a cue from Hilary Duff.
The mum-of-two has been going hard at the gym - and in the kitchen - lately, and has the abs to prove it.
“Linda Linda Linda, I’ve still been counting my macros with my man @theflexible.dieting.coach and it’s truly helped me stay lean even while eating bread, chocolate, and wine!” she captioned bikini pic on Insta showing off her six-pack. “I also love my @novobodyofficial fam and grateful I have found what works for me.” (FYI, @theflexible.dieting.coach is celebrity nutrition coach Erik Young and @novobodyofficial is Novo Body Fitness, a fitness studio in California.)
Hils added that while it’s “extra hard to keep up and find normalcy in quarantine” we should all aim to make at least 30 mins a day for ourselves “to stay connected.” Her recommendations? “Do whatever feels good for you even if it’s not food or fitness related!”
Naturally, her followers couldn’t help but compliment her on her ridiculous rig . “Damn woman!!! I love seeing you proud of that hard work❤️” said Jamie Lynn Siegler. “🔥🔥🔥 Wowza,” someone else wrote.
And while the 32-year-old didn’t go into specifics about what her eating and exercise regime entails, she recently told MBG she’d lost the equivalent of 4.5kgs.
“I am being really healthy right now and for the first time I am actually really enjoying it,” she said. “I had 10 pounds to lose after having Banks that were kind of hanging around and I was about to start shooting again, so I started to count my macros. I’d never done that before, but I love it!”
She explained that every time she’d tried cutting out full food groups in the past (e.g. carbs and sugar) she’d felt totally deprived.
“Other diets have been like, oh have a soup, and I'm like no. I have to chew something,” she said. “With the macros it's cool because I haven't had to cut anything out that I love. It's just about making sure my body is getting the right amount of protein and fat and carbohydrates—and then I get to choose what those are. So, if I'm feeling really hungry one day, I know that I need to eat a lot more of the healthy things to meet those numbers, but if the next day I'm not as hungry, I can have something I really enjoy.”
“I'm a really balanced person, and I like to have freedom,” she added. Looking good, Hilary!
