5 of the Healthiest Celebrities

Celebrities are known for looking flawless.  They look out at us from magazine covers with the whitest smiles, the shiniest hair, and the fittest bodies next to blurbs that say “10 steps to flat abs” and “A new way to perfect skin”.  Readers are consciously aware of photoshopping now, however many people still hold themselves to impossibly high beauty standards.  The crazy thing is that even though most of these stars still look beautiful even without the photoshop, many of them are not as healthy as they could be.  Some regularly work out at the gym but are addicted to junk foods and sweets, and others are reasonably healthy eaters but neglect physical activity.  As it turns out, celebrities are just like us in the health department; balance is difficult to achieve.

But the most shocking discovery of all? A few of the stars who are regarded as the healthiest and who dedicate a fair amount of time to spreading the healthy lifestyle gospel actually smoke.  They claim that it isn’t often, maybe one cigarette per week, but it is still a dangerous game to play, especially where addictive and carcinogenic substances are involved.

This being said, it was much more difficult than anticipated to find stars who eat well, exercise, and who do not engage in risky behavior such as smoking.  The celebrities on this list satisfy all of these requirements and even do one better by sharing their knowledge with their families and the public, through speeches, television, magazines, books, and entrepreneurial ventures.

Here are 5 of the healthiest celebrities.

5 Bradley Cooper

4 Kourtney Kardashian

3 Kelly Ripa

2 Cameron Diaz

1 Miranda Kerr

Supermodel Miranda Kerr is number one on the list because she truly embodies every aspect of healthy living.  She regularly exercises and does so in a variety of creative ways.  From doing ballet exercises to sometimes spending up to ten minutes per day doing planks at home, Kerr ensures that not a day goes by without engaging her muscles in some way.  Furthermore, she pays close attention to what she feeds those muscles.  She eats organically, with a focus on lots of vegetables and lean proteins.  In order to be sure that she is following the right regime, Kerr even took some courses to become a certified holistic health practitioner.  This designation also armed her with some knowledge to launch her own line of organic skincare, KORA Organics, which took her four years to develop with an organic pharmacist.  Because your skin is the largest organ in surface area, it absorbs a great deal, including chemicals that can go straight to your bloodstream.  Kerr hopes to curb this by providing skin products that are not harmful to the body and that keep us in touch with nature.  The final step in Kerr’s holistic approach is maintaining a healthy mind, something that she does through yoga and meditation.  She has written two books on self-improvement and self-love for women of her generation, Treasure Yourself and Empower Yourself.  She is certainly a celebrity leader in the mind-body-green revolution.
