After revealing in a May Instagram Story that she lost about 35 lbs., Ayesha Curry is spilling the beans on how she pulled it off!
In an interview with Yahoo Canada Lifestyle posted over the weekend, the actress — who recently teamed up with Fitbit Premium to produce exclusive original content — discussed her nutrition and fitness regimens.
“My daily routine typically starts with a coffee with ghee and coconut oil blended,” the 31-year-old dished. “I try to drink 32 ounces of water before noon and flavor it with cucumbers and lemon.”
While the “Seasoned Life” author loves to make chicken Parmesan for herself and husband Stephen Curry, as it was one of the first dishes she made for him when they were dating, Ayesha now prepares a lighter version of the Italian classic.
“I do a lighter breading using panko instead of regular bread crumbs, and whip up a super-fast and fresh tomato sauce for the topping,” she explained.
Additionally, the “Ayesha’s Homemade” host loves to serve the couple’s kids — daughters Riley, 8, and Ryan, 5, and son Canon, 2 — lots of fresh produce, as they are “a ‘green veggies’ family.”
“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,” she noted. “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.”
In terms of her nutrition strategy, Ayesha pays attention to portion control and monitors her sustenance through the Fitbit app.
“[I] try to stick to nourishing, delicious food in moderation,” she said.
Ayesha also gets her fitness on by doing exercise videos through Fitbit Premium.
Last month on Instagram, Ayesha opened up about her fitness journey while showing off her healthy figure in an Under Armour pink sports bra and black gym shorts.
“I started my fitness journey because I wanted to be strong and healthy for myself and the people who depend on me. But it was important that I did it my way, which meant I needed working out to fit in my life, NOT take me away from it,” she wrote.
While she does not think there’s any formula that “works for everyone,” she does believe “that creating time for yourself to exercise is never time wasted.”

I started my fitness journey because I wanted to be strong and healthy for myself and the people who depend on me. But it was important that I did it my way, which meant I needed working out to fit in my life, NOT take me away from it. I hate the term balance, because I don’t think there’s any formula that works for everyone, but I do believe that creating time for yourself to exercise is never time wasted. So I went to work finding ways to incorporate healthy habits into my busy schedule, and picked up a few tricks along the way (easy 10-minute workouts, fast healthy recipes, etc.). I am beyond excited to share them with you through a new exclusive series with @Fitbit with episodes rolling out all summer long. You can access my content on Premium within the Fitbit App, which you can try out for FREE! Let’s get moving and make it a #fitbitsummer #fitbitambassador #ad 📷 by @jazmiyagi
