Blake Lively Doesn't Mind a Pre-Booty-Shorts Burrito

Blake Lively Doesn't Mind a Pre-Booty-Shorts Burrito

It appears that Serena van der Woodsen isn't the only one with a carefree attitude. Blake Lively's Gossip Girl character gives off a see-if-I-care air that the actress apparently adopts regarding the food she eats and when.

Blake spills the beans about her lack of willpower when it comes to monitoring her diet in the August issue of UK Glamour and said, "I had to do a scene in a bra and shorts for the first time in two years. On the day of the shoot, I ate a pork burrito, chips, and coke. Afterwards, I thought, 'I probably shouldn't have done that.' But whatever." The slender actress doesn't turn to exercise to work off the food she loves; in fact, she admits, "I have never worked out."

At 21 years old, Blake's metabolism is still working to her advantage, but thankfully she's talking about getting into exercise. She plans on getting a trainer because, she says, working out makes you "feel better." It doesn't seem like Blake needs any help with her self-confidence, but regular exercise is an important part of being a healthy person. Plus, she'll be able to eat those pork burritos for more years to come.

Good for you Blue - that is a really healthy and positive outlook on your health and your future! Keep up the good work.

I'm 17 and sometimes I think I wish I had such metabolism. But for most of the time I'm glad I don't because it forces me to eat well and to work out! Otherwise I could eat lots of junk food, yeah, but it would be so unhealthy! My 1 year younger sister can eat whatever she wants and she's still 2 sizes slimmer than me! But you know what, she's doing no good for her body and I know she'll have to start watching her weight one day. I'm glad I'm already getting used to leading a healthy life style. I'll have it more simple later in my life if I have my work out routine now, in high school!

I was naturally super skinny all through my teen years and then finally decided I needed some muscle and began working out in my late teens through early twenties. Never felt better and more confident than when I worked out. Once I met my husband and settled down, I stopped working out and 4 years later I am regretting it! You don't stay super skinny forever, the metabolism will slow down! I am now trying to get back to my pre-hubby build and it's tough! She shoud lstart working out and eating healthy now so it's easier to stay that size as her metabolism slows and she ages (hopefully naturally).

She's lucky that she doesn't really need to watch her diet, because she has an amazing body :) However, just because you're young doesn't mean that your metabolism works to your advantage. I'm still 16 and I would love not to exercise and eat whatever I wanted, but I can't. If I did, I'd be overweight. In fact, I put weight on so easily it's untrue.

She has never worked out? Ever? :jawdrop:

It's worth noting that Blake isn't working a desk job all day! Perhaps she has a dynamic lifestyle that provides enough exercise. Anyhow, I doubt she's eating burritos and coke daily.

The problem is not Blake's or any other celebrities talking about their workout regimine or lack thereof. The problem is we like to compare ourelves to them and think that if we workout like they do then we will look like them too. Everyone has a different metabolism and reacts to exercise differently. We don't all exercise the same nor do we all look the same and we have to find what works for us as individuals. If Blake can eat like that and look the way she does she obviously has a fast metabolism and has good genes, we shouldn't fault her for that. It isn't neccesarily fair that most people would never get away with that but such is life!

I believe her, if you watch her in any of her shows, she isn't very toned, or THAT skinny, she is normal sized-skinny. My younger sister is 5ft and weighs 86lbs and eats whateverrrr she wants, her favorite things are greasy fried foods and extra butter on everything. And according to the BMI, she is a 17, underweight. It's just how some people are.

I used to be the same as her - it's hard to find the motivation to work out if you're busy, not in the routine, and aren't trying to lose weight! Now that I'm 25, I eat healthier, and I work out almost daily because I enjoy it. But I still miss the days when I weighed 117 every single day, no mater how much junk food I ate.

yeah, and what did she eat the day after to balance that out? not a fan of actors who set an unrealistic diet and exercise regime....

Ew, I have no respect for celebrities who brag about not working out and eating whatever they want. If that's true, she's lucky, but she's surely not healthy. And I agree that it sounds like BS anyway.

She looks good but she should start exercising for her health and to get in the habit as she gets older. I am naturally slender and when I was teens/early 20's it was fine that I didn't work out and didn't eat well. Now that I'm in my mid 20's I need to work out to keep muscle tone. If I don't I am still thin but flabby...not a good look.

"mmm...I think she really needs workouts. And by the way, to loose some weight is a good idea for her. " Wow...she looks great! She shouldn't loose a pound.

I hate it when people say "oh she's young, her metabolism is working for her - BUT JUST WAIT the weight will catch up with her", because it is just as hard, I believe, to stay at a certain weight when you're young as it is when you're older. I WISH I had that kind of metabolism...

I'm actually kind of glad that I'm not like her in a way. My sister was like that...she could always eat whatever she wanted to in high school and still be skinny without working at it too much. I've always had to work at being thin, but now that my sis is in her mid-20's, she's gained quite a bit of weight and she now actually has to figure out how to get it off.

Ahahahahaha! She's 21? She'll soon see the error in her ways!! In a year or two her metabolism is going to turn on her just like it does on everyone else! >:D

I'm with you, kristints... I think it's inappropriate to publicize how she supposedly eats like that, doesn't exercise, and looks like that. It gives young girls unrealistic ideas of body image and health. I was twig-like up until I turned 17, and at 19 I'm still struggling with finding my perfect weight. I currently eat way healthier than I did when I was, say, 15, and exercise on a regular basis, which I never did before this year, and I still feel like I could stand to lose a few pounds...
