Nikki Reed Diet and Exercise During Pregnancy

Nikki Reed Does This Cardio Routine to Stay Active During Her Pregnancy

Nikki Reed is glowing. The 29-year-old actress is pregnant with her first child, and she recently opened up about her diet and exercise routine in an interview with Fit Pregnancy and Baby — and we're taking notes.

Her Diet

Nikki roots her diet in plant-based foods, and she has for almost a decade now. "For the past eight years I've been a plant-based eater," she said. She's definitely not Keto — "Carbs are a huge staple of my diet and I try to be conscious of my intake, like, 'Maybe you don't want another stack of toast, since you've already had six pieces.' Right now, I really love cashew-based chocolate ice cream!"

Her Exercise Routine

Nikki has always lived a very active life, doing Pilates, yoga, and more — she's maintained this through her pregnancy. "I still do workouts," she told FP. "I take a 30-minute walk every day. Five days a week, I do 30 minutes of cardio, usually either jogging — which is now kind of a combination of jogging and scooting — or the elliptical. I carry two-pound weights and do hills."


She does a little bit of everything: "I do yoga. I lift weights. I do workout videos when I can't do outdoorsy things. And I just got water weights, so I can work out in the pool. I've always been an active person. It's what makes me feel good. As long as the baby's fine, I'll keep it up."

Her Mindset

It's challenging to maintain a strong self-esteem and sense of body love when you're in the spotlight — especially when you're in Hollywood. As it turns out, pregnancy was what helped secure Nikki's love for her body. "As an actress, I'm surrounded by chatter about my body," she said. "How do I look on the red carpet? Whose dress am I wearing? I've always rebelled against that, but being pregnant has given me this new and powerful appreciation for my body."
