Ask Lauren: How to Love the Body You Have

Here on LaurenConrad.com we post a lot of blogs about slimming down, shaping up, and getting fit. I’ll be the first one to admit that I love to read diet and fitness tips because I think a healthy lifestyle is important. But behind all of this talk of toning up lies the heart of what it means to be healthy: Loving the skin you’re in and treating it right. One reader recently wrote a comment that really inspired me and sparked a conversation on the blog. She explained that “loving the body you have” is a great way to be confident, but that constantly working to improve our health is what’s really important. I was happy to see this interesting take on the whole idea of “slimming down” and “shaping up” because it showed me that our readers are quite intuitive about body image. In a nutshell, here’s what one reader, Halie, wrote:


[Being healthy] shouldn’t be about appearance, it should be about health. Love yourself so much that you want to be healthy. Once I let go of trying to be skinny or perfect and focused on the idea of loving my body so much that I gave it the very best treatment, I got healthier.

Lauren Talks Diet and Fitness

While some stars take an extremely disciplined approach to “shedding for the wedding,” Lauren Conrad‘s not sweating it — literally or figuratively.

“I’m not a huge fan of the gym, to be honest,” Conrad told PEOPLE at Wednesday’s Malibu Island Spiced Summer Soirée in Miami, where she wore an Aqua dress and made floral leis. “When I have to go to the gym and put an hour in, I’m just staring at the clock”.

The former star of The Hills is also surprisingly easygoing about what she eats. “I really love food … I’m not good at dieting,” she said. “I try to make smart choices but just eat a little bit less.”

But don’t expect to see Conrad in anything but tip-top shape for her upcoming wedding to law student William Tell — she gets her workouts in the California way. “I just like getting out, like going on a hike, going on the kayaks, going for a run on the beach,” she explained.


Conrad also appreciates a healthy cocktail (see: the Truvia-sweetened spiced rum she’s fronting) and she’s been turning her fiancé into a fan as well. Sneakily. “Boys never want sugary drinks, but I feel like with these it’s like slipping your little kid broccoli,” she said. “They don’t know you’re giving them a low-calorie beverage.”

Ask Lauren: My Best Date Ever!

I love when I have the chance to answer your questions in my Ask Lauren posts. Today’s question came from a private message that was sent to me. It’s a fun one, so I thought I’d share my answer with everyone. Here it goes…


Hi Lauren! What is the best date you have ever been on? I am looking for fun date ideas to go on with my guy. We have been dating for almost two years, and I am all out of ideas.

While I’ve shared quite a few fun date ideas on the site before, the truth is that my best date ever wasn’t super adventurous or creative. It was my second date with my fiancé William. On our first date, I was so nervous that I couldn’t really enjoy myself! But when he asked me on date No. 2, I was feeling a little more relaxed. William wanted to go to a bar to grab a drink together, but I had lost my I.D. and just sent my passport away for my trip to Africa for The Little Market (I know, smooth move…). So, since we couldn’t go to an actual bar, we went to a hotel lobby bar and played cards all night. We literally closed the place down, just playing cards, talking, and laughing. And nevermind the fact that I lost… I actually kind of liked that William didn’t just let me win!

I knew he was a keeper after that night. While it’s fun to spice things up with new activities and adventures, I think that a sign of a strong relationship is when you can have fun doing even the simplest activities together. That’s still true of William and I to this day.

Brody Jenner Admits That He Never Actually Dated Lauren.

Brody Jenner is speaking out! The former Hills star has been opening up recently on his new podcast, The Brody Jenner Podcast with Dr. Mike Dow. After revealing he used to date his brother Brandon’s wife Leah, Jenner admitted in the July 3 episode that he never actually dated Hills costar Lauren Conrad, despite MTV portraying their relationship on camera.


It all started when Dow began to list off the names of Jenner’s ex girlfriends, mentioning Avril Lavigne, Kristin Cavallari, Lauren Conrad, and Nicole Richie. Jenner interjected, saying, “That’s false. Lauren Conrad and I never dated.”


"Lauren and I have always been just friends," the 30-year-old went on to explain. "We worked together on a show called The Hills where we had to pretend like we were dating but we never dated.
