Ayesha Curry Shares Quarantine Lifestyle Tips that Helped Her Drop 35 Lbs.
Ayesha Curry is sharing details of her healthy quarantine lifestyle. The wife of NBA star Steph Curry and mom of three showed off her fit figure in a May Instagram post, revealing she had lost 35 lbs. during the pandemic.
In a recent interview with Yahoo Canada Lifestyle, Ayesha who is a celebrated actor, cookbook author, and chef opened up about how she’s looking at the big picture to maintain wellness throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
“Being healthy isn’t just about what you do in the gym or in the kitchen, it’s about the in-between too and how it all fits together,” Ayesha explained.
One thing that has helped her stay focused on her goals is her Fitbit Premium series, which she partnered with to develop exclusive original content inspired by her personal health journey with the focus on her two passions, fitness and food.
The series offers subscribers her health tips, workouts, ideas on delicious and nutritious meals, and family-friendly activities. Sign us up!
“I started my fitness journey because I wanted to be strong and healthy for myself and the people who depend on me,” she captioned a sponsored post back in July. “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.”
Ayesha suggested staying active with the use of simple equipment you most likely already around the house, such as two and three-pound weights, resistance bands, a mat, and a bench or chair.
“I’m very into bodyweight, so I don’t need much, equipment-wise,” she told Yahoo Canada Lifestyle.
Ayesha described her daily routine. Mornings typically begin with a coffee with Ghee and coconut oil mixed together. By lunch, she tries to drink 32 ounces of water and flavors it with cucumbers and lemon.
“Fitbit Premium has come in handy through quarantine,” she explained. “It was great while I was traveling and out of my routine — I was able to tap into the vast library workout content anytime, anywhere so I didn’t fall off track. It’s a great resource for at-home and on-the-go workouts.”
It’s not just Ayesha who’s staying healthy, of course. Steph and the rest of the family are all on board.
The whole family including Steph and their daughters Ryan Carson, 5, and Riley, 8, and son Canon W. Jack, 2 are a “green veggies family.”
“We love Brussels [sprouts], asparagus and broccoli,” she elaborated. “I like to roast them on high heat to give everything a nice char and enhance the flavor of the veg. 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 addition to healthy foods, the chef also tries to create meaningful meal traditions for the family. For example, she offered her chicken parmesan which is “nostalgic” for both her and Steph because it’s the first thing she cooked for Steph.
“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 shared.
For Ayesha, it’s not just exercise and a healthy diet.
Sleep is crucial for a healthy lifestyle, Ayesha apprised. “I’d never realized how much sleep impacts everything else, but what I’ve learned from my Fitbit sleep data is that I don’t get enough of it, so that’s the next thing I’ll be working on.”
“It’s connected to so much of our overall health and is so important,” she added.

She described how lucky she feels to share her healthy lifestyle with Steph.
“Stephen and I have been riding bikes outside together which has been really nice, or try and time our workouts together,” she said, adding that their kids join in from time to time.
“It’s kind of like summer camp with Stephen and I both home,” Ayesha said. “So we try and keep the kids active.”
