Hilary Duff Keeps It Body-Positive When Talking About Weight, & Continues Being an Awesome Role Model

Who doesn't love Lizzie McGuire? If you aren't a fan, you probably will be after hearing from Hilary Duff about weight loss and body image. It's no secret that Duff is a promoter of a healthy lifestyle. She's never been one to give into being a size zero, or rush to lose all of her baby weight immediately, or think that one has to be thin to be successful. She's doesn't yield to Hollywood stereotypes and that's one of the many things I love about her. Plus, she's a great role model for all women, and who can hate on that?

In an interview with Elle, Duff chats about her body, losing weight, and what she sees as "normal," especially when it comes to living life the healthiest way possible. When asked about having "five pounds always show[ing] on [her] frame," she said,

Hallelujah! Hearing an actress talk about not having to be a certain weight and being comfortable in your own skin always makes me happy. More women, especially public figures, need to hand out advice like this.

And this isn't the first time Duff has opened up about her body. In December 2014, she appeared on the cover of Health magazine, where she talked about the pressure on mothers of having to get back into shape immediately after giving birth (which is absolutely ridiculous). She said,

During this interview, she even talked about how she once weighed 98 pounds and it was "not cute." Being that thin and counting calories isn't a healthy nor happy way to live, which is how Duff continues to live to this very day.

Thank you, Hilary, for being body-positive, honest, and real.
