When it comes to staying healthy, Sen. Kamala Harris keeps it simple with her advice: “Work out, and eat well.”

“I can’t say how many women I’ve mentored in college. I say, ‘Are you working out every morning?’ No. Then I say, ‘You’ve got to work out,’ ” the California Democrat told the Lenny Letter in 2015.


“It has nothing to do with your weight,” noted Harris, who said she makes sure to hit the treadmill for half an hour every morning. “It’s about your mind.”

Following her rapid political rise, some have speculated that Harris’s own mind could be set on a 2020 White House bid. The former prosecutor — who “politely declined” through her office to participate in 50 Most Beautiful — said at a Recode conference in May she’s not giving “any consideration” to running for president.

“I’ve got to stay focused,” she said.
