My mom loves Sex and the City.
But that doesn’t mean I expect her to read any of my articles.
Sarah Jessica Parker is an HBO babe.
She’s had other roles like Failure To Launch, I Don’t Know How She Does It, and a handful of other movie roles – but starring as Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and The City and now Frances in Divorce are definitely her biggest hits.
Although her and Matthew McConaughey werrreeeee a really good pair in Failure To Launch…
Sarah Jessica Parker Stats:
Weight: (approximate) 123
Age: 54 years old
Sarah Jessica Parker does NOT look like she’s 54 years old in that picture.
I had to check more than one source just to make sure I wasn’t seeing things.
Normally the average height we see for women is around 5’4-5’6 with ladies such as Jennifer Aniston, Margot Robbie, Olivia Munn, Alicia Vikander, Sophia Bush, Tatiana Maslany, Evangeline Lilly, and a ton of others.
But then there is also that taller range, and among the tallest (even taller than the 5’7-5’8), are ladies like Gwendoline Christie, Gal Gadot, and a few others – with Phoebe Tonkin, Gabrielle Union, Brie Larson, Nina Dobrev, Daisy Ridley, and so many more coming in around that 5’7-5’8 range.
But, either way, don’t worry.

Sarah Jessica Parker Diet and Nutrition
Thankfully all our sources that have interviewed Sarah Jessica Parker agree: SJP is extremely lax with her diet, but most of the time she follows The Hamptons Diet guidelines.
We’ll go over exactly what that is, don’t worry, but I’m also going to share some quotes showing just how “lax” SJP is when it comes to choosing the foods she enjoys.
Here’s what Life and Style Mag has to share:
A “no junk food” rule? Again, no. “We always have Tootsie Rolls and York Peppermint Patties,” Sarah said. “I love to eat. I think about food all the time.” Surely, the award-winning fragrance designer has a formula for remaining so “lovely!”
Which they continue with:
Sarah Jessica is fairly lax about her diet, but she usually adheres to the Hamptons Diet. Created by former Atkins Center director Dr. Fred Pescatore, the Hamptons Diet takes elements from the Mediterranean Diet, the South Beach Diet and, of course, the Atkins Diet. Sarah Jessica eats a lot of fish and low-carb vegetables, lean meats, plus healthy fats and carbohydrates in moderation. The Hamptons Diet emphasizes using macadamia oil.
Pop Sugar stays right on track with what Life and Style Mag has to say by sharing:
Sarah Jessica does not hide the fact that she loves food, and counts pasta, bacon, and cheese as some of her favorite indulgences. It’s not a total junk-food fest, however, as she’s also followed the Hamptons Diet of lean meats, healthy fats, and low carbs during those times that she’s needed to drop a few pounds.
Both Self and Emrites Woman stay right there with us, Emrites giving us a list of banned foods when SJP is following her Hamptons diet restrictions:
Refined carbs, white sugar, white bread, pasta and rice, processed food, and saturated fats
I really like Sarah Jessica Parker’s outlook on diet and nutrition. She found what is sustainable for her (clearly, look at her bod over 50 years old!), which you’ll see even more of when we discuss her workout routine, and when she has to get a little more strict, she does so.
We see a lot of celebs opt for a sustainable approach like this.
That’s why our Academy Nutrition Classes (Monks, Minimalists, SuperHumans, Vikings, Spartans, Hunter Gatherers, Greek Gods, Samurais) revolve around helping you find the specific diet that is right FOR YOU.
Of course, there are a lot of reasons to HAVE the strict guidelines.
We’ve seen a lot of celebs opt for specific restrictions.
For example: Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart incorporate 80/20 dieting with big weekly cheat meals, Hugh Jackman, Benedict Cumberbatch and Terry Crews utilize intermittent fasting(something I use daily as well), Mustafa Shakir and Madelaine Petsch are vegans, Brandon Routh and Frank Grillo opt for paleo, and tons of others utilize their own variations as well.
And, that’s just to name a few celebs from each, by the way.

Sarah Jessica Parker Workout Routine Research
I think it’s important to note that Sarah Jessica Parker has always been in incredible shape.
As you can tell from the picture above of her back in 1992…you know…the year I was born….
That being said, Sarah Jessica Parker’s training has changed a lot over the years.
Now she says:
“I work out for a sum total of 22 minutes, because that’s all I can bear.”
But one think she ALWAYS sticks to is keeping an active lifestyle.
She makes sure to walk A LOT, and tracks her steps with a Fitbit, Life and Style shares:
“I walk a lot. I think walking is great,” the star said, admitting, “I have a Fitbit.” She achieves her daily 10,000 steps goal by walking her kids to school, running errands and hoofing it to meetings. “I also live in a house with four flights of stairs,” she said.
Sarah Jessica Parker also loves yoga. She’s been quoting saying:
“I do yoga whenever I can.”
And, if nothing but me being redundant:
“I try to do yoga three times a week, and my twin daughters act like arm weights.”
Pop Sugar also shares this with us about SJP’s active lifestyle:
Whether she is picking up the kids from school or running errands, she prefers to hit the pavement rather than rely on a car to get her everywhere. And when distances are too far, she’s also been known to hop on a bike to get her where she needs to go. Besides being a moderate-calorie burner, walking can help elevate your mood and ease digestion and is also a great way to catch up with a friend.
But, as much as her current training seems to be more walking and staying active with a touch of yoga, Sarah Jessica Parker has also definitely worked with trainers, got involved in fitness classes, and done a lot more to get those toned muscles that never seem to leave her physique (no matter how many years go by)!
Emrites Woman shares this for our final quote, which I’ll be using to build a nice hybrid workout for you (Sarah Jessica Parker’s workout adapted through the years, we’ll call it):
As well as regular running, Pilates and yoga workouts, SJP maintains an active lifestyle in her native New York, taking the stairs everywhere and walking when possible. She also trains with celeb trainer Anna Kaiser of AKT Motion, who puts her through her paces with an intensive 20-minute combo of hip hop dancing, yoga and Pilates interspersed with weight exercises, allowing for active recovery sessions so that every second counts – literally!
So we’ll see a combo of tracking steps, getting active with fun activity, yoga, Pilates, and some high intensity (but short) circuits!
