Ellen Pompeo had a busy Wednesday morning as the hottie was spotted heading to the gym in Studio City, California.

We’re guessing she probably hoped to burn off a few extra calories before her Thanksgiving dinner.

And noticeable in her hand is the large Vita Coco coconut water which she just seems to love.

That must be some special coconut water, because at the precise moment the photo was taken it almost looks like she's walking on air. Hah!

Looking good, Ellen!

Behind The Fad! Coconut Water Is The Newest Celebrity Craze

Filed under: FitnessFoodHealth

Coconut Water The Newest Celebrity Crazy

It’s tough to find a celebrity walking out of a yoga class who isn’t carrying a bottle of coconut water these days.

Celebrities have started latching on to this new miracle drink, coconut water, so much that many, including Madonna, Demi Moore, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers are investing money in it.

And it doesn’t seem to be a total waste — there are health benefits.

It’s not just a sugar-free, low calorie super-hydrating drink, companies who make it claim that it can also help prevent heart disease, strengthen the immune system, and burn fat. Some studies claim that coconut water is more hydrating than water and as hydrating as “isotonic” sports drinks except without the caffeine and dyes.

And people are catching on in a big way. Sales are up 800% in the past few months.

What do U think? Is coconut water just another trend or is it a legit new way to hydrate yourself?
