Lose Weight Like a Celebrity...Not!
All that glitters isn't gold. It's hard not to be jealous of those superstars who shed massive amounts of postpartum pounds in a matter of months, while the rest of us are left battling the bulge for at least a year. However, when it comes to celebrity weight loss after giving birth, results are not typical. Many of these stars engage in strenuous workouts with a personal trainer while a chef busily prepares their meals. Your best bet is to follow a healthy meal plan, exercise regularly and find a support system. You'll have just as good of a chance of losing weight at a rate of one to two pounds a week - plus, you have a better chance of keeping the weight off long-term. Many celebrities claim that the pounds just melt off as they breastfeed, but we all know it's not that simple. If you are nursing, then you do need a few extra calories, but it's important to make them quality calories, not just on-the-go snacks or fast food. Question everything that comes in a package.
