After giving birth, most mothers will probably start to plan on how to shed the baby weight they gained while being pregnant. Every mother is different – while it’s easier for some women to lose those extra pounds, others might take a longer time and more effort.
But don’t worry, we are here to help you get back to shape. Here are 5 celebrity weight-loss secrets you need to know about:
According to Queen Bey, the fastest way to lose the baby weight is by breastfeeding. In an interview back in 2012, Beyoncé said, “I lost most of my weight from breastfeeding and I encourage women to do it; it’s just so good for the baby and good for yourself.”
The key to losing the baby weight is through proper diet. Sexy pop singer and actress Jennifer Lopez said that going vegan helped her lose the baby weight.
“Since I had the babies about six years ago, I had that like, really stubborn eight to ten (pounds) on me. People are used to seeing me be kind of thickish, but when I started eating (vegan), right away I dropped like 8 to 10 pounds. It was a real change, but more than that, I felt much better. And people were like, ‘Your energy’s better’… everything’s better. I did full vegan for almost four, five weeks, then I just started incorporating proteins for myself. The truth is, even if you’re 70-80% vegan, it’s so much better having those vegetables, greens, and plant-based stuff. It’s going to change your life and it’s going to change your health,” shared the hot mama.

Another way to get rid of those extra pounds is to try to squeeze in workouts into your daily routine. Jenna Dewan Tatum says she was able to lose her baby weight by doing lunges and calf raises while rocking her daughter for 40 minutes.
She explained, “I used all of the minutes and hours that I would be rocking Evie to sleep, and I’d make it a workout. So I’d be doing lunges across the room or squats or whatever I was doing, because I was going to be doing it for 40 minutes regardless, so I might as well turn it into a little bit of a workout.”
Jessica Simpson is one fit mama. Do you know how she lost those baby weight? It was by daily walks. After her baby Ace was born, she said she aimed to get 8,000 to 10,000 steps a day. “I wasn’t trying to lose weight,” she said in a recent interview with USA Today. Rather, she began walking to release anxiety and be a “happier person to be around.” Now, she says, “I try and walk about four miles a day consistently. It makes me feel better.”
Jessica Alba is a proud mother, a loving wife, and the founder of The Honest Company. To shed her baby weight, the actress used a corset to get her pre-baby body back after her two pregnancies. “I wore a double corset day and night for three months. It was brutal; it’s not for everyone,” she said. However, she went on to say it was “sweaty but worth it.”
