(eating chocolate)


By Huda Heidi Kattan

Is it me, or does it seems like celebrities take magic peels to look insanely perfect?

Last night, I was so impressed with the Boss Nuit event (it was really incredible) and seeing Gwenyth Paltrow in the flesh was refreshing! She looked EXACTLY how she does on TV. More than anything, her super toned body was STUNNING and I honestly couldn’t believe it when she said she eats everything just works out like crazy! This morning, I read this article from Vogue about Adriana Lima and how she got back into shape JUST 8 WEEKS after giving birth by eating chocolate mouse, hamburgers and pretty much everything that would give most of us muffin tops and thunder thighs (No Thank You)! Here’s the deal breaker, she works out 4-6 hours a day 7 days a week—WHAT?!! Is that even humanly possibly!

After you give birth your metabolism starts to slow down significantly and your whole body mass changes. Where you gain weight, if you ever had cellulite, EVERYTHING! It’s almost like you have a completely new body! I never really had issues with weight gain until after I had a baby, now I struggle losing the weight and although people think I lost it, I just hide it well (thank you SPANX)!

What do you guys think about this? Do you have tips that you swear by for losing weight? Grapefruits are little secret, I swear by them!

Here is a kicker: I gained 45 kg with each pregnancies and unable to lose weight!!! I’ve been a raw vegan for 6 months and did P90X – gained 5 kg!!! I started getting acupuncture 4 weeks ago and the dr. put me on a different diet (no raw veg, no salads, no dairy, everything has to be cooked, I eat fish, and an egg every day now) and it’s slowly coming off finally

I have to ask; how do you get physical in the gym every day with tender boobs from all the breastfeeding/ pumping?

I think her body shape has slightly changed since having the baby. She isn’t AS slim as she was before. Hell, the way she looks now is obviously PERFECT! But when I see her before pictures, she isn’t as CURVY as she is now. Her hips seem a lot bigger too. And there’s nothing wrong with it at all! If anything, I prefer it! I wish I had all the time in the world to solely focus on working out and eating well 24/7.

I have 4 children, and i keep a very tight routin after birth! breast feeding only! private sessions at home (not all activities are useful) and one little secret i learned from a very good friend….a cup of hot water after every meal! it will help you so much…..and healthy food off course…
