Blake Lively Reveals the Foods She Cut Out to Slim Down
After giving birth in to her daughter, James, in December 2014, Blake Lively needed to get trim for her role in The Shallows – where she spends the majority of the movie in bikini.
She revealed the super-strict diet she followed in the lead-up to filming, “What we actually did was no gluten and no soy. It seems like it was really easy to cut out, but you realise there is soy in everything... Even if it's healthy Whole Foods or organic stuff there's always soy in it. But once you remove soy you realise you are eating just, like, no processed foods. That's basically what I did. No processed foods and then working out.”
Wow, that must’ve been tough! The actress, who is now pregnant with her second child, admits her body was in the best shape it had ever been in, but believes this isn’t recommended for new mothers.
“It's so celebrated. It's like, 'This is what someone can look like after a baby'. I think a woman's body after having a baby is pretty amazing. You don't need to be Victoria's Secret ready right away because you just did the most incredible miracle that life has to offer. I mean, you gave birth to a human being! So I would really like to see that celebrated,” Lively explained.
We love her wise words!
