    Chrissy Teigen Got Real About How Misleading Celeb Weight Loss Is

    She explained that after having a baby, celebrities have "all the help they could ever need" to lose weight – and that it's an unrealistic message to send to other women.

    If there's one thing to love about Chrissy Teigen, it's that she has no time for bullshit.

    Whether it's shutting down parent-shaming trolls...

    To making points like this, Chrissy can always be relied upon to be real.

    Well, now she's spoken out about the pressure on women to lose weight after having a baby – and has said that this pressure is intensified by celebrities.

    Speaking on The Today Show, Chrissy said that celebrities are exposed to "all the help they could ever need" to assist with transforming their bodies.

    She said:

    Anyone in the public eye, we have all the help we could ever need to be able to shed anything. So I think people get this jaded sensation that everybody's losing it so quickly, but we just happen to be out there.

    And went on to say that the assistance celebrities get is not "normal or realistic" for the average woman.

    Chrissy said:

    We have nutritionists, we have dietitians, we have trainers, we have our own schedules, we have nannies. We have people who make it possible for us to get back into shape. But nobody should feel like that's normal, or like that's realistic.

    Chrissy also spoke about the need to talk about the hormonal and emotional changes women experience after having a baby.

    She said:

    I think a lot of the mood stuff that happens afterwards isn't really talked about. Whether it's postpartum depression, or, for me, some days I wouldn't know how to cope with work and juggle things. I think the mere act of losing those endorphins – I think I was slightly cursed by having such a great pregnancy and being so happy and having so much energy, that the decline of all those endorphins, and all the prenatals and everything I was on naturally made my mood change. There were periods where you get super dark.
