1. There are a lot of celebrities who claim that after having a baby, their bodies just sprang back naturally without any work at all.
2. Kate Hudson is not one of those celebrities. In a refreshingly honest interview with Yahoo Lifestyle, the actress said the idea that baby weight can simply drop off without work is crazy.
“If I looked at my girlfriends and my peers, I don’t think any of them have ever said anything like that,” she said. “Ever. Because they’ve all said it’s hard work.
“If you want to lose baby weight, I think it’s a very rare thing for women to do it without doing anything. I mean, scientifically, that’s the craziest thing I’ve ever heard.”
She continued: “Some women have that metabolism where you’re like, ‘Wow, you didn’t even gain any weight being pregnant.’ Well, that’s not me, and a lot of women probably relate to that.”
3. She went on to reveal that she worked HARD to lose the 70lbs she gained during her first pregnancy.
“I gained 70lbs, and the experience of trying to lose it was really interesting, because I’d never been in a situation where I realised I really needed to lose quite a few pounds,” she said.
“So I’d lose 10lbs and then I’d plateau at 150 and stay there forever. It was really discouraging. But I didn’t change anything – you just have to push through it. That moment where you have to push through it is really emotional.
“You get down on yourself, you get discouraged. But like anything, if you want to be successful you have to put the hours in.”
