From Baby To Bikini: Blake Lively Shares What She Cut Out Of Her Diet
Blake Lively in her recent film, The Shallows was seen in her best shape. Yesterday, the actress divulged a little information about her transformation from baby to bikini!
"I've never been in that good of shape in my whole life so to do it [get that bikini body] after having a kid was actually really nice," she told Australia's Kylie & Jackie O radio show. "Because you see your body after having a kid, and it's beautiful because you just gave birth but you also say, 'Oh my god, this is not what my body looked like.' You feel like you're never going to get your body back again. But you can and that was what was encouraging about it!"
Her body was a result of a combination of exercise and diet that worked like a charm and got her ready to film eight months after giving birth. The secret behind her success was giving up on two kinds of food, namely, gluten and soy. She says, though it may sound easy but mostly everything you eat has soy in it. Even the healthy Whole Foods and organic stuff has soy in it and when you eliminate soy out of your diet you are eating no processed foods whatsoever.
Though, food lover Blake didn't completely give up on her sugar cravings as she says,
"I was still able to have sugar and all of those things. It's all in moderation. You just have a balance of protein, carbs, and vegetables. And it wasn't the worst. I was eating rice and sushi and but just no soy and no gluten. And watch how hard that is."
