Bethenny Frankel Covers Health Magazine Oct. 2010: "I Was Obsessed With Being Thin"

Bethenny Frankel Covers Health: "I Was Obsessed With Being Thin"

At first glance, you wouldn't think that Bethenny Frankel gave birth to a baby girl less than a year ago. But the glow she's sporting on the October cover of Health gives it all away. The reality star shares with the mag how she lost the baby weight, her anti-diet diet, and a flat-belly workout that can be done anywhere. Here are the highlights:

  • On losing the baby weight: "I gotta attribute it to being healthy before and healthy during [pregnancy]. I just weighed myself for the first time — I don't have a scale — but I'm probably three or four pounds more now."
  • On having an unhealthy body image while growing up: "I always was obsessed with wanting to be thin. I knew about every single diet — the five-day diet, the flight attendant's diet. I was obsessed with being thin. Obsessed."
  • On low-carb diets: "It's moronic. The only reason it works is that you're eliminating 75 percent of what's going on in your diet! Any diet that says watermelon is bad and a protein bar made with 500 ingredients you can't pronounce is good is idiotic. I can't believe so many people bought into it."

She claims she "was" obsessed with being thin? Yeah, I'm pretty sure she still is, but whatever.

if you lose your baby weight in 12 days that is not healthy. Don't even get me started on this chick.

Wow! I have never really cared for Bethenny before, but her view on low carb diets is so bang on with how I feel. Serious words of wisdom from this lady! Love it!

Um, couldn't she still be considered "obsessed with being thin"? She has a company called Skinny Girl, for one. I dunno, she seems pretty obsessed to me.

I don't really know much about Bethenny Frankel, but I like her more every time she opens her mouth. She seems to have a good relationship with food and gives sound advice. I have not read her books but now I am interested. However, the photo above is not very flattering, she is prettier than that.
