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."
