Celeb Mom Slim Down Secrets: Debra Messing

Debra Messing was definitely very thin during her Will & Grace days but, like almost every woman on the planet, Debra gained a bit of weight during her pregnancy. This then turned her very slim frame into the frame of a pregnant woman. No shocker there, the real secret is how she lost all the weight.

According to AOL, Debra credits losing her baby weight to breastfeeding as well as hitting the gym with trainer Gunnar Peterson.

Debra Messing's weakness for sugary breakfast cereals and fast-food burgers during her pregnancy contributed to a weight gain of 60 pounds. Breastfeeding her son Roman helped the typically slender star shed some weight. To take off the rest, she hired Hollywood fitness trainer Gunnar Peterson who designed an exercise routine incorporating resistance training.

Maybe you don't have the cash to hire a celebrity trainer but I've got a cardio workout from Gunnar himself, maybe even one that Debra had to do. So check it out here.

I love that gray dress (on te right) She used to dress so good, when on "Will & Grace"

That's too bad, I think she looks better with fuller, pinker cheeks and some meat on her. I never did understand designers' "sample sizes." Are they sampling on 9-year-olds or grown women!?

mwmsjuly19 - You're right, she did lose weight somewhere in the middle of the show. She said that designers started sending her free clothes (or something to that effect) and she thought she looked better in the clothes when she was smaller (This was on some E! show about the lollipop crowd). Doesn't seem like very healthy reasoning to me, but I guess they must have been sending her tiny sizes and she got self conscious or sumtin. . .

I find it so facinating how breast feeding after giving birth naturally helps your body get back to normal. Human nature is a powerful thing!

I'm a little concerned about losing my baby weight after my current pregnancy. I lost the weight from my first pregnancy, but it was so hard and I'm dreading doing it again. I think Debra is a little too skinny now though.

Good God. She's toooo freaking skinny. And I don't think it's natural. She was somewhat normal-sized on Ned & Stacey and even the early Will & Grace. I'm telling you, check out the reruns or the DVDs. She stopped eating!

Thanks Fit! I love that Debra seemed to lose her baby weight the right way. Sure, she is very thin again now, but she didn't drop the weight immediately. She had a very normal "new mom" figure for a while after her delivery, and I completely applauded her for that. The hollywood pressures to drop weight immediately like it's some sort of contest is not healthy for mom or baby. :baby: Kudos to Debra. I will say that I wish I could afford her trainer after delivery!
They Lost the Baby Weight Already!
