Celeb Mom Slim Down Secrets: Nancy O'Dell

Celeb Mom Slim Down Secrets: Nancy O'Dell

Nancy O'Dell has reportedly lost 24 of the 30 pounds she gained from being pregnant, and it's only been nine weeks since she gave birth!

O'Dell, like many new moms, gives credit for her weight loss to breastfeeding: "Breastfeeding is the best diet," said O'Dell. Plus she said her diet now consists mostly of lean protein, vegetables and fruit because since she is breastfeeding, she wants to eat healthy for her daughter. She has also been avoiding milk, cheese, tomatoes and garlic, because it upsets Ashby's, (her new daughter), stomach.

O'Dell is no fool however, and realized that along with healthy eating, she should get some exercise in there too, so she started working out with a trainer just four weeks after she gave birth. O'Dell outlines her workout: "I do ballet and dance movements for an hour three times a week. It's great, because you work out every muscle but it's not strenuous."

Curious how other moms in Hollywood lost the weight? Check out all the celeb mom slim down secrets.

i think when celebs tell everyone how they got fit again doesn't make the average women feel good. but, that's the point. they are celebs! they get paid to look good and/or "bounce" back. it's so insane how hollywood thinks it's normal to start working out 4 weeks after birth. that's just insane. i don't know how these women do it!

haha! Anyone can have a nice bod with chefs and trainers. If that doesn't do it for you- you just don't have the will.

I'm just not interested in how rich celebs with chefs and trainers got back their body after pregnancy. Could it be because they have chefs and trainers? No -- I guess they're all telling the truth when they say, "I only eat fish and vegetables and chasing after my kids got me thin again." WhatEVER.
