How Ashlee Simpson-Wentz Stays in Shape

Reality Check: Ashlee Isn't a No Carbs Kind of Girl

Even though she lives the So Cal lifestyle, Ashlee Simpson-Wentz told Women's Health that she doesn't starve herself for a Hollywood figure; she simply loves food, and one of her favorite feasts features Mexican fare. Once a week Ashlee and her hubby, Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz, invite family and friends over for taco night. Ashlee told the mag that she's not afraid of cheese, eats cheeseburgers with ranch dressing, and indulges in French fries. But don't spread the rumor that she's eating for two, because she's not, and Ashlee shares that she's even slimmer than ever.

She boasts about devouring whatever she wants, doesn't deprive herself of the foods she craves, and still has such a great figure. To find out what she asys is her secret,


Ashlee's secret weapon is Bronx Pilates! Her 1-year-old son is in her arms all day, and carrying around that extra weight has helped to really tone her arms.

Before she gave birth, Ashlee had gained 50 pounds, and her breasts were up to a size E when she was nursing. So once baby Bronx was two weeks old, she was ready to start losing the extra pounds. A home-delivery meal plan didn't work since she's a big eater. She says, "If I want a grilled cheese sandwich, I'll eat a grilled cheese sandwich." So she turned to exercise, and with the help of a personal trainer, the new mama set up a home gym and started circuit training. Four weeks later, Ashlee had lost half her baby weight. Her diligent workouts have definitely paid off. Of course, this young actress also has her youth and genes to thank. Though she looks amazing now, Ashlee dispels the notion that her bod was a result of Hollywood stress. She says, "I wasn't in a rush to get back to this body for anyone else. It was more like, 'I wanna look good [for me]? I wanna feel good.'"

Ashlee is feeling great and very appreciative of her family and all life has blessed her with. On top of a great career and a healthy son, her hubby is a great source of comfort and support. "Pete isn't worried about stretch marks, " she says, "He always makes me feel sexy."

The way she explains it, she doesn't really do anything currently to maintain her figure. Do you believe it?

Seriously? This is supposed to make me motivated to go work out? Really, this is very disappointing from Fitsugar. You'd think you all would promote HEALTH and WELLNESS. Someone who is "fit" doesn't look like a strong breeze is going to break them in half. I guess bones aren't my definition of sexy. Anyone who can eat cheeseburgers and french fries "anytime I want" and looks like that either 1) doesn't ever actually eat that crap or 2) has a serious health condition. Gross

No, I don't believe her. As anonymous #15 points out, she lies on interviews.Also, as someone who exercises and who is mindful of what she eats, I know what it takes to look thin, and it isn't what she is saying.

I'm sorry but she's definitely full of it, because we've all seen her natural weight (on that reality show she did a while back) and this is skeletal compared to that. She should just say nothing.

She's definitely lying. She's so skinny it's scary, and obviously in denial about it. I'm glad she's not more popular because she is not a good role model for young girls.

That's Hollywood for you... everyone loves food! They all eat what they want and only do exercise when it's fun and convenient! Yes, they've got it down to a science... please. I'd have to lose 3/4 of my brain mass to believe any of the crap they say for publicity. I at least have respect for people like Carmen Elektra who come out and say, "Yeah, it's hard to be this thin and I am always hungry and working out." These statements they make do propagate the belief that we're not "good enough" to look like them. Ladies, accept your body for what it is (NOT camera-fodder) and go out and DO something with it! You look better with a smile, even if you have a sandwich in your hand!

wasn't this the same girl who was at least 20 pounds larger on her reality show? Do I believe her? Please don't insult my intelligence.

Ah yes, the old "I just run around after my kid" celebrity secret to weight loss. And the cycle of making regular folks feel inferior continues! Give me a break. Celebs do tons to make sure they don't put on extra weight towards the end (like inducing at 8 mos) and they also have trainers, personal chefs. Yes she's naturally thin, but she isn't just running around after her kid.

Most of these celebs have BMIs around 15 and 16...I don't know how that happens without having a health condition or eating disorder. As someone who has struggled with body image disorders, I think it's irresponsible that celebrities like Ashlee Simpson pretend that their looks/figures are attainable by healthy means and without any surgery. It has taken years for me to understand that my weight of 135 at 5'9 is thin and that 110 pounds is an unrealistic, unhealthy goal. Unfortunately, even now I get frustrated when I see these beautiful women on TV and know that I will never/could never look like that.

If she's as honest about her diet/eating habits as her sister, suuuure I believe her. I'm guessing she isn't quite giving out all the details on her diet/workout plan.

LaurenG22, she only claims to have lost half of her baby weight (25 lbs) in 4 weeks, which considering some of the 25 lbs was the actual baby, doesn't sound too extreme. I believe her. She doesn't say that she's stopped working out, and it's definitely possible to maintain your weight while indulging in foods you like, as long as you aren't eating huge portions of them.
