Karolina Kurkova on Baby Weight, Tracy Anderson, and Green Juice

Karolina Kurkova on Being a Green Machine

Supermodel Karolina Kurkova is back to work and, I might add, looking pretty darn good in a new photo spread with W magazine. The former Victoria's Secret angel gave birth to a baby boy six months ago, opting to do a home delivery at that! While it may have been a little bit easier for Karolina to get back to her prepregnancy body — she is naturally lean, after all — she certainly didn't slack off either. Karolina shared with W that she kept her diet "annoyingly healthy" and relied on another working mom — trainer Tracy Anderson — to help get her back in shape. Here are the highlights:

  • On losing the baby weight: "I didn't gain much weight, and I think the secret was really staying active throughout my pregnancy. I did Pilates, a lot of weight training, I walked a lot and I traveled. I lived my life, you know?"
  • On her pregnancy diet: "I was eating really healthy, taking good supplements and vitamins, drinking green juices and just making sure I was putting the best stuff in my body. I didn't eat much junk, and I was lucky I didn't really crave it, either. So I'm all about listening to your body. But obviously you want to try to give it more natural foods, and fruits, good vitamins, fish oils, fiber. Lots of fiber when you're pregnant!"

To find out what it's like working out with Tracy Anderson,

  • On working with Tracy Anderson: "I wanted to try something different. I didn't want to be in the gym doing weights. And I like Tracy. She's a working mom like me and she understands that, and understands a woman's body. It's been really fun . . . it's a bit of a mishmash of everything. A little ballet, a lot of dancing, funk cardio. As a woman, where else can you go and listen to fast music and really dance? Especially after you have a baby, it's not like you have a lot of time to go dance! So it's a great place to just go and be, and feel good, feel sexy and sweat."
  • On what she eats now: "We still do a lot of fresh green fruit juices, and try to cook as much as we can so that everything's light, delicious and gluten-free. We don't really eat anything that's white, or processed. And we try to buy things from little farms and local places to support those businesses. I'm a big believer in that."

She was my favorite VS model. Was she fired or did she quit that gig? I love green juices too I make mine with celery (an entire bunch), apples (for sweetness) and maybe some kale and spinach. You can also throw in a whole lemon to make it green lemondade! mmm tasty!

^^ I agree, Spectra. Karolina actually got a lot of negative press a couple years ago when she put on weight, but now it looks like she's thinner than ever (and in a healthy way, not in an anorexic way), so I'm guessing her diet played a big role in it.

Ugh, I can't stand Tracy Anderson. I think Karolina probably lost most of her weight by keeping her diet so clean. You can definitely keep your body running properly by avoiding processed foods and junk.

Karolina is pretty :) I love green juices too! Wish she shared what she throws in these green juices! Usualy for me it's spinach, parsley and orange juice to ease the taste!
