Julia Roberts Knows the Importance of Good Genes

After giving birth to her third child, Julia Roberts, has been working out to get back into shape. She does want you to know, however, that you shouldn't believe all the hype about celebs getting back into shape after having children. She said:

"I have been working out, but listen, it is 97 percent genetics. Don't let anybody tell you any crap about anything else, because that's what it is: 97 percent genetics and 3 percent just get your ass moving. Because I've never met a cookie I didn't like."

Got to love Julia's sense of humor and realistic approach to losing weight. I am not sure about the facts behind her 97% to 3% ratio, so don't feel totally hopeless. If you're looking to lose a little post pregnancy weight, slow and steady (along with healthy eating and exercise) wins the race. Besides, while she remains one of my all-time favorite celebrities, 97% of all my genes don't contain those would make me look like, well, Julia Roberts.

For anyone looking to up her own chances of staying fit pre/post pregnancy, be sure to check out Gabby Reece's moves to keep fit while pregnant.
