Kate Gosselin's Fitness and Diet Plan

How Kate Gosselin Found Her Abs

Kate Gosselin's abs are looking especially toned, and some speculate that it's from drawn-in ab muscle definition with a spray tan. While a sunless glow can provide extra definition, that's not the reason her abs look so darn chiseled. And neither is the tummy tuck she had after her last pregnancy — that merely removed excess skin that was overstretched from being preggers with six. On top of her favorite pastime of running, NYC-based Crunch personal trainer Jenn Burke tells Us Magazine:

"She has to be doing a lot of deep core training: planks, really working on activating her glutes. When you have children, it causes an anterior pelvic tilt, which causes the stomach to look more puffy than it is. You have to align it and activate those muscles again."

Burke believes this mom of eight must be working hard to maintain the body she achieved on DWTS. In order to stay that buff, this momma must make time to exercise an hour five or six days a week and incorporate "circuit training moves full of high reps to keep the body constantly moving and shedding fat and defining the look."

Sweating it out is only part of her regimen. To find out what Kate's diet looks like,

Gosselin consumes about 1,400 to 1,600 calories a day, with " lots of high-quality protein like chicken and fish and fruits, vegetables and high-fiber grains." With her nutritious diet and regular exercise routine, looks like she's setting a healthy example for her kids.

Tummy tuck tightened, certainly, but those abs are from her hard work. Credit where it's due. She's annoying yes, but she's got a pretty bangin bod these days.

I'm sure the tummy tuck helped, but I think she looks fantastic now. I'm guessing those core workouts she's doing are definitely helping her out in that department.

She works hard for her body. On one episode of her show, she spoke about how she never feeds her children fastfood and invests money in pricier, healthier options so her children can grow up without a sugar addiction. She also considers healthy eating a life skill she can give her children.

A tummy tuck does not give you those abs. Her annoying personality aside she obviously works out and looks pretty good.

Yeah, but you also have to realize that she had a tummy tuck YEARS ago, and she wasn't even in that great of shape around the time when she and Jon split. She looks pretty damn good now.
