I'm always amazed when celebs lose their baby weight twelve seconds after giving birth. Kate Hudson gained 60 lbs with her kid. Milla Jovovich? 70 lbs. Keri Russell put on 40 which is pretty normal, but it still makes this photo crazy. There was a fascinating article in Parents Magazine chronicling what celeb moms go through to shed the pounds and let me tell you, I couldn't hack it. Kate Hudson worked out two to three hours a day, six to seven days a week, and was restricted to just 1,500 calories per day. Heidi Klum worked out 90 minutes a day and only consumed greens, grains, egg whites, and protein shakes. Of course she had one hell of an incentive to get her body back: she's required to drop her baby weight in one month or she loses her $25 million deal with Victoria's Secret.
Of course there's another option. According to a friend of mine, when she had her C-section her doc asked if she'd like a little "tuck" before stapling her up. She didn't go for it but several of her friends had it done and ended up with US Weekly-worthy abs. Normally I'm not a fan of plastic surgery (pick up this month's Radar magazine if you're similarly obsessed with celebrity augmentation) but if you're already opened up, somehow it seems less wrong. I mean you're totally cheating, but honestly, we've all seen my stomach. Ain't no amount of crunches in the world gonna bring back my abs.
What do you think? If you had the option, would you have it done?
