Karolina Kurkova Explains Her Post-Baby Body May Not Be the Product of Magic


The stunning Karolina Kurkova didn't just pop out the kid and look super-skinny after nine months of being the lazy, indulgent sort of pregnant woman who ate whole tubs of ice cream every day. Karolina, who works out with Tracy Anderson tells W she dieted and exercised:

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? And 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! ... 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.

Of course this might not work for other people who, you know, crave food, can't afford a personal trainer, and don't have Karolina's rare model genes.
