Lose weight by…

…doing nothing.

Right.  That’s realistic.

Rebecca Romijn was photographed and applauded for being back in shape mere weeks after her pregnancy and giving birth to twins. In a recent interview, she told Extra! that she lost 35 pounds in about 3 weeks by breastfeeding.

Romijn’s close to losing the 60 pounds she gained during her pregnancy and get this…She’s done it without a workout plan. “I think within the first three weeks, I took off like 35 pounds without doing anything!” Okay, almost anything. “I haven’t been able to work out that much because I have twins. It’s impossible to get back into a regular schedule.” So, what is her secret to dropping the pounds? “Breastfeeding is the very best diet I’ve been on. It’s amazing. It’s like you have to eat 5,000 extra calories a day or you can’t produce enough food for them.

Breastfeeding burns approximately 500 calories/day and women lose approximately 1-2 pounds/week. Salma Hayek is the only celebrity that I’ve heard speak honestly about pregnancy, baby, weight gain, weight loss and breastfeeding.

I wrote a similar piece in October when the tabloids were printing pictures of Angelina Jolie 11 weeks after twins.

  1. I lost weight like crazy by breast feeding! and doing some walking and yoga

    but mostly breast feeding, hours at a time, the weight melted off…

    the trick is when you back off from breast feeding to change your diet! otherwise the weight is back!

    If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
