Bethenny Frankel is yet another celebrity who lost her baby weight in record time. But, as with any celebrity who gets back to their prebaby shape quickly, there is criticism of the message being sent. The editor in chief of Fit Pregnancy said, “I worry about the message that sends to the rest of us out here, who aren’t invested in that ‘skinny girl’ persona and don’t have trainers.” But Bethenny isn’t taking the flak laying down telling Access that, “Do I think it’s an unrealistic message to be sending? If I gained 80 lbs. and expect to come back, that’s unrealistic. But the truth is I’m healthy before, during and after.” So what are the five reasons that Bethenny lost that baby weight so fast?
1) She is “Skinny Girl.”
Her brand is all about being a “skinny girl,” so of course she would try to return to her pre Bryn shape sooner than later.
2) No barefoot, pregnant and pigging out for this mom.
Bethenny didn’t eat a ton while pregnant in the first place, so she didn’t pile on the pounds. “I didn’t diet when I was pregnant, but I also didn’t binge,” she told Access. “My theory is people who gain 60 to 70 pounds… you’re eating, you’re eating like a maniac! I think it’s license to go off the rails.” This skinny –minnie kept thin and slim. “I ate healthy and I did eat sweets,” she said. “I do love to indulge a little, I ate whatever I wanted, but not like a crazy person.”
3) Tiny Baby
Had she gone through all nine months of pregnancy perhaps in that last month she may have blown up to whale like proportions (but I doubt it). Baby Bryn was born five weeks premature. And her baby was tiny! She came into the world at just 4lbs, 11ozs. so Bethenny wasn’t carrying a whole lot of baby in there in the first place.
4) She took her own advice
Bethenny penned the cook books “Naturally Thin” and “The Skinnygirl Dish” plus she has her own exercise DVD out. So she apparently doesn’t just dish out advice she swallows it herself.
5) Photographic Proof: Just look at this photo above. For a woman who was 6 months pregnant, she never gained that much weight to begin with.
