Celebrities who've bounced back after pregnancy
Health and fitness consultant James King says of her choice to use pilates to get back into shape: "Pilates is unique in that it changes your body shape without necessarily affecting your weight significantly but rather improving your posture. Weight loss is not one of the 'most efficient' benefits of Pilates."
A month after giving birth Mel tweeted that she was running to get back into shape: 'Just ran 5miles that's 8.8kms on my 7 day training in 10 months after having my baby 4 weeks ago, now come on my peeps let's get the fat off.' But while she may have been getting fit she also wanted to start eating much more sensibly. Talking of why she joined the Jenny Craig programme Mel said 'I have already been exercising but what I need is a little push to help me start eating sensibly.'
Health and fitness consultant James King says: 'Yoga is not as effective as cardiovascular or resistance training for weight loss. However, it is a great way to detox and combat stress, which will certainly aid your weight loss programme - your body will resist burning fat when your mind is stressed; get your head right and your body will follow.'
Miranda follows a 'metabolic typing' diet, which proposes we each have a unique metabolic type and that the nutrients appropriate for one may be inappropriate for another. A number of different metabolic typing diet plans are currently marketed despite the lack of scientific rigour behind the claims. Jame King suggests following principles to get your diet on track: eat within thirty minutes of waking, include protein with each meal, eat at least three meals a day, avoid eating carbohydrate with your evening meal and avoid any liquid calories.
