Last night new mothers everywhere drank a collective glass of haterade last night when new mom Beyonce stepped out last night, one month after giving birth to daughter Blue Ivy Carter, sporting sick killer curves like she was never pregnant at all. Although there are some who would dare say she was never pregnant at all, the reality is it is possible to get your body back soon after giving birth. Here are three reasons King Bey’s body snapped back, and how yours can too.
Beyonce Was Already Fit
Long before she put on the added baby weight, Beyonce was already in tip-top shape. Over a decade of working out and eating healthy prepared her body for the challenges of pregnancy. She most like also continued a modified version of her workouts and diet during her pregnancy which kept her body used to exercise making it easy to drop the weight post baby.
Now we don’t know this for a fact, but chances are new mom Beyonce is breastfeeding her new daughter Blue Ivy. While breastfeeding is a great bonding experience for mommy and baby, it is also a serious workout. You can burn up to 500 calories a day breastfeeding, the exact number of calories depends upon how frequently you breast feed and how much milk your body produces.
Let’s be real motherhood is no joke! Between late night feedings and diaper changes Beyonce doesn’t have as much time to workout as she used to. Although we’re sure she manages to get a quick session in here and there, for right now baby Blue comes first. So what do you do when you’ve got an event to go to, but still have a roll here and a bulge there? You get spanx of course! The wonder fabric smoothes out all those stubborn problem areas and sucks everything in giving you the illusion of post baby fab until you can make it 100% reality.
