A while ago, Adriana Lima told us that she went on a liquid diet, followed by a protein diet to lose the baby weight. That sounded pretty strict, so it’s good to know that these days, Adriana also incorporates occasional treats in her diet (but continues to work out hard):
On eating candy:
I need the energy. I work out a lot, I work out every day. I do jumping rope and boxing. Per day, I use 1000 calories. So I do need to eat a lot and have all that protein, all the shakes, in my system. And I need a little candy! Now it’s gonna get more intense. I go there every day for an hour and a half!
On her gym routine:
AL: I do jumping rope, I do shadowboxing. I do boxing. I do a little abs, and little squats. I don’t use any weights at all. Everything I do is with the body, your own weight. The only thing I may use is a jumping rope.
Hot mommy / supermodel Adriana Lima recently opened up about her post-baby body, her diet and weight loss program:
â€œI always change my diet constantly every year I do something different, and this year it had to be exceptional because I just had a baby. So I had extra weight that I put on, and also my body was completely different – I felt like my bone structure just changed completely. I really had to work in a different way, so I did a few different things.â€
â€œI started with a liquid detox and then, after I did only protein . . . I went to a nutritionist – everything is followed by a doctor. It’s not that I just decide on my own, â€˜I’m doing this! I’m doing that!’ No. I have a nutritionist, and he does a series of exams, breathing, blood and everything else. And from there he sees how my metabolism works. If my digestion is fast, what type of food makes me bloated and not – all of these types of things . . . Food-wise I eat like anything green, any green vegetables grilled or any type of meats grilled, like four ounces of anything, for lunch and dinner. Between that I have either a shake or cereal bar.â€

Yet another comment that will surely make you debate! Let’s see the details from Star Magazine:
â€œIt was fun to see my body transform during my first pregnancyâ€¦ but I’m dieting all the time now and exercising more than ever, yet I can’t get my body to where it used to be. Being fit and sexy is definitely important to me, and it’s what makes me happyâ€¦
â€œHappy a 91/2-lb baby stretched me out so much, I have all this loose skin that just won’t go away. Initially my motivation to get back into shape was for the photo shoots I had agreed to do before gaining weight in my pregnancy. But then I had a C-section, which changed everything and put a bump in the road to my weight loss.
â€œI didn’t get liposuction after Hank [Jr], because I knew I wanted more babiesâ€¦ But I will 100 percent have lipo after my second baby, because until then, I know I will never be satisfied looking in the mirrorâ€¦ We’re not trying to get pregnant just yet, because we’re too busy loving the first one right nowâ€¦ But it will definitely be sooner rather than later, because I want to be pregnant within the next year.â€
