On how non-skinny women are portrayed:

“We’ve been fed a whole slew of lies about women.” By TV standards, “if you are anywhere above a size 2, you’re not having sex. You don’t have sexual thoughts. You may not even have a vagina. And if you’re of a certain age, you’re off the table.”

… says 50 year-old Viola in Elle.

Alyssa Milano Went from 172 Pounds to 126 Pounds after Giving Birth

All the details from ET Online:

The 43-year-old actress went from 172 pounds to 126 pounds after giving birth to her daughter Elizabella 16 months ago, thanks, in part, to the Atkins low-carbohydrate diet (she is 5’2”).

“I feel so much better than I did before it’s crazy,” Milano told ET. “You know that feeling when you’re dieting where your stomachs growling and you’re angry and moody? There’s none of that, because you’re getting fats and proteins. It’s great!

With two young children at home (Milo, 4, and Elizabella, 1), dropping the weight makes it easier for her to keep up with her growing family with husband Dave Bugliari. She opened up about what motherhood has been like for her.

“Every aspect is amazing,” she gushed. “I looked at Milo’s feet the other day. He’s got these two toes that cross each other, and I was looking at my husband’s feet. Those are where those toes came from!”

One aspect that has been particularly rewarding for Milano is being able to breastfeed.

“It’s been a joyous time to be able to feed them,” she said.

The actress has come under fire for posting pictures of herself breastfeeding, but she considers the practice to be a beautiful thing.

“It is just an amazing process that my body is giving her nourishment,” she said. “Women — we are the most perfect machine ever made.”

As much as she enjoys using her body to feed her children, Milano cleared up the misconception that breastfeeding helped her lose weight.

“I don’t know who started that myth, but breastfeeding to me makes it harder,” she said.

Kate Hudson: “No meat, no dairy, no gluten and I try to stay away from sugar”

On her diet:

“I live by a rule book of eating alkaline – no meat, no dairy, no gluten (and) I try to stay away from sugar – but I’ll cheat when I want to, since I’m a bit of a foodie. I try not to make it not so much about dieting, but rather everything in moderation.”

On working for her shape:

While I try to keep my fitness regimen consistent, during awards season, I’m especially conscious of what I’ll be wearing and plan my workouts accordingly. If I plan to wear a sleeveless dress, I concentrate more on my arms during my workout the day before. If my outfit includes a short dress, I incorporate more leg moves and squats. If I feel like I need a little color, I’ll get a natural spray tan. Not only does this give me a little extra coverage, but it also allows me to achieve the bronzed look I want without the sun damage.

… says Kate.
