Holly Madison showed off her bikini bod in early May, a mere 6 weeks after giving birth to daughter Rainbow Aurora. I thought she looked great and not overly photoshopped. But these “candid” photos of her jogging are a lot more realistic. She obviously looks fantastic, but you can see some stretch marks and tummy a little less taut and a little more soft than she usually has. I really love her for this. Yes, it’s an obvious publicity ploy — we all know she called the paparazzi to shoot her jogging — but I still love it.
According to the Daily Mail, this is how she’s getting back to her pre-baby body:
Throughout her pregnancy Holly stuck to a healthy diet and exercise regime.
After Rainbow was born, Holly consumed 1,100 calories a day to help shed the excess 40 lbs gained during those nine months of pregnancy.
1,100 calories is SCANT, especially considering she’s working out every day. Hope she’s getting a lot of protein..
For those of you who gave birth, how long did it take to get your body back in shape, or at least to a place where you were satisfied?
