US Weekly has decided to pick up the mantle usually reserved for In Touch and Life & Style. This week, they feature Real Housewives star Bethenny Frankel and how just three weeks after giving birth she is already back to her pre-pregnancy size 4 and has lost 29 pounds of the 35 she gained during her pregnancy. Oh, and of course she does it all without dieting.
"I don't believe in diets."
Well, she might not believe in them, but she doesn't eat much food every day. She says that her typical fare each day is "a muffin and fruit for breakfast, a veggie sandwich and soup at lunch and BBQ chicken and a half a sweet potato for dinner."
Where is the fun in that? I know I say it everytime one of these stories comes out, but all the magazines are doing is making the majority of women who can't lose their baby weight quickly feel bad about themselves. I also think that these people know they are going to be posing in a bathing suit or bikini shortly after they deliver and do diet and exercise like crazy so they look good for the shoot. They then spin some yarn about how it all came off so easily.
