Like most Hollywood stars Jessica Alba quickly regained her figure after welcoming her first child last year, but the actress admits it didn’t come easily.
The 28-year-old, who’s daughter Honor was born in June, embarked on a vigorous weight loss
campaign for a Campari calendar shoot which was released in December.
“[The workouts] were horrible,’ she told the February edition of Elle magazine. ‘I cried. And I haven’t worked out since.’
But it seems her very best effort was not enough for tough Hollywood standards – photos leaked at the time showed an original shot of Jessica posing for Campari, and a slimmer, airbrushed final image.
Jessica also revealed that she resorted to a little wardrobe trickery to help slim down her waistline in the initial weeks after the birth.
She says: ‘I wore a girdle. Eight weeks after my girlfriend had her baby, you could see her six-pack. She told me to put an elastic band around my waist – any kind of band or girdle works.’ Source
