Heidi Montag’s gone through another radical body transformation. But don’t worry — this time, it was all natural.
Now, Heidi’s telling all about her weight loss and revealing if she would ever consider getting plastic surgery.
Speaking to Us Weekly, Heidi talks about her post-baby bod … and starts by talking about how much she gained while pregnant.
“I thought I would gain maybe 20 or 30 pounds during my pregnancy.”
Generally speaking, average weight women should gain 25 to 35 pounds during pregnancy. An underweight woman should gain between 28 and 40 pounds.
“But I gained over 45.”
That sounds about right, for a woman as tiny as Heidi.
It was only in February — four months after sweet baby Gunner was born — that Heidi says that she was first able to slip into a pair of jeans that were not maternity jeans.
But the wait, she says, made it all the more rewarding.
“It was very exciting.”
We’re sure that it was.
“It made me realize I’d lost a lot of weight,” she says.
How much, exactly?
The former The Hills star estimates that she’s down to about 107 pounds.
“I just had a baby, I’m very emotional.”
That’s no surprise. And it’s likely not a feeling that will go away for Heidi any time soon.
“I’m eating healthier than when I was pregnant, ironically, because I want to make sure Gunner has all the nutrients he needs.”
Well, you crave some things while pregnant, but don’t necessarily retain those same cravings when you’re lactating.
“Having a baby has made me really appreciate my body, not just how it looks. It’s just amazing, the human body.”
It’s great to hear that she’s appreciating her body. There was a time, of course, when she did not. She famously underwent 10 different surgeries in one day.
Is she feeling that way again?
“I have no temptation to have any kind of surgery after having a baby.”
She says that her desires at the moment are very simple.
“I want to breast-feed and have my breasts for that.”
She does hint that she might get something done … some day.
“Maybe I would get my boobs done after all the kids we have.”
One is tempted to imagine a devilish twinkle in her eye as she delivers that line and begins to dissociate, envisioning all of the different procedures that she might undergo.
Fortunately, however, she says that she’s no longer vulnerable to those sorts of temptations.
“But I might just be over that phase of my life.”
Heidi talks about her diet.
“I just eat whatever I want here and there. I try to make sure I get enough food instead of limiting food.”
She repeats the same meals.
“I pretty much eat the same thing every day.”
And she’s sort of humble-bragging about how she lost the baby weight in just a few months.
“The weight came off really easy. Actually, I wasn’t even trying very hard. I just try to eat really healthy.”
And she lists exactly what a healthy diet means to her.
“I try to have protein with every meal. I try to have vegetables twice a day. And then I also try to get some carbs in there.”
Take a look at how gorgeous she looks now!
She looks great!
And to hear Heidi tell it, losing that weight was incredibly easy.
“Every day is kind of a cheat day. So, if I just want a bite of something, I will. I’m not a person who has to have, like, the whole box of doughnuts.”
Before you think that her diet will be easy to emulate, know that, genetics aside, this is also a woman who goes on four hikes a day (one with each dog) and who also carries around a four-month-old baby.
Also, even with a seven-month baby bump, Heidi kept exercising. So … that’s the sort of person she is.
It’s no surprise that her body is so amazing already.
