Jessica Simpson showcased her sexy bikini body on Instagram, where she spotlighted her 70-pound post-baby weight loss.
Jessica looked gorgeous in a red-and-white bikini top that accentuated her flat abs and ample cleavage.
Simpson, who has maintained her 70-pound weight loss since 2013, is her own best advertisement for her Jessica Simpson clothing line, which fits women of all sizes.
The 5-foot-3 Simpson lost 70 pounds 6 months after giving birth to son Ace Knute in June 2013, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported. Jessica lost the same amount of weight after giving birth to daughter Maxwell in May 2012.
Simpson’s weight loss secrets were a low carb diet and rigorous workouts.
Jessica’s low-carb diet typically combines high-quality proteins like salmon and chicken with fresh vegetables and salads. She also avoids processed foods and limits sugar.
Low carb, high-fat diets like the Atkins and ketogenic plans promote rapid weight loss by inducing the body to burn body fat for fuel, said obesity expert Dr. Eric Westman, co-author of Keto Clarity.
Dr. David Ludwig, a physician and nutrition professor at Harvard University, agrees.
Low carb diets keep blood sugar levels stable, suppress appetite, and enhance mental clarity and mood, said Dr. Ludwig, author of the bestseller Always Hungry? Conquer Cravings, Retrain Your Fat Cells.
Other celebrities who credit a low-carb diet for their bangin’ bikini bodies are Britney Spears and Kim Kardashian, who lost 65 pounds in 5 months on the Atkins diet.
Jessica Simpson also works out at the gym for 45 minutes, four days a week, with her celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak, creator of the 5-Factor Workout DVD.
Pasternak and Jessica usually work out at the gym four days a week, combining 10 to 20 minutes of cardio exercise, 20 to 30 minutes of resistance training, and lots of flexibility moves.
Harley said the foundation of Jessica’s workout routine is lots of walking. Pasternak, author of 5 Pounds, also trains Lady Gaga.
