Stacy Keibler doesn’t use pregnancy as an excuse to blow her diet.
Keibler said her pregnancy fitness secrets were a low-carb Paleo diet and Pilates workouts, Examiner reported.
Stacy, a longtime fitness fanatic, said eating well is especially important when you’re nourishing your unborn baby.
“I really truly believe that pregnancy is not a time to have an excuse to eat donuts,” Stacy told Us. “[Pregnancy] is a time to be as healthy as you can be and build the foundation for your baby. I think that you should be even more conscious of what you’re doing.”
Keibler echoes the sentiments of celebrity fitness trainer Tracy Anderson, who slammed pregnant women who gain too much weight. “A lot of women use pregnancy as an excuse to let their bodies go, and that’s the worst thing,” said Tracy.
Anderson, who gained 60 pounds during both her pregnancies, lost all her baby weight within six weeks.
Tracy, who trains Jennifer Lopez, Gwyneth Paltrow and Kim Kardashian, shared her weight-loss secrets in her book, Tracy Anderson’s 30-Day Method.
Keibler, a former professional wrestler, said she hasn’t had any cravings, although she confesses she sometimes enjoys the occasional pizza. Stacy follows a low-carb Paleo-inspired organic diet, which helps her stay lean and healthy.
“Everything I eat or put on my skin is organic,” she said. “I only use organic products. Everything I put on my skin, basically I can eat.”
Keibler adopted a Paleo-inspired diet last summer and found she was able to lose weight without exercise.
“I was eating protein and vegetables,” said Stacy. “I did no gluten, no soy, no dairy, no sugar. I felt amazing. I actually lost weight without working out.” This isn’t surprising to fitness expert and triathlete Nell Stephenson. The Paleo diet works well for women because it reduces the blood sugar spikes and hormone surges that spur weight gain and mood swings, said Stephenson, author of Paleoista: Gain Energy, Get Lean.
Keibler’s workout routine includes prenatal Pilates and lots of stretching. Her usual workouts include lots of running, hiking, Pilates, lunges and weight workouts.
Stacy, who previously dated actor George Clooney, is married to tech entrepreneur Jared Pobre.
