Pregnant Hilaria Baldwin flaunted her hot bikini body and burgeoning baby bump while vacationing with daughter, Carmen, 19 months.
Hilaria, a yoga teacher, posted several bikini selfies on Instagram, looking as gorgeous and fit as ever, thanks to daily yoga workouts and a mostly vegan diet.
Hilaria, who’s married to actor Alec Baldwin, exercises every day, usually doing yoga, taking Physique 57 body-sculpting classes or walking, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.
“I do some exercise every day,” said Baldwin. “I go to NYC’s Physique 57 (for classes) nearly every day unless I’m working or tired. I walk a lot, and early on [in my pregnancy] I went jogging — I’m a runner. I teach myself yoga every day.”
Hilaria also follows a mostly vegan diet, but occasionally eats fish, Examiner reported. Her Instagram account is filled with photos of her plant-based meals, which include lots of salads and green smoothies.
Baldwin said she plans to raise her children on a vegan diet at home, but will allow them to eat more flexibly when they go to a friend’s house or birthday party.
The anti-aging health and weight loss effects of a vegan diet are no surprise to Dr. David Katz, director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center.
“A diet of minimally processed foods close to nature — predominantly plants — is decisively associated with health promotion and disease prevention,” said Dr. Katz, author of Disease-Proof.
Dr. Neal Barnard agrees. “Studies suggest that free radicals [toxic molecules that form in the body] contribute to aging,” said Barnard, author of 21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart. “A vegan diet, rich in fruits and vegetables, is full of antioxidants which help protect the body from damage by free radicals.”
Hilaria Baldwin is the creator of At Home with Hilaria Baldwin: Fit Mommy-to-be Prenatal Yoga and appears in the workout DVD, Yoga for Weight Loss.
