Kristin Cavallari, who’s pregnant with her third child, is staying fit by working out regularly and eating well.
Kristin posted an Instagram photo July 21 during an intense gym workout, where she lifted weights while sporting a growing baby bump.
In the Instagram photo, Cavallari looks slim and athletic in a black tank top and black yoga pants.
Kristin is a fitness fanatic who lost the baby weight two months after each of her pregnancies, thanks to a low-carb Paleo-style diet and regular exercise.
Cavallari is a fan of the Paleo diet, which limits processed foods and emphasizes high-quality proteins like grass-fed beef and bison, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.
“I’m a freak about what I put in my mouth,” said Cavallari. “I’m constantly reading labels and I don’t eat any toxic chemicals, so I think that plays a huge role. I’m breast-feeding, which burns a ton of calories, and I can probably just thank my mama too, you know.”
Cavallari said her breakfast is usually a smoothie, oatmeal or eggs, while lunch is a salad or turkey sandwich.
Kristin also snacks most afternoons, enjoying nuts with dried cherries, chips with hummus, or an apple with almond butter.
Kristin also eats plenty of healthy, Paleo-approved fats like olive oil, avocados, and coconut oil.
“I also love avocados with olive oil and sea salt and I put coconut oil in or on everything,” she said.
Fitness expert Robb Wolf, author of the bestselling The Paleo Solution, said Paleo isn’t a fad diet because the emphasis is not on calorie restriction, and it provides a healthy balance of protein, vegetables and high-quality fats.
Clinical trials have shown the Paleo diet is the optimum diet that can lower the risk of cardiovascular disease, blood pressure, markers of inflammation, help with weight loss, reduce acne, promote optimum health and athletic performance, said Loren Cordain, author of The Paleo Diet for Athletes and The Paleo Diet Cookbook.
Kristin’s rapid post-baby weight loss isn’t surprising, since she lost all her baby weight in three months after her first pregnancy (in 2012).
Cavallari began working out just three weeks after her second son, Jaxon, was born (in May 2014).
Kristin exercises 30 to 45 minutes, four to five days a week, incorporating weightlifting, Pilates, and lots of squats and lunges.
The slimline 5-foot-6 blonde beauty previously revealed she’s so obsessed with clean eating that she eats fast food just twice a year.
Interestingly, Cavallari thought she looked fat when she starred on the reality TV show “The Hills” in 2009, and slimmed down dramatically a few years ago after seeing an unflattering photo of herself.
Kristin has come a long way from “The Hills.” She’s now a successful designer with her own clothing line and is the author of the book Balancing In Heels.
