Actress Blake Lively packed on the pounds when she was pregnant with her second child admitting on Instagram that the scale had gone up by 61 pounds. To lose it, Lively hired a personal trainer, Don Saladino, who make sure that she worked out regularly. “We kept the training very consistent,” Saladino told E! News about his workout plan for Lively. “We made sure that she was in the gym 4-5 days a week. Certain days, we worked for an hour, and other days they only had 20-30 minutes because she’s on a tough schedule with her kids.”
“The thing with Blake is that we always pay attention to food quality. The biggest misconception is food deficit. I don’t believe in that,” Lively’s trainer, Don Saladino, tells E! News. He goes on to explain that when you put yourself in a calorie deficit, you’re not only hungry, but you’re also missing out on your favorite foods. “I believe that we can still get a substantial amount of calories, proteins, carbs and fats to feed the body and become a fat burning furnace,” he explains. “That’s what we did with Blake. We did not put Blake on any crazy, strict diet. That’s not who she is. That’s not what she wants people to think she is. She enjoys eating delicious foods just like anyone else.” So you’re telling us that Blake was able to eat pizza and lose 60 pounds? Sign us up!
