The Biggest Loser host shares a “diet” of nutrition, fitness, and self-care to help mothers look and feel fantastic--before, during, and after pregnancy.
The Mommy Diet helps moms-to-be navigate through the complicated world of pregnancy, from pre-pregnancy all the way to nine months postpartum and beyond. The first nine months after birth are crucial for new moms to get back to their ideal weight and maintain a routine. Together with a team of experts, Alison Sweeney, busy mother of two and popular host of NBC’s The Biggest Loser, breaks down each stage into helpful, monthly subsections to help moms stay healthy--without losing their mind in the process. For pre-pregnancy, she encourages women to be as healthy, happy, and hot as possible. During pregnancy, Alison breaks it down trimester by trimester, dealing with morning sickness, food cravings, and maternity style, all the while reminding readers to keep exercising. After the baby arrives, she details the perils and pitfalls of carrying around extra post-pregnancy weight, being sleep-deprived, and possibly shell-shocked by all the changes to daily life.
As a working mom herself and someone who’s struggled with weight issues, Alison helps new moms get back in shape and stay that way--while still caring for their newborns--with straightforward tips, easy-to-follow exercises, and even the occasional recipe.
