Kendra Wilkinson, now Mrs. Hank Baskett is an American television personality and glamour model. She is well known for her role on the E! reality television show The Girls Next Door, on which her life as one of Hugh Hefner’s three girlfriends was documented. Although not a Playboy Playmate, she has appeared in three nude pictorials with her Girls Next Door costars and fellow Hefner girlfriends Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt. Her own reality series, Kendra, debuted in June 2009.
And just eight weeks after giving birth via c-section to a 9-pound, 5-ounce Hank Baskett Jr., Kendra Wilkinson is on the cover of OK! in a bikini. She looks great, unbelievably so. “I’ve had a post baby weight loss of around 25 pounds, but it has nothing to do with the scale,” she says. And: “Getting into a bikini in only eight weeks was definitely nerve-racking.”
Want to have a body like new mom Kendra Wilkinson? You’re in luck as she shares her weight loss diet secrets in OK! Magazine. Here are her weight loss tips:
“I had a healthy weight loss which was a diet plan that’s all about portion control, healthy choices and not mixing proteins and carbs in the same meal because they digest differently.”
Weight Loss Tips #2: Skip The Scale
“Chart your progress with how your clothes fit, not what the number on the scale says.”
Weight Loss Tips #3: Don’t Cut Everything Out At Once
Kendra craved ice cream and pizza in her third trimester. “I can’t just go from that to eating salads. I’m phasing it out, little bit by little bit.”
Weight Loss Tips #4: Keep A Weight Loss Goal In Mind
Kendra wants to surpass Kim Kardashian’s famous Hollywood booty! She also wants to wear a slinky Hervé Léger dress for hubby Hank Baskett.
Weight Loss Tips #5: Snack Smart
“I really like cold, raw vegetables — especially baby carrots.” Dip them in some hummus or fat-free dressing for a low-cal midday munch.
Weight Loss Tips #6: Indulge Once In A While
Like some other celebrities in Hollywood who are in a healthy weight loss, Kendra allows herself a cheat day in her weight loss diet plan. She allows herself to eat red meat once a week, coffee in the morning and, when the craving strikes, “Flamin’ Hot Cheetos! I love them!”
Weight Loss Tips #7: Don’t Overload Your Plate
Carb-loving Kendra still eats pasta and rice. “It’s just all about portion sizes in your weight loss diet plan.” A sensible amount is 1 cup, about the size of a tennis ball.
Weight Loss Tips #8: Eat The Right Fats
“You should keep some fats in your diet plan if you are breastfeeding. They’re good for both mom and baby!” Add avocados; nuts, such as almonds, hazelnuts and pecans; and seeds, such as pumpkin and sesame, to your diet plan.
Weight Loss Tips #9: Adapt Your Schedule So You Have Time To Do Fitness Exercise Program
“My fitness exercise program involves going to the gym when Hank comes home. We take turns with who gets to exercise!” Strive for 30 minutes of fitness exercise each day.
Weight Loss Tips # 10: Ease Into a Fitness Exercise Program
“From carrying a baby for nine months, my back is really messed up. So I’ve been trying to do fitness training that involves strengthening my core before I start on crunch exercises.”
And to further take her fitness exercise program to a higher level, the former Girls Next Door star, Kendra Wilkinson has decided to shoot a fitness DVD called Be A Knockout with Kendra . Together with celebrity fitness trainer Nicky Hollander, Kendra prepared a fitness exercise program that is designed to sculpt your body and shed any extra pounds. Hollander has been a big weight loss help for Kendra who was understandably concerned about her weight after going through C-section to give birth to her baby. Hollander’s wife had three C-sections, so he is able to understand what is happening with her body, as Kendra confessed.
“It was a culture shock to see my post-baby body. I don’t want to go back to size-2 jeans. I want to stick to my curves. I’m focusing on sculpting my body. I’m a huge athlete.”
The fitness exercise DVD was released this summer and Kendra said working on the Be A Knockout with Kendra fitness exercise DVD has been a great experience for her, giving her motivation to lose weight and get her body back in shape.
