Amber Rose: My dramatic weight loss was all due to diet and yoga workouts

Model Amber Rose credits a healthy diet and regular exercise for her sizzling post-baby weight loss.

"It took me like a year to lose the weight," Rose told E! Jan. 26. "I did it the natural way, so I just tried to eat right. I'm a Philly girl, so I grew up on Philly cheese steaks and stuff like that. But yeah, just trying to eat right and exercise, and it finally came off."

The 5-foot-8 Amber tipped the scales at 203 pounds during her pregnancy. She gave birth in February 2013, and lost weight gradually by following a portion-controlled diet, doing yoga, and working out with a trainer 90 minutes a day.

Rose, 30, said celebrities who lose baby weight in record time give false hope to new moms, who often struggle with weight loss.

Amber underscored that she lost weight naturally — through diet and exercise — and did not resort to plastic surgery. Rose advised fans via Instagram to not jeopardize their health just for a number on the scale:

Absolutely no surgery, just diet & exercise. Most celebs give u false hope when u have a baby. (My son was 9 lbs) and in 3 months ur supposed to be skinny again...

It's not realistic in most cases. It takes 6 weeks to heal before u could even work out. Anyway, the moral of the story is losing baby weight the natural way takes longer but it's much healthier for ur body and helps u stay strong to carry another baby. So don't put ur life at risk for societies standards of when ur suppose to lose ur pregnancy weight. Take ur time & don't take the easy way out."

Amber, who's married to rapper Wiz Khalifa, exercised and followed a portion-controlled diet (she ate everything, just not huge portions) while pregnant, which made it easier to regain her pre-baby body.

"I work out every day," she said. “It’s hard to get off baby weight. It’s a different kind of weight because for nine months you stretch your stomach out, and then it’s hard to get that back."
