New mom Kim Kardashian is in no rush to lose the baby weight after giving birth to daughter North West three months ago. Kardashian's trainer, Tracy Anderson, rubbished reports that the reality TV star is dieting and working out obsessively to regain her pre-pregnancy body.
"She’s not concerned with working out," Anderson told NY magazine Sept. 11. "She’s just taking time with the baby. I knew she was going to be a great mom when I trained her during pregnancy."
Anderson, 38, has promised that Kardashian will look better after becoming a mom than she did before. "[Kim's] got me helping her, so she’s going to look better after pregnancy than she has ever looked," said Anderson. "I guarantee it.”
Kim, 32, reportedly gained over 60 pounds during her pregnancy. Anderson, who counts Gwyneth Paltrow, Nicole Richie and Jennifer Lopez among her celebrity clients, raised eyebrows last year after slamming pregnant women for gaining too much weight and using pregnancy as an excuse to overeat.
Anderson, a mom of two, boasted that she had shed the 30 pounds she gained during her second pregnancy just six weeks after giving birth (in May 2012) because she ate well and exercised while pregnant. She later backpedaled on the remarks.
Kardashian's post-baby weight loss is being heavily scrutinized amid criticism that the media obsession with celebrity moms who lose weight in record time makes non-famous women feel pressured to slim down quickly.
"The message that you just had a baby and you should lose the weight in two weeks breaks my heart,” said postnatal-fitness expert Lisa Druxman. “It’s unfair and unrealistic for a woman to put that type of pressure on herself.”
