Paleo diet spurred Kristin Cavallari's fast weight loss: 20 pounds in 2 months

Kristin Cavallari credits a low-carb, Paleo-inspired diet and regular workouts for her stunning 20-pound weight loss just two months after giving birth to her second son.

Cavallari, 27, said her post-baby weight loss secrets include weight-lifting workouts and her longtime organic diet modeled after the Paleo diet, which excludes processed foods and emphasizes high-quality protein like grass-fed beef.

"My diet is always the same," Kristin told E! "I don't eat any toxic chemicals and I try to eat organic as often as possible. We eat a ton of veggies, chicken, grass-fed beef, bison and fish. We also love sweet potatoes and brown rice pasta."

Paleo-Style Organic Diet and Weight-Lifting Workouts

Cavallari said her breakfast is usually a smoothie, oatmeal or eggs, while lunch is a salad or turkey sandwich. Kristin also snacks most afternoons, enjoying nuts with dried cherries, chips with hummus, or an apple with almond butter.

Kristin makes sure to eat healthy Paleo-approved fats such as avocados, olive oil and coconut oil. "I also love avocados with olive oil and sea salt and I put coconut oil in or on everything," she said.

Similarly, TV star Stacy Keibler, who's eight months pregnant with her first child, credited a low-carb Paleo-style diet for her healthy pregnancy.

Cavallari said she started working out just three weeks after her second son, Jaxon, was born (in May 2014). "I've been working out four to five times a week for 30 to 45 minutes at home, doing tons of leg work like squats, lunges and lifting weights," she said. "I want to start Pilates again to focus on my core."

Thanks to her hard work, Kristin is now just a couple of pounds away from her pre-baby weight. It's not surprising Cavallari lost her baby weight in record time. In 2012, she regained her slender pre-pregnancy body just three months after giving birth to son Camden.

The willowy 5-foot-6 blonde beauty previously revealed she's so obsessed with clean eating that she eats fast food just twice a year. Interestingly, Cavallari thought she looked fat when she starred on the reality TV show "The Hills" in 2009, and slimmed down dramatically a few years ago after seeing an unflattering photo of herself.

Kristin Is Anti-Vaccination: Says Vaccines Cause Autism

Cavallari's focus on natural health extends to all aspects of her life. Kristin recently came under fire after revealing she won't vaccinate her children because she's worried that vaccines cause autism.

"I've read too many books about autism," Cavallari told the HuffingtonPost. "There is a pediatric group called Home First. They've never vaccinated any of their children and they've never had one case of autism. And now, one in 88 boys is autistic."

Kristin expressed concern that the chemicals in the vaccines our children get are responsible for the escalating rates of autism. "Autism wasn’t prevalent — like it is now — years ago, so something is going on, whether it’s the chemicals in our food or the vaccines," she said. "Something is happening, and we can’t really ignore that."

Cavallari isn't the only celebrity who's opposed to vaccinations. TV star Jenny McCarthy, whose 11-year-old son Evan is autistic, has also slammed vaccinating children.

McCarthy has stirred controversy over the years after saying Evan's autism was caused by the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine he received as a baby. In 2007, Jenny was heavily criticized after launching an anti-vaccine movement.
