Kristin Cavallari talks 20-pound Paleo diet weight loss and breastfeeding

Kristin Cavallari lost 20 pounds just two months after giving birth to her second child by following a low-carb, dairy-free Paleo diet and breastfeeding, CHF reported.

Cavallari said her obsession with healthy eating enabled her to lose weight quickly and feel her best. “I’m a freak about what I put in my mouth,” said Kristin.

“I’m constantly reading labels and I don’t eat any toxic chemicals, so I think that plays a huge role. I’m breast-feeding, which burns a ton of calories, and I can probably just thank my mama too.”

Breastfeeding reportedly burns 300 to 500 calories day. Cavallari said her post-baby weight loss secrets include weight-lifting workouts and her longtime organic diet modeled after the Paleo diet, which emphasizes high-quality animal proteins, healthy fats, non-starchy vegetables, and excludes gluten, sugar, alcohol, dairy, legumes, and processed foods.

The low-carb Paleo diet is the most popular diet around today, and has a huge celebrity following, including Tim McGraw (who credits it for his jaw-dropping 40-pound weight loss), Megan Fox, Jessica Biel, Robin Wright and Joe Manganiello.

Kristin Loves Grass-Fed Beef, Bison and Coconut Oil

"I don't eat any toxic chemicals and I try to eat organic as often as possible," she said. "We eat a ton of veggies, chicken, grass-fed beef, bison and fish. We also love sweet potatoes and brown rice pasta."

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

Exercises 4 to 5 Days a Week

Cavallari said she started working out just three weeks after her second son, Jaxon, was born (in May 2014). She exercises 30 to 45 minutes four to five days a week, focusing on toning her legs and butt.

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 slim 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. Surprisingly, 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. She has been a fitness fanatic ever since.
