Christina Aguilera is known around the world for her amazing voice. But recently she put her mega star career on hold to start a family. After the birth of her son, it was a matter of just a few months before her body was back to pre baby stage and looking better than ever. Christina explained that she started off working with a trainer for several weeks at the beginning of her pregnancy then began training on her own keeping sessions around 40-60 minutes 3-5 times a week. As well as training she also followed the advice of a nutritionist blog that she found while searching online! She ate clean 5-6 days out of the week then had her cheat day on Sunday.
Jessica Alba took a more natural approach. Sources stated that she revaluated her diet and went for a more green and organic approach. As well as having a more organic approach Alba referred to the Baby Bulge Be Gone program to help shed weight. As well as switching up her eating plan, Jessica also began taking a more lax approach on training. Although she did hit the gym 2-3 times a week she also began doing yoga and Pilates in home shortly after giving birth to her 1st daughter, Honor. Sources also reported that Jessica took up light cardio training including brisk jogging and biking alongside her fitness routine as well.
