2: Use Superfoods to Kick Food Cravings
"The first place I gain weight is in my rear end," laments Kourtney. "I love my butt, but I have a tendency to get saddlebags there, so I need to watch it." She's found the easiest way to lose and keep off the extra pounds is with a clean diet. When she got pregnant, rather than the crazy cravings many women have, Kourtney yearned for healthy superfoods, like steel-cut oatmeal with almond milk and manuka honey. "My friends told me I'd get fewer colds if I used that honey," she says. "I swear it's stopped my allergies."
Kourtney's health kick turned into a lifestyle change after Mason was born. "My mom gave me the Beaba baby food maker that steams and purees fruits and veggies," she says. "I use only organic foods for him, and it made me think about what I put into my body too. I couldn't sit around eating cookies and expect him to eat vegetables." The transition was easier than she thought it would be, she admits. "I fell in love with salmon, which I hardly ever ate before. And I used to eat salads, but now I'm having side dishes like spinach and carrots too. It wasn't just because it's good for me—I've discovered I really liked eating that way." For a snack, she relies on a QuickTrim Fast-Shake. "It's only 110 calories, but it fills me up," she says. "Plus, it's full of vitamins, so I never have to think about it—it's so easy and addicting."
