When it was time to welcome a baby girl, Blake Lively decided it was also time to say goodbye to a few tasty foods.
Once the actress began filming The Shallows, it was almost eight months after delivering her first child. But somehow, someway, the proud mom managed to get back into incredible shape for the role. So how did she do it? A strict diet certainly helped with the process.
"Well, what we actually did was I did no gluten and no soy," she confessed in a radio interview with the Kylie and Jackie O Show. "It seems like, ‘oh that's really easy to cut that out,' but you realize there's soy in everything. Even if it's the healthy, whole foods, organic stuff, there's always soy in it. Once you remove soy, you realize you're eating no processed foods, so that's basically what I did."
Is it just us or does that sound extremely difficult? According to Blake, it was totally doable and she still was able to savor some of her favorite foods.
"I was still able to have sugar and all of those things. It's all in moderation," she confessed. "You have a balance of protein, carbs and vegetables. And it wasn't the worst. I was eating rice and sushi, but just no soy and no gluten and watch how hard that is."
