A lot of celeb moms claim to lose those pregnancy pounds superquickly just by breastfeeding, a little healthy eating, some light exercise, etc.

But Jessica Alba? Well, at least she's honest about how her post-baby body bounced back so fast.

In a new interview with Net-a-Porter magazine, the 31-year-old mom of two admits her weight loss technique was "brutal."

"I wore a double corset day and night for three months," she said. "It was sweaty, but worth it." She also said the intense method is "not for everyone."

Yeah. New mamas, don't try that at home without talking to your doctor first. That said, Ms. Alba was back in a tiny bikini looking amazing just months after giving birth, so clearly there's a method to the madness.
