Joy Behar bashed her, while Sarah Palin wanted “to punch critics in the neck.” Everyone it seemed had an opinion about Jessica Simpson‘s pregnancy weight. But according to celebrity fitness pioneer Jackie Warner, who is known for sculpting Hollywood’s best bodies, 31-year-old Simpson wouldn’t have been panned before the birth of baby Maxwell Drew Johnson, if she HAD made the effort to work out during the nine months of pregnancy.
“The body is meant to move and be active and we are in this age that we are inactive a majority of the week and that’s a huge mistake,” the host of Bravo’s Thintervention with Jackie Warner told Celebuzz. “If you’re working out during your pregnancy, the pregnancy not only goes better, the baby is healthier, and the weight falls off much quicker. It’s really really important to work out during pregnancy.
“I have trained many clients at nearly seven months along, so there really is a lot that you can do.”Simpson stepped out last week and showed off her shrinking post baby bod, heading to visit her personal trainer at a Hollywood gym. Will she be able to lose the weight as quickly as other stars, such as Jessica Alba or Gisele Bundchen?
“People are mesmerized when celebrities get the baby weight off so fast,” said Warner. “Well, it’s because they take good care of themselves during their pregnancy and have been eating healthy.”Her suggestion: In addition to dietary changes, women like Simpson need to be getting plenty of exercise, plus hitting the gym at least 4-5 days a week.
