Brittany Aldean is opening up about her postpartum body and bouncing back after baby No.2.
The lifestyle influencer and wife of country superstar Jason Aldean admits she struggled with her confidence after the birth of their daughter, Navy, earlier this year. A case of “the baby blues” had her feeling down about herself so she decided to take matters into her own hands and focus on what she was eating.
“I felt like if I took charge and focused on my health and what I was putting into my body, that would reflect on the outside,” she shares.
Brittany turned to the South Beach Diet to drop the weight, and now, she’s been named the newest ambassador for the brand.
“I urge people not to fall into fads where you just don’t eat a lot. I think that’s a huge issue for people,” Brittany explains. “I like to keep my metabolism up, so that’s why South Beach works for me because I’m able to eat often and I don’t ever feel like I’m starving myself. I feel very healthy, I feel good, and in turn I’m losing weight.”
Along with following the South Beach Diet, Brittany got active, but she didn’t step foot into a gym. Brittany tells People that she prefers more “natural” exercises, like walking with her children, over lifting weights.
“My go-to fitness routine is anything that’s just naturally active. I like to do activities,” Brittany shared with the publication.
With two kids under two, Brittany understands what it’s like to fret over your body after baby. Her advice for new moms?
“Give yourself grace. Give yourself time. It does not happen overnight. Your body will heal in time and it will happen eventually.”
