Celeb Post-Baby Weight Debate

Kate Hudson

Despite the fact that Hudson gained 60 pounds when she was pregnant with son Ryder, she was back to her slight 112 pounds in what seemed like a nanosecond. She told reporters that she ate a pint of ice cream every day while pregnant and was "big and fat and jolly" -- then had to drop the weight fast in order to star in The Skeleton Key, which began filming three months after Ryder's birth.

How she did it: Under the supervision of trainer Joe Horrigan (who was hired by the movie studio), Hudson worked out two to three hours a day, six to seven days a week. The grueling regimen: walking, lifting weights, yoga, and Pilates. Her workouts, combined with a 1,500-calorie-per-day diet, melted off the pounds in about two and a half months.
