A Typical Day For Brooke Burke

A Typical Day For Brooke Burke

Brooke Burke was all smiles yesterday as she picked up some Starbucks with daughter Neriah, 8, in Malibu. I have to say, Brooke looks fantastic! You would never know she gave birth to her son Shaya just 4-weeks ago. Brooke’s latest blog entry on Baboosh Baby talks about how she’s lost her baby weight through eating healthy, exercise and her Taut belly wrap.

Hi,

I squeezed into my jeans today, yeah! I am not sharing that to boast or to make anyone who is struggling with her baby weight feel inadequate. I simply want to tell you what I have been doing in hopes that it may help some of you.

First, I have promised to keep this blog real so I will start with some of my Tauts thoughts. Binding your belly after birth can get really annoying, but boy does it work! I cannot wait at times to take it off and I do that for short periods through out the day when I need a break. Also, if your skin gets itchy or irritated, take it off for a few hours and let your tummy breathe. Other than that, I have been wearing it 24/7 and every few days I can make it a little tighter.

Lots of people have been asking about my diet so here goes. I never ?diet?, but I do believe in creating healthy eating habits that you can enjoy and stick to. I try to eat 5 times a day, small meals, every three hours or so. If I get too busy, some of those meals may be a protein bar or simply an apple and some almonds. Here is a typical day for me:

Breakfast

oatmeal made with water, with a little brown sugar

coffee with milk and sweetener

Snack (choose one)

Non-fat yogurt

Low-fat cottage cheese with fresh pineapple

protein bar (Luna or Zone)

Lunch choose one)

chicken, lettuce, tomato, avocado, cucumber in a whole-wheat pita with olive oil, vinegar and Dijon dressing

sushi – mostly sashimi style

chicken/lettuce/cheese burrito

(I also love Matzo ball soup that I make at home with chicken, carrots and celery.)

Snack (choose one)

apple with a handful of almonds

protein shake made with nonfat milk, ½ banana, tsp. almond butter and a scoop of whey protein

tuna fish salad with celery or carrots (use low-fat mayo)

sliced turkey with almonds

Dinner (choose one)

fillet mignon with Caesar salad and asparagus

sushi

grilled salmon with veggies

chicken with a salad and grilled veggies

(Sometimes at night when I am too tired to eat a full meal, I have a bowl of my favorite cereal, Smart Start, with blue berries and non-fat milk.)

These are just some options. I never starve, and I know that the only way for me to lose weight fast is actually by eating more often and keeping it smart. I avoid carbs later in the day. I never drink juice (too much sugar) and I try to stay away from bread, especially white flour. I drink lots of water with lemon and hot green or fresh mint tea. I only drink water, never soda. I do have a glass of red wine with dinner sometimes, which I really enjoy. I keep my meals small and try never to skip them. I know how hard it can be to find the time, but many of these options can be prepared in advance and you can grab them on the go. I really do enjoy what I eat and if I am craving something bad, I have it, but only a few bites! Small smart meals really work. Give it a try.

Good luck!

Brooke

    At least she’s being real about how she’s losing the weight. That tummy binding sounds interesting, but irritating.

    Oh please, she is totaly trying to show off her new belly wrap in hope’s of making a few buck’s. I wonder if the plastic surgeon’s money is running out, because I doubt the old beach rat is making real money…………..

    I used to work as an RN on Labor & Delivery, and we would put “binders” on our post-op c-sections. The patients loved them, and some would even ask if they could have an extra one to take home, because they didn’t sell them anywhere.

    You’re right Lisa! Only socks…. Now what is it with this new “barefoot/only socks on in the streets” fashion out there in the USA ?! I don’t get it. That’s dirty!

    Btw, nasty feet Brooke. Forget the blue nail polish!
