Controversial talk show co-host, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, graces the cover of Fitness magazine with her six-months-post-baby body. Elisabeth, who turns 31 this month, says:
“Body image has nothing to do with scale numbers, it’s how you feel inside.”This is the first time I’ve felt free from that, because I am working out in a way where I feel so strong that there’s no room for those doubts.” [Hasselbeck, mother to Grace & Taylor, goes on to say] “I finally told myself … ‘I’ve got some curves, I’ve got a bubble butt, but I don’t mind, because it’s what powers me forward when I run.”
Elisabeth says she’s been on a exercise routine of running, weight training, daily dashes and abdominal work and says, ”I feel like I’m an athlete again.’”
Her original goal was to lose weight and eat healthier in order to have more energy. With the assistance of a nutritionist, Elisabeth had a wheat-free diet designed just for her since she has celiac disease. This diet consisted of lean protein, vegetables, along with nutrition bars and nuts for snacks. Imagine what all of us could look like if we had a team of professionals working for us.
