Carnie Wilson is starting a healthy diet and workout regime. The former Wilson Phillips singer recently gained back much of the weight she had lost after her gastic bypass surgery. The 40 year-old mother of Lola, 3, said “I want to get pregnant again” and wants to be as healthy as possible before she and her husband, Rob Bonfiglio, welcome their second child.
On her motivation to start a healthier lifestyle regime: “I want to feel better. I was feeling very, very sluggish and depressed. I was really down on myself. I started having those feelings like before I had a gastic bypass where I just didn’t have any control over food and it was a frightening place to be and I was really tired of starting and then not following through, starting and not following through.”
On how she talks to Lola about healthy eating: “Yeah. I’m kind of careful about how I talk to her about stuff like this. What I tell her is, “Vegetables are good for you. We want to be healthy and feel good.” Very general. I’m not saying mommy’s on a diet — never. I’m not saying mommy wants to lose weight. I just don’t want to start that yet. I don’t think it’s necessary. I think it’s better to say, “I love these foods because they make me feel good and they’re good for me and they keep me healthy and strong.”
On eating Lola’s leftovers: “I’m not giving in. I used to give in and finish what she had on her plate. If I had nervous energy, I would walk by and pick up anything I saw. If there was food there, I would pick it up and eat it, for, I don’t know what reason! Now, I don’t even think twice. If there’s pasta left on her plate, I will just throw the rest out. I won’t start.”
