Just six weeks after she gave birth to son Junior, Jordan looked amazing. The new mum lost an incredible two stone in just six weeks and has a figure that any new mother would be proud of. But the weight didn’t fall off as quickly as it did with her first child, three-year-old Harvey.
A source revealed: “After Harvey was born, her tummy snapped back into shape with no effort. This time around, it’s proving much harder.”
Nevertheless, she still managed to lose the weight in an incredibly short six weeks. Jordan puts her speedy weight-loss down to swapping some meals with vitamin packed juices which she makes at home. She said: “I’m eating avocados, pineapple, spinach and celery sticks, all mixed together. It sounds revolting but it’s delicious.”
She drinks the juice twice a day and then eats chicken or fish with vegetables or salad in the evening. She’s also stopped eating carbs which has helped to shift the pounds. Jordan’s combined her ‘juice diet’ with plenty of exercise and works out with a trainer three times a week.
As well as helping her to lose weight, she believes the juicing has helped banish any signs of orange-peel skin. And it’s not only Jordan that’s been losing weight for the wedding. Having got Peter to ‘comfort eat’ with her during her pregnancy, she’s now got him to join in her health kick. She said: “Pete’s been working out with me. He’s lost a stone and half.”
She did the workout not only in the gym, but at home too. “I was going to the gym or working with my trainer about 3 or 4 times before the wedding and then to get in shape for the DVD. Even though I felt pressure I didn’t want to get too thin. There are a lot of American girls like Nicole Richie and Teri Hatcher who look really thin and gaunt – it’s not nice.”
Katie says at home she just wears Pete’s old t-shirts to work out in. “I wear just a baggy tracksuit, baseball cap and wear no make-up! I put my headphones on with 80′s dance music and go for it. I want to see sweat – if I don’t then I’ve not done a good job!”
