Blake Lively’s recent weight gain appearance is primarily due to her pregnancy. The It Ends with Us star recently gave birth to her fourth child on February 2023. However, the 35-year-old actress is working hard to get back in shape. 

Blake Ellender Lively is an American actress who made her professional debut in her 1998 film Sandman.

That’s correct! Blake Lively weight gain was primarily due to her pregnancy. That’s why, she took a break from public attention after giving birth to her fourth child on February 12, 2023. However, she has recently made a reappearance and stunned her fans by maintaining her pregnancy weight and is now set to be a co-star in the film version of Colleen Hoover‘s 2016 bestseller romance novel It Ends With Us with Justin Baldoni. Furthermore, it seems like the actress is working hard on maintaining her pregnancy weight gain.

Earlier this week, she was seen in a halter-style dress that highlighted her toned physique. Surprisingly, the secret to her healthy post-baby body weight gain was not a rigid, carb-free diet or excessive calorie control. And according to her longtime New York-based fitness coach, Don Saladino, a balanced lifestyle is the foundation of fitness. The fitness expert, who has worked with a number of A-listers including Blake’s husband Ryan Reynolds, Anne Hathaway, and Cindy Crawford, emphasizes the necessity of getting enough sleep, drinking enough water, and going on frequent walks to stay in shape.

Following this guidance, one customer lost nine pounds in three weeks by getting an extra 90 minutes of sleep per night. Later, Don told E! News, “It’s a fat-burner, and it’s free”, emphasizing the importance of seven to nine hours of sleep per night. Likely, Blake Lively herself confirmed to Australian radio broadcasters Kyle and Jackie ‘O’ Henderson that she follows a gluten-free and soy-free diet explaining,

I did no gluten and no soy. Once you remove soy, you realize you’re eating no processed foods. So that’s basically what I did. No processed foods and then working out.

Despite avoiding processed foods, Blake Lively eats a well-balanced diet of proteins, carbohydrates, and vegetables, with occasional treats of sugar, rice, and sushi. Don described how he prepared Blake for her The Shallows filming in two months, noting that, in addition to regular workouts, she ate four small, nutritious meals a day, with the help of a nutritionist. He said:

This is not training a fitness competitor or a model. She’s got to eat healthy. The way that we did it was the right way, and it wasn’t through starving her.
