In today’s Healthy Hollywood feature: Talk about a boardroom ready body! Just four months after giving birth to her second child, Ivanka Trump looks va-va-voom sensational.
She flaunts her buffed body in skinny jean and a belly-baring top on the cover May’s Shape magazine.
At 5’ 11”, Donald’s daughter has the look of a model but she’s got the brains of a business executive. This busy lady juggles three jobs — she’s a judge on NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice,” started her own accessories line and also is an executive at the Trump Organization.
“I’m fortunate to be part of the generation that benefits from the groundwork laid by my mother and her peers. Today we’re not just professionals or parents – we can be both,” explains Ivanka to Shape magazine.
In addition to her busy schedule as a professional and mother to kids, she also takes time to take care of herself. Prior to her pregnancies, Ivanka reveals in Shape she ate like a teenager, adding, “Carbs three meals a day, usually in the form of pizza or pasta. But, when I was expecting Arabella (her daughter, now 3), my attitude towards food changed, and I began thinking about nutrition in a whole new way. I pushed myself to eat more lean protein, primarily chicken and salmon. Slowly I started to actually enjoy, if not crave these healthier options.”
Thanks to her healthy eating habits, she didn’t have to worry about resorting to drastic diets after she had her two kids.
“I don’t believe in fad diets. I tried a juice cleanse and it was a total disaster. For the eight hours that l lasted, I felt like I was on the brink of starvation. For me, it’s all about making the right choices,” adds Ivanka.
