Carnie Wilson has lost nearly 40 pounds since she started her health and wellness program this spring. Carnie is now 20 pounds away from her weight-loss goal. She is determined to reach 150 pounds by October when she will start trying to have a second child with husband Rob Bonfiglio. Carnie recently opened up about her weight loss program and her baby plans.
On how she feels: “I feel sexier, energetic, youthful, healthier, more agile, more flexible and stronger. I feel so inspired to keep going. I’m in the home stretch!”
On her weight loss program: “I’m not allowing myself anything that’s off my regimen: no sugar, no carbs, no dairy, no red meat, no flour of any kind. It’s really strict, but I like how it feels. I’m eating blueberries, turkey bacon, egg whites and lots of raw vegetable salads. I make my own salad dressing with apple cider vinegar. My only fat is coming from olive oil. No avocado, no roasted nuts — just raw almonds. When I get hungry at night, I take a tablespoon of almond butter and that satisfies my craving. The only sugary thing is berries. When I ate that crap sugar food, I felt like crap. It’s incredible what eating all these vegetables is doing for me.”
On her baby plans: “We’re going to start trying in October. I’m going to mount my husband! [laughs] I have friends who are pregnant, and I want to be pregnant so badly. Two more months to go — it can’t come soon enough. We want a baby in my tummy right away.”
On if her pregnancy will affect her new wellness program: “My ob-gyn said when you’re eating this way, you’ll have minimal weight gain. It was very difficult having Lola. I just kept gaining. I’m going to feel better in my next pregnancy. I have this weird feeling I’m going to have twins. My sister just had twins. My grandmother was a twin. It’s a serious possibility!”
