Blake Lively is one of those women who just always look effortless.

Recently Kyle and Jackie O had the opportunity to chat to the beautiful Blake Lively about her new flick, The Shallows, and find out HOW she got not just bikini-ready, but bikini-PERFECT so soon after giving birth to her daughter, James.

She explained that she had eight months to get herself ready for filming, and there was something she did in order to get her pre-baby body back.

‘What we actually did was no gluten and no soy. ‘It seems like it was really easy to cut out but you realise there is soy in everything… Even if it’s healthy wholefoods or organic stuff there’s always soy in it.

There’s only one thing more terrifying than this…

‘But once you remove soy you realise you are eating just like no processed foods. That’s basically what I did.


‘No processed foods and then working out.’

The 28-year-old beauty went on to describe her figure in the film as the best she’s ever had. ‘I was ready to get back in shape but I’ve never been in that good of shape in my whole life,’ she said.

‘To do it after having a kid is actually really nice because you see your body after having a kid and it’s beautiful because you just gave birth but you’re like “Oh my God this is not what my body looked like”.’

Blake is currently expecting her second bub with husband Ryan Reynolds.
