Mother of three Kourtney Kardashian was already flaunting her post-baby body on Instagram, just six weeks after giving birth to her latest son Reign Aston Disick.
Kourtney Kardashian’s New York based yoga teacher Leila Johnson has revealed the secret of the reality star’s weight loss to E! News: “Everything she eats is very fresh, handmade, less processed, less garbage.
“We make our own roasted trail mixes. We use coconut oil, raw pumpkin seeds and other nuts.”
Leila Johnson continued: “Kourtney is a Ghee goddess! She is obsessed with ghee. It’s clarified butter…She cooks with it and you can eat it on an empty stomach.”

Leila Johnson, who is a co-host of The Healing Planet, said that Ghee can absolutely help with anxiety while also keeping expectant moms more grounded.
The yoga teacher assures fans it’s not just a healthy diet that can contribute to weight loss. A well-planned fitness routine can do wonders for any new mom.
“One of the tricks for losing weight is spending the first few weeks doing as little as possible, just hibernating at home for the first 6 weeks,” Leila Johnson revealed.
“[Kourtney Kardashian] does that every time, her weight comes off so fast. She just does gentle walks and breast feeds.”
“She’s past the 6 weeks now and she is starting to get into an exercise routine,” Leila Johnson said.
“She’s doing some cardio now – walking and running.”
Kourtney Kardashian recently confessed on Instagram, she still has 14 “stubborn pounds to go” that could take her routine up a notch.

Jessica Simpson famously struggled to shed her baby weight after piling on 60 lbs while pregnant with her first child, baby Maxwell.
And despite gaining half that amount the second time around, Jessica Simpson is apparently having just as much of a battle with the bulge.
According to reports, Jessica Simpson “feels really, really frustrated” with her weight loss post-pregnancy.
A source told OK! Magazine that slimming down “has been really difficult this time around” and added that the singer turned Fashion Star mentor “would just rather play with her kids than work out”.
“She feels really guilty whenever she leaves them,” the insider explained.

Jessica Simpson, 33, gave birth to son Ace Knute on June 30, just 14 months after welcoming her daughter Maxwell Drew into the world.
And her fiancé Eric Johnson has apparently been very supportive about her taking a slower approach than many celebrity mothers, who result to drastic measures to lose the weight quickly.
“He tells her to stop putting so much pressure on herself,” the source said.
“He says that they can work out together, cook together, and the weight will drop right off.”
The insider added that the retired NFL tight end “is so happy with his family” and “doesn’t care about the weight as much as Jessica does”.
Jessica Simpson also has support in the form of her trainer Harley Pasternak, who according to reports is encouraging her to shed the excess pounds slowly but surely.
Harley Pasternak “reminds her it took her a long time to put on the weight – she had two back-to-back pregnancies,” the source said.
Kim Kardashian is now said to be worried her fans are losing interest in their former idol after she deliberately remained in hiding for two months following the birth of her daughter North West.
Her sister Kourtney Kardashian was on hand to remind followers of Kim’s existence on Wednesday, by tweeting a bikini snap of the two taken on holiday in Mexico in 2011.
With the strange caption: “Squallay. kimkardashian,” the shot shows the siblings walking on the beach with Kim Kardashian showing off her killer curves in a green bikini.

The vintage picture comes as the new mother is battling to lose the baby weight, ahead of her “big debut”.
After welcoming her daughter with Kanye West on June 15, Kim Kardashian decided to hide out at her mother’s house until she had shed the excess pounds.
But two months on Kim Kardashian is now afraid that she has waited too long to showcase her slimdown and that her star power is slipping.
“Kim has had this plan to show off how great she looks after giving birth and selling the pictures or videos for a lot of money, but she’s getting worried that it’s been too long and people aren’t as excited about seeing her anymore,” a source told RadarOnline.com.
“Kim is used to having millions of adoring fans begging to see her all the time, but there has been a shift in her fan base and she’s getting nervous that people don’t care as much about her,” the insider revealed.
Kim Kardashian is even worried that she can’t compete with the world’s most famous birth, that of Prince George.
“After all the excitement the whole world had for Kate Middleton’s royal baby, Kim had hoped that people would care about her that much, but now she’s freaking out that they’re not.”
Desperate to keep tongues wagging about her, Kim Kardashian stuck out her own tongue in a silly Keek video that she posted to social media on Tuesday.
This followed Kim Kardashian’s first post-pregnancy appearance in a brief video for Kris Jenner’s daytime chat show earlier this month.
Kourtney Kardashian showed off her newly svelte beach body, after shedding over 40 lbs following the birth of her one-year-old daughter Penelope.
Kourtney Kardashian, 34, has recently made it a habit of parading around in various skimpy bikinis as she vacations at the Setai Hotel in Miami, Florida.
Wearing her dark locks over her shoulders, Kourtney Kardashian appeared to be enjoying the feel of the soft wind caressing her skin as she strolled along in the warm summer weather.

The reality star sported a gold pendant that rested over her sternum, bringing attention to her incredible post-baby curves.
Kourtney Kardashian donned simple rubber flip flops for her frolic on the balmy coastline.
Sporting her stripy two-piece, the dark-haired beauty dipped her toes in the frothing surf.
Kourtney Kardashian has been on holiday with her long-time beau Scott Disick and their two children Penelope and 3-year-old Mason.
Speaking of her dramatic weight loss after birthing Penelope, Kourtney Kardashian told US Weekly magazine earlier this year: “It was harder to lose weight the second time around.
“I gained 45 pounds with Penelope. I’m 5ft tall so that’s a lot.
“It took me twice as long as last time but I feel healthy and really much better about it.
“This time, the focus is really on being a mom and being present, knowing my priorities.”
Kim Kardashian has apparently made her first public appearance after the birth of her daughter North West.
Kim Kardashian, 32, had been keeping a low profile over the last month while she settled into motherhood with baby North West, who she gave birth to on June 15.
She was allegedly spotted as she tried to travel incognito in her nanny’s car in Southern California.
An onlooker told Radar Online: “Kim looks amazing, she really does. She’s dropped a lot of the baby weight already.

“Not to say she still doesn’t have a ways to go, but she looked slim and was glowing.”
Kim Kardashian and boyfriend Kanye West are yet to give the world a first glimpse of their baby daughter North and the star made sure no one caught a peek during the outing.
The source continued: “As for the baby, Kim and her helper kept a blanket over North’s car seat so nobody could catch a glimpse.”
Kim Kardashian’s outing is the first time she has been spotted in public since giving birth to baby North prematurely, but reports suggest the normally publicity eager star has been getting claustrophobic at home.
A source said: “Kim is excited to have the whole world see her baby, she is saying that she knows that everyone will love her as much as she does and she wants people to see how beautiful she is.”
It was not, however, little North West’s first reported outing.
It was claimed earlier this month that Kim Kardashian took her newborn to stepfather Bruce Jenner’s Malibu beach house where he was hosting a family Fourth of July party.
The world is waiting with bated breath for Kim Kardashian to be photographed with her youngster for the first time, after they were released from hospital together on June 21.
According to reports, Kim Kardashian’s bra size has gone up to F, and the reality star is said to be concerned that she won’t be able to lose the baby weight she has gained once her first child is born.
“Kim’s panicking that the weight will just keep on stacking on and will never come off,” a source close to Kim Kardashian told InTouch magazine.
“Not only is she vain, but she knows that her body is what makes her money. She’s built an empire on it. But as much as she tries to be good, she just can’t stop eating.
“It’s like something has taken over her body, and she’s miserable.

“(She’s) freaking out about her body.
“She’s always played up her sex appeal, so she’s terrified she won’t be able to get her body back after the baby is born.
“She’s completely neurotic about her looks. She recently gained six pounds in one week. She said, <<Even my armpits are fat, I don’t know what’s happening to me>>. She’s got to do something, because her body is everything to her.”
However, speaking to reporters at the E! Upfronts event on Monday, Kim Kardashian said she had gotten more used to pregnancy, is more comfortable in her skin and is no longer feeling the aches and pains of expectant motherhood.
“Now I think I’m past all the awkward phases and stages, and once you feel the baby kick it’s a whole new experience,” Kim Kardashian said.
“I finally really embrace it. I love it now, but it took a minute. It was a lot, you know, a lot of body changes and stuff.”
Kim Kardashian, 32, has received a lot of scrutiny over how she’s chosen to dress her baby bump.
For a while she avoided maternity clothes, wearing see-through tops and leather pants.
Kim Kardashian also opted to still wear designer clothing but in larger sizes that maybe weren’t meant for an expectant woman.
She said that she’s not only feeling better, but is pretty calm about giving birth and isn’t nervous.
“At the beginning that was what I feared the most, and now, I mean, it’s inevitable,” Kim Kardashian said.
“It’s gonna happen. I’m really not worried or nervous.”
Kim Kardashian and her baby’s father, Kanye West, know the gender of their child but are keeping it a secret.
She said she’s careful when she goes shopping to not give anything away.
“We buy all white,” Kim Kardashian said, laughing.
“Or we’ll go and buy both [girls’ and boys’ clothing], and then no one will know.”

Speaking to chat show host Ellen DeGeneres, Jessica Simpson recently said: “The first pregnancy I like let loose and I kind of ate everything that I wanted to eat and I just really enjoyed it.
“This time around I think because I was doing Weight Watchers and I felt super healthy. I’m not really craving as much and I know how hard it is to get off so I’m trying to make healthier, wiser decisions.”
However, Eric Johnson was positively enamored by her blossoming figure.
Jessica Simpson said: “Apparently Eric still wanted me. So I can gain as much weight and I will have a husband to be that loves me.”
She explained her whole pregnancy has been different the second time around, with her finding the experience “exhausting”.
Jessica Simpson said: “It’s the complete opposite. Like with Maxwell, I felt amazing. Like I could do everything, eat everything. Do whatever I wanted.
“I had a lot of energy. This time around, I’m like exhausted. Eating Tums. That’s my snack of choice.”

Beyoncé has opened up about her struggle to lose weight after pregnancy.
The singer has revealed she gained 57 lbs while carrying her daughter Blue Ivy, who was born in January 2012.
Beyoncé, 31, also said she regrets putting herself under pressure to get back in shape so quickly after the birth.
“I didn’t have a lot of time to lose the weight because I scheduled a show three months after I gave birth, which I would never do again!” Beyoncé tells Shape magazine.
In a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the interview, Beyoncé adds: “I’m not a person that is naturally very thin. I am a person that has to work at keeping my body in shape.”
But the singer insists women should embrace their differences and focus on health rather than the scales
“Not everyone is supposed to be the same. Be healthy and take care of yourself, but be happy with the beautiful things that make you, you,” she says.
Beyoncé was able to shed the excess weight doing a lot of cardio dance workouts, which got her moving and sweating.

She revealed to Shape magazine that 80% of her post-baby weight loss was due to cutting back on food including her favorite, pasta.“I ate a very low-calorie diet. I stayed away from red meat and ate a lot of fish, replaced pasta and rice with quinoa,” Beyoncé said.
“I always have breakfast, say, scrambled egg whites, a vegetable smoothie, or whole-grain cereal with low-fat milk. For lunch and dinner, I eat a lot of fish and vegetables. And throughout the day, I try to stay hydrated.
“I always treat myself to one meal on Sundays when I can have whatever I want. Usually it’s pizza, which is my favorite indulgence.”
Beyoncé poses in a color-block Karla Colletto bikini for the cover, and wears a bright yellow short-cropped top and floral shorts in one of the inside pictures.

Snooki is already back to her pre-pregnancy weight after eight weeks and she has posted a self portrait on her Twitter page.
The Jersey Shore star showcased a tiny waist and enviable legs as she pouted and posed for the camera.
Emphasizing her trim figure by putting her hand on her waist, Snooki, 24, already appears to have a figure most new mothers can only dream of.
And becoming a mum to baby son Lorenzo doesn’t seem to have held the star – real name Nicole Polizzi – back in the style stakes.
Snooki looked sexy and chic in a black military-inspired jacket with shoulder pads, a matching high-waisted miniskirt and a simple white vest.
The diminutive New Jersey resident completed her look with a gold belt, dramatic drop earrings, lashings of gold jewellery and a top knot hairstyle.

Snooki recently wrote on her Twitter page: “I fit in my skirts again WAHOOOO.”

She told People magazine after the birth: “I’m definitely trying to eat healthier – grilled chicken and vegetables – and I can’t really work out for six week, but then I’ll start hard-core training.
“I’ll get a trainer or I’ll try a boot-camp or go back to hot yoga.
“I gained 35 lbs, but I’ve already lost 10. I’ll bounce back.”
