Emma Bunton on postpartum weightloss after Beau's birth
Emma Bunton has never been a stick, and she doesn’t plan to be one, thank you very much. The 32-year-old Spice Girl and new mom to son Beau Lee, 6 months, tells Fabulous that she’s "always been curvy and I like being that way. [It’s] how I’ll stay."
Although she went into her pregnancy very fit, having just finished her run with Strictly Come Dancing, Emma reveals she "pigged out, I promise you" during her nine months. Currently a size 6, Emma explains that she took her postpartum period more slowly than her bandmates Mel Brown and Geri Halliwell, who hired trainers.
I didn’t feel any great pressure. It takes a while to lose the baby weight, but I didn’t feel I had tostarve myself. And obviously, going straight on tour hurried thingsalong a bit! I breastfed for four months, which helped. I did everything in moderation. I went to the gym three times a week, not seven — being stuck on a running machine for hours on end is so dull.

I wanted to do everything naturally without going ona strict diet. I made sure I got the right nutrients, just in smallerportions. If I felt hungry, I snacked on fruit. A diet withoutchocolate was never going to work. There are some things you can’t denyyourself. As much chocolate as possible, please!
