Blake Lively Cut Just TWO Things From Her Diet To Get Bikini Ready

Everyone knows there are two steps to becoming bikini ready. Step 1. Buy a bikini. Step 2. Put it on. Voila, bikini ready.

But in Hollywood, it’s a little different. Blake Lively dropped two things from her diet and followed a strict fitness regime to get her AMAZING bikini body ready for her newest movie, The Shallows.

If you’ve seen the trailer for Blake’s new movie, The Shallows, you’ll know that she spends about 95% of it in a teeny weeny bikini. Yeah, yeah, it’s Hollywood; they all look amazing. But did you know she only gave birth to her first baby, James, eight months prior to filming?

How Did She Do It?

It wasn’t easy and the actress has been pretty honest about what it took to get her in peak condition. From her grueling fitness routine to her strict healthy eating plan, she also cut two things out of her diet to get to her top physical condition. Not only did she have to have the physique of a surfer, the filming of the movie was physically tough on her too, so she needed to be fit.

Her fitness routine involved swimming laps for half an hour at a time, weights, kettle bells and interval training. Speaking with Kyle and Jackie O earlier this year, she says “I had no gluten and no processed sugars. Once you remove these, you realise you’re actually eating no processed foods. So that’s basically what I did. No processed foods combined working out.”

She Cut Out Sugar and Gluten

She goes on to say, “Just try not eating any processed sugar or gluten and you’ll soon realise hard that is,” Lively added, before admitting she had to endure watching others on set enjoying the baked good delivered every day.

“That was the hardest part,” she said. “They were making these fresh muffins every morning—those jack*sses. They smelled so good!”

So, if we stick to Healthy Mummy recipes, swim laps, do weights and interval training, do you think we’ll get Blake’s bikini body and have Ryan Reynolds fall in love with us?  We can but dream!!
