We have all seen Allison Sweeney gaining her baby belly over the last couple of seasons of the Biggest Loser but today I ran across the first pic of mom and baby on the People Magazine site. My Babies Planet Allison said in the magazine that she uses that, to find out about the most popular baby toys and the best baby car seat and stroller combo that she can get for get baby. When the time came for mom-of-two Alison Sweeney to shed the she gained while pregnant with daughter Megan Hope, 5 months, she drew from her experience as host of NBC’s The Biggest Loser.
“I’ve learned a lot about nutrition and how to count my calories” as a result of the show, she told PEOPLE at the second birthday party for pal Nancy O’Dell’s daughter, Ashby, over the weekend.
Losing the pregnancy with a Wii
Of course, juggling a diet and exercise routine with two small children and a busy career is tough, but Sweeney says she found a great ally in the EA Sports Active package for the Nintendo Wii.
Not only does it save the Days of Our Lives actress, 32, the trouble of having to find a babysitter, but it is straightforward enough that son Benjamin Edward, 4 ½, can play along as well, plus she doesn’t have to worry much at night
“It’s just a good example of how you can really get it done at home,” she says. “You don’t need to have a big fancy gym membership. One of the things we talk about on The Biggest Loser all the time is just how difficult it is financially to lose sometimes. And that isn’t an excuse anymore. There are really reasonable options.”
How did Allison keep the off this pregnancy?
Sweeney revealed that she gained less with her second pregnancy than with her first, in part by reaching for fresh fruits over processed sweets. She acknowledged, however, that indulging each and every craving is a right of passage for most first-time expectant moms. “You deserve to be spoiled but within reason,” she cautioned.
