Who doesn't want to lose baby weight?
Celebrity moms including Lauren Graham, Courtney Cox, Mary Louise Parker, Julianne Moore and Kate Hudson turn to fitness expert Michelle Lovitt to keep their bodies strong and healthy.
Here are some of Michelle's best post-preggers weight loss tips:
1. Invest in a Heart Rate Monitor
Know how many calories you're burning. You can determine your maximum heart rate with this simple equation: 220 – your age = your max heart rate. Monitoring your heart rate is key to exercising at the right intensity (target heart rate zone) to meet your fitness goals.
2. Exercise at the Right Intensity
You should exercise at 60-85 percent of your maximum heart rate to lose those few extra pounds of body fat. Aim for 20-60 minutes of continuous exercise incorporating intervals in your target zone each session.
3. Stay Hydrated
If you are exercising to burn fat, be sure to consume at least 64 ounces of water per day, plus an additional 16 ounces for every hour of moderate-intensity activity.
4. Stay Hydrated
If you are exercising to burn fat, be sure to consume at least 64 ounces of water per day, plus an additional 16 ounces for every hour of moderate-intensity activity. (It'll ensure you maintain your muscle!)
5. Eat Breakfast Every Day

That seems simple enough!
