I Haven't Been Starving Myself!
posted on May 2nd, 2011

There’s a false story about my recent weight loss circulating around the internet today, given to the press by a non-existent fanzine named “Number Zen.” This fictional entity pretends to have spoken to me at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books this weekend. And while I’m flattered at the praise for losing my baby weight, I’m horrified at the method by which they claimed I did it!

This made-up story would have people believe that I've been practically starving myself, due to being too distracted by writing my next math book and taking care of my baby.

Nothing could be farther from the truth.

I eat constantly because I’m still breastfeeding around the clock. My “secret” is what I eat – it’s all healthy food: Whole grains, lots of fresh vegetables, organically raised chicken and meat, and almost no refined sugar, dairy, or gluten. I don’t have a trainer, but I exercise at home – light cardio and yoga, and of course, breastfeeding itself is a great way to shed baby fat. But make no mistake about it. The volume of healthy food I eat is, well, huge!

Thank you to the Huffington Post, one of the entities that first ran the false story, for posting a CORRECTION! :) And check out the "Losing the Baby Weight - Part 1" post for more on what I've been doing to lose weight.
