Naya Rivera got back in shape insanely fast after giving birth to her adorable son, Josey Dorsey. In fact, the actress shed a whopping 60 pounds in just seven months. So what is her secret?
Rivera’s resume covers all aspects of the entertainment industry from drama to comedy. Now, she is doing her most important role yet, as a mother to her son Josey whom she welcomed in September with husband Ryan Dorsey.
Although the 29-year-old actress, who is best known for her role in the musical comedy television series Glee, as cheerleader Santana Lopez, enjoys motherhood, it did take a toll on her body. Luckily, Rivera take her weight loss goal seriously!
“I completely let myself go when I was pregnant,” she said in the May issue of Fit Pregnancy and Baby. “Weight wasn’t something I wanted to focus on, so I ate anything and everything and had a blast.”

But as soon as baby Josey was born, Ribera dropped all sugary snacks in an effort to make her weight loss goal a reality. Although ditching sugar helped, the former Glee star actually credits the combination of healthy eating, low-impact exercise, and nursing as her best fat-blasting strategies.
The new mom also began taking spin classes three days a week, and her trainer focused on her core during workouts. “I was wearing maternity gear while working my butt off,” she gushed. One advantage she was happy to have was that she had been in shape before getting pregnant, “Muscle memory luckily kicked in,” she said.
