Soon after giving birth to her son, Sparrow, on September 9, Nicole Richie started focusing on losing the 35 or so pounds she gained during pregnancy.
According to a friend, while Nicole didn’t put on as much during this pregnancy as she did with her first, she’s still eager to get her body back. “Nicole gave in to cravings during her pregnancy, but now she’s eating very healthy,” her pal explains. “She’s careful to get enough nutrients, but she is avoiding all sweets and processed foods.”
Nicole, 28, has arranged to have three nutritionally balanced meals a day delivered to her home, and she’s also breast-feeding Sparrow to burn extra calories.
The star has been working with a team of doctors and specialists whose focus is nutrition ever since she sought treatment in 2006 for an inability to gain weight. “Nicole understands that she has had issues with her weight and has gotten too thin before,” says the friend. “She’s doing this the right way now.”
