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 didnâ€™t put on as much during this pregnancy as she did with her first, sheâ€™s still eager to get her body back. â€œNicole gave in to cravings during her pregnancy, but now sheâ€™s eating very healthy,â€ her pal explains. â€œSheâ€™s careful to get enough nutrients, but she is avoiding all sweets and processed foods.â€
Nicole, 28, has arranged to have three nutritionally balanced meals a day delivered to her home, and sheâ€™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. â€œNicole understands that she has had issues with her weight and has gotten too thin before,â€ says the friend. â€œSheâ€™s doing this the right way now.â€
