Catelynn Lowell Weight Loss

Catelynn has her pre-baby body back! Find out how she dropped the weight!

Teen Mom Catelynn Lowell is looking good! The 20-year-old reality starlet has dropped 18 pounds and ten inches through a combination of diet and exercise.

Like megastar Jennifer Hudson, Catelynn turned to Weight Watchers to drop the weight safely. “Weight Watchers devotees are allowed to eat their favorite foods in moderation using a points system, which basically equates to counting calories,” Alicia Hunter, weight expert and author of The Accidental Diet: From Fugly to Fox EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com.

“I would recommend that Catelynn eats several 100-200 calorie mini-meals per day that combine proteins and carbohydrates, such as half an apple with natural peanut butter or wheat crackers and a light cheese stick,” explains Alicia. “Another great summertime mini-meal to try is sliced turkey, roasted red peppers, olives, a thin slice of sharp cheese and cucumbers and shredded carrots drizzled with balsamic vinegar.”

Even though Weight Watchers encourages a slower weight loss than so-called fad diets, Alicia says that gradual weight loss leads to better results. “Those good life-long eating habits will have longer time to take hold and the lost weight will stay off!” she reveals.

Despite Cateylnn’s busy schedule — she’s taking classes, planning a wedding and filming the final season of Teen Mom (sad!), the reality star needs to make sure to squeeze in some workouts. “I would suggest that Catelynn do cardio (like a Stairmaster or circuit jogging) and light weights or toning exercises,” says Alicia. “She has a naturally-petite frame and she needs to be careful not to do too much with heavier weights, which could cause her to add bulk rather than slim down!”
