Kristen Stewart Gained Weight? — Why K-Stew Is 15 Pounds Heavier
It’s common for actors to gain and lose weight for certain movie roles, and Kristen is no exception.
“In the before photos, Kristen [who is 5’5″] appears to weigh approximately 115 pounds, now she appears to weigh 125 to 130 pounds. You can see her stomach in her jeans now gives her a slight ‘muffin top’ around her waist and her thighs are a bit heavier,” celebrity nutritionist and Los Angeles registered dietician Lisa DeFazio tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She definitely has gained weight, however, it is not a bad thing! She was getting to be too thin anyway, and now it appears she is eating, looks healthy, happy and has some curves.”
So how did Kristen gain the weight so quickly?
“When trying to gain weight, there is a right and wrong way to do it,” Lisa explains. “Increasing calories is important, but the quality of the calories is just as important. An actor should not just eat cookies, chips and fast food! The fat, salt and cholesterol will accumulate in the body. The healthy way to gain weight is by eating lean protein like fish, chicken and beans, drinking high calorie weight gain protein shakes, including carbohydrates like rice and pasta, and fruits and vegetables.”
“Overall, I like the fact that Kristen is not afraid to show her curves, and young women obsessed with being skinny may relax a little and follow her lead,” Lisa adds.
We totally love it too!
Kristen Stewart: Could She Be Pregnant With Robert Pattinson’s Baby?
Kristen’s weight gain led fans to wonder if the actress was pregnant, possibly with Rob’s baby, but a friend of her’s told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that’s not the case.
“Kristen is absolutely not pregnant. She has put on a few extra pounds for a movie role and that’s it. She’s already so thin so a few more pounds makes a noticeable difference, she’s still thin,” the friend told us.
“Don’t get me wrong, Kristen would love to be a mom one day and have little rugrats running around, but not for a while. Her priority right now is her work,” the insider added.
