Singer Christina Milian's Secret Weight-Loss Weapon

| by

Christina Milian gives credit to breastfeeding and exercise for helping her gain back her pre-baby figure, but she has one other weapon in her arsenal: her mom! The actress and singer, who gave birth to Violet in February, says that her mom's cooking has helped her drop the 45 lbs she gained.

"The first month, I lost weight drastically. On top of that, she cooked me a lot of raw vegetables and raw salads and proteins -- and it worked! I also drank a lot of water."


Christina says her family has been supportive not only in weight loss, but also in moral support during her split with husband, "The Dream".  The two married in September of 2009, but split after just three months and she filed for divorce just days before she gave birth in February.  

"I have a very supportive family, so between my mother and my sisters, they are helpful.


Congrats to her on all that hard work paying off!
