A lot of the Teen Mom stars have had some major glowups since they first appeared on television on 16 and Pregnant. Of course, some of them have also had… glowdowns… while others have perhaps glowed in a more sideways direction.
While a lot of the moms are looking hotter than ever, Chelsea Houska may take the cake for the most stunning post-pregnancy transformation. And considering that she’s had three children now, she continues to shock fans with her slim figure. So just how does she do it? Luckily, she’s finally revealing her secrets.
It’s totally natural for women to gain weight while pregnant, and sometimes it can be something of a challenge to keep the weight off afterward. Many of the Teen Mom stars have been open about their struggles with body image and self acceptance, or even the ways that they’ve lost weight themselves.
But considering that Chelsea Houska is in the club of Teen Mom stars who have had three children, fans are constantly impressed when she shows off super slim selfies.
Recently, Chelsea shared endless selfies while she was taping for the Teen Mom 2 reunion, and now she’s sharing all of her secrets.
“I’m happiest when I’m healthiest, that’s why I’m SO excited to continue my Profile journey. There have been so many new products at @Profile_Sanford it’s hard to keep up! Umm Profile Ice Cream?

Some fans were thrilled about her update and were quick to share their support. But not everyone was so impressed, and fans sounded off with their disappointment in the comments.
“I was disappointed when I looked at the ingredients in one of the shakes and it had sucralose 😕 I always try to avoid artificial sweeteners,” wrote @angela.smith.fit. User @melie_k wrote, “Aw no… not you too 😓 this makes me so sad… I love you, or I did before this toxic diet culture being spread around as ‘health’.” User @jalyssaxo_ wrote, “Dont look like your enjoying it.”
In fact, Chelsea has given a bit of mixed signals about how she loses weight, and fans think she might not rely on Profile as much as she claims.
“How did @ChelseaHouska lose her baby weight? Need tips!” wrote one of Chelsea’s fans on Twitter last year. Chelsea shot back quickly, “Low carb ?.”
“She also does Crossfit, working out and lifting,” another fan chimed in to say. But busy mom Chelsea pointed out, “I wish I still did CrossFit 🙁 I haven’t been to a gym since I was pregnant haha.”
Apparently, for Chelsea, it’s all about what she puts in her mouth. Shockingly, she’s revealed that she hasn’t just lost her baby weight… she’s gotten down to an even lower weight than she started at!
“I’m on a strict/low carb diet,” she told fans. “It was not easy! But I’m 10lbs less than I was before I got pregnant, so it’s been worth it.”
She went on, “I do easy/quick meal prep. Lots of chicken breast and broccoli microwave steamers!”
Some fans recently even made some bold speculations about Chelsea’s weight. “She looks beautiful and also here’s a gentle diagnosis for her: she must still take prescription stimulants for ADD,” one wrote. “1) That’s why she’s so thin despite her body’s natural tendencies and recent pregnancies and 2) that’s why she’s having such a problem with panic attacks.”
Chelsea was quick to shut this rumor down as well. “I actually do not take that lol,” she wrote. “I am very dedicated to eating right on my diet.”
Luckily, some fans were there to offer her some advice as well. “One thing I am qualified to tell you though is issues with anxiety and panic attacks CAN go away (even if it’s not from taking anything),” a Twitter follower wrote. “Feels like h*ll but it’s NOT forever.”
