Sara Haines, who has been married to her attorney husband, Max Shifrin, since November 2014, is a mother of three children.

The couple’s welcomed their first child, a son named Alec Richard, in March 2016, their second, a daughter named Sandra Grace, in December 2017, and their third one, a son named Caleb Joseph, in June 2019.

And while the television host and journalist enjoyed both the pre and post-pregnancy phases, she also gained weight during the process.

How Did Sara Haines Lose Weight?

During the Us Weekly Most Stylish New Yorkers party at Cathédrale on September 11, 2019, Haines took her time out to talk about her fitness plan and how she achieved weight loss post-pregnancy.

The TV host shared that she tried to get ahead of the weight gain by not overindulging when she was pregnant—no weight gain, no weight loss needed.

“Well, I always tried to watch in pregnancy because I know that’s an old tale: ‘You’re eating for two.’ The baby’s this big, he’s not eating much,” Haines said. “But I always watched during pregnancy that I didn’t put on too much.”

The same year in late June, while speaking with the outlet, Haines also revealed initiating her postpartum weight loss by doing “toning exercises” and “getting steps.”

“I always worry about steps in a day,” she added.

She further shared an instance after giving birth to her third child when she was trying to get ahead of the whole weight loss routine by getting her steps in at an early stage. And that was unusual for others, who later asked her what she was doing.

Is Sara Haines on Keto Diet for Weight Loss?

Unlike some people who undergo a strict keto diet for weight loss, Haines prefers a healthy food habit by following the paleo diet.

The paleo diet is based on the types of foods presumed to have been eaten by early humans, consisting chiefly of meat, fish, vegetables, and fruit and excluding dairy or cereal products and processed food.

In another instance, when one of her followers asked about one thing she wanted to change about the past, she responded by saying she wasted her time obsessing about her body at one point in her life.

Haines claimed she had overcome her obsession and now doesn’t let her weight define her.

Slams Body-Shaming Comments

The 43-year-old journalist took to Instagram on March 5, 2020, to address a handful of body-shaming comments. People also asked her if she was pregnant.

She posted a picture featuring her Good Morning America co-hosts KeKe Palmer and Michael Strahan, as well as professional wrestler Maryse Mizanin, and stated that she loved the way she looked even after having three babies.

Haines said it is not okay to ask a woman if she was pregnant since it is a private topic and no one knows what the other person is going through.

“It is also flat out body shaming when you say someone looks pregnant,” she added in her caption.

Her post was bombarded with positive comments from her followers on social media. “Goodness... you look gorgeous, three blessings and all! Your inner beauty radiates,” one fan praised.
