Women often have to get pretty hardcore to lose weight after having a baby. And the pressure for celebrities is even greater: they’re expected to drop the pounds in record time. Jessica Alba employed a fairly common weight loss strategy after giving birth to daughter Honor nine months ago. She banned all white food from her diet.
But apparently Jessica has a hard time sticking to the rule if anyone else is allowed to eat so much as a piece of bread. Not only does she refuse to let her husband eat white foods, she’s even barred her mother from enjoying them in her presence.
Jessica Alba keeps her post-baby body slim by avoiding processed foods — and implementing a “white no bite” diet, meaning she eats no white flour or sugar, reports Life & Style.
Alba, who quickly shed the 35 to 40 pounds she gained while pregnant with daughter Honor Marie, now 9 months, is making her whole family follow her strict diet.
“In order for her to stay thin, she needs everyone to be eating how she is,” an insider told Life & Style. “Even at restaurants, Jess will tell her mom to stay away from something.”

It seems a little of out of line to tell your mother what she can eat in your presence. Or anyone, really. It’s one thing not to keep or serve foods you can’t eat when you’re in your own home. The constant temptation can be too much to handle for some people. But to tell your mom she can’t order what she wants at a restaurant? That’s a bit extreme.
I’m a constant dieter so I completely understand how hard it is to be around the foods you can’t eat. But I tend to remove myself from the situation – like not go out to eat at restaurants and do something else with the person. It’s so unfair to say “I can’t eat this so you can’t either.” I will admit Jessica looks amazing… though I’m guessing she probably eats a lot of meals alone.
