After gaining 45 pounds with her second child, son Marcelo, now 5 months, Ali Landry tells Us Weekly she was anxious to get her body back for work on the drama Little Boy -- just 14 days post-delivery.

"It was pressure," admits the 5-foot-8 mom, 38, wed to producer Alejandro Monteverde.

So the former Doritos Girl turned to Chef's Diet meal delivery (chefsdiet.com), featuring a 1,300- to 1,500-calories-a-day meal plan based on the Zone Diet, which prescribes 40 percent calories from carbs, 30 percent protein and 30 percent healthy fats in each meal.
