The second-time mom (she and husband Cash Warren also have daughter Honor, 3) offered advice to others on Twitter about post-baby diet, too. "I would keep your diet as healthy as possible 6 days a week and give yourself one day to indulge."

Other Alba-approved post-baby fitness tips? "Start with walking and throw in 3 sets of lunges 20 per leg. Your could do it while strolling your baby."

Before giving birth, she admitted to Lucky mag that she needs a little help curbing her appetite. "I have a hard time with portion control, so I have 1,200 calorie meals delivered," she said. "But I also work out, so basically I'm starving. It sucks. I drink a lot of water."
