Catelynn Lowell Considers Controversial Waist Training

Catelynn Lowell has struggled with her weight in the past, but it looks like she is ready to get fit. The reality show star gave birth to her daughter, Nova, back in January, and now she is ready to shed the baby weight and look great for her wedding to Tyler Baltierra.

This week, Catelynn revealed that she is going to try waist training, the latest trend that plenty of celebrities have been trying. Not only is Cate waist training, but as previously reported by the Inquisitr, Kailyn Lowry has also tried waist training. Other celebrities who have tried the controversial product including Kim Kardashian, Jessica Alba, and Khloe Kardashian.

Waist training has come under scrutiny, especially now that the trend is getting so popular. However, it is popular among many different groups, including women who recently gave birth, like Catelynn Lowell. According to Health, Dr. Caroline Apovian, M.D., says that it can help boost confidence.

“If it helps everything feel a bit tighter and there’s less jiggle around your stomach, it may help you feel better about exercising.”

Catelynn Lowell hasn’t revealed if she plans on working out while using the waist trainer.

Long term, though, Dr. Apovian points out that waist training isn’t likely to give you miracle results and can actually be harmful.

“Your stomach might get pushed up beyond the diaphragm, which could cause reflux. If you’re wearing one and you experience those symptoms, that’s a definite sign that you need to loosen it or take it off.”

According to Us Weekly, Catelynn’s weight struggles have been chronicled on MTV’s Teen Mom OG, with a recent episode revealing that her wedding dress is four sizes too small. Cate is set to get married to Tyler Baltierra this August and there is no doubt that she will want to be in her best shape. Of course, being in the public eye likely doesn’t help since there is so much scrutiny.

Cate’s pregnancy was also chronicled on the show as was her struggle with gestational diabetes. She admitted to eating not so great during the pregnancy and gained about 60 pounds while pregnant with her daughter. As of the most recent episode of the show, she revealed she had only lost 20 pounds of the weight she had gained while pregnant.

Teen Mom OG is set to air the finale soon, which will include Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra.
