B-Yourself: Elizabeth Salstrand Fields


After graduating from the University of Alabama in 2010, Liz Fields wanted to be a model, but she became pregnant. Now, 11 months after giving birth to her daughter, Presley, she is trying again. Fields contacted an Atlanta agency and will take part in a runway fashion show in Cape Girardeau, Mo., in October.  Being pregnant myself, I was curious to know how she was able to bounce back to her pre-pregnancy body so quickly. “I was able to bounce back quickly due to eating healthy and breast feeding,” she says. “Yes, breast feeding. I’m able to burn calories everyday, and it allows my stomach to shrink down much quicker (that’s what ‘they’ say). I also try and avoid any soft drinks and drinks with a lot of sugar. Water is the best way to go. I love my fruits and vegetables, too.”
