Jessica Alba, 31, has two daughters— Honor born in 2008, and Haven born in 2011. She has a new cover story with Net-A-Porter, and the interviewer (an expectant mother) asked how Jessica got her toned body back so quickly after two kids.

Her secret? "It was brutal; it’s not for everyone,” Jessica said. “I wore a double corset day and night for three months. It was sweaty, but worth it.” That sounds literally like torture.

According to RadarOnline, Jessica also got i-LIPO treatments on her stomach and thighs to help her lose weight. “Jessica had some laser liposuction treatment, which is a far less invasive way of melting away unwanted pockets of fat,” a source told RadarOnline back in November 2012. "She looks absolutely amazing already and really doesn’t need any help at all but she said she still feels self-conscious about the ‘stubborn fat’ that she can’t get rid of with exercise alone, so this is the ideal way of blasting them."

That's what happens in Hollywood — since looking perfect is so tied to getting work, there's a lot more pressure to lose weight right away instead of at a normal-person pace.
