The reality star said: “Little morning rant here. It’s just quite worrying actually.

“I keep seeing on Instagram new mums promoting extreme restrictive diets, the point of just giving birth and giving them a shake diet like food replacement shakes.

It really upsets me

“I don’t understand who’s advising them, suggesting this is a good idea? It really upsets me.”

Lucy went on to explain her eating habits after welcoming son Roman.

She added: “Ryan was amazing, he’d make me some nice meals most days, but other days, it’s tea and toast, and that’s fine.

“You’re so sleep deprived. The last thing you want is another pressure to lose weight straight away and go on a restrictive diet, especially when you’re breastfeeding.

“You’re not even supposed to be doing that anyway.”

But while Lucy usually ignores the posts, she felt obliged to comment today.

Furthermore, she said: “There’s only so much I can do and what I can do is promote the complete opposite, which is enjoy being a new mum. Don’t worry about losing weight.”
