Actress Olivia Wilde is in the new issue of Allure talking divorce. She married at just 18 years old and ended her marriage after nine years, “I got married at a very young age,” she explains, “so I sort of jumped into a stage of adulthood prematurely. I learned quite a lot.” While she gained knowledge over that time, she also reveals that she gained some weight. “I gained a lot of weight after my divorce,” Wilde says in the October 2011 issue of Allure. “And there was this sense of, ‘Wait, hold on. You don’t look like you did before. Are you going to be up for the same roles?’
Wilde stays fit by doing karate, yoga, running and spinning, and the media has taken notice. She was recently voted one of the Best Summer Bodies of 2011. So after you eat the divorce cake, curb the sweets and stick to healthy fruits and vegetables. There is no more need for cookie dough ice cream. If you’re not up for karate like Olivia, you can take long walks which are great for the bod and the mind. Before long you will be married to your new workout as it’s one of the best ways to stay focused after a divorce.
New Years brings change for everyone! We’re all beginning to ask ourselves, “What can I do better in 2011? Are there things I can improve? How can I be a better me?” Once January 1st hits the one resolution that many of us embark on is losing weight. In fact, if you recently got divorced, you may already be one step ahead of the pack.

Turn the negatives of a divorce into positives. Get into the best shape of your life! I found some great divorce diet info from an article in MORE Magazine:
A study shows that married people are more likely to gain weight than single people. Does that mean divorce can help you lose weight? Ever since the recent University of North Carolina study linked marriage to weight gain, people have asked me if the reverse is true. Can getting divorced help you lose weight? The answer is that sometimes, yes, breaking up can help you lighten up, but not necessarily for the obvious reasons.
