Tori Spelling revealed that she lied about how she lost the baby weight after the birth of her fourth child. She did not eat healthy or exercise as she had recently claimed.

Following the birth of her fourth child, Finn, Tori Spelling declared she lost the baby weight by eating a healthy diet and doing low impact exercise. However, she confessed in her new book that it was all a lie, and she did not slim down the healthy way at all.

In her recently released memoir, Spelling It Like It Is, Spelling spills on a ton of scandalous declarations about her life. One of the revelations includes the actual way in which she shed the baby weight after Finn's complicated birth.

The former Beverly Hills 90210 star previously told Us Weekly that in order to lose the extra pregnancy pounds she gained, she followed a healthy diet and did low-impact cardio exercise.

"My doctor suggested I try swimming. It's good for the whole body and low-impact since you're weightless," Spelling told Us at the time. "So I started doing that in our pool in January."

She also said she was not trying any "extreme" diets. "We call ourselves the foodie family — we love food!" she said. But, the actress added that she asked her husband, Dean McDermott, to cook her more steamed vegetables rather than his typical gourmet dishes. Plus, she claimed to have cut out bad carbs, sugars and sauces in favor of healthier snack choices like hummus, rice cakes and avocado.

But, she revealed all that was a big lie and went on to confess what she really did to get back to her pre-pregnancy slim body.

"I really don't exercise much, period," she wrote. "So, I took off my weight the old-fashioned way. I like to call it the Just Keep Your F****** Mouth Shut and Eat Air diet. It's all the rage."

Spelling goes on to say how she was instructed by her publicist on what to say about losing the weight.

"Women didn't want to know that I had lost weight through dieting, not exercising," Spelling continued. "I didn't want to be the a****** who didn't work for it. So I said that I swam. It was sort of a bad choice. I can't do much more than a doggy paddle."
