Scarlett was also recently interviewed by Gala (a magazine out of Germany) and, in which she shared more about her post-baby weight-loss plan.

"It's just about trying to find time to go to the gym," she tells "I do the same fitness routine as my big muscle-man trainer. A lot of it is endurance, stability and strength training. I like to work up a sweat."

Scarlett says she's tried Yoga and Pilates, but "I always come back to a good old-fashioned athletic, full-body workout."

How about you: Did you gain or lose weight from breastfeeding? 

Look out for Scarlett in The Avengers: Age of Ultron (which I can't help saying in my THOR voice), May 2015.
