After seeing January Jones two episodes ago on Mad Men, I wondered exactly how much weight did she put on. As it turns out, she wore facial and body prosthetics and also used a body double. In fact, the real Jones is in terrific shape, especially considering she just gave birth. So what’s her secret?
Reports People magazine:
“I have a great doula who makes sure I’m eating well, with vitamins and teas, and with placenta capsulation.”
You read right: Jones is eating her own placenta. “Your placenta gets dehydrated and made into vitamins,” she explains. “It’s something I was very hesitant about, but we’re the only mammals who don’t ingest our own placentas.”
Jones has taken the capsules every day since right after she had her son, and also anytime she feels tired or down. Jones insists, “It’s not witch-crafty or anything! I suggest it to all moms!”
One reader at People.com says, “Personally, I could never fry it up and eat it or blend it into a shake. But I could totally take it in dehydrated, vitamin form.” How about lightly sauteed with garlic and olive oil and a sprig of thyme? No?
