Over the past few months, Mindy has been showing off her svelte frame in a string of figure-hugging ensembles on Instagram.

The star recently revealed she achieved her stunning weight loss by continuing to ‘eat what I like to eat’ – but ‘less of it.’

However while discussing her current diet with Entertainment Weekly she shared: ‘Honestly, I didn’t really do anything differently.’

The performer dished: ‘I eat what I like to eat. If I do any kind of restrictive diet, it never really works for me. I just eat less of it. ‘

Mindy, who recently shared a video of herself making gnocchi, did adopt a much stricter food regime to lose weight after welcoming daughter Katherine.

‘After I had my daughter I had to shoot a movie like two months later, so I was very much like: “Just give me grilled salmon and sautéed spinach. I’m going to eat that for three months,”‘ said the Mindy Project star.

Her movie Late Night, a comedy she led alongside Emma Thompson, began filming in Canada in April of 2018 just four months after Katherine was born.

Mindy then welcomed her son Spencer in September 2020, but the coronavirus lockdowns meant she did not ‘have those pressures’ of losing weight for a movie.

‘It was this almost extended maternity leave. I wasn’t going to be on camera, the studios were shut down, ‘the Oceans 8 actress said.

‘When the world started coming back a little bit I thought: “This kind of eating what appears, not taking any consideration for what I’m eating is probably not the way to go,”‘ she reflected during her new interview.

Mindy attended the Vanity Fair Oscar Party last Sunday in a show-stopping Dolce And Gabbana gown that flaunted her sensational figure.

Looking back on the outfit, she quipped that her children ‘normally think of their mom and: “Oh the slob that writes on her computer all day.” But when I had to get ready for all of these events, [to] my daughter I was like Elsa from Frozen. ‘

Said she: ‘I became completely transformed and she treated me completely differently. She was in awe. That’s really funny. I think, because of the pandemic, I hadn’t been getting dressed up as much. That was kind of fun, to wow her now and again. She is just at that age where that stuff is kind of interesting. ‘

Mindy has been famously tight-lipped about her love life and has not even publicly named the father of either of her two children.

‘My feeling is that until I speak to my daughter about that, I’m not going to talk to anyone else about it,’ she said after Katherine was born.

Mindy did not even announce her second pregnancy until she had already delivered Spencer and credited the coronavirus lockdowns with helping her keep her secret.

‘I mean, clearly, I was not going anywhere, like everybody else, so nobody found me out. So that was kind of easy, ‘she told Elle.

Mindy recently revealed on her Insta Stories that her diet still includes potatoes, which she filmed herself cooking with vegetables for breakfast.

She also included a snap of some challah she confessed she had slipped into her handbag during a dinner she attended the previous evening.

Nearly a year ago she gave Shape magazine an interview and said she would be adopting a less constraining attitude to food.

‘I would love to be the size I was when I was 32 or something, but I just refuse to beat myself up about it,’ she said. ‘I love to eat at restaurants, I love to eat home cooking, and I don’t like restricting my diet.’

She shared that ‘as long as I’m getting enough nutrients and feeling like my heart and my lungs are really getting exercise, I don’t really beat myself up about that.’
