Most new moms’ are anxious of losing post pregnancy weight, but it is imperative to think about the caloric needs after pregnancy. Weight gain in pregnancy is healthy and natural, but many women crave to return to their pre-pregnancy bodies. Just as it’s best to put on weight slowly and steadily during pregnancy, you need to be slow and steady in losing post pregnancy weight.
One good way of losing post pregnancy weight is to breastfeed! Always pair breastfeeding with other forms of post pregnancy weight loss activities.
A healthy diet is the best way to lose your pregnancy pounds. Focus more on nutrition not on weight-loss and the weight will gradually melt away!
According to nutritionists, for at least first three months of post pregnancy a woman should concentrate on eating healthy food instead of weight loss. Many side effects are seen due to pregnancy which can be taken care through proper diets. Managing household chores along with taking care of the needs of the newborn turns out to be toughest work for a woman post pregnancy. After the first three months pass by, one should consult a dietitian on how to lose excessive weight in a healthy way without crash dieting.
The best possible pregnancy outcome for mothers and babies is a lifestyle of good nutrition and healthy calorie burning exercise. A combination of dieting and exercise is a much more efficient way of regaining pre-pregnancy bodies than focusing on an after pregnancy diet alone.
There are many benefits to healthy calorie burning exercise after your pregnancy. It will help you lose those extra pounds put on during pregnancy, alleviate post-partum depression and, unlike dieting, it won’t interfere with your breastfeeding. Wait six weeks after a vaginal birth and eight weeks after a c-section to start exercising.
