Strange as it may sound, the best time to lose weight and get into shape is, when you are pregnant! Without too much of a strain or bother, here are some exercises and dietary changes which can be followed even after the baby is born.

Get Started While You’re Pregnant

If you are still pregnant, it is normal to gain weight, but that shouldn’t mean you indulge in overeating. You will have cravings, but prudence now pays back greatly later on. Walk around the block once or twice a day. This will benefit you and the baby by getting your blood and lymph flowing and getting fresh air into your lungs.

Nature Gives Weight-Loss Advantage

Once the baby is born, there’s an immediate loss of 11-13 lbs. Breastfeeding also helps lose weight, using up approximately 800 calories a day. And after about 4-6 weeks you can start exercising. A little bit of weight training will go a long way to help you lose weight. You don’t have to join a gym or buy weights. Home workouts work just fine.

Get Plenty of Rest

If your baby is sleeping, so should you. Sleeping when the baby is asleep will allow you to avoid any long-term sleep deficits. This will keep your energy levels high and help keep sugar cravings for energy in check.

Natural Weight Loss Remedies

Many ingredients included in weight loss supplements are not approved for pregnant or lactating women. Consider some natural weight loss foods that will curb your hunger or affect your metabolism in a healthy way.

  • Apple cider vinegar in hot water
  • Lime and honey in water
  • Tea made from Indian plum leaves
  • Green tea
  • Cabbage dishes
  • Acai berry juice
  • Celery, tomatoes, and cucumbers (negative calorie foods)

Join the Company of Other Mothers

A mom who is on a second or third child can impart a lot of wisdom to a first timer. Also, it might be easier to take up jogging or going through a video workout routine if you have others in your situation doing it with you.

Watch Calories and Fat

Towards the end of pregnancy, women usually tend to eat less. Sometimes, however, moms birth and start eating larger portions after the baby is born. Use a little will power and fight the hunger pangs. Do let yourself have a treat sometimes, though.

Rethink Your Whole Eating Philosophy

During pregnancy, you may have felt as though you could eat anything and get away with it. You will need to change this mentality after the baby is born. Adopt a few new rules if they were missing from your diet before your pregnancy. The following strategies may help you lose weight.

  • Spread your calories evenly around the clock by having numerous small meals.
  • Breakfast is the most important meal.
  • Fish, beans, skinless poultry, lean meat cuts are good sources of protein, lessen hunger.
  • Have whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, and lots of low-fat dairy products.

Do Have a Regular Exercise Regimen

Getting back to working out should be a gradual process. You can start with some simple exercises. There’s a gap left in abdominal muscles right after giving birth which usually disappears within four to eight weeks. Make sure this gap is closed before doing belly exercises.

  • Pelvic tilts may help you reduce the belly fat.
  • Pilates and Yoga may help you gain strength and flexibly.
  • Bridge exercises help tighten abdominal muscles and strengthen core muscles.
  • An exercise ball is a great tool for tummy exercises after pregnancy.
  • Aerobic exercises such as swimming, biking, running, that will keep your heart rate up.

Do not rush into things, but do not be too relaxed either. Your body needs to be given enough time to recuperate and restore its normal processes. You may not lose weight as quickly as you would like, but if you stick to it and follow the guidelines above, you will ultimately please yourself. To understand and know more procedure to loose weight post pregnancy in a healthy way you can consult some of the best Gynecologist at Jaslok Hospital and Research Centre, Mumbai.
