Losing Weight After Pregnancy - Some Easy Tips To Do So!

by: Apurva Shree

As a woman, giving birth to a baby is the most fulfilling experience, but it comes with many challenges...such as losing weight after pregnancy. During pregnancy, you have accumulated many pounds of extra bulk, which you naturally want to get rid of. Don't lose heart: Weight loss after pregnancy is not only possible, it's actually not very difficult either. Just be patient and consistent in your efforts and you will see the results for yourself.

Some Weight Loss Tips To Look Out For -

Lets have a look of some weight loss tips to start with

  • Don't expect a miracle: The weight you have gained throughout the pregnancy period took 9 months to accumulate. Don't expect it to vanish just like that. Crash diets are not recommended for anyone, especially breastfeeding moms. So give yourself some time, to understand the procedure of weight loss and to let the measures work upon you. Eventually you will lose weight.
  • Start off slowly: Allow your body to heal properly after pregnancy before starting on heavy workouts, aerobics, etc. It takes 2 to 4 month's time for the body to get back in to normal mode and regain its strength. Meanwhile, you can do light exercises like walking, stretches, breathing exercises and generally try to be active, this will help in weight loss procedure.
  • Eat sensibly: Don't do on a diet which will rob you off the nutrients. You are feeding the baby, so take care that you have proper nutritious food. Avoid excess fat, spices and junk food as much as you can.
  • Have lots of water: Keep yourself hydrated, this will help your body in flushing out toxins and it's a good way to lose the pregnancy weight gain. Don't go for sodas, instead have natural unsweetened juices.
  • Breastfeeding helps: Yes, if you are breastfeeding your baby, it will aid in losing weight after pregnancy. Don't starve yourself, have a balanced nutritious diet and only that much take calories which you actually require to.
  • Exercise...there's no way out: Some or the other form of regular exercise is a must for quick weight loss. If you find it difficult to hit the gym regularly, which is the case with most of the new moms, then try walking, swimming, yoga, jogging....anything that will give you enough physical activity to burn off the calories. Take the stairs instead of the elevator, dance when you feel like, and just be active.
  • If you are interested only in structured exercise, you may get an exercise video. You can then work-out in the privacy of your home and according to your own time schedule.

  • Though losing weight after pregnancy is more difficult than losing weight otherwise, it's not impossible. With regular exercise, proper diet and your great resolve, you will soon start fitting into your good old jeans once again!
