Get Your Pre-Pregnancy Figure Back with These Easy Steps


Motherhood is truly a miracle, but the changes a woman’s body goes through can be quite difficult on her to handle. Apart from taking care of the new baby, the biggest struggle of almost all new mothers is to shed the pregnancy weight. Losing that amount of weight requires a substantial amount of effort, and the catch is that new mothers can barely make time for themselves after taking care of the baby. However, it is important to return to the previous body weight not just for aesthetic reasons but also if you to avoid multiple health problems in future. If you are a new mother wondering how to accomplish this seemingly impossible feat, go through this list and make it happen by following these easy steps!
Set realistic goals: This is the most important step for your physical as well as mental health. While you may be dying to get back to your pre-pregnancy wardrobe, it is mandatory to give yourself a 6-week break after childbirth. Only after 6 weeks is it safe for you to start working out. Even then, we recommend going slow initially. With calorie deficit of 3,500 to 5,250 calories per week, you will be able to shed a majority of your weight within the next 6 months.
Consider breastfeeding: For both the baby’s health and your own, doctors suggest you should feed your baby. It burns up to 500 calories a day, not to mention the strong foundation it builds for the baby’s future.
Pay attention to diet: Focus on consuming the right kind of food that is nutritious and beneficial for both the baby and you. You should not count calories at all for the first six weeks post birth. Crash dieting is an absolute no-no. Eat foods high in fibre and protein and stock up on healthy snacks instead of consuming food with refined sugar. Avoid processed carbohydrates and stick to whole foods like fresh fruits, vegetables and meat.
Avoid alcohol: For feeding mother and new mothers trying to kick off the extra pounds, this general rule of weight loss applies-avoid alcohol. It dehydrates your body and slows down the metabolism. It also contains a lot of extra calories which are not going to help you at all while you are trying so hard to watch every calorie you eat.
Exercising: If taking care of your growing baby is not exercise enough, we recommend you start easy before going full hardcore with weights. Make sure to get a green signal from your doctor before you start exercising. Start easy with brisk walks and then you can take up running, cycling, swimming, dancing and other such activities.
There you go new mommies! These easy steps will help you lose your baby weight in no time at all. Chalk out a plan and get started on getting in to the best shape of your life!
