Most of mothers worry about getting back to pre-pregnancy shape soon after delivery. But dont forget your body has gone through a lot of changes and for a long term health you must loose weight safely and in healthy way.
Here are 5 important tips for Desperate New Mommy
1. Rest for first few weeks: Your body has been through major changes in past few months. Your bones are not yet ready for the weight loss workouts. Also the day and night breastfeeding sessions are energy consuming. Your main aim should be eating healthy for baby's growth and your body to recover from delivery.
2. Start with Stretches: Basic neck-back-knee strengthening stretches are ideal for you to start with. Anyway these 3 body parts are weaker than pre-pregnancy and also for life long health you need them strong. For upcoming heavy workouts you need your Neck, Back and Knees very strong so lets start preparing them.
3. Do not fall pray for internet Before-After stories : Most of those "How I lost baby-belly in 2 weeks?" are not true. And even if very very few of them are true it is absolutely unhealthy to loose weight so fast.
4. Drink lots of water and eat greens: Your body is constantly creating breast milk and you dont want to get loads of fats during this time due to lack of fluids and fibers in body. As your body will first use the liquid you drank for making the breast milk.
5. Make a healthy work out plan and healthy diet plan.
Make an easy and healthy work out plan in stages like first 3 months of stretches, next 3 months light work out etc.
The balanced diet is equally important so stay away from oily food, junk food, instant and packed foods and most important (extra) Sugar!
Life is long and you got enough time to loose that belly fats, for a new mom her priority is her baby. So take it easy dear lady!
