Losing Weight After Pregnancy The Healthy Way
Powered by Max Banner Ads
For most new mothers, losing weight after pregnancy is a big concern. No matter how much or how little weight you gained, you would like to get back into shape as quickly as possibly.
You will, however, need time to recover from the stresses and strains that pregnancy and birth have put on your body. You cannot start a rigorous diet and exercise program immediately after the birth of your baby, as much as you might want to.
Healthy weight loss includes a balanced diet, with enough nutritional value to help your body recover and give your baby the nutrition he or she needs if you are breastfeeding. Cutting down on the sugary, fatty foods is a good idea, but you should not follow any diet that recommends cutting out entire food groups. If there is a program you would like to follow, consult your health care professional to make sure it’s the best one for you and your baby.
Your doctor will also advise you on appropriate exercise programs. Exercise will help you lose weight, and will influence your ability to keep the weight off later on. Remember that your body needs to recover and adjust to your new routine as well, so don’t overdo the training.
A C-section is like any surgical procedure – it takes time to heal. Do not dismiss this procedure – your body will need to recover fully before you start exercising, or you can do serious damage to yourself. Talk to your doctor – they’ll know what type of exercise you can do, and be able to advise you of the best time to start.
Before you start stressing out about losing weight after pregnancy, remember that your emotions will affect your baby. Be patient, keep to your diet and exercise program, and the weight will come off. Generally, if you lose weight gradually, it stays off – and that’s far better than gaining it again in six months’ time.
