Dont Stop Eating Healthy After Pregnancy

Mar 2, 2008
Welcome to motherhood Holding your baby in your arms after pregnancy is one of the most wonderful moments of life. But make sure to retain these moments by continuing your healthy eating habits.

The biggest challenge for every woman is weight loss after pregnancy. This does not mean that you stop eating balanced food or start skipping meals. If you choose not to breastfeed, you can revert to your original pre pregnancy diet. But, if you choose to breastfeed, or are anemic, or have undergone a cesarean, then you need to take special care of your post pregnancy diet.

Smart Tips For A Healthy Diet After Pregnancy

Stick to nutritious foods like raw vegetables, fresh fruits, melted cheese on toast, yogurt with raisins, nugget type cereal, sunflower seeds, and others.
Sit in a relaxed posture and eat your meals. Never eat while standing or in hurry, as it makes you feel as if you have not eaten at all and you might overeat. It also leads to fatigue and digestion problems.
Make sure that you replenish the lost iron in your body. Eat lots of greens such as spinach, beetroot, and other iron rich foods.
Cut the intake of caffeinated beverages.
Ensure that you get sufficient sleep for quick recovery of your body.

Dealing With Constipation After Pregnancy

Constipation is one of the most common complaints after pregnancy. Here are certain ways to tackle it.

Exercising after nine months period is a must, not only to reduce constipation, but also to lose the extra pounds and keep you energized throughout the day.
Include lots of dietary fibers such as fresh fruits and vegetables, bran muffins, and highfiber cereals.
Drink plenty of water.
Have 4 ounces of prune juice followed by a few cups of hot water, or decaffeinated tea. Do this on an empty stomach.
Do not take laxatives on a regular basis after nine month. Contrary to the popular belief, they make it hard to get normal bowel movements back.
Try stool softeners containing fibers. Fiberall, Metamucil, and Fibercon are good examples. They mitigate constipation without posing the problems that are related to laxative use.

Besides a healthy diet and regular exercise regime, sufficient rest and sleep is vital for the new mom. Your body needs relaxation after passing through a busy ninemonth schedule. Let your spouse or family members share household chores so that you do not exert yourself after pregnancy.
