Postpartum Appetite Management For Help Losing Your Postpartum Tummy Pouch

Jun 27, 2008
Postpartum life and pregnancy itself present various challenges as far as diet and fitness are concerned. In this article I will suggest a method or two for staving off those between meal cravings.

It seems that since the beginning of time cravings have been a huge part of pregnancy and postpartum life. One could even make a case that controlling cravings or between meal snacks is something that we all should aspire to for life. It is common knowledge that snacking is a major culprit in the fight against obesity in the western world.

You have to admit that when one of these evil craving comes over you, if you can just make a good decision the craving will be satisfied by whatever you choose. I have found that instead of following your feeling you should do your best to be conscious or mindful of your snack decisions. When you take the time to think for just a second you will make better choices. Of course it helps to rid your pantry of all high sugar low nutrition snacks, so that they are not right in your face everyday.

Replacing Postpartum Snacks & Meals:

Most nutritionist are on board with the idea of eating small meals more often during the day instead of eating the traditional three big meals. The idea being that your body will not go into starvation mode there-by keeping your metabolism on a faster track. The problem with this eating 6-to-8 meals a day is that life tends to get in the way.

Before you know it 4 hours have gone by and you get a hunger pain. One of the best solution for this is liquid meal substitution or smoothies. There are some very good concoctions out there now. These things are not your parents smoothies. Today smoothie shakes have both nutritional value and great taste.
