How To Lose Weight After Being Pregnant

Jul 14, 2008
Learning how to lose your extra weight after giving birth is probably one of the first things new moms think about after having their babies. Going to the gym may be the last thing on your mind since I know you would want to spend more time with your new found treasure.

Just like you, I thought it would really be hard to get back in shape after I had my third child. I asked for some advice and tips from my dietician friend on how I could eat nutritionally (for my baby) and still lose weight. And after a few weeks I started to fit into my favorite old jeans.

Natural Ways You Can Lose Weight After Being Pregnant

1. Avoid Food Binges. I know you still get emotional highs and lows, that includes your hormones. And this is also one of the reasons why you crave for food constantly. You will be able to control this if you can keep your sugar leveled by eating mini-meals through out the day instead of 3 big meals.

2. Breastfeed Your Baby. Do you know that when you breastfeed your baby you get to lose 500 to 700 calories each day? During pregnancy, one of the reasons why you get fat is because your body is saving up for you and your baby's future. Your body knows that you would need fat for the purpose of lactation. Breastfeeding is not only good for your baby but it would also help you lose the baby weight that you've gained.

3. Walking Around And Showing Off Your Baby. Showing off your baby to the neighbors can do you good so take the time to walk around include the baby friendly parks. Walking everyday is extremely helpful in getting rid of the baby weight and not to mention the stress that a new mom feels too. So take a walk and it would be great if you could bring your baby too.

However, you should not forget that getting back in shape requires time so don't rush your body. Remember, you've just gotten through a tough time of bearing your child and showing him the world. Appreciate yourself for a job well done and most of all enjoy yourself!

Rushing into getting back in shape should not be your first priority here. I suggest that if you just continue eating a well balanced diet and watch your health carefully, for your safety and your baby's safety, you would eventually lose the pounds naturally.
