Tips To Reduce your Tummy after Delivery

1. Breastfeed Your Baby

Breastfeeding is one of the best things that you can do to reduce tummy size after delivery. Breastfeeding is also good for the baby. It helps you to burn up to 500 calories in a day as well as stimulates contractions of the uterus which results in shrinking of the uterus to its pre-pregnancy size. Breastfeeding also decreases the breast cancer risk, protects against arthritis & diabetes as well as builds a strong physical and emotional bond between mother & baby. So, instead of providing supplement formula to your baby, go for breastfeeding.

2. Decrease Calorie Intake

Decreasing your calorie intakes is the easiest way to lose tummy fat after pregnancy. Lactating mothers needs extra calories for milk production so don’t reduce calorie intakes drastically. Milk supply will reduce if you start dieting soon after giving birth as well as you feel more tired. You should not consume sweets, chocolates, cakes, pastries and simple or added sugars. They only add unnecessary calories to your diet.

3. Diet

Proper and healthy diet plays very important role in reducing your tummy size. Proper diet helps you to get all the vitamins and minerals that are needed by you to feel energized all through the day. Always consume fresh vegetables and fruits that have lots of fiber, lean protein, low-fat dairy products and whole grains. Also, limit your sodium intake as it leads to bloating and swelling of the stomach. You should also avoid soft drinks as well as oily and junk foods that contain more fat.

4. Don’t Skip Meals

New mothers need more energy in the first 6 months after giving birth as they have to breastfeed the baby more often. Never skip meals or starve yourself in order to get flatten tummy. The metabolism process of the body will slow down by skipping meals. So, don’t not skip meals or cut out healthy food groups from your diet. Rather than consuming single portions of high-fiber foods eat 3 to 4 small and healthy meals during a day. Also, drink lots of water.

5. Aerobic Exercises

Aerobic exercises are very helpful to decrease unwanted fat from your abdomen. Aerobic exercises burn lots of fat faster than other exercises. You should do at least 30 minutes of Aerobic exercises 3 times a week. Start with some simple and light physical activities like cycling, walking or swimming. Then, increase the intensity of your workout. You can include also aerobic exercises such as jogging, dancing, biking, climbing stairs, yoga stretches or kickboxing.
