Simple ways to lose weight post pregnancy

All the cravings for those chocolate cakes and ghee-laden sweets during pregnancy are now seen in your body weight and you surely wish to get back in shape and look like a sexy mom.

Here are a few tips to lose those extra kilos and be the gorgeous mom...

Breastfeed :

This is not just good for the baby but helps the new mom lose weight. Doctors believe that breastfeeding burns around 500 calories a day.

Drink lots of water :

Drink at least 10 to 12 glasses of water a day. If your urine is yellow then this is a sign of dehydration. Drinking water will help refresh your body.

Balanced meals :

Since you are a new mom you cannot go on a diet. But make sure that whatever you eat is healthy. A well-balanced meal should include fruits, vegetables, lean meats, fish and low-fat dairy products. Try sticking to only fruits and vegetables.

Workout :

Don't get me wrong and go join a gym. Workout with your baby. By taking him/her for walks in a stroller or holding him/her in the baby backpack.

Eat only when you are hungry :

Don't give in to the cravings for deep-fried food. And don't skip meals, just because to want that sexy figure back. Remember you are breastfeeding and the baby gets his dose of nutrients from you. Plan your meals and eat a sensible amount of calories for each meal.

Join a postnatal exercise class :

Find out if there is one near your residence and join one. This is a good way to lose weight. Plus, you will get to meet and interact with other moms as well. If you are breastfeeding try to exercise after you have feed the baby.

Do not let the weight problem bog you down. Enjoy this new phase and have fun with the baby, while taking care of not eating too much

Hi vaishu,
Good evening.
Congrats!!

That's a good question, and the answer varies from woman to woman.
Yes, they will become smaller than when you were pregnant or nursing; in fact they'll probably go back to your pre-pregnancy size.

But if you gained a lot of weight during your pregnancy, and don't lose it all by the time you wean the baby, your breasts may be larger than they were before you got pregnant. (The size of your breasts depends on the amount of fatty tissue.) On the other hand, if you weigh less than you did before getting pregnant, then after weaning your breasts will be smaller than they used to be.

Whether they'll be "less firm" after you wean depends on the individual. They'll certainly be softer than when you were breastfeeding, but probably about as dense as they were before you got pregnant. Remember that time and gravity take their toll on all parts of our bodies, and as we get older, we tend to sag a little bit all over.
