Post-delivery: Take control of your body

How to lose weight after delivery may always be the first question that comes into the minds of new mothers. But it is always suggested to take time to recover from childbirth and then start your journey towards losing that extra weight because losing too much weight right after delivery can affect your body, and it may take much longer to recover than anticipated.

Plan your time

Plan your time

Since your body needs time to recover after delivery, it may take longer to recuperate if you lose weight too soon after childbirth. Before attempting to lose weight, it is recommended to wait until your next doctors’ appointment so that your healthcare provider can better assist with how you should put in your first step towards losing weight after pregnancy.

Breastfeeding acts as an added incentive

Breastfeeding acts as an added incentive

Mothers who are breastfeeding should lose weight gradually because losing weight too quickly may produce less milk. Breast-feeding can also aid in weight loss after pregnancy because fat cells stored in your body throughout pregnancy are utilised. Breastfeeding helps your body burn calories, which further results in weight loss.

Not eating is not an option. After delivery, new mothers usually forget to eat, which leaves less energy in their bodies and will not help them lose weight. It is understandable to adjust your eating habits as per your baby’s development but consuming the right amount of minerals and vitamins is what matter the most. So, it is essential to make wise chives that can promote healthy weight loss and also provide all necessary nutrients to the baby.

Focus on exercising daily

Focus on exercising daily

Diet and exercise go hand in hand. Out of 100%, 70% is the right diet, and 30% is the right exercise that can help you in losing weight. Start to lose weight only when you are ready and work on yourself bit by bit day by day and avoid rapid weight reduction, as it is unhealthy and taxing for the body.

Once your doctor gives you the go-ahead, start your warm-up by walking 10-15 minutes daily and then moving on with medium-level exercises.

Avoid fad or crash diet plans
