Best Way To Lose Baby Weight

Baby Weight is still weight… the best (healthy!) way to lose it is with a good diet and proper exercise. The difference between losing weight and losing baby weight is you just had a baby and your body doesn’t even feel like your body, so it’s more complicated. Your body feels different, your hormones are different, and not to mention you have a little life you’re taking care of too.

A good diet isn’t a diet, it’s just eating the right amount of the right foods. After pregnancy, dieting can actually be dangerous. Your body needs the proper nutrition in order to recover from delivering your baby, especially if you are breast feeding. Cutting calories and burning fat too quickly aren’t good for you or your new baby. Being hungry causes you to produce less breast milk and can also confuse your body to think it’s starving, which will cause you to hold on to extra fat. It’s important to be realistic with your weight loss and eat enough, healthy food. Getting all the necessary nutrients from healthy, whole foods is more important in the early weeks than losing the weight.

It’s no secret that exercise does the body some good; it works the same for new moms. For starters, post-pregnancy hormones are crazy. They can cause weight gain, depression, mood swings, hunger, and more. Exercise is a great natural hormone equalizer. It gives you the hormones to make you happy, build muscle, and burn fat. After a workout you are more likely to choose healthy foods to assist with the weight loss, bringing in the best balance of healthy food and activity. Even though you are now caring for a little one, you will still need your “me-time.” Taking an hour a few times a week to exercise is great to keep you happy and stress free, giving you more energy to care for the baby. Not to mention, exercise will make you feel better and the movement will help rid any achy joint pains from the pregnancy.
