Default TOP 10 Tips to loose weight post pregnancy

7 easy tips to shed your weight post pregnancy

Mommies, did you know that breastfeeding burns 600 to 800 calories a day? Some lucky women can drop all their baby fat, and then some, through breastfeeding alone. But as soon as you stop breastfeeding, or begin supplementing your baby's diet with solids, your calorie needs will plummet. You could really pack on the weight if you don't adjust your diet downward and/or your exercise routine upward.

Eating fiber rich food is helpful in slowing down digestion and reducing hunger hormone levels. Additionally, soluble fiber is fermented into short-chain fatty acids in the gut. These help increase levels of the fullness hormones. These effects on digestion may help reduce calorie intake, though results of studies overall are mixed.

Motherhood comes with a share of extra responsibilities and pressures and it is natural to feel overwhelmed at times. Try to unwind yourself by breathing exercises, meditation, some relaxation exercises, and herbal teas like chamomile herb tea which naturally de-stress you.

Instead of going for three big meals in a day, spread out your food through six meals in a day. Keep the portions smaller, so that you do not feel too heavy at once. Eating six small meals instead of three big ones will also mean you do not stay hungry in between.

It may seem impossible to get a full eight hours of sleep when you have a baby summoning you like clockwork throughout the night, but being sleep deprived could make it harder for you to shed the baby weight. When you're tired, your body releases cortisol and other stress hormones that can promote weight gain.

Eating too much sugar can send your blood-sugar levels on a roller-coaster ride. And when your blood sugar drops, you're more likely to eat the first thing you can get your hands on. So skip the sugary treats. To avoid temptation, keep only nutritious foods at your fingertips. Also, eat high-fiber snacks like figs and raisins or whole-wheat crackers with veggies, suggests Rarback.

Sugar and refined carbs are high in calories and usually low in nutrients. Accordingly, a high intake of added sugar and refined carbs is associated with an increase in weight, diabetes, heart disease and some cancers. Common sources of sugar include sugary drinks, fruit juice, any type of plain sugar, white flour, sweet spreads, cakes, biscuits, pastries and other baked goods.
