Wondering how to get back to your pre-pregnancy weight? Here are three super easy tips to help you do so.
1. Don’t Diet
I know, I know – don’t diet you say? Yes, I do say, and here’s why.
When you diet, your mental state enters a frenzy of thought responses which toggle down to your day-to-day activities.
You’ll be super cautious of what you’re eating, you’ll have a tendency to not eat how you should be, and you may also stress yourself out more which can actually lead to overeating.
Instead of dieting, simply make healthier food choices as you go about your day. Stock your fridge and cabinets with fruits, veggies, low calorie snacks so when the urge strikes you to snack, healthy will be your only choice. Also, if you don’t already cook at home then start. If you think you aren’t savvy with a pan then consider investing in a Crock Pot and using that to prepare your meals.
Important tip: if you’re breastfeeding, consult with your doctor as to how many calories you need to sustain a healthy body and milk supply.
2. Move Your Body
No need to join a gym – think going for a brisk walk with your baby in a stroller, doing an exercise video while the baby naps.
Staying sedentary won’t help you with weight loss, you have to make a conscious effort to help yourself.
With tons of free exercise guides and videos available online, there’s a plethora of choices available to you without having to dish out money for a gym membership or even leave your house.
3. Stay Hydrated
Drink water, and lots of it.
No Crystal Light or anything else containing artificial sweeteners, just pure, refreshing water.
It’ll help keep your metabolism in check, flush out toxins from your skin, and work with your body to keep you feeling fuller longer.
