How to Lose Belly Fat After Pregnancy

How to Lose Belly Fat After Pregnancy.Once pregnant, women gain a considerable amount of fat alongside housing the foetus in their wombs. Nine months gone, baby born but all these weight gain remains for over 90% of the population. Truth is it is easier to gain weight than lose it, that’s not to say that it’s impossible. Mothers all over the world and even here in Nigeria have shown us that after birth you can return to the exact same size you were before you got pregnant. Take a look at how they do it.

Breastfeed exclusively

Doctors recommend exclusive breastfeeding for six months, it’s amazing because studies have shown that exclusive breastfeeding can you gain your pre- pregnancy body faster, you’ll be killing two birds with one stone, nourishing and boosting your baby’s immunity and burning calories at the same time. Don’t use exclusive breastfeeding as to eat too much, most women say they’re eating for two,so they munch on almost everything. If you fall under this category, all the extra food you’re consuming is making up for all the calories you’re losing while breastfeeding so there won’t be any difference. Still on How to Lose Belly Fat After Pregnancy.

Don’t Go On A Diet

I am totally against eve in normal situations, because the message your body sends to your brain is that you are in starvation mode, so your body will try to keep as much energy/fat as it can, thereby making the whole thing a waste of time. Now for a nursing mother, it is an absolute catastrophe, it will inhibit breastfeeding and weaken your system. Just eat only what you need

Exercise

While you don’t to register in a gym (you can if you have the time), you can engage yourself in basic aerobic activities that will spike your metabolism. Walk up and down the stairs, take your baby on regular strolls, get that skipping rope that has been lying idle around the house and use it and do cardio workout (they help speed up your metabolism).

Eat Targeted Foods

Since you won’t be eating way too much, make up for it in quality. Choose foods that are rich in needed nutrients like fish, milk, yoghurt(unprocessed), chicken, beans and lots more.

Drink Lots of Water

That goes without saying.

Catch Some Sleep

Now a lot of people might disagree with me on this, but reason along my line on thought. I’m not saying sleep as much as you can, I’m saying make sure your body is denied sleep. When you haven’t had a decent amount of sleep, you will be tired, and when you’re tired, your body secretes cortisol alongside several hormones that promote weight gain. As a new mother, it is advisable to sleep when your baby sleeps.

Finally, don’t stress too much about your weight, stress can only give you more weight. So relax, have fun in the meantime as you get your pre- pregnancy body back.
