After a pregnancy of long nine months and tough delivery, your body needs time to recover. Your doctor won’t suggest you until your six-week postpartum checkups are done. Give yourself some time before you start watching you’re actively trying to slim down. These activities will include – a healthy diet, breastfeed, working out with your baby, meditation and cardio. For long term success and to keep you feel good along the way; we are running down a series of articles to help you lose and stay slim! Let’s start with eating smart!

EAT SMART TO LOSE WEIGHT AFTER PREGNANCY

Since your body needs abundant rest and nutrition to recover from delivery and labor, to fend off infection and to feed your baby, you shouldn’t start dieting until you are permitted by your doctor. Make sure you’re still consuming enough calories if you are breastfeeding otherwise your body will stop producing milk. Even if you’re not nursing, crash dieting can slow down your metabolism, making it tough to lose pounds in the long run.

Regardless of a particular diet plan, follow below tips for weight loss postpartum:

Check your Portions and Have a Balanced Diet. Take small meals and only when you are hungry. You need to have a balanced diet fulfilling all your daily nutrient requirements. Your diet must comprise adequate amount of carbohydrates, proteins, the necessary fatty acids and fibers. Meal should include seasonal fruits and vegetables, low fat dairy foodstuffs, fish, lean meat and omega acids. Whole grains, cereals and nuts are full of proteins and good fats. Consider, you need to eat healthy, but not much. The food you eat will provide nutrition to your child through breastfeed.

Nutritive snacks. No junk and fast food. Have some fruits, a fruit drink, oat cookies, nuts or soaked grams for munching.

Boost up your water intake. Ten to twelve glasses of water per day will help you to cut down on weight effectively. Further add lemon or squeeze in the seasonal fruit juice. Avoid adding salt as salt leads to water retention in body.

Avoid Packed ‘Non-Fat’ or ‘Low-Fat’ Food. These packaged items are loaded with high calories.

Do not start dieting strictly. If you can exercise with a healthy diet, it will further help you weight loss.
