Getting rid of pregnancy weight!!

Troubled about losing your post–pregnancy fat! Especially, getting rid of loose skin around thighs, arms and tummy is most difficult. Don’t panic; each new mum experiences such circumstances.

Keep in mind, you have spent 9 months nurturing a baby and the skin has been stretched to its extent, so it is going to take some extra effort to gain your body firmness back. Once your doctorgives you green signal to work out, begin a disciplined regime; in the meanwhile try these tips for losing those extra kgs:

  • Maximize your water intakeHydration will make your skin more elastic, helps in burning calories and results in more healthy and tight skin.
  • Breastfeed your child regularly. As your calories are transformed into milk, thus helping you to lose the extra fat. Read some common breastfeeding challenges and how to overcome those.
  • Consume protein rich diet. Protein contains collagen, which leads to muscle growth and helps in firming skin.The amount of protein will depend on your weight and the level of physical movement you do.
  • Pamper your body. Use an exfoliating scrub on your loose skin while taking shower. This will pamper your blood circulation and also create healthy and more elastic skin.
  • Massage with lotion containing collagen and Vitamin E, A, C and K. Apply it at least twice a day for fine results.
  • Say no to crash dieting. Don’t starve yourself, as when you follow dieting, you lose faster in the beginning but once you stop, the weight will be regained sooner.Always try to reduce weight gradually.

Ultimately there is nothing like

  • Exercise. Once your doctor permits you can start with daily walking or yoga. Then go slowly towards rigorous exercise like aerobics or cardio.
  • Try strength training. It stimulates muscular contraction and improves your body composition by reducing all over body fat.

Look! Never get disheartened if it takes longer to tighten your skin, in the meanwhile enjoy your new motherhood.
