Post-Pregnancy Weight Loss Program

Post-Pregnancy Weight Loss Program

Eager to get back into shape now that you are no longer pregnant?

For long-term success and feeling good, adopt a healthy diet instead of a starvation diet.
Your body needs time to recover from labor and delivery. Give yourself six weeks after delivery. Starting a diet before six weeks can delay your recovery. Be realistic about weight loss. Embrace exercise.
There is no magic pill to help you lose weight. A healthy diet combined with regular exercise is the best way to shed pounds. Lose weight slowly. Do not go for a strict restrictive diet if you are feeding your baby. Consult your nutritionist who can plan a healthy Post Pregnancy weight loss diet plan for you.
Pregnancy is an essential phase in a woman's life. During pregnancy, a woman gains considerable weight and continues even after the delivery and post-partum. Post-partum weight gain has its scientific reason and should not be a cause of concern because most of the weight gain is due to the placenta, amniotic fluid, blood flow, enlarged uterus, and fat storage. If you are thinking of undergoing post-pregnancy weight loss, try consulting Dr. Ashu Gupta, one of the best dietitians in Sushant Lok Gurgaon. 

 

“RIGHT TIME” to undergo a weight loss program after delivery
After pregnancy, a woman's body needs time to recover from having the baby. Your gynecologist/midwife may not recommend you go on a weight loss program immediately after having a baby. If you are looking forward to shedding the extra weight, you have gained during and after your pregnancy, try speaking to your doctor first. You can ask your doctor regarding post-partum weight loss during your six-week postnatal check-up, which usually happens after delivering a baby. Dr. Ashu Gupta, one of the best dietitians in Sushant Lok, Gurgaon, recommends that a woman must undergo or plan to return to the pre-pregnancy weight after 6-12 months of having a baby. It's because most women lose half of their baby weight by six weeks after delivering a baby. This is because of breastfeeding and the shrinking of the uterus to normal. While losing the rest of the weight needs some hard work over the next several months. However, post-partum weight loss may differ from woman-woman, and some may observe weight loss while some may not.

 

Post-pregnancy weight loss !!!
“Why and when is it required?”

As stated previously, post-pregnancy weight loss is considered only after 6 months to the one-year period after delivering a baby. A woman should consider undergoing weight loss only when there is no significant weight loss observed even after breastfeeding. You may be thinking that carrying out dieting can help you lose weight after delivering a baby. But that's not true; you need the right amount of calories, adequate sleep, and nutrition to feed your baby if you are breastfeeding. Breastfeeding makes a woman lose weight by helping burn those extra calories to produce milk. The other question that comes into many mothers' minds is whether they can undergo or follow a weight loss regime in Caesarean or C-section delivery. Well! Delivering a baby via C-section is becoming a ubiquitous method for having babies. Nowadays, it is mostly opted to avoid the risk of mother and child life during vaginal delivery. However, losing weight after a cesarean delivery is not very different from losing weight after a standard delivery.

 

HOW ???
    Can I lose weight after delivering a baby?

Breastfeeding alone can help you with post-partum weight loss. A healthy diet with daily exercise will also help you shed those extra pounds quickly. However, after six months, try consulting your doctor and enroll yourself in a diet plan. Your doctor may recommend you to a good dietician. Try following Dr. Ashu Gupta's advice, the best dietitian in Gurgaon, for a healthy weight loss plan. Below mentioned are some tips that you should follow while you are on the post-pregnancy weight loss program.
Drink plenty of water, fruit juices, and milk. This can help you maintain healthy body weight and detoxify your body and help produce breast milk for your baby.
Do not skip your meals; skipping your meals can cause fatigue, stress, and may add to your weight. Try to consume at least 5-6 meals a day with healthy snacks between your three meals.
Try to include fiber and protein-rich foods to have a daily dose of energy and keep you full for extended periods. Protein-rich foods may also help you deal with post-partum hair loss and maintain your hair volume.
To be realistic, many women may not achieve the pre-pregnancy shape and body and may have a softer belly, larger waistline, and broader hips. Try making goals about your new body and make it perfect. 
Try to limit sugar, sweets, fried or processed foods as it will not do any good to your body. These foods are low or negligible in calories and stress your body to release bad hormones that may further deteriorate your health.
A healthy diet combined with regular exercise may help you lose fat quickly rather than excessive dieting or exercising.
Also, doctors from the best diet clinic note that rapid weight loss is not a healthy option. So start losing weight steadily. Try eating less and burn your calories more by including physical activities like exercise, yoga, or simply walking for 30 minutes daily.
Do not rush or overdo it. Start with walking along with your baby in a stroller. It is also a great way to add physical exercise to your daily routine. Before getting involved in strenuous activities, try consulting your gynecologist, whether it is good to start or you should wait for some time.
