Losing pregnancy weight doesn’t have to be this super challenging/daunting task. It can happen pretty easily and naturally if you you take a note of these tips while you are pregnant and after. Of course, this is what worked for me, so I can’t make you any promises but hopefully one of the tips listed below helps you to shed at least some of your baby weight.
- Watch what you eat while you are pregnant. I KNOW. I KNOW. But seriously, if you aren’t a gym going person in general, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll start hitting the gym hardcore after baby gets here. So spare yourself the hassle and curb the indulgences PRE-BABY.
- Keep your metabolism going by snacking, a lot. Don’t let yourself get hungry (snacking a lot also helped with my morning sickness) Hunger=extra weight gain. Snacking all the time on healthy treats like fruit, trail mix, and popcorn will keep you full between meals and keep you from overeating at meal time (both pre-baby and after.)
- Drink tons of water. I prefer flavored selzter water, but whatever you do STAY AWAY from soda.
- Breastfeed. Period. If you can, do it. Trust me, I know how hard it is, but if you can get through the first few weeks you’re home free and the weight loss benefits can’t be beat. Even if you are supplementing with formula, any little bit helps. Besides, it’s the best thing in the world for your baby. If you are having trouble with your milk supply, I recommend Fenugreek tablets. Taking these tablets has more than doubled my supply. so get them here. Almonds and Oatmeal are also great for milk supply.
