Pregnancy is a beautiful thing, and you may be glowing when you’re carrying a child. But what happens after delivery is a different storey; magically losing weight is no simple task. Both average people and celebrities struggle to return to their pre-baby bodies. Expect nothing dramatic to happen in a month, but consistency is the key to success. Here’s how to restore the body’s health and appearance.

  1. Eat a healthy diet

Maintaining a balanced post-baby diet is critical – in order to recover from the previous 9 months of physical activity, you must nourish your body rather than starve it. Fill up on protein-rich foods like fish, eggs, and skinless chicken instead of fad diets.

  1. Breastfeeding is calorie-burning.

This may sound strange, but it’s a real thing! Breastfeeding mothers burn 500 calories a day more than non-breastfeeding mothers. Breastfeeding, on the other hand, will cause you to grow a voracious appetite. So please eat low-calorie foods like salads and hummus-covered vegetables. Drink water first when you’re hungry, and keep fast food out of the pantry.

  1. Experiment with new workouts to break through a rut.

Returning to the gym after giving birth can be daunting and stressful. It could be more motivating if you can incorporate exercises into your everyday mothering practises without feeling obligated to go to the gym. Try running with a stroller or weighted squats while wearing your son. It’s a lot more difficult than it seems.

  1. Use a freezer to transform nutritious foods into desserts.

Ice cream cravings are real, and they’re difficult to resist. Hold individual yoghurts in the freezer when you’re doing that for a tasty yet delectable DI frozen yoghurt treat. Place a Popsicle stick in the centre of the lid and eat it like an ice cream cone upside down. You can also bring real junk food in there because the cold would make it more tempting to eat.
