All new moms know that the worst fear and the biggest problem concerning their looks when they are pregnant is the extra weight. To make matters worse, they take celebrities as role models neglecting the fact that their image wholly depends on how they look. As a result they become more depressed and resort to junk food escalating the difficulty of the situation. We are here to help all those moms with these wonderful tips:
1- Breastfeeding is one of the easiest most fat burning exercises available for a new mom. It was scientifically proved that breastfeeding burns about 500 calories. As a bonus, your baby is better fed and is more healthy and immune with breast milk. Naturally, with this type of exercise, you cannot follow any extreme diets.
2- Rather than dieting, eat healthy. Even if you have extra fat, you will need this extra fat you are aiming to shed and more if you are a new mom. This means do not diet. But it does not mean over-indulge yourself either. Try to avoid manufactured sweets and junk food as much as possible.
3- Walk yourself into shape. Walking is great for new moms. It is not just a great exercise, but it is also simple, stress and pain relieving. It will help you shed off all those extra pounds while adapting your body to the post pregnancy state.
4- Tone your pelvic with kegel as much as often as possible. To kegel, contract your pelvic muscle and release them. Kegel is not essentially for losing weight, but it burns calories, just like any other exercise. It will also help with the back pain you might be feeling at this time.
So mainly all you need to do is: breastfeed your child, eat healthy, and do few simple exercises. Do not rush the results and try to focus on the blessing of motherhood.
