Your body needs to recover after you’ve delivered a baby. Don’t quit eating altogether. Rather, eat healthy just like you used to during your pregnancy. Start with gentle exercises in the early weeks after your baby’s birth. Make sure you don’t move on to any heavy exercises very soon as your body is still in a phase of recovery for a few months after giving birth.

How Many Calories To Burn In One Day!

Don’t be adamant as to the number of calories to lose in the first few months after your delivery. There is no certain number of calories that you just need to lose in your postnatal period. It depends a lot on your current weight as well as on how actively you are breastfeeding. According to dieticians, an average woman needs to have at least 2,000 calories every day post pregnancy in order to remain healthy.

Taking out time for yourself after the birth of your little munchkin can be quite tricky and difficult. Although once the routine is set and you start exercising, make sure that you don’t exert yourself too much. Before starting any of the exercises, visit your doctor to know which exercises are safe for you to perform.

You can start with the basic pelvic floor exercises, walking and stretching.  Wait for about a month and a half before you move to the harder ones. If you can’t take out time for walking on your own, then take your child out in a pram for a stroll. You can even join certain classes that teach exercises suitable for new mothers. This will not only help you lose weight but will also keep you busy and motivated and help you make new friends.

Even if you have a small weight gain of one or two BMI units, you could possibly be placed in the overweight category. This increases the risks for you and your baby in all your future pregnancies and childbirth. Even if you aren’t planning on having another baby, losing the extra weight has a lot of benefits. It will keep you healthy and reduce the risk of many diseases.

Not shedding that extra weight could lead to complications such as high blood pressure, gestational diabetes, having a longer and harder period of labour, emergency caesarean section and giving birth to a big baby, if and when you plan to have another baby in the future.

This is a question that just about every new mother asks. Your body may not look exactly the same as before, but you will lose weight. Give yourself some time to reach the target that you’ve set for yourself. Don’t panic if it takes around 6 to 9 months to attain your weight goals. Make sure that you focus on your health and also set realistic goals for yourself. Monitor your health constantly and get a check-up done if you feel any unusual sort of pain, during or after exercising.
