Are you struggling to lose weight? Are you frustrated or feeling so angry for not being able to lose weight after all the exercises and diet programs that you have joined? If your answer is yes, read on. If you’re reading this article, chances are you or someone you know has gained weight during or after pregnancy.
During your pregnancy, you have gone through several hormonal changes. You must have remembered having desperate cravings. If you are pregnant right now and you like to avoid gaining too much weight, then there’s still time for you to control your cravings to lessen the extra pounds. But if you’re not, then it’s never too late to start now.
Because of the hormonal changes that you have experienced, you are unable to control your food intake for some psychological reason. This gave you extra weight and fats. Study shows that fat cells are permanent in the body and can’t be removed but it doesn’t mean that you would no longer have the chance to lose weight because we can “shrink” these cells.
If you have gained around 20-30 pounds, it will take months or years to be back to the weight you had before pregnancy. You have to be really patient with your body. Don’t force yourself to reach the goal right away.
It’s not recommended that you start to punish yourself with dieting through limiting your food intake especially after pregnancy. During around 6 to 9 months you’re expected to breast-feed your child which is much more important than gaining back the usual appearance. You need to eat healthy for the baby.
Eat well and exercise. Make sure your meal consists of all the nutrients that’s needed. Play badminton matches with some friends during weekends so you could also have fun and relive your social relationships after your 9-month holiday.
Discover the ways to lose weight without having to take health risks and staying healthy at the same time. As you read this line, you must realize that losing weight is not an issue of vanity but a health issue.
