Having a baby changes your body, your mind and your entire life. Though having a baby is a rewarding experience that brings joys to last a lifetime, the toll that pregnancy takes on a woman's body is sometimes harsh. Though it is sometimes difficult, it is very possible to lose weight quickly after having a baby. Returning to your pre-pregnancy body requires dedication and persistence.
Breastfeed your baby instead of using formula. This will help you to lose weight quickly because breastfeeding burns about 500 extra calories every day. La Leche League International states that women who breastfeed lose about 1.3 to 1.6 lb. each month, just from breastfeeding. If you are having trouble getting the baby to latch on, buy a breast pump and express your milk to give to your baby. This will also burn extra calories.
Drink water often, even when you don't feel thirsty. Drinking water not only increases your breast milk supply but also helps the body to burn fat faster, according to Breastfeeding.com. The site recommends drinking at least eight glasses of water per day. Buying a reusable water bottle and refilling it will help you save money. It will also help you to drink more water because you can take the bottle with you wherever you go.
Exercise more often to lose weight quickly after having a baby. The National Institutes for Health recommends doing aerobic physical activity three times a week or more for at least 30 minutes at a time. Talk to your doctor before you start exercising to make sure your body is ready. When you are ready to exercise, you can even get a special type of stroller to take your baby jogging or lie on the floor next to your baby to do crunches and push-ups.
Reduce your caloric intake by eating smaller but more frequent meals. Eating more fruits and vegetables and fewer processed foods, such as chips and crackers, will help reduce your caloric intake. The National Institutes of Health states that if you eat 500 fewer calories every day, you will lose a pound each week. Combining a reduction of calories (but still consuming at least 1,200 calories per day) with exercising and breastfeeding will really accelerate your fat loss.
Seek help if you are stressed or depressed. Negative emotions can take a toll on your health in more ways than one. If you feel overwhelmed, you may be more inclined to overeat or eat junk foods. On days when you feel extra stressed out, call a friend or family member to get some help taking care of the baby, even if it is just for a few hours.
