Post Baby Body: It’s Time to Reclaim Your Confidence
As you settle into the busy and often tiring routine of being a new mum, reclaiming your pre-baby body is likely to be pushed to the back of your mind. However, if you’re wondering when and if you’ll be able to fit into your pre-pregnancy clothes again, the great news is that it isn’t as exhausting as it seems.
We have collated some simple tips to help you figure out where to start and get you on the path to a fit and toned body post-baby.
It’s important to be realistic. Don’t try to crash diet – you need the calories for breastfeeding and for energy. Breastfeeding alone burns 500 to 700 calories and not eating enough can put a real strain on your system. Instead, try to avoid empty calories from foods like soft drinks and processed snacks.
If you have hunger cravings throughout the day, try to boost your diet with fibre and protein-rich snacks, like nuts, low-fat yogurt, hummus with carrots or avocado on whole grain toast. These foods will give you sustained energy throughout the day without packing on the kilos.
When it comes to post post-baby exercise it’s best to consult with your GP to work out what is best for you, but generally mild walking can put you on the path to reclaiming you pre-baby confidence. Once you feel up to it, strength training, with a focus on the core, is a smart way to go, as your core tends to be neglected during pregnancy.
