Dear mothers, you took your baby in your arms and you started to brood about how my birth weight will go!
⭐ Keep calm, sit back and keep reading our article that will guide you! ⭐
After birth, you can devote most of your energy to caring for your baby. However, taking care of your own health is very important during this period when your body is recovering after pregnancy and you are providing your baby with the most valuable nourishment.
In the postpartum period, all mothers want to lose their weight as soon as possible. Slimming teas, various detoxes, and calorie-restricting diets fly in the air 😳
Dear mothers, in the postpartum period, whether you are taking care of your baby or breastfeeding your baby, you are constantly on the go and expending energy.
Information! During breastfeeding, the mother secretes about 700 ml of milk every day and spends 500-700 calories every day for this 🤱🏻 You can say goodbye to your birth weight in a short time with the energy you spend and the simple changes you make in your life.
Changing your eating habits may seem like a very difficult process, it’s up to you to turn this process into fun ❤
1. Write What You Eat!
In fact, it is a detail that many of us do not like, but those who take note of what they eat and how they eat to lose weight more easily!
Sometimes we lose ourselves and don’t realize what we eat and how much we eat. This is especially true in front of the TV or when snacking.
When we look at our diary, we can think, “Which time did I eat these two cookies?” Emoji That’s why it’s a great idea to keep a nutrition diary to see what’s missing and what’s too much.
Don’t say you don’t have time, it’s an app that will only take you a few minutes!
2. Take a Getaway Once a Week!
As you start a new week, make a promise to yourself, say that if I eat enough and balanced this week, I will eat my bread with olive oil on Sunday morning, I will reward myself like a monster and I will lose weight ❗
Yes, I am serious! 😊
Don’t be bothered by the false rumors circulating. Declare one meal of the week as a free meal! You will see how you lose weight with pleasure.
In fact, our biggest mistake is to skip snacks and load up on main meals.
We recommend our patients to consume 3 main, 2, or 3 snacks during the day. They do not suffer when weakening, they do not go hungry, and they weaken as well.
Snacks regulate our blood sugar, balance appetite, and accelerate metabolism. In short, “let’s work!” says.
I wrote a few snack alternatives for you to help you lose weight and increase your milk ⭐
1 Activia yogurt + 5-6 hazelnuts + fennel tea
1 cup of kefir + 1 cup of white chickpeas
1 medium green apple + 1 bowl of yogurt + cinnamon
3 tablespoons of oatmeal + 1 fruit + 1 glass of milk + cinnamon
1.5 cups of mint buttermilk + 4 grissini
4. Choose Whole Grain Products!
The difference between white bread and whole wheat bread is not the difference in calories.
Whole wheat or whole wheat flour, which we especially recommend, contains more “bran”, that is, “fiber” and keeps us full for longer.
The same goes for toast, pastry, pizza. Cut white flour out of your life and choose whole grain products instead! For example, if you want pizza, ask for it to be prepared with wholemeal dough and support it with plenty of vegetables.
Lose weight by drinking 8-10 glasses of water a day! 60-70% of our body consists of water and 1.5-2 liters of this amount is excreted in various ways per day. Our metabolism feels even 1% water loss. It is up to us to balance the water ratio.
We all know that the most effective and most important way to increase breast milk, especially during breastfeeding, is fluid support. For this reason, drink at least 2-3 L of water during the day to increase your milk and get rid of your postpartum weight! Don’t expect to be thirsty.
You may need to breastfeed your baby every time he cries when he is born, in fact, this is an opportunity for you! During lactation, the mother secretes about 700 ml of milk every day, spending 500-700 calories per day for this!
In fact, this means; You do not need to make an extra diet when you have a sufficient and balanced diet and meet the fluid requirement for your body ❤
Breastfeeding is your new sport ❤
Healthy and permanent weight loss is possible with a 70% diet and 30% exercise. We mentioned above that breastfeeding is your new sport. Apart from this sport, when you find time, you can throw yourself out and take a brisk walk for 45 minutes in the open air.
Believe me, this walk will be good for both your body and your soul 😍
8. Keep Your Motivation High!
The postpartum period can be a challenging period for many women.
Your baby brings joy and happiness to the family, as well as stress and fatigue. It can cause emotional changes.
Keep your motivation high and love yourself because when you love yourself, you don’t pay attention to external warnings and you can get through this period more easily.
You are the most important thing for your baby. Do not forget to neglect your own health!
