It seems a difficult task for any new-be-mom. Because most new moms are sleep deprived and overwhelmed even to think about any type of exercise. Stating the obvious, your body just isn’t ready in the first weeks of postpartum for any kind of exercise, whatsoever!
Also to include, C-section moms find it difficult too to get themselves together for something which seems so frivolous at that time. But heck, it is all okay and a normal behavior. You can always start your exercise once you are feeling right about it, no hurry!
Breastfeeding is the best way to burn an astounding amount of calories per day, meaning, whatever you have craved and consumed during your pregnancy, flows out, just like that!
Though we require a lot of calories while breastfeeding, one never has to worry because that is what breastfeeding takes(a lot of calories) and that is what we wish to remove(a lot of calories). Ain’t it a win-win situation.
But remember one thing as soon as you stop breastfeeding your calories will, once again, take a heap. You can gain a lot of weight if you don’t adjust your diet and your exercise routine.
Keep an eye on calories and fats:-
Strictly say no to empty-calorie foods like chips, burger, and sodas. I say, eliminate it off your diet, completely.
Instead of that, eat a variety of lean protein, whole grains, fresh veggies and fruits, and also a lot of low-fat dairy products. And healthy snacks, always a green.
Maintain your sugar level by intaking only nutritious foods. Also, stock up low-fat milk and yogurt for snacks.
